he world is divided into those who believe in little green men inhabiting other planets, and those who don’t. In the spirit of exploration and adventure, we’ve riffled through the Interwebs for a route map to global sightings on World UFO Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness about extraterrestrials and UFOs.

This interactive map plots UFO sightings going back as far as 1908. From the looks of it, aliens have preferred visiting places north of the equator, and have allegedly stopped by in India too, in Kolkata, Delhi, and in Himchal Pradhesh. One input says that Russian artist “Nicholas Roerich’s travel diary mentions that they saw a silver flying disk in the Himalayas. They watched it using a binoculars till it disappeared in the mountains.” Click on the spaceship icon on the map to learn more about the sightings. Happy exploring!
