Louisiana is a state full of stories about hauntings, monsters in swamps, curses, and other paranormal activities. But its not just what you find in old buildings, or dark swamps, there's a lot to be concerned with in the sky too.

Look, there have been plenty of stories about unidentified objects (you know, UFOs) in the skies over Louisiana, especially around Shreveport and Bossier City. Often its believed that Barksdale Airforce Base is responsible for this activity. Maybe not just the thought of experimental aircraft, but some believe that bases like Barksdale attract "otherworldly" visitors.

These stats are tracked, and Louisiana's ranking isn't even close to where we expected, especially based on some of the stories you hear around Bossier City. But go ahead and check out the list for yourself, and see if Louisiana ends up where you expected:
