|Unidentified Flying Objects
Do You Believe ?
An unidentified flying object, or UFO, is any real or apparent flying
object which cannot be identified by the observer and which
remains unidentified after investigation.
UFO's are they real ? A phenomena as real as Spirits and Ghosts
and still as far as "we know" with no concrete proof! Or is there ?
They have been seen all over the world, there are those who claim
to be abductee's and Science fervently research the possibilities
and facts as well as theories. You must ask yourself the question
that if there is absolutely no proof then why does it intrigue so many
that our Government is involved ? In a Galaxy where there are still
undiscovered planets and so much more to learn, why would we be
such a conceited race to think we are the only life within it ?
Yet the topic of UFO's is one that is romanticized and capitalized
upon by many. The War of the Worlds was an episode of the
American radio drama anthology series Mercury Theatre on the Air.
Directed by Orson Welles, the episode was an adaptation of H. G.
Wells' classic novel The War of the Worlds (1898), and was
performed as a Halloween special on October 30, 1938.
The live, 60 minute broadcast, presented mostly as a series of
news bulletins, frightened many listeners into believing that an
actual Martian invasion was in progress. There was public outcry
against the episode, but it launched Welles to great fame.
Welles's adaptation is possibly the most successful radio dramatic
production in history. It was one of the Radio Project's first studies
The TV Series the X Files was supposed to be based on actual
unexplained happenings within our midsts, however it appears that
changed. Yet the program continued to visit possibilities and
maintained it's theory of alien abduction. Thus keeping it alive.
Recently (3-23-07) France has released that they will open their
files on UFO's and in one article it claims that they are doing this in
hopes that more people will come forward and share their personal
experiences in order that they may further their studies on the
So again I ask the question, is it real or fiction ?
We have researched and found some interesting material on the
subject. So you may read and decide for yourself.
Sightings of unusual aerial phenomena date back to ancient times,
but reports of UFO sightings started becoming more common after
the first widely publicized U.S. sighting in 1947. Many tens of
thousands of such claimed observations have since been reported
worldwide, and it is very likely many more go unreported due to fear
of public ridicule because of the social stigma created around the
In popular culture throughout the world, UFO is commonly used to
refer to any hypothetical alien spacecraft but the term flying saucer
is also regularly used. Once a UFO is identified as a known object
(for example an aircraft or weather balloon), it ceases to be a UFO
and becomes an identified object. In such cases, it is inaccurate to
continue to use the acronym UFO to describe the object.
HistoryUnusual aerial phenomena have been reported throughout
history. Some of these strange apparitions may have been
astronomical phenomena such as comets or bright meteors, or
atmospheric optical phenomena such as parhelia and the rare, yet
understood, lenticular clouds. Examples of these reports include:
During the reign of Pharaoh Thutmose III around 1450 BC, there is
a description of multiple “circles of fire” brighter than the Sun and
about 5 metres in size that appeared over multiple days. They
finally disappeared after ascending higher in the sky.
The Roman author Julius Obsequens writes that in 99 BC, “in
Tarquinia towards sunset, a round object, like a globe, a round or
circular shield, took its path in the sky from west to east.”
On September 24, 1235, General Yoritsune and his army observed
unidentified globes of light flying in erratic patterns in the night sky
near Kyoto, Japan. The general’s advisers told him not to worry —
it was merely the wind causing the stars to sway.

14, 1561 the skies over Nuremberg, Germany were reportedly filled
with a multitude of objects seemingly engaged in an aerial battle.
Small spheres and discs were said to emerge from large cylinders.
These sightings were usually treated as supernatural portents,
angels, and other religious omens. Some contemporary
investigators believe them to be the ancient equivalent of modern
