Have You Seen Something Supernatural In Illinois? You’re Not Alone
Many of us know someone who has a good ghost story, or an alien sighting story... Maybe you even have your own. A new study has put together the numbers and has found the states you are most likely to have a supernatural sighting or experience.
It looks like Illinois has had a solid number of sightings, it's even in the top 10 for sightings in all states. So hey, if you love these myths and legends you may want to move to one of these top tens.
It looks like Illinois has a solid number of strange sightings every year, and actually ranks 8th overall for supernatural sightings. Illinois has a reported 4,025 UFO sightings a year. When it comes to ghosts, they come in at 2,529.
I'm still surprised there are more sightings of the supernatural in Illinois than in Iowa, I feel like everyone here has a ghost story, but sadly (or maybe thankfully) Iowa ranks 29th for supernatural sightings.
