Good question actually. Both of my sightings were in daytime, which is not that usual.
Generally sightings occur more at night and in more rural areas. But stats show that most reports are actually made in urban areas, probably due to
population density. Most ufologists believe that ufo's in general prefer to avoid detection.
Personally, I've never had a sighting. I really don't look too often either. I have read that the best time to keep a look out is in the evening,
5-6 pm. This would also be a good time to take pictures of the sky....Then again, I don't have any experience with this type of research.
Sightings will always be random events. I suggest its best to look when the sun goes down as that is when the majority of sightings take place.
Areas of less population seem to get more sightings as well. This is likely due to these objects not wanting to be witnessed by large numbers of
people most of the time.
Myself, I just wait for other people to see them and take pictures & video for me. Looking into the sky all the time would certainly get boring.
Sightings usually happen when you least expect it.
My first sighting happened while glancing out my window at the night sky one night.
The second happened at a drive in and it was a VERY close encounter.
