Free State averages about 25 reported UFO sightings for every 100,000 residents.
Tincher said the analysts at SatelliteInternet.com used data from the National UFO Reporting Center and the US Census to find out which states have reported the most UFO sightings per capita in the nation.
“Interestingly, the top five states in the report were all situated in the northern part of our country while the bottom five were in the south. This might suggest a stronger belief in extraterrestrial existence among residents in the northern part of the US,” said Tincher.
Maryland, with an average of just 24.59 reported sightings for every 100,000 residents, ranked 44 on the list. Delaware and Pennsylvania placed in the middle of the pack with 32.67 and 30.35 sightings respectively per 100,000 residents. Virginia stands just ahead of Maryland on the list with 25.24 sightings per 100,000 residents.
