The Most Per Capita UFO Sightings in AZ?


The Washington Post published an article on the most per capita UFO sightings. The winner – my home state of Arizona!

The original article has more details including some interesting graphics. Check it out here.

There are many theories on why there is so much activity in Arizona, here’s mine: Arizona is home to Luke Air Force Base, Davis Monthan Air Force Base, and the Yuma proving ground. The Yuma proving ground is an absolutely massive stretch of land used for exercises and testing of various aircraft and systems. Some of the exercises can be witnessed from the greater Phoenix area and be mistaken for UFOs.

Now before you call me a UFO-skeptic, I am not claiming every incident can be attributed to the large amount of military air traffic in Arizona, but it is certainly a contributing factor.
