Interactive map compares real UFO sightings to ‘X-Files’ episodes
Show creators apparently wanted to be as close as possible.
Makers of the pop culture phenomenon X-Files were apparently dedicated to getting it as close to the real deal as possible. A new map showing where the series was filmed in relation to where actual UFO sightings were recorded proves to be strikingly correlated.
The interactive map available on CartoDB shows UFO sightings from 1993 to 2002 (years in which the original show aired) with pulsing, green lights. The locations where X-Files episodes were filmed are marked with purple and orange Xs. The map changes as the timeline progresses.
Rebooted this month after 14 years off the air, X-Files is rooted in government conspiracy and the paranormal. The science fiction classic continues next week with the third episode of this six-part miniseries.
