Tomorrow, July 2nd is World UFO day, a day dedicated to the existence of Unidentified Flying Objects. Whether you'd like to find others to compare sightings with, find new friends to watch UFO themed movies, or simply spend the evening star gazing in a group, this day has activities for you!
The first World UFO Day was celebrated in 2001. For more information about World UFO Day, news and research on UFOS, or UFO organizations and events near you, please visit World UFO Day.
If you would like to spend your World UFO Day reading about everything unidentified, unexplained, or unanswered, Cosimo has just the books for you. Cosimo offers a wide array of rare and hard-to-find UFO books with titles like Flying Saucers over the White House: The Inside Story of Captain Edward J. Ruppelt and His Official U.S. Airforce Investigation of UFOs by Colin Bennett, Left at East Gate: A First-Hand Account of the Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident, Its Cover-up, and Investigation by Larry Warren, Hair of the Alien: DNA and Other Forensic Evidence of Alien Abductions by Bill Chalker, and Body Snatchers in the Desert: The Horrible Truth at the Heart of the Roswell Story by Nick Redfern.
What do you think about UFOs? The Economist magazine just issued a tongue-in-cheek article "Everything You Need to Know About UFOs" referring to reports by the National UFO Reporting Centre, a non-profit, that has
catalogued almost 90,000 reported sightings of UFOs since 1974, stating: "It turns out that aliens are considerate. They seldom disturb earthlings during working or sleeping hours. Rather, they tend
to arrive in the evening, especially on Fridays, when folks are sitting
on the front porch nursing their fourth beer, the better to appreciate
flashing lights in the heavens (see chart). The state aliens like best
is Washington—a finding that pre-dates the legalisation of pot there.
Other popular destinations are also near the Canadian border, where the
Northern lights are sometimes visible. UFOs tend to shun big cities,
where there are lots of other lights, and daylight hours, when people
might think they were just aeroplanes."
Whether you agree with this skeptical view of The Economist, or just want to honor World UFO Day, scan the night skies tonight for any unidentified flying objects, and judge for yourself.
