World UFO Day is a celebration of all things extraterrestrial and unexplained and organisers also to raise awareness of “the undoubted existence of UFOs” and encourage governments to declassify their files on UFO sightings.
It is held on July 2 because that is the date of the supposed UFO crash in the 1947 Roswell UFO incident – a key incident in the development of ‘Ufology’.
A statement on a website about the day says: “People are known for looking at the sky together during this day and doing other UFO-themed activities.
“For instance watching UFO movies together even meditate in groups on the subject.
“The most important thing is that people collectively open their minds to the subject for one day and send out the message mentally that UFO’s are welcome on this earth.”
To celebrate World UFO Day, here’s a rundown of the five best UFO sightings of the past year:
A UFO was spotted near the International Space Station in footage broadcast after astronauts evacuated part of the orbiting craft.
Alien spotters noticed a strange object disappear behind the ISS, reigniting bizarre claims that the space station is actually a place for aliens to come out hang out with humans.
Footage of the UFO was shown on the news channel CBS in January, sparking furious debate among online conspiracy nuts. It is not clear whether the film was stock footage, or taken from NASA’s live feed.
