July 2 is celebrated as World UFO Day. The day has been observed since 2001 to spread awareness about the unique flying objects (UFOs) and the presence of lives beyond Earth. It was decided to celebrate this day as the World UFO Day by World UFO Day Organisation (WUFODO) for enthusiasts who want to know more about extraterrestrial beings and gather more evidence about it.
If you are a sci-fi buff who believes in the existence of aliens, sit back and know more about the various theories making rounds on the Internet about UFOs and their sightings , pick up a book or catch up on films about extraterrestrial beings.
Unique Flying Objects or UFOs, also known as ‘flying saucers’, are thought to be flashy looking spaceships ‘aliens’ from other planets use to visit Earth. With many sightings of the flying saucers reported in different parts of the world, the UFOs have been fodder for many conspiracy theories about the presence of life outside Earth.
The theories around UFOs and life on other planets in the Universe came to light in July 1947. Known as the ‘the Rosswell Incident’, it was reported that the United States Army Air Force balloon had crashed at Roswell in New Mexico. The incident sparked speculations on the debris of the balloon that looked like a ‘crashed flying disc’. Even as the US military said that it was a weather balloon, the incident had initiated many theories about UFOs and aliens.
