If you want to see a UFO, these are the best places to see one

If you’re one of those people who is hoping to spot a UFO, well I can’t show you one, but I can tell you the best places in the U.S. to look.


Do you want to believe, Cincinnati?

The Mutual UFO Network is moving its headquarters from its current location in Irvine, California, back to Cincinnati for a permanent home. 

Self described as the “world’s oldest and largest civilian UFO investigation and research organization,” MUFON has close to 600 investigators in all 50 states and in 46 countries around the world, Executive Director David MacDonald said. 

Beginning in June, the headquarters will move to a space on Airport Road near Lunken Airport.

MUFON had previously been in headquartered in Cincinnati, but moved to California in 2013.

“Cincinnati is centrally located and is a more welcoming place to do business,” MacDonald said. 

MacDonald is also the owner of Flamingo Air, a charter airline based in Cincinnati.

He estimated MUFON receives between 8,000 to 10,000 sighting submissions every year, which can be made through the organization’s website. In addition, MUFON publishes a journal, runs MUFON TV, and keeps a database of UFO sightings. 

MUFON boasts one of the largest databases of UFO materials in the world, MacDonald said, with a mission statement of the “scientific investment of UFO phenomenon for the benefit of humanity.”

Upcoming report on UFOs

government-sanctioned report on “unidentified aerial phenomena” is expected to be released soon.

Luis Elizondo, former director of the defense department’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, told “60 Minutes” earlier this month that some reported sightings don’t have explanations.

“We’re going through our due diligence. Is it some sort of new type of cruise missile technology that China has developed? Is it some sort of high-altitude balloon that’s conducting reconnaissance? Ultimately when you have exhausted all those what-ifs and you’re still left with the fact that this is in our airspace and it’s real, that’s when it becomes compelling, and that’s when it becomes problematic,” Elizondo told the broadcast news outlet. 

The report is expected to be released on June 1.
