Photos: Ten Colorado Counties That See the Most UFOs Per Capita


Earlier this year, we shared information about declassified UFO sightings in Colorado as shared by TheBlackVault.com.

But which Coloradans are most likely to see such unidentified flying objects?

That's among the latest questions the folks at FindTheBest.com set out to answer.

The site has come up with a list of the ten Colorado counties with the most UFO sightings per 100,000 people — and while Boulder County made the list, it lands far from the top.

Count down the photo-illustrated roster below, followed by a clickable heat map offering much more info about the number of UFOs spotted in every Colorado county. For more information about Denver and beyond, click here.
