World UFO Day
Date When Celebrated : July 2
If this holiday seems alien to you, we certainly understand. It is a special day that comes to us, literally from out of this world.
World UFO Day seeks to get governments to fess up to the existence of UFOs. Many people believe that UFOs from outer space have already visited us, and a big, government cover-up is hiding the facts from the public.
The date for this special day was chosen because it is the date of the Roswell Incident, a historical event leading to wide speculation and belief that aliens have indeed visited us. In 1947, an object crashed at a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. This official explanation, is it was a military crash. But to this day, millions of people believe it was actually an alien spacecraft. Alien remains from that crash are believed by many, to be secretly held in Area 51 inside a secret Air Force facility in Nevada.
Organizers are downright serious about getting the overall public to believe that we indeed have been visited by aliens from outer space. They are seeking to get the U.S. and other governments to admit to what they believe is a reality.
Have we been visited by extra-terrestrial beings? You make the call.
The "Roswell Incident":
July 2, 1947 is a date well known to UFO believers (Isn't everyone!?). On this date, Mac Brazel, a rancher in northwest of Roswell, New Mexico discovered wreckage of a metallic object on his ranch. The wreckage and the metal it was made of was strange. He contacted military authorities who investigated the site, and removed the wreckage. The first military reports referenced a mysterious, Unidentified Flying Object. These reports were later rescinded, leading to wide speculation and claims of a massive government cover-up of the discovery of UFOs from outer space. It also sparked fear of a UFO invasion and rumors of other incidents. That speculation is alive and well today.
