What is World UFO Day?
Founded in 2001, World UFO Day was created to raise awareness about the existence of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and, thus, aliens. Because many people believe that governments have been covering up UFO sightings and possess classified information that UFOs exist, World UFO Day also seeks to encourage governments to fess up and reveal all UFO-related knowledge to the public.

How do people celebrate World UFO Day?
People celebrate by gathering together to look at the sky, meditate on the subject and participate in other UFO-themed activities. The hope is that with so many people collectively opening their minds to the subject at once, we can mentally let extraterrestrials know that UFOs (and aliens) are welcome on Earth.
Or you can just watch a bunch of alien flicks, alone or with friends. Check out some of our faves:
