Sedona/Verde Valley UFOs
Proof the region has the highest UFO activity in the state of Arizona.
Throughout the journey to discover the area’s secrets it became paramount to start really getting down to the facts which meant sifting through a lot of information in order to answer the big question, “Where are all of the UFO sightings taking place in the state of Arizona?”
Historically, some of the strangest, unexplained alien encounters have occurred right here in Arizona. Rumor had it the Sedona/Verde Valley region was the highest per capita for all sorts of paranormal UFO sightings, however, this point of view often sometimes changed according to who a person was talking to and the source of their information.
Today there are four major networks posting real-time UFO sighting data online for anyone to view. However, research has shown the information on these networks are not synced together and has been gathered mostly by people making reports of personal sightings. UFO Hunters, UFO Stalker(MUFON), UFO Sightings Map (NUFORC), and Report a UFO all show remarkably different data.
The UFO Sightings Map map is based on data from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC). It includes over 90,000 reports of UFO sightings dating as far back as 1905. Clearly, NUFORC shows the general region of Arizona to be a major hotspot for the paranormal activity of UFO sightings in the nation.
Another relatively new interactive map combines the technology of Google Earth with a massive database of UFO sightings giving users the chance to see where all the ETs reportedly appear. Dubbed the ‘UFO Stalker,’ this map overlays Mutual UFO Network’s (MUFON) database of case reports.
Whether a person wants to simply look at reported sightings in their area or take look at UFO events on a broader level, the options for exploration are truly informative. Another group currently focusing in on the analysis of all these reports trying to get insight from the data is UFO Hunters who are enthusiasts of both extraterrestrial life and new technologies. According to UFO Hunters reports the Sedona/Verde Valley region has some of the highest sightings per capita in the state as well.
Arizonans are hardly the only people in America who believe that we aren’t alone. According to a 2012 National Geographic poll, 36 percent of Americans believe aliens have visited earth. Whether or not all the reported UFO sightings are really visitations is a matter of debate which brings us to the last major UFO reporting network who attempts to weed out the obvious. According to Report a UFO:
Studies have shown that around 95% of UFO sightings have been proven to be helicopters, airplanes, flares and different types of weather. However, there is that 5% that is uncounted for, leaving no explanation for what was seen in the sky.
A person doesn’t find very many reported UFO sightings listed on Report a UFO’s map for the Sedona/Verde Valley region. There actually isn’t very many UFO sightings found at all in the whole state. There is, however, the Sunset Point UFO where the clouds spiraled open and down came what could only be described as a “flying sun” at a place ironically called “sunset point” where it looks like the sun is about to set on a point.
What the Data Shows
Clearly, when taken together the UFO reporting networks data do indeed show areas that are hotspots. These maps together could someday become an invaluable tool in tracking and uncovering sighting trends as well as track the direction that the UFOs may appear to be traveling based on reports throughout the region. At some point in the future, someone will perhaps undertake the project of gathering all the data together in one place in order to make such possible. Until then everyone is left to make the connections themselves, however, what is present is enough to show something is taking place behind the scenes leaving clues along the way.
Arizona is definitely more active than most states in the U.S. and the Sedona/Verde Valley is a major hotspot for UFO activity. The reasons remain a mystery, however, researching the region and from indigenous-American folklore that Arizona is considered by many to be an ethereal place, a spiritual vortex if you will, a person can begin to understand there is some basis to all the rumors. For some the journey to see a UFO is very experiential while others somehow remain in the dark. James R. Bartzen III, PhD, for the past 35 years has researched UFO sightings in the region and how the stories have affected the population by creating a false belief thus hindering human advancement. His conclusion is the belief system centers on alien visitors in our midst is ultimately causing a “waste of a person’s mind” when that mind could be put to better, more constructive work.
“We were all given a mind,” he says. “People are buying into this idea about space aliens and UFOs, and it’s wasting that mind. Beliefs are important to know only if they want to be led.”
UFOs in the Sedona/Verde Valley
Recorded UFO sightings in the region go back perhaps further than most realize. The surrounding countryside is full of ancient petroglyphs depicting flying suns or what some consider Orbs. The people of the time must have been seeing something in order to take the time to draw the events in stone. Are these perhaps some of the oldest recorded UFO encounters in the region? Throughout the Sedona/Verde Valley region, the cliff walls speak volumes all making the mystery and clues stand out for anyone to interpret.
Cottonwood, Arizona has had its share of UFO sightings. According to paranormal researcher Preston Dennett of the History Channel’s UFO Hunters:
“They were looking at the Mingus Mountains which faced their porch when “an odd light” appeared above the mountains. It rose up slightly, then, as Larry says, “...it suddenly lit up the whole valley...It was oval shaped, and just hovered there for about half an hour. Then the light went out slowly until it was a small light and dark out. All of a sudden two more lights merged with the other and hovered there for a couple of seconds and then shot off to the North.”
