Where Buckeye’s Condition Ranks in UFO Reports

(WJW) — Data shows Ohio is one of the top 10 states in the nation for UFO sightings.

The information comes from research by Outforia, a group that bills itself as the ultimate resource for all things outdoors.

The research is based on reports filed with the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

Ohio ranks eighth in UFO sightings, eighth highest in the United States

There have been more than 4,100 reported sightings in Ohio from the 1950s to 2022, according to research by Outforia.

The most recent were reported in February.

Anyone who thinks they have seen a UFO can go to the NUFORC website and give the time and place and report what they saw.

Two reports were submitted on January 21 about an hour apart in Mayfield Heights and New Philadelphia.

In New Philadelphia, a person reported seeing two bright objects in the sky while walking his dog.

The person noted that the objects changed color and lingered for over three minutes.

About an hour later, a person in Mayfield Heights reported seeing two triangular-shaped objects moving quickly and silently.

“I wish I could have filmed it because it sounds amazing when I saw it out loud,” the person wrote.

Across the country, the most common report is a bright light in the sky, with the most common shapes being circles and triangles, according to Outforia.
