Where The UFOs Are: UFO Hotspots
Alejandro Rojas

Live Science recently published an infographic showing the 10
states that have reported the most UFO sightings using data from
the National UFO reporting Center (NUFORC) in Seattle. I updated
my MUFON spreadsheets for a recent article in order to analyze a
spike in UFO sighting reports from this past August received by
the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). With the data already at my
fingertips, I decided to also take a look at how MUFON’s data
stacked up to NUFORC’s. I took it a step further to refine the
data and deduce where the true hotspots can be found.

Although MUFON has been around since 1969, the data I have is
from their online reporting website, which was only started in
mid-2006. Some of the old paper files have been imported into
the online database. Even though NUFORC, which began in 1994, is
a one man show ran by Peter Davenport and headquartered in an
abandoned missile silo, up until recent years he used to receive
more reports than MUFON. Now MUFON, with thousands of members
and hundreds of certified investigators all over the country,
receives around 500 sightings per month, although there has been
a recent increase.
