Space Day, When is World UFO Day

About World UFO Day

When is World UFO Day? This holiday is always celebrated on July 2

Are we alone in the universe? Scientists estimate there are over 2 trillion galaxies out there in space. There are countless stars and planets. How could there not be other intelligent life forms? Speculation is only heightened by the irregular siting of Unidentified Flying Objects, or UFOs. The Roswell Incident and the secretive, off-limits Area 51 only heightens speculation. Today is World UFO Day. If this July 2 holiday seems alien to you, we certainly understand. It is a special day that comes to us, literally from out of this world.

World UFO Day supporters seek to get governments to fess up to the existence of UFOs. Many people believe that UFOs from outer space have already visited us, and a big, government cover-up is hiding the facts from the public.

The date for this special day is the date of the Roswell Incident, a historical event leading to wide speculation and belief that aliens have indeed visited us. In 1947, an object crashed at a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. This official explanation is it was a military crash. But to this day, millions of people believe it was actually an alien spacecraft. Many people believe the Alien remains are secretly held in Area 51 inside a secret Air Force facility in Nevada.

Organizers are downright serious about convincing the overall public to believe that we indeed have been visited by aliens from outer space. They are seeking to get the U.S. and other governments to admit to what they believe is a reality.

Have we been visited by extra-terrestrial beings? You make the call.

The Roswell Incident

July 2, 1947, is a date well known to UFO believers (Isn’t everyone!?). On this date, Mac Brazel, a rancher in northwest Roswell, New Mexico discovered the wreckage of a metallic object on his ranch. The wreckage and the metal it was made of were strange. He contacted military authorities who investigated the site and removed the wreckage. The first military reports referenced a mysterious, Unidentified Flying Object. These reports were later rescinded, leading to wide speculation and claims of a massive government cover-up of the discovery of UFOs from outer space. It also sparked fear of a UFO invasion and rumors of other incidents. That speculation is alive and well today.

The remains of the wreckage of the alien spacecraft are believed to be held at Area 51 on a secretive Air Force Base in Nevada.

You can go to International UFO and Research Center in Roswell, NM.  You will find a wealth of information about UFOs and what might be hidden from the public at Area 51. Will we ever learn the full truth about Area 51? Perhaps not. But, many people keep on trying.

History and Origin of World UFO Day

Throughout the 20th century, people became more interested in whether there were other intelligent life forms, or if we are all alone. So we know about the increasing speculation on this topic. However, we do not know who created World UFO Day, or exactly when it was first celebrated.  We suspect it evolved the speculation caused by the Roswell Incident.
