World UFO Day 2020: the phenomenon lives on

The annual event celebrates all things UFO related and reminds enthusiasts worldwide to 'watch the skies'.
Intended to help raise awareness of "the undoubted existence of UFOs", World UFO Day is a special event for UFO enthusiasts and researchers as well as for disclosure advocates who are attempting to encourage world governments to reveal what they know about UFOs.

The day also commemorates the best known UFO case of them all - that of the object which crashed on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico and was later covered up by the military.

UFO Day is also a time to look back over the last twelve months of UFO related news and revelations, of which there have certainly been quite a few.

Perhaps the most significant recent development was the official declassification and release by the US Department of Defense of three video clips of unidentified objects recorded by US Navy pilots.

Eight hazard reports providing additional details of the encounters were also made public the following month thanks to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Naval Safety Center.
Such an official acknowledgement that these were genuinely "unexplained" objects adds credence to the idea that the US government does not have all the answers and that something very unusual has been encroaching into US airspace.

"I'm glad the Pentagon is finally releasing this footage, but it only scratches the surface of research and materials available," wrote former Nevada Senator Harry Reid.

"The US needs to take a serious, scientific look at this and any potential national security implications. The American people deserve to be informed."

Reid, who has often spoken out about the UFO phenomenon, is certainly no stranger to advocating for the subject to be taken a lot more seriously than it previously has been.

"I personally don't know if there exists little green men other places, I kind of doubt that, but I do believe that the information we have indicates we should do a lot more study," he said previously.

"We have hundreds and hundreds of people that have seen the same thing - something in the sky."

Isn't the aliens being hostile mindset a modern view?  In the past weren't they depicted as teachers?

There's one thing about being human on planet earth is there are a plethora of things to choose from when you wish for a savior or try to make your fears manifest.

As science and knowledge about the world and universe we live in increase, the realm of paranormal is getting pushed further and further away. This is one of the reasons we dont believe in Trolls and Witches anymore. But there was a time when we were so sure that this was real that we executed hundreds of thousands of people world wide for being witches... Imagine that level of crazyness. This is why science and its method is the best way to go when it comes to investigating the world around us.  Bottom line... It doesnt matter if the whole world believe in ET visitation, if its not real.

It blows me away that people in this day and age still believe in, and pray to, their personal and all powerful creator... so it wouldnt surprise me at all.

Science didn't prove that there is no creation behind. But anyway, that's for an another topic.

I know that, proving something like that would be impossible. I was talking about people and their need to believe.
