Some of the Famous UFO Sightings

The reports of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO) been sighted have been reported all across the world. People largely associate these sightings as proofs of extraterrestrial life on or near Earth in some other planet.

The sightings reporting dates back to as early as 1947 when a Washington businessman Kenneth Arnold saw saucer-like objects flying in a chain in the sky he called them "flying saucers". Another incident of this year was the most famous UFO event in U.S. history whereby UFO enthusiasts claim that they saw the U.S. military capture alien aircraft though military refuses with it and says that it was simply a surveillance device.

After this in 1949 astronomer Clyde W. Tombaugh who is famous for his discovery of Pluto reported that he saw eight rectangular lights in the sky above Las Cruces, New Mexico. This was followed by the abduction case in 1961 were Hill couple in New Hampshire claimed that they were taken by aliens and recounted their story in vivid detail. Another weird incident was reported at Texas in 1967 where several car engines supposedly shut down after an egg-shaped object reportedly flew over them and started again when the thing had crossed. The same year it was claimed that in Canada a UFO crashed into Shag Harbor in Nova Scotia an investigation was done but nothing was found so case still remains unsolved.

A year before in 1966 at Australia there was a mass sighting reported by two-hundred students and teachers who said that they saw a large aircraft land in a grassy field and take off over houses in Westall, Australia.

Some of the recent UFO sightings were in South Africa in 2000 where a police chief claims to have seen a UFO. Then in India, 2007 where several people at Kolkata said to have seen fast-moving flying objects that were triangular or spherical in shape and gave out bright light.
