World UFO Day

July 2 is a day to celebrate the existence of Unidentified Flying Objects!

World UFO Day is celebrated on July 2 in honor of the “Roswell Incident”.  On July 2, 1947, Mac Brazel discovered some strange metallic wreckage in Roswell, New Mexico. The military removed the wreckage, and during a press release reported recovering a “flying disk”. The next day, they said it was simply a radar-tracking balloon and the incident was forgotten. However, 30 years later, a member of the original recovery team, said it had been an alien spacecraft. Now, it is widely believed the American government and military have knowledge of extraterrestrial happenings from Area 51 in Roswell, New Mexico and have simply covered it up for various reasons.

The first World UFO day was celebrated in 2001 to raise awareness about UFO’s and the presence of other intelligent beings. This day is also used to encourage governments to disclose any known information about UFO’s. You can celebrate today by keeping your eyes on the sky or organizing a watch party with your friends. You can also watch alien and UFO themed movies or, my personal favorite, relax with an X-Files marathon!

Happy UFO hunting!

World UFO Day

PurportedUFO2What 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:

War of the Worlds
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Mac and Me
Star Wars
