When it comes to holidays, June 24 is out of this world! Not only is today International Fairy Day, but it is also Flying Saucer Day. Whether you are a skeptic, conspiracy theorist or unidentified flying objects (UFOs) enthusiast, extraterrestrials, aliens, and flying saucers have been a subject of debate for decades.
Flying Saucer Day marks the anniversary when in 1947, pilot Kenneth Arnold was flying in a private airplane near Mt. Rainier when he spotted not one, but nine circular, high-speed objects in the sky. He watched the metallic like objects that were dipping and swerving and “flying like a saucer would” for about two minutes before they simply disappeared. When he landed, Arnold recanted his story and was interviewed by reporters. Folks have been talkin’ about it ever since.
Roswell UFO Incident
UFOs have been the topic of debate for over 60 years. One of the most famous incidents involving a mysterious object crashing to the ground happened in 1947 near Roswell, New Mexico. With rumors of conspiracy and government cover-ups, the Roswell UFO incident continues to be the subject of controversy and debate.
