Do you believe? UFO stands for Unidentified Flying Object. While this term refers to any object in the sky people cannot identify, UFO traditionally refers to alien spacecraft. UFOs have been reported throughout history, dating back to early comet and meteor sightings.
People have observed UFOs in all shapes and sizes. In 1878, John Martin reported seeing a circular flying object moving at high speeds through the sky. A United States Naval commander reported a red-shaped objects flying in formation over San Francisco.
The Roswell Innocent occurred in the summer of 1947 when an object crashed in New Mexico. Many conspiracy theorists believe the crashed object was a UFO.
All human UFO sightings are highly controversial and many teams have set out to find conclusive evidence of alien life. Project Sign was an official project conducted by the United States Air Force. Project Sign concluded there was not enough data to determine the origin of UFOs.
Scientists have provided countless explanations for UFO sightings. Astronomical objects, such as bright stars, planets, and even the moon have been confused for alien spacecrafts. People commonly mistake airplanes and weather balloons for UFOs. Everyday objects have been confused for UFOs, including kites, birds, and clouds.
The debate still rages on over UFOs and may never be settled. So, now I ask you, do you believe?
