The question of whether we are alone in the Universe or not is often the subject of heated debate.

If you take the thousands of UFO sightings across the world every year into account, it’s hard to dismiss the notion that we are not alone.

Now, data from the National UFO Reporting Centre State Report Index, analysed by psychicworld.com, has shown that Greater Manchester, which includes Wigan, is the fourth most popular UFO spot in the UK with an astonishing 79 recorded sightings in the area. There are likely hundreds if not thousands more sightings that haven’t been reported.
