Watch the Skies! World UFO Day

Watch the Skies! World UFO Day

June 27, 2022

July 2 is World UFO Day, established as a day for enthusiasts of spaceships, unidentified flying objects, and little green men, to watch the sky and collectively come together to discuss the existence that we are not alone. Both scientifically and theatrically, the topic fascinates the curious mind.

Public interest in UFOs began to grow in the 1940s, with the start of the atomic age and the beginnings of space advancements. The Roswell Incident in 1947 and the recovery of balloon debris caused interest to intensify when Roswell Army Airfield issued a press release stating that they had recovered a “flying disc,” which they later retracted, but not before conspiracy theories took hold.

I've read an interesting selection of books that clearly show (in my opinion) that the Roswell Incident is debunked. However, many more incidents of UFO interactions have been recorded and even photographed, which gives credibility to the idea of other life out there.

The topic of UFOs will always ignite an exciting discussion, with documents and testimonials available to get you thinking. Could it be real? What do you think?

Here are a few reads to get you started:
