UFO Map: North America 1952Out of 1073 listings worldwide for 1952, 811 were in North America. 761 were in the USA alone, 47 more in Canada and 111 in Europe (not shown here).
This was the largest UFO wave on record for North America, and it took place mostly in July.
High activity continued in New Mexico, spreading East across Texas and nationwide.
Note the dense row of sightings from central Virginia, through Washington,DC and New York City to the Boston area. The "flying saucer" era was in full swing.
Some southern states, previously quiet, suddenly report numerous sightings. Mexico, busy in 1950 looks very quiet in 1952.
Compare this to 1947 and 1950.
