Are you looking for aliens and UFOs? Well, if you are, there’s some good news — there’s a new list of recommended locations for where you should buy a home.

What’s going on? has recently released a list of different cities in the U.S. for alien enthusiasts to buy a home “in the hope of increasing their chances of spotting UFOs or extraterrestrial activity,” according to a press release.

The company reviewed data from the National UFO Reporting Center and compared those cities with real estate prices.

Here are the top 10 cities:

  1. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina — $167,958
  2. Columbus, Ohio — $174,109
  3. Philadelphia — $187,772
  4. Houston — $191,907

Pentagon just released three UFO videos from US Navy pilots. Here’s what the footage showed

Why does this matter now?

This list is pretty niche, and it’s a little out there. But 2020 has actually provided a slew of reasons for people to be interested in aliens and UFOs.

Back in April, the  Pentagon released three videos of unidentified flying objects (UFOS). The videos were captured by U.S. Navy pilots, as I wrote about for Deseret.

  • The DOD said: “After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena.”

The researchers wrote in American Chemical Society Analytical Chemistry that they’ve developed a fully automated microchip electrophoresis analyzer that could help find organic biosignatures in soil — or life on other planets. Read more about that at Deseret.
