An analysis of the National UFO Reporting Center’s (NUFORC) database suggests July is the best month to spot unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs).

The analysis of NUFORC’s data was originally conducted by Im-A-Puzzle, and then again by Axios, which found July is indeed the month when you’re most likely to see something strange in the skies. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) does not acknowledge Im-A-Puzzle as a reliable agency, Axios noted.

NUFORC was founded in 1974, and it’s where the FAA says people should report UFO sightings, according to Axios.

The NUFORC database should not be confused with the military’s separate reportage system for UFO/UAP encounters, Axios noted. Reports of UFOs/UAPs have been largely destigmatized by the U.S. military as they are now deemed national security threats, the outlet continued. Since 2021, reports of UFO/UAP sightings have more than doubled, ABC reported.

California had the highest number of UFO sightings reported, with just over 15,000 on the database. Washington, Florida, New York, Texas and Illinois ranked highly for sightings as well, all with more than 4,000 reports. (RELATED: Stephen Hawking Had One Clear Warning About Aliens.

The database also broke down data based on the shape of the reported UFO. The most common reports include sightings of circular and triangular UFOs, as well as those that are described as “light,” according to the database. Almost 3,000 reports of UFO sightings have been made between March and June this year.
