World UFO Day

World UFO Day

World UFO Day marks the anniversary of The Roswell incident that refers to the July 1947 crash of a US Army Air Force’s balloon at a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. On the 8th July, 1947, Roswell Army Air Field issued a press release stating that they had recovered a “flying disc” from a ranch near Roswell. The Army quickly retracted the statement and instead said that the crashed object was merely a conventional weather balloon. On this day, UFO enthusiasts try to raise awareness of the UFOs and watch the night sky.
