Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) have enthralled humanity for centuries, captivating imaginations and sparking curiosity. Throughout history, several UFO sightings have achieved legendary status, gaining widespread attention and inspiring countless discussions. People celebrate July 2 as World UFO Day to commemorate two significant UFO sightings that occurred in the United States in 1947: the Roswell Incident and the Kenneth Arnold sighting.
1. The Roswell Incident (1947)
This is perhaps the most famous UFO sighting of all time. In 1947, the infamous Roswell Incident unfolded, etching its name into UFO folklore. A New Mexico rancher stumbled upon debris in his field, believed to be the remnants of a crashed flying saucer. The U.S. military initially attributed it to a weather balloon, only to later modify their explanation, claiming it to be part of a classified experimental aircraft.
This enigmatic event has since become the subject of intense speculation and numerous conspiracy theories, ensuring its place as one of the most controversial UFO sightings in history.
