July 2nd is World UFO Day
you're looking for something to do today then look to the skies for
your entertainment because it's World UFO Day! Whether you
believe in aliens or not doesn't matter; there are definitely
unidentified flying objects out there! Let's get right into
celebrating World UFO Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Well, in the evening of July 2nd in 1947 a disc-shaped object
was seen flying over Roswell, New Mexico. The next day a bunch of
debris was found by Bill Brazel. That's right; this celebration marks
the day of the infamous Roswell UFO incident! It's one of the most
widely talked about UFO crashes so it's the perfect time to bring
awareness back to these weird UFOs that are seen every year.
Brazel found what he described to a newspaper as a bunch of
strips of rubber, tinfoil and some strong paper and sticks. He didn't
really think anything of it but heard people talking about flying discs
the next day. So someone went back to the ranch with him and collected
a bunch of the stuff. And even though it was reported in a newspaper
that the Army had the flying disc that crashed, the Air Force says it
was from their top secret government experiment called Project Mogul.
That experiment involved high altitude balloons with microphones on
them that were supposed to detect sound waves from when the Soviets
were testing atomic bombs.
But in reality, it was a UFO to many
because they didn't know what it was. It didn't have to have aliens in
it; it just had to be unidentified. So maybe it was just a big balloon,
maybe it was a flying saucer... either way the event has stuck with us
all in some way. So whether you believe the government or not doesn't
matter, we're still seeing weird stuff in the skies today! Look
up; you might be missing something!
So, how can you celebrate today? Well, if you're lucky enough
to live near Roswell, New Mexico then maybe you should head on over and
see if you can check out the crash site. Or just see how close you can
get to Area 51 without being scared away. I'm sure there will be plenty
of people in that area with stories to tell you as well as some photos
and videos to share of what they saw. You might even want to stay until
darkness falls to see if you see any weird lights in the sky. Or
you can stay at home and watch some documentaries on some of the
weirdest UFOs events that have happened. It's interesting to see the
contrast in stories when you talk to the eye witnesses and then you
hear what the government says it was. Sometimes it's believable other
times it doesn't seem like it could be what they're saying at all. But
it's up to you to decide what you believe. But if you want to
have fun with today you could always dress up as an alien and fly
around some sort of remote control device. Have it buzz around your
area and laugh as people point and stare at it. Then have it land near
you, look back at the crowd and then quickly run off. I'm sure you'll
make everyone's day with that one! ;) Have a great day and I hope
you see something weird!
