The Denver Metro area has had an average of 43.2 UFO sightings per 100,00 residents. While that may seem like a lot, it's nothing compared to Mineral and Huerfano Counties where sightings of UFOs are at 377.8 and 362.5 per 100,000 residents.


Larimer County has spotted its fair share of unidentified flying objects too. 282 sightings to be exact. That equates to 78.5 sightings per 100,000 residents in the county. Weld County doesn't have even half the unidentified flying object sightings that Larimer County does. At only 140 sightings, occurrences come out to around 42.2 sightings per 100,000 residents.


El Paso County has the most amount of sightings per county in the state of Colorado with 359. With the sheer amount of those sightings in El Paso County, that comes out to roughly 49.2 sightings per 100,00 residents.

According to, most of these unidentified flying objects can be accredited to military activity, satellites, and other scientific phenomena... Or that's at least what they want us to know. See more on sightings of unidentified flying objects in Colorado and other areas of the United States at
