Unidentified Flying Objects have dazzled us for many years. The controversy
over the existence of alien life forms began March 23, 1909, in Peterborough, UK. “This
was unusual because neither nor New Zealand had any aircraft at the time” (Wilson 14).
This left no explanation for the strange sighting. The debate continues in present day
because there are still no answers to the many sightings that have occurred since. UFO’s
are real because the government is hiding their existence, the USA and Europe is a major
sight for UFO sightings, wreckage, and also abductions, many movies, books, and radio
hearings have been seen and heard world wide.
Many UFO’s have been seen through the country and the whole world. The size
of the UFO’s seen can vary from eyewitness to eyewitness. Some say that the ships are
very large and striking. Most of the larger UFO’s have been spotted in the country where
there is open space for miles around. I suppose this is because they would require a
larger more vacant are to land if needed. As for the smaller UFO’s most sightings of
these ships have been in the cities or other heavily populated areas. I believe this is
because these areas have large buildings and other structures that are more difficult to
maneuver around. Thus, having a smaller ship makes it easier to explore these areas.
According to eyewitnesses the UFO’s also vary in shape. Some are round with an
circular dome on top like saucer. It has also been reported that some are shaped sort of
like an arrow head. Many scientists have wondered what enables these objects to hover
unlike any man made object. An Air Force investigator said “We do not yet understand
the aerodynamics of these craft”(Wilson 22). It has been discussed that the shape of the
ships may make this possible. All witnesses have reported bright lights that can be seen
radiating from the UFO’s. Some have lights all around the rim of the saucer. The lights
may flicker at random. Others say that the light is a constant. Some have only been able
to spot the UFO’s by a distant light hovering in the sky above. The lights may also vary
in color, this seems to be the most common report. It was also mentioned that many
people have experienced side effects from these lights. Such as, blindness and in some
cases burns that are very similar to a burn one may get from radiation.
Roswell, NM has been known as one of the crash sights of a UFO and many have
found an extraterrestrial. A farmer by the name of Mack Brazel was walking in a field
near the town of Roswell, New Mexico in July of 1947 there he came across some
strange silvery wreckage that was unlike anything he had ever seen. The material was
very strong, but, oddly it was also very pliable. Other object were found near this same
field by Grady Barnett. He discovered a large disc shaped object that was very similar to
the saucer shape of a UFO. All around this saucer, both inside and out, were lifeless,
hairless creatures with large heads. Grady Barnett said “They were like humans but they
were not humans” (Wilson 29). The entire area was soon taken over by government
officials who investigated the object that were found by the two men. After a few weeks
of investigation and the after the object were cleared the are was once again opened up to
the public.
The government has been known to withhold objects that are related to
extraterrestrial’s and UFO’s. In the past, like in the Roswell incident, the government
released a statement that explained the crash as a fallen weather balloon. Despite the fact
that the alien bodies were seen by local citizen Grady Barnett. Also, when Neil
Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon for the first time they thought they may
have seen a foreign space ship on the surface of the moon, according to radio operators.
This was all denied by NASA and was shortly forgotten about by the public. In 1953
Albert Bender of Connecticut, editor of “Space Review Magazine,” was visited by three
men in black suits who appeared in his bedroom. The men told Bender to shut down his
magazine or face serious consequences. Albert Bender said “ Their eyes lit up like
flashlight bulbs” (Wilson 28). This was because the magazine talked about controversial
information regarding UFO’s. Other people who openly discussed such information
