UFO sightings in Maine and across the country are at an all-time high!

According to the National UFO Reporting Center and VizThis, sightings of what *might* be extraterrestrials have skyrocketed in recent years, and Maine is one of the hottest spots in the nation for UFO activity.

The National UFO Reporting Center has released data that shows from 1905 through 1980, there were less than 500 sightings a year. In the '80s, that went up to about 1,000, and in the '90s, it was up to 4,000. Now, it's getting close to to 5,000 annually.

Maine seems to be one of the most popular places in the world for UFO sightings. Any idea why that might be? Maybe the aliens have heard about our lobster.

Remember this video of the guy in Buxton who thought he saw UFOs in his back yard? Maybe there's something to all this.
