The 10 Places In The World To Search For Aliens & UFOs

For many years, people have been making 'crazy' claims that aliens are real, but are they really that crazy? For decades, mysterious crop circles and unidentified flying object (UFO) sightings have been making headlines in the United States, especially, and all over the world. Even archeologists have dug up remains of ancient civilizations, finding holographs and symbols that discuss "ancient aliens" who supposedly taught these ancient civilizations extremely advanced technologies for their time.

10 Multiple Locations In Chile

Chile is more than just the home to the mysterious heads that watch over Easter Island. It is also the site of the most UFO sightings in the world. In 2004, according to Express (a European news outlet), a photo was taken in Parque Forest in Chile where a small "bipedal" creature was captured.

It was not discovered until about 15 years later when an alien investigator found it. At the very least, he was appalled by the photos resurfacing. There have also been sightings by the Chilean military (above).

9 Wiltshire, England

England is not exactly known for its alien and UFO sightings; however, Wiltshire is known for exactly that reason. It has been described as an alien "hotspot," and they really play into it. With many themed hotels, gift shops, and tourist attractions, this entire town is just waiting for people to come and spend their hard-earned money, looking for aliens.

Of course, that might be a bad thing, since their most recent sighting was in August 2018, according to Newsflare.com. We aren't saying it's a guarantee that you'll see aliens or a UFO while you are in town, but it's definitely worth the shot!

8 Wycliffe Well, Australia

If you've ever been to Australia, you may have heard of the 'alien capital of Australia': Wycliffe Well. When the sightings started after the Second World War, just like Wiltshire, the town took the alien concept and ran with it.

Strangely enough, it seems that the UFO sightings are at their most common during the "dry months," or from spring until mid-fall. Those who try to make excuses for the sightings say that they are most likely aircraft or satellites, but the true believers know!

7 Joshua Town, USA

Joshua Town is a tiny, one road rural center in California. It seems to have an eerie feel to it, with its two street lights and small town feel. However, the real show is in the desert, not far from the town. Thousands of people go camping in the open desert, looking for UFOs in the clear midnight sky.

It is officially a national park and is an extremely popular camping site. Some on-site activities that you can look into include scoping out the many species of desert wildlife, walking the trails, and hanging out with rangers who can tell you about the exceptionally beautiful landscape, as well as all the supernatural legends that surround it.

6 Highway 3, New Hampshire

In 1961, a couple was driving south along Highway 3 in New Hampshire when they had a “close encounter” with a UFO, seeing the machine flying low in their area. After seeing the UFO, they report not remembering about two hours of their life.

This was one of the first widely-spread alien abduction stories. The couple, called Betty and Barney Hill, did discretely file a report with the US Air Force, but in 1965 the story was leaked, spreading like wildfire. The Boston Traveler even featured it as an article that year.

5 Westall, Australia

In 1966, an unidentified flying object was spotted hovering over a high school in Westall, Australia. The UFO hovered for a moment before touching down on a grassy baseball diamond, leaving the large outline of a circle in the grass.

About 200 students saw the small saucer touch down and leave again, followed by three other small spacecraft. Of course, when the entire faculty and group of students reported it to the police, no one believed them, saying that they didn’t see anything. This was one of the first mass sightings in the world.

4 Liverpool, United Kingdom

Liverpool is one of the UK’s biggest UFO hotspots, with about 17 sightings reported in 2016 alone. Some towns have witnessed more than others, the most coming in at about 13 since 2015. The ‘alien activity’ has even disrupted flights and departures in some airports.

In 2015, there was a delayed landing for a Ryanair flight in the area due to a UFO flying in the airspace. Of course, this isn’t exactly indicative of alien activity, but an unidentified flying object was definitely invading the airport’s air space.

3 Bonnybridge, Scotland

The people of Bonnybridge have been seeing UFOs and alien activity for years now. With an average of about 300 sightings every year, you have to wonder how many of them are true.

Even though the area has become somewhat of a “tourist trap,” certain locals have been trying to get past Prime Ministers to seriously investigate the sightings, as some people feel unsafe in the area. Unfortunately, though, there hasn’t been any Prime Minister willing to figure out the problem, most likely out of fear of looking ‘crazy’.

2 Broad Haven, Wales

Since the 1970s, people have been reporting alien sightings as well as UFOs in this area. Many citizens have recalled seeing multiple “silver men” walking around, while several school children have reported flying saucers in the sky.

Although some of the sightings have been debunked, the tourism levels are still very high, bringing in many people every year. There are even UFO tours available, where you can go to popular sites for UFO ‘sight-seeing,’ which is pretty cool! Sometimes, though, it is hard to have complete faith in how true the sightings are.

1 Roswell, New Mexico

Roswell, New Mexico is at the top of this list mostly due to the fact that it is known for much more than just aliens. The town is home to many conspiracy theories; there is even a TV show about the city called Roswell Conspiracies: Aliens, Myths, and Legends.

The Roswell UFO Incident, in which a flat saucer was seen in the night sky, is one of the most controversial. In the 1990s, the US Military tried to cover up the sightings by publishing articles about the use of nuclear test surveillance balloons.
