12. Colares Island, Brazil
Known as “the most dangerous place to see a UFO,” there is chilling evidence that this island was attacked by flying saucers in 1977. Coming out of the night, the mystery craft reportedly fired laser-like beams at the island’s population, killing two and injuring nearly 100. The Brazilian military conducted a thorough investigation, but the truth has never been determined.
11. Chile’s UFO Trail
Chile is famous for UFO sightings… which is why the country’s tourism board built the UFO Trail, where adventurers may (or may not) get to see an ET. For serious enthusiasts only, the trek includes four hours on horseback above 10,000 feet before hiking the 19-mile trail. But even if no UFOs show up, hikers will find themselves on a landscape consisting of 200 perfectly sliced granite-like blocks, thought to be a landing site for ancient astronauts.
UFOs are seen regularly along the Pacific Coast Highway, all the way from San Diego to San Francisco. An estimated one million people witnessed a UFO dodging anti-aircraft shells over LA in February of 1942. Add in every sci-fi movie from Close Encounters to Independence Day and the fact that the state always leads the country in unexplained sightings, there’s only one conclusion: if you really want to see a UFO, California is the place to be.
9. Gulf Breeze, Florida
This small city on Florida’s panhandle became famous in 1987 when a man named Ed Walters made public a number of dramatic photographs of UFOs — the result, he claimed, of his own close encounters. While researchers deemed the pictures a hoax, more than 200 other witnesses have since come forward to report UFO sightings in Gulf Breeze, many backed up by photographs and videos depicting UFOs that look exactly like those that Walters had captured.
