UFO sightings are a worldwide phenomenon, with reports coming from almost every nation. Some countries, however, have more reports than others, the ones that continue to have the most UFO sightings over an extended period of time have made Educating Humanity’s Hotspot list:
The Welsh Triangle
The string of sightings around Dyfed, Wales in 1977 had a little bit of everything: UFO sightings, glowing balls of light chasing cars, and aliens looking in people’s windows. Best of all: a UFO that liked to hover over a schoolhouse; TVs, radios, and cars that stopped working for no reason; and even the teleportation of a large number of cattle from one place to another. Wales is consistently rated as one of the best places on the planet to see UFOs.
Myrtle Beach South Carolina
You may have never seen an unidentified flying object over Myrtle Beach, but if you live in this area, chances are you know someone who has.The Grand Strand has long had more than its share of UFO sightings. One witness to multiple sightings offers her thoughts………..”Possibility they might be from another planet, possibly they might be time travelers, they might be from another dimension. Some of them might be our military doing exercises out over the ocean”http://www.educatinghumanity.com/” Check the full story of Myrtle Beach UFO hotspot.
Located about 600 miles east of Moscow, the M-Triangle might be the best place in all of Russia to see a UFO. Residents of this remote mountainous region count mysterious happenings as part of their daily life: strange lights, unidentified flying machines, encounters with translucent beings, and weird symbols and letters written across the sky. There are even reports that people who visit the M-Triangle develop super-human powers, which may be why the place is under constant surveillance by Russia’s intelligence agencies. To read the full story on UFOs/aliens Russian M-Triangle. The image with this story is a carved monument in honor of the aliens visiting the region, the first of its kind in the world.
Warminister, Wiltshire, UK
The vast field of Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, southern England, is a stretch of verdant land steeped in history. It’s here where the ancient neolithic site of Stonehenge sits, an unscrutable pile of rocks wrapped in mystery. And it’s ere, or at least in the town of Warminster, where some of the U.K.’s most impassioned UFO watchers gather atop nearby Cradle Hill in the belief that they can signal extraterrestrial spaceships. In the 60s and 70s, local journalist Arthur Shuttlewood popularized The Warminster Mystery, leading to hundreds, perhaps thousands of independent claims of UFO sightings all coming from this small town. The most common and well documented sightings involve translucent, glowing orange discs that hover and then move in the sky with fantastic speed.
It is not often we get an opportunity to put an entire country on our UFO hotspot list but UFO sightings in Canada are at an all-time high, according to Canadian sky-gazers. The annual report from Ufology Research claims that between 2011and 2012 UFO sightings more than doubled. According to witnesses triangles, chevron, boomerang, orbs, spheres and saucer shape craft have been recently seen in in the skies over Canada. One of the most intriguing mass UFO sighting cases occurred in Canada in 1975-76, The Charlie Redstar Flap where UFOs were seen by hundreds of people and described as friendly.
Chile’s UFO Trail
Over the past two decades residents in Chile’s central district have recorded so many UFO sightings that in 2008 the town of Sam Clemente opened a “UFO trail”. The 19-mile stretch weaves through the Andes mountains, whose plateaus are said to make great landing pads for the spacecraft. Even though the area has long been known as a destination for UFO sightings, the move likely had a bit more to do with bringing in tourist dollars than it did unidentified spacecrafts. Along the trail tourists and UFO hunters alike can read signs that detail well-known sightings and visit restaurants, camping sites, hostels and cabins. And though Sernatur — the country’s official tourism service — backed the initiative, it nonetheless claims, “In no way can we guarantee that a tourist coming to San Clemente will see a UFO.”
On July 11, 1991 a total solar eclipse began over the Pacific Ocean and Hawaii, moved over Mexico and Central America and down to South America, ending in Brazil. In Mexico City, people reported seeing much more than a rare celestial event. In what has been called one of the largest mass UFO sightings ever, a number of Mexicans reported seeing a strange hovering craft as they were watching the eclipse. Sightings also apparently happened in other Mexican cities, but it’s hard not to wonder whether some of these people were just seeing spots because they weren’t wearing their eclipse safety glasses.
Texas is a UFO hotspot in its own right, always ranking at the top of MUFON and UFORC list so that must make Stephenville TX white hot. It has been the location of one of the most incredible mass UFO sightings in the history of the USA.
