The visualisation shows the most notorious Ufo sightings and close encounters by type, with a focus on italian reports between 1900 and 2015. The opacity is proportional to the number of total sightings per region, and all the 12.461 cases are geolocated on a map. The top 20 cities by number of sightings are highlited and resized.
