UFO sightings across the globe are on the rise, according to a shocking map charting alien visitors spotted in the sky.
Conspiracy theorists and UFO ‘truthers’ now have access to a wide database of every single UFO visitor reported in the UK.
UFO Stalker lets visitors browse through thousands of reports of alien activity, not just from the UK, but from across the world.
An unbelievable 83,758 sightings have already been reported since the database’s creation, with more than 5,381 spotted in the UK last year – and the numbers are on the rise.
Created by the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), the site collects user submitted data and places it on interactive map of the world.
One user report from three years ago describes a dark and humming triangular aircraft speeding above Tamworth, Staffordshire.
Another one in Kirkwall, Scotland, from November 11 this year, says: “I was watching a red light in the sky, quite low down north of Kirkwall, which I took as a local flight north to Lerwick port light.
“It was rather brighter than I thought it should be at low elevation in sky. First I saw a strobe but then it stopped and do did the red light.
“I just thought it might be atmospherics, but then I noticed the actual a340 flight to Lerwick was also in the sky, which I saw overhead.”
Last month UFO Stalker collected 352 reports, a 24 per cent spike on September. The overall number of reports this year has also grown by 12 per cent so far, on 2016.
The creators of the interactive map believe that every single report of weird rights and unidentified flying object “brings us one step closer to uncovering the truth”.
Each UFO report is based on sightings of orbs, crop circles, alien encounters and even UFO abductions.
MUFON requires each report to be submitted through a five to 10-minute-long form including video and image stills. But not all reports are immediately accepted.
The UFO group says: “Each case that is investigated is given a final case disposition by the MUFON Field investigator assigned to the case.
“This is the investigator’s assessment of what the investigation found.
“The four case dispositions that a case can be marked are UNKNOWN, IFO, Hoax, or Insufficient Data.”
One of the most bizarre reports from the UK involves a direct UFO encounter by an anonymous person in Cambridge.
The encounter supposedly involved stumbling upon a seven-foot-tall extra terrestrial late at night in a forest.
The report states: “I get to the common, walk around the small forest area. Then I get this feeling something is coming, so I crouch down.
“And there it came. A shadow of what I can describe is an alien around 7ft.
“I waited till it passed and I started to follow it. I have my phone and try taking a picture but my camera is not working anymore.
“I followed the alien across the whole field. I’m about 75ft away and it disappeared in front of me.”
Another peculiar account from Cambridge, most likely from the same person, alleges to have seen a seven-foot tall alien, while carrying a “lightsaber for protection”.
Other reports include “hovering glowing lights” in Kent, a “giant triangle” in Bournemouth and “lights hovering over houses” in Cardiff.
But all of the witness accounts remain highly questionable without any concrete proof to support them.
A former Nasa employee recently stepped out of the shadows to debunk alien sightings as the alien craze shows no signs of stopping.
Engineer turned-space-journalist Jame Oberg, blasted all UFO sightings and said the human senses are not conditioned to understand slight changes in light and atmosphere.
He told Atlas Obscura: “Our sensory system is functioning absolutely perfectly for Earth conditions.
“But we’re still a local civilisation. Moving beyond our neighbourhood has been visually confusing.”
Further adding on his website, Mr Oberg said he has had enough first-hand experience with space flight to know that many UFO sightings are in fact nothing unearthly.