In January 2008, dozens of people reported something strange hovering in the night sky. It was described as a mile-wide, silent object that flew low to the ground. Some said it moved incredibly fast. A local newspaper reporter said it had very intense, bright lights. The story later made it onto CNN’s Larry King Live, which did an entire hour on the sighting. So was it life from another planet? Not so, said the U.S. Air Force a couple weeks later, explaining that ten Air Force Reserve F-16 fighter jets were the cause of the lights seen over the central Texas town. But it’s doubtful the Air Force’s explanation sufficed for those who witnessed the object. There is even a website dedicated to UFO sightings in Stephenville called the stephenvillelights.com. Follow this link to read the full story on the historic Stephenville UFO Case.

Colares Island, Brazil
Brazil has been in the forefront of UFO sightings in South America for decades, the government has recently made some strong efforts move UFO disclosure forward. You can read about Brazil’s UFO disclosure efforts at this link. There have been many notable and undeniable UFO cases in Brazil especially orginating from Colares Island.
The Colares flap refers to an outbreak of UFO sightings that occurred in 1977 on the Brazilian Island of Corales. During the outbreak, the UFOs attack left two dead and injured over 100. These sightings led to the Brazilian government dispatching a team to investigate under the codename Operation Saucer (Portuguese: Operação Prato), but the government later recalled the team and classified the files until the late 1990s. To this day the island of Corales is still seeing UFOs but most sightings rarely make the news.
There’s something special about Bonnybridge, Scotland. Since 1992, the small town has been the sight of an unusually high number of UFO sightings. In fact, Bonnybridge lies in what UFO believers call “The Falkirk Triangle,” an area of land between the cities Stirling, Fife and the outer neighborhoods of Edinburgh where people routinely report unidentified objects sailing through the sky. The Scottish government says it receives over 300 UFO sightings from Bonnybridge and surrounding areas every year. UFO reports have continued over the years, leading some people to believe they are real. “How do we know aliens aren’t walking about?” Bonnybridge Councillor Billy Buchanan told The Scotsman newspaper in 2005. “I have no doubt that Bonnybridge is part of something exciting.” Read the full story on UFOs in Bonnybridge, Scotland.
Earth’s Orbit – Space
UFOs were seen during Gemini orbital missions and en route to the moon. Shuttle astronauts have spotted them and so have Russian cosmonauts. More than a dozen American and Russian space travelers have spoken openly about encountering UFOs during their missions, yet NASA doesn’t want to talk about it. What are they afraid of? What aren’t they telling us?
Now that NASA has placed rovers on Mars and new technology allows us to scan the surface of the moon and sun, reports of UFO sightings has dramatically increased from space.
Arizona always ranks up at the top of the list on UFO sightings, it could be because of its close proximity to area 51 in Nevada or the often talked about alien base in Dulce New Mexico.

Nullarbor Plain, Australia
“Crossing the Nullarbor”, for many Australians, is a quintessential experience of the ”
“. Stickers bought from roadhouses on the highway show “I have crossed the Nullarbor”, and can be seen on vehicles of varying quality or capacity for long distance travel. This place first made its bones as a UFO hotspot when the British military began testing atomic bombs there in the 1950s. Since then, the extremely isolated area has become a hub of intense UFO activity. Numerous people traveling through its harsh desert reported having their cars chased by UFOs. These, plus reports of alien abductions, drove the Australian government to erect a highway sign that reads: “Beware of UFOs.”
Area 51 and Surrounding Towns
There are three good reasons why chances of seeing a UFO here are better then average: First off the Extraterrestrial Highway cuts right through the region, can you think of a better place to see a UFO when motoring around the western United States. Second it is home of the Little A’Le’Inn in Rachael Nevada, where like minded UFO enthusiast make a point of exchanging stories about their latest sightings. Next door to Rachael NV is the infamous, least keep secret on the planet, Groom Lake – aka…. Area 51.
San Luis Valley, Colorado
Located in the southern part of the Rocky Mountain State, this area is not only known for multiple UFO sightings, but also cattle mutilations, magic shrubs, and strange creatures living amongst its high altitude sand dunes. One small town in the valley— (Hooper, pop. 200— has had so many UFO sightings, residents have erected a UFO spotting tower. Some speculate the area’s large uranium deposits are what interests the ETs. Colorado consistently has the highest number of UFO sightings per person in the USA.
Waycliffe Well, Australia
You really don’t want to go to Wycliffe Well in Australia’s Northern Territory and not see a UFO: “Sightings are so common, that if you stayed up all night looking you would be considered unlucky not to see anything.” Supposedly, earthlings have been witnessing UFOs in this part of the Outback since World War II. But hey, if you turn out to be one of those “unlucky” sightseers, at least you get to lay eyes on Elvis! (In statue form). And wouldn’t you know? This very same place apparently has a vast beer selection.
