The Pentagon has identified western and southern Japan as a major hotspot for UFO sightings, using 27 years of data that has been made public for the first time.

The US Government has launched a new website it says will act as a “one-stop shop” for the reporting of “Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena” (UAP), the official term for UFOs and unidentified objects in the sea.

A map released on the website of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) shows where the most sightings have been recorded using data from between 1996 and 2023.

The image shows one of the world’s biggest hotspots around western and southern Japan, near the cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, where the United States dropped atomic bombs in August 1945.

The area is one of the three most prominent locations for UFOs in the world, along with a patch of the Middle East that includes Iraq and Syria, and in the southeastern United States, over South Carolina.
