If you've ever wanted to be a UFO hunter, now's the perfect chance! Especially if you have some extra time on your hands (which many of us now do), you can pick up a new hobby and track down the paranormal. You don't even have to leave your house to go visit different reported locations, because there's a website with a map of all reported UFO sightings in Texas!

Metrocosm.com has taken information from the National UFO Reporting Center and made it easy for anyone to look into by laying all sightings out on an interactive map.

The map is easy to use and is covered in green and blue dots. The blue dots mean that it was one witness report at that location and green means that there was more than one report.

The green dots get bigger in size with the number of reports there are. 

You can zoom in and out of the United States map and hover over each dot to find more information on the report. 

When you click on a dot the date of the report, location, UFO shape, and the witness report or reports (if there's more than one sighting at that location) will pop-up.

Texas has its fair share of sightings that you can explore, and no they're not only in UFO hotspot, Marfa!

Most of the reports actually seem to be found in the major metropolitan areas like Houston and Austin, but especially in Dallas!

The interactive map has over 90,000 reports with sightings dating over a century to 1905. It's not quite Ancient Aliens-level old but we bet Giorgio Tsoukalos would still be proud.

The single spot in Texas that had the most witness reports is actually in Austin with 13 different reports saying that they saw a circle-shaped UFO in the sky not long ago on July 12, 2014.

Navigating through the site will bring you across so many different and interesting cases of UFO sightings throughout the Lone Star state, giving you plenty of info on where to go scouting for evidence.

Make the most out of an extended stay at home and pick up a new hobby. And who knows, maybe you'll finally be able to prove once and for all that aliens are real!
