UFO stands for
Unidentified Flying Objects.
Many supposed UFOs have been seen over the years.
Many UFOs are easily explained for, but just as many cannot be explained for.
Between 5% and 25% of all UFO sightings cannot be explained for or be identified.
UFOs have been seen all around the world.
Here are four stories of UFO sightings.
1. Roswell New
Nine UFO’s were seen by American Pilot Kenneth Arnold. Eight days later, a supposed UFO landed and crashed in Roswell, New Mexico. Thirty years later, a report was written, and many people believed that an alien body had been found and that it had been hidden by the government. It was later reveled in 1994 that it had been a top-secret high-tech weather balloon. The “alien bodies” were revealed to be dummies form the test flight. When people did not believe the government, the Air Force published another report titled “The Roswell Report: Case Closed.”
2. Minsk, U.S.S.R.
In 1984, a Soviet Aeroflot was making a routine flight, when they encountered a sphere of light that followed them for a few minutes. It was reported to have repeatedly changed shape during the flight. Many years later, another report was filed that a second crew had also seen this “UFO”. The tower that had the plane on radar also had a strange ‘second’ object on radar. A Soviet missile was launched that day, and UFO fanatics believed that it was sent to intercept this UFO. UFO enthusiasts also got excited when the crew members of the second flight all had strange deaths shortly after the sighting. One died of heart problems, the other of cancer, and yet another of a rare skin disease. Most people, however, believed that these were only strange coincidences. In the end, the government blamed the sighting on light refracting off of some space garbage.
3. Bentwaters, England
In 1980, security guards in a U.S. Air Force base in the U.K. reported seeing strange lights in the forest at night. The guards, armed with a two-way radio, went into the forest to investigate. As they saw a 30-foot tall craft, and then their radios went dead. When people went back the next day, they found a broken tree branch, some indents in the soil, and radiation levels were 25 times higher than normal. While everyone could explain the branch and the soil indents from high winds or some random object, no one could explain why the radiation levels were so high. Further investigations revealed that, in 1956, there was a sighting of an unidentified craft going approximately 9000 miles per hour. This convinced many people that UFO’s do exist.
4. St. Louis, Missouri
An American Airlines flight was going from San Diego to St. Louis. On route, the pilot and the co-pilot saw four UFOs, one large one in the lead and three smaller ones trailing behind. They formed a square. A controller in the St. Louis airport tower said that there were unidentified targets on the radar, but only two of them were there. Another plane about eight miles behind them also saw the UFO’s, and a Air National Guard fighter jet also saw the UFOs, saying, "Damn, they almost got me." Some people thought that it was a meteor or a fireball that was seen from Illinois to Iowa, but the UFOs were seen around 4 pm and the meteor wasn’t seen until 6 pm. The traffic controller on board, who reported the time, must have forgotten to change his watch, because the local time was about 6 pm, making it look like the Iowa Fireball. The two unidentified objects on the radar may have just been other planes, as altitude and identification were not on the radars; they just showed where something was.
Many people have no explanation of how some strange things happened when supposed UFOs appear, and there are many people who think that the government has contacted UFOs and is trying to keep people from knowing about it. Many pictures of UFOs are just phonies, but there are also many of them that people cannot explain why something looked that way. UFOs have been around for a long time, and some are seen in the hieroglyphs in Ancient Egypt. People believe that aliens visited the Egyptians because there are some hieroglyphs that look very much like modern airplanes and helicopters. Also, there are some people depicted with larger abdomens, elongated bodies, or very long fingers, while everyone else looks normal. Yet another question that some people ask is why would the Egyptians build a large pyramid for one person? They were very smart, so why would they build some of the biggest buildings of the time for one person to be buried in? Some people think that these are valid questions, while others do not believe in anything related to UFOs. What you believe, whatever it may be, is up to you to decide.
