UFO sightings are probably one of the most controversial topics among people today. It generates more arguments on a daily basis than Bigfoot and the Lochness Monster combined.
It’s no conspiracy that there is a lot going on in our skies we can’t justify. Whether its government crafts or something else, there’s no denying that we aren’t alone.
UFO Sightings That Are Hard To Disprove:
Regardless if you are a believer in UFOs or not, in some cases it is pretty hard to disprove their existence. Sometimes there is no denying the fact that something really weird was going on in the sky above us. Here are three of the most credible UFO sightings in recent history.
In the city of Phoenix, Arizona, almost 20 years ago (1997), several witnesses claimed to have seen a strange formation of lights in the night sky.
It was described as a row of six lights that were followed by a row of eight lights that moved in unison. This was followed by nine more connected lights. It was said to be slow moving, and hovered over the city in a V-like formation.
Witnesses in other Arizona cities also claimed to have seen these lights, however Phoenix was the first to report it. Although the governor of Arizona at the time, Fife Symington, originally denied the claims, he has recently come out claiming that the lights were extraterrestrial.
“I’m a pilot and I know just about every machine that flies,” Symington told NBC News. “It was bigger than anything that I’ve ever seen. It remains a great mystery. Other people saw it, responsible people. I don’t know why people would ridicule it.”
Battle of Los Angeles:
Something which has been popularly dramatized in media entertainment, the Battle of Los Angeles, was an incident that occurred in Los Angeles County in 1942.
With the United States still recovering from the Pearl Harbor attack, which occurred only months before, the city of Los Angeles went into a panic when they witnessed a large, slow-moving flying object floating above them.
There were hundreds of witnesses of the event, and even the U.S. military got involved, putting searchlights on the target and firing a barrage of anti-aircraft artillery at it. The incident was later referred to as a “false alarm” by the government. Many independent media outlets and newspaper reports speculate that this was simply a cover-up.
The Colares UFO incident, otherwise known as “Operation Saucer”, was an incident that occurred in the Brazilian city of Colares, Para in 1977.
The incident had over 400 witnesses, and they claimed that UFO’s had fired light beams at them which left scars of many different shapes and sizes.
This physical evidence prompted a rise in concern among the locals, who had their mayor request help from the Air Force. The government then conducted an investigation into the incident, known as “Operation Saucer.”
The investigation did not last long and the air force was quickly recalled. The files of the operation were immediately sealed and classified and were not released until more than 10 years after the incident.
