Look up in the sky and tell me what you see. The sun and the moon, the stars and the clouds. Maybe you see airplanes, birds or bugs. But what about meteors, space junk and other things from out of this world? Have you ever spotted a UFO or unexplainable object in the sky?
Unidentified flying objects, also known as UFOs, are nothing new. In fact, the first well-known UFO sighting that put conspiracy theories on the map happened in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947. Nearly 70 years later, America is still fascinated by the idea of UFOs and alien life.
In fact, just earlier this week, one NASA scientist claimed that we will encounter alien life anywhere from 10 to 20 years. While we have yet to prove that life exists elsewhere in the galaxy, there's no shortage of alien sightings.
In fact, they happen everywhere. Now you can see where all UFO sightings have taken place since 1933, thanks to a new interactive map created by writer Levi Pearson. He used data from the National UFO Reporting Centre and open source software from CartoDB to create this somewhat dizzying graphic of UFO sightings.
How many sightings have been in your area since 1933? Do you live in a hotbed of alien activity? Take a look at the interactive map below to find out. The truth is out there!
