People love a good mystery, and what could be more mysterious that aliens and Bigfoot? We’re rounding up some of the most famous UFO sighting locations, as well as the states where you’re most likely to see a Bigfoot.
Roswell, New Mexico
One of the most famous UFO sighting locations, and subsequent cover-up conspiracy theories, has to be Roswell, New Mexico. Here, in 1947 UFO hunters claimed that the military was covering up their capture of an alien aircraft.
In 1957, it was believed that the mysterious sightings in the sky above Washington D.C. were UFOs, and there were also some unexplained radar contact at three separate airports at the same time. But reports were rebuked and the phenomenon attributed to changes in temperature that messed with radar signals.
Although it was later said to be caused by an electrical storm, drivers in Levelland, Texas in 1957 reported encountering a glowing egg-shaped object in the sky that they thought could have been a UFO.
Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia
An unidentified object crashed into Shag Harbour in 1967 and the navy had to be called in to investigate the mystery. Following an inconclusive investigation, the Canadian Department of National Defence classified the case as “unsolved”.
Sao Paulo, Brazil
In 1986, military aircrafts were sent to check out 20 mysterious sightings in the sky in Sao Paulo, but when the aircraft started after the objects, it’s been said that they disappeared. Some might believe they were aliens, but another theory is that the objects were ejected from a Soviet space station.
The skies above Belgium were home to a fairly significant UFO sighting. Between 1989 and 1990, 13,500 people claim to have seen large, low-flying triangle-shaped objects in the sky. There are even 2,600 written statements on file about the event.
If you want to catch sight of the infamous Bigfoot, this state has had more than 100 sightings of the giant mysterious beast. Michigan is also home to the Bigfoot Information Centre.
In Ohio, Bigfoot has allegedly been spotted 240 times – so head there if you want to try your hand at getting the big guy on camera. Ohio also hosts a Bigfoot conference.
This state has racked up quite a few Bigfoot sightings, with a total of 573, making Washington your best bet for making Bigfoot’s acquaintance. California is a close second with more than 400 sightings.
