The number of UFO sightings reported across the UK in 2022 reached nearly 500, according to a new data analysis by UFO Stalker. This is an increase of 12% compared to 2021, when 445 sightings were recorded.
UFO Stalker is a website that collects and maps UFO reports from various sources, such as the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC), and eyewitness accounts. The website allows users to filter the data by date, location, shape, and duration of the sightings.
According to UFO Stalker, the most common shape of UFOs reported in 2022 was a circle, followed by a triangle and a sphere. The average duration of the sightings was 13 minutes, and the most frequent time of day was between 9 pm and 10 pm.
The website also ranked the UK regions by the number of UFO sightings per capita in 2022. The top three regions were Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, with 16.7, 9.4, and 8.9 sightings per 100,000 people respectively. The region with the lowest number of sightings was London, with only 1.4 sightings per 100,000 people.
One of the most notable UFO sightings in 2022 occurred on June 21st, when a witness in Cardiff reported seeing a large triangular object with three white lights and one red light hovering over the city for about 10 minutes. The witness said: “It was silent and moved very slowly. It was definitely not a plane or a helicopter. I have never seen anything like it before.”
Another intriguing sighting took place on October 31st, when a witness in Edinburgh claimed to have seen a bright orange orb flying across the sky at high speed. The witness said: “It was Halloween night and I was outside with my friends. We saw this orange light moving very fast from west to east. It was too fast for a plane or a drone. It looked like a fireball.”
UFO Stalker’s data analysis shows that the UK is one of the most active countries in terms of UFO sightings in the world. The website recorded more than 8,000 sightings worldwide in 2022, with the US leading the list with over 4,000 sightings, followed by Canada with over 900 sightings, and Australia with over 600 sightings.
The website’s founder, John Smith, said: “We believe that UFO Stalker is a valuable tool for anyone interested in ufology and the paranormal. Our goal is to provide accurate and reliable information on UFO sightings around the world, and to encourage people to share their experiences and opinions.”
He added: “We are not here to prove or disprove the existence of extraterrestrial life or advanced technology. We are simply here to document and analyze the phenomenon of UFOs as reported by witnesses. We hope that our website will contribute to a better understanding of this fascinating and mysterious topic.”
