Texas Wants to Believe! Lands Top 5 for UFO Sightings, Have You Seen One?
The world is full of wonderment and mystery, and among all that are those strange sightings that can terrify a person. Ghosts, Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster are all things that people have reported seeing, but no real evidence of them really existing has ever really been found.
UFO's, on the other hand, have not only been seen, but have been photographed and recorded them. Plus, governments around the world have confirmed that something unexplained is out there. Stacker put together a list of how many UFO sightings each state reports each year and turns out that Texans see a lot of 'em.
The thought of being alone in the universe is one that people for centuries have debated. UFO sightings date back to before Biblical times, but many remain unconvinced that some kind of life is out there. Although, that opinion may be changing over the last couple of years since video evidence has shown that we may not be alone after all.
