Idaho has the highest number of UFO sightings per capita

 

Idaho has earned a reputation for pristine views of the night sky, even opening the country’s first International Dark Sky Reserve near Stanley. It’s what some people are seeing in that night sky that is what is worth reporting…

In the past year and a half, dozens of Idahoans have looked to the stars and seen something they couldn’t quite explain.

The Idaho Statesman reports, Idaho has the highest number of sightings of unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, per capita.

Over the last year and a half, the National UFO Reporting Center received 164 reports of UFO sightings in Idaho.

By sheer numbers, it’s not the most for any state — that title goes to Florida — but Idaho’s relatively low population means our state had 9.18 UFO sightings per 100,000 people.

According to the National UFO Reporting Center’s web database of sightings, the last UFO sighting in Idaho was in Bonners Ferry on April 18.
