UFO Awareness Day

World UFO Day, a day devoted to unexplained flying objects, is observed annually on July 2. Essentially, it serves as a day of awareness for people all around the world to come together and search the skies for UFOs.




On 2nd July 1947, a United States Army Air Forces balloon crashed near Roswell, New Mexico. People took great interest in the crashed ‘flying disc’ however, the US military stated that it was merely a conventional weather balloon. In the 1990s the true nature of the ‘flying disc’ was revealed. And the Roswell UFO incident was considered to be the most famous UFO incident. Here is a list of some other UFO sightings.

  • The Lights above New Jersey Turnpike (2001)
    On 14th July 2001, a group of motorists stopped alongside a highway and noticed strange yellow-orange lights in V formation. The sight continued for around 15 minutes. At first it was not paid much attention but later the New York Strange Phenomenon Investigators (NY-SPI) claimed to receive FAA radar data that corroborated the UFO sightings.

  • The sightings at Stephenville (2008)
    The residents of the small town of Stephenville, Texas noticed something interesting in the sky on 8 January 2008. They saw a horizontal arc of white lights that gradually bent in vertical parallel lights. The unidentified flying object was claimed to be flying at a speed of 3000 miles per hour but did not produce any sound.

  • East Coast GO FAST video (2015)
    The news of this sighting leaked 2 years later in 2017. A video emerged, revealing an encounter between an F/A-18 Super Hornet and an Unidentified Flying Object. The craft was very fast moving, white oval, about 45-feet long without wings or exhaust plumes. The pilots tracked the object at 25,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. No explanation emerged about this sighting ever after. 

So, on 2nd July every year, people celebrate UFO day, to spread awareness about flying saucers. All you have to do is look at the sky from time to time, and who knows, the next UFO might be noticed by you.
