If you're like most people, the last time you saw a UFO was on the big screen at your local cineplex. But why settle for a cinematic flying saucer when the real thing is right under your nose - or rather, right over your head? It doesn't matter if you're a science-fiction fan, a thrill seeker, or just an average Joe who's always wondered, "What if ...?" If you're in the right place at the right time, you just might see something out of this world. Which is why Radio Times has compiled the following list of "The 10 Best UFO Hot Spots" in the world:

10. Sochi, Russia
Reports Radio Times: "Before the 2014 Winter Olympics, Sochi was not in the headlines for sportsmen in spandex, but flying objects potentially carrying aliens in similar attire. The Black Sea coast is a particular UFO  hotspot, where locals are said to have seen luminous objects, and flying saucers."

9. Broad Haven, Wales, UK
Reports Radio Times: "Named after the Bermuda Triangle, the 'Broad Haven Triangle' shot to fame in the '70s, when 14 school children from Broadhaven Primary School supposedly saw a UFO craft in the field next to their school, with a 7-foot being in a silver outfit coming out of it. After running back and telling their head teacher, he skeptically asked them to go off and draw it. Spookily, all the pictures resembled the same style craft, a saucer-shaped UFO with a dome on top."

8. Wycliffe Well, Australia
Reports Radio Times: "UFO spotters date back to World Ward II in this little spot on the Stuart Highway between Alice Springs and Tennant Creek. The Wycliffe Well Holiday Park seems to be a particular attraction. They have lots of UFO paraphernalia, alien statues, and souvenirs to get you in the UFO-spotting mood."

7. Mexico City, Mexico
Reports Radio Times: "During a solar eclipse in 1991, everything started getting a bit fishy in Mexico City, people started spotting UFOs left, right, and center. In the mid-'90s, someone managed to get some proper footage on a camcorder, while the UFO was flying over a restricted airspace. Then later, in 2005, thousands of people witnessed hundreds of lights and objects moving around in the sky."

6. UFO Trail, Chile
Reports Radio Times: "Up in the Andes, you may get more than just a spectacular view. The UFO Trail is a 19-mile stretch, which winds through gulp-worthy scenery and also is believed to have an alien airport on it. If you want to find a being from another planet, take a two- to three-day hike to an elevation of 2,286 meters, to the area of El Enladrillado, where the spaceships are supposed to land."

5. The Extraterrestrial Highway, Nevada, USA
Reports Radio Times: "Not only is this dusty desert road ideal for donning a Stetson and cranking up the Hank Williams, it goes pretty close to top secret air force base Area 51, where it's believed all the abandoned space ships get taken after they crash in the US of A." 

4. The Falkirk Triangle, Scotland, UK
Reports Radio Times: "The town of Bonnybridge supposedly gets a whopping 300 sightings a year, and local residents have consistently asked for a proper government investigation into these oddities. Previous witnesses have seen flying discs, floating cigar-shaped objects, and cubes."

3. Nazca City, Peru
Reports Radio Times: "A couple of hundred miles from the capital of Lima, there are hundreds of weird giant shapes, otherwise known as ancient geoglyphs, which have been there since 1927. These full-scale designs can only be seen in their entirety from an altitude of around 1,500 feet, and, as the ancient Nazca people couldn't fly, it's prompted academics to wonder why on earth they were created. Alien enthusiasts believe that they were built as spacecraft landing strips."

2. Warminster, Wiltshire, UK
Reports Radio Times: "In 1961 it was reported that four people in [Warminster] saw a UFO leaving a trail of sparks. In 1964, more odd happenings occurred. Eye-witnesses claim they were woken up by peculiar sounds (like twigs or leaves being pulled over the roof and a chimney crashing to the ground). The ancient and mysterious site of Stonehenge is not too far away, adding to intrigue in the area."

1. California, USA
Reports Radio Times: "This spooky area of the U.S. has had more UFO sightings than anywhere else in the country. UFOs are commonly spotted along the Pacific Coast Highway, from San Diego to San Francisco."
