A UFO expert has claimed he has recorded a total of 450 UFO sightings in the past year at an alien hotspot.
The head of the International UFO Institute said his team is set to reveal proof of alien life.
Takeharu Mikami who is also the editor-in-chief of Mu magazine said his researchers have so far registered 452 UFO-like sightings in the region’s Linomachi district- an area known for UFO encounters.
He said that 125 of them can be backed by photos, and 24 others by videos.
“It is not a bird; it is likely a UFO,” commenting on one of the pictures released to the public.
The UFO lab opened in Iino Fukushima Prefecture in Japan last year, to “strive to unravel the enigma of these flying objects,” according to a report by local news outlet the Mainichi.
It is based in UFO Interactive Hall, a facility with UFO-related displays located in the city.
Director Mikami was quoted stating at the time: “Until now, even if UFOs were discovered, the information was shared only on an individual level.
“I hope the research lab will serve as a base receiving information, and lead to new discoveries.
“I’d like to get to the bottom of their identity.”
Iinomachi has been long promoted as a popular alien hotspot in Japan.
The nearby UFO Fureaikan Museum has a collection of around 3,000 documents and other materials.
It comes as last week five pilots testified to seeing 21 objects appear and disappear in Brazil’s epic “Night of the UFOs”.
While one of the Pentagon’s chief UFO experts has revealed his identity for the first time and claimed he has seen countless mystery craft.
Meanwhile, a woman has claimed she can communicate with aliens after visiting an ancient pyramid and says she has a message for mankind.