A resident of Cottonwood saw a formation of six glowing object hovering in formation over the Cottonwood power-company substation. After several minutes, they moved away to the south.
Around the same time as the above incident, another Cottonwood resident was driving over Mingus Mountain when she saw a group of glowing orange spheres of light moving as if in procession. Seconds later she saw three military helicopters chasing the objects. The entire incident lasted only about ten seconds.
It has to be duly noted that it seems a little odd people are reportedly seeing, capturing excellent photos and videos, of what the ancient American Indians were drawing on the local cliff walls in stone 100’s of years ago. This connection is a little hard to ignore. There have been over 50 reported sightings of this type of UFO seen flying around the region. (See Sedona-Verde Valley UFO Orb Sightings (50+).)
Captured on video at the Bradshaw Ranch next to the Honanki site are the types of images the ancients carved into the cliff flying around. Were the ancient native American Indians living in the region seeing the same thing being captured on video today? These facts are beyond coincidence.
“Sedona, Arizona remarkably has so many UFO sightings people have literally stopped reporting them!”
If the people in the area were to report what they have seen the numbers of recorded sighting would truly put the region on top. The skies are undoubtedly filled with unidentified objects every night!
Suddenly two large bright, shimmering amber orbs appeared and streaked across the sky, low on the horizon, seemingly over the field next to my home. My cat saw them at the same instant I did–and both our heads moved across the frame of the window as the orbs streaked south to north, nearly side by side and moving horizontally. I shouted, “What was that!”
Sedona UFO Tours
Costing roughly $3,500 per pair, the goggles are pretty badass. They amplify 20,000 times more light than is capable of being seen by the naked human eye. Nightly tours go out with visitors equipped with night vision glasses, binoculars, and telescopes. According to many accounts, it’s in the last hour of twilight when many of these phenomena take place and the amount of activity recorded is staggering! One person going on a local UFO sighting tour reported:
I went out on a UFO Tour with Anita Owens and was blown away by the UFO sightings that everyone had on this tour.Looking through her night-vision googles made viewing the ships on the ground in the canyon so clear! It was truly awesome! We all saw a 3 large glowing balls of light merge into one ball of light and change color to a bright pink ball, so bright that it could be seen with the naked eye! What an extraordinary experience. A must do when visiting Sedona! Thank you Anita for sharing your extensive knowledge of UFO and paranormal experiences.
Another person reported:
My husband, Cody and myself went out with Anita Owens Friday evening, this is our second trip to do the paranormal experience. It was absolutely amazing. There was more activity during our recent outing than any of us could have expected. UFO’S landing, thrusting up and down, worm holes, flying rods, so many things came up in my pictures besides just UFO’S that it has made me a true believers that there is so much out there beyond just us.
Surely there were no UFO reports filed for these sightings or all the others seen as part of these unusual tours. To find local businesses in the Sedona/Verde Valley region who advertises they will ensure a person will see all kinds of UFO activity both in the sky and landing on the mountains around Sedona is mind-bending. Sedona UFO & Vortex Tours, boasts on their website, “I GUARANTEE SIGHTINGS!” A “UFO Sighting Guarantee” is just too good to pass up. UFO sighting tours truly fall outside the boundaries of a “normal” travel tour. However, this remarkable venture ran by Anita Owens has plenty of videos and eyewitness accounts to put the Sedona/Verde Valley region on top for having the most sightings. To have sightings in the region is common, so common they are not even being reported anymore but are now budding UFO sighting businesses. Nevertheless; after going on the UFO sighting tour most people report they will never look up at the sky in the same way again.
The company has been in business for over 10 years doing UFO sighting tours in the day and night taking on average between 2 to 10 people every day who somehow guarantee UFO sightings. (Taking the lowest number of people reported by the company of 2 people a day for 10 years is over 7,000 sightings.) You’ll find most of Sedona UFO & Vortex Tours UFO sightings are not listed or reported on any UFO reporting center database perhaps because these events are so common people have stopped reporting them.
Truly people have been flocking to the Sedona/Verde Valley region of Arizona for a far less tranquil reason than the beauty of the surrounding red rock mountains. The area is world famous for its paranormal phenomena above all. Sedona, Arizona is one by far one of America’s most popular destinations for spotting UFOs. Today in the region seeing them has become so commonplace people have stopped reporting them. The fact a person can find thriving local UFO touring businesses equipped with night vision glasses who guarantee UFO sightings clearly say the area is on top for sighting perhaps why the region has always been considered sacred and magical. The amount of activity recorded in the region is staggering including reported sightings of; Aliens, Bigfoot, Orbs, and Portals, all within the red rock mountain desert.
The truth is out there — and in the Sedona/Verde Valley are the UFOs to prove it!
