Flying saucers have always produced much curiosity among countless giving rise to stories about extraterrestrials or even alien abductions. It really is a field of interest for most and a passion for others. This has led to the coming up of a semi-scientific area of research called Ufology. Our world would be less colorful without the mystifying world of UFO sightings. UFO as well as Unidentified Flying Objects are abnormal objects which can be seen in the sky which keep the observers wondering about their genuine nature, their origin and way more. Whether these objects seriously exists or otherwise is still a debatable topic, as you cannot find any full proof evidence of its existence.
Several believe in the existence of UFO mainly because UFO sightings were reported in the past. Another highlight is evidence of sightings of the objects. The first UFO sighting has continue to remained a mystery. Nevertheless, UFO sightings today are practically synonymous with aliens. Huge numbers of people have come forward proclaiming to witness a UFO. A lot of sightings have occurred all through recorded history from World War I, when flurry of such incidents were reported.
UFO’s are the mystery of the sky with the population divided on whether they do or don’t exist. Many efforts have been made to determine and record their existence, with many people witnessing UFO sightings and recording UFO evidence.
One of the biggest projects to determine if UFO’s exist was Project Blue Book, conducted by the US Air Force in 1952. The projects mission evolved around 2 goals – to determine the threat by UFO’s to national security and to analyze the data related to UFOs. It was estimated that around 12,618 reports were collected by the project of which 6% were classified as unknowns, and thus defied detailed analysis.
The US government has declined its involvement in any of the projects relating to UFO’s but there has always been a speculation of the involvement of certain official agencies taking particular interest in the matter. Based on the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) there has been pressure built up on the government to release the secret reports related to UFO sightings and UFO evidence. The appeal has always been cleverly discarded stating that the exposure would pose a threat to national security and would be against security measures.
One such incidence of an unidentified flying object being sighted, and widely publicized and investigated, was the Roswell 1947. This incident occurred when there was a violent storm in Roswell New Mexico in 1947. The residents of New Mexico town were reported to have seen a disc-like object flying through the sky. Metallic debris was recovered from the site. The properties of the metal reported were different and strange. It was believed that the metal disc was a UFO. However, after investigation, it was reported that the object was a weather balloon. Evidence of such sightings can also be found in the biblical records. In these records, an assumption was made that flying saucers were the vehicles of fallen angels when Elijah was carried into the sky. There are reports that there were alien meets during biblical times, which proves sightings of aliens in the bible. People described it as a wheel within a wheel which could be an indication that it was actually an alien spacecraft. However, the questions concerning UFO sightings and Bible still remain unanswered. Much UFO news has been doing the rounds about people reporting such events. There was news of a UFO photo vanishing from British Ministry of Defense office and many more, to name a few. In modern times, spotting a UFO has become a common. Many describe them as flying objects which are shaped like huge spheres also called as flying saucers.
