2020 was one of the strangest, if not strangest, years we have lived through. Making 2020 even stranger, or out of this world, is the fact that UFO sightings nearly doubled in New York in 2020, according to Upstate New York.

The website looked in the National UFO Reporting Center's database. The National UFO Reporting Center has a database of reports from people who report seeing a UFO. The National UFO Reporting Center says it tries to not include "obvious hoaxes."
