Why Are There So Many UFO Sightings in Washington?

There are a few theories about why Washington state is such a hotbed for UFO activity.

Another theory is that the expansive forests and remote mountain regions make it a prime spot for aliens to conduct their experiments without being seen by humans.

Whatever the reason, there's no denying that Washington state has had more than its fair share of UFO sightings.
