The analysts used data from the National UFO Reporting Center and the US Census to determine which states have the most reports of UFO sightings per capita. The top five states reporting the most sightings are all in the northern part of the U.S., but the bottom five are all in the south, according to the report. 

The data analysts said this might suggest a higher likelihood of experiencing extraterrestrial phenomenon in the northern U.S. 

UFO Awareness Day is July 2. 

Here's the top five states with the most reported sightings: 

  1. Washington
  2. Montana
  3. Vermont
  4. Alaska
  5. Maine

Here's the states reporting the least sightings:
