University of Utah Confirms that Eastern Utah is a Place to See UFO’s 

A recent study done by the University of Utah where they looked at 98,000 different sightings of unidentified objects, found that the west is the best place to see something supernatural. Specifically places with dark skies like Eastern Utah. 

It also helps to have an unobstructed view of the sky which Utah’s eastern deserts provide. This is an area with low levels of pollution and the population is small, making it an ideal place for watching the skies.

If you visit this area outside of Vernal you might want to bring your mountain bike or your paleontologist tools. It has some great mountain bike trails and is known for the discovery of dinosaur bones.
