Since the dawn of man, UFO sightings have been reported. These sightings were recorded with cave drawings that date back to 8000 B.C.E. as well as the first actual documented cases starting back in the 1600s.
When the first sighting occurred will forever remain a mystery. For all we know, the first man ever created or evolved, depending on your theory of choice, sighted the first UFO. What was the mysterious UFO he sighted back in 310,000,000 B.C.? In all honesty, it was probably an insect or bird. After all, UFO stands for unidentified flying object. The first man wouldn't have been able to identify the winged creature at first glance. However, usually we're not thinking about an insect or bird when discussing UFO sightings.
UFO sightings today are practically synonymous with aliens. Hundreds of thousands of reports and eye witnesses have come forward claiming to see UFOs of space origins. These people are often greeted by the general public with mass amounts of skepticism and distrust. The average American's idea of a UFO sighting witness is someone that belongs in a mental institution. However, since the sixteen hundreds some of the brightest and most influential people in history have laid claims to seeing UFOs on the horizon.
One of these documented cases comes to us by way of Johannes Kepler. Kepler was one of the key figures in the scientific revolution of the 1700s. He was one of the leading mathematicians and astronomers for his time. On the 17th of November in 1623, Kepler sighted a UFO as the sun set for the evening.
Since Kepler's discovery, some of the brightest scientific minds have reported seeing unexplainable flying objects in the sky. This list includes people such as Frederick William Herschel, Seymour L. Hess, and Charles Moore just to name a few. Some of the people many claim to be the most intellectually gifted humans to walk the Earth are known for believing that UFOs are of extraterrestrial origins. Einstein is even quoted as believing we are not alone in the universe. So is it really fair to disallow the possibility that these UFO sightings are alien in nature?
On the other side, there are many governmental and military personnel claiming that the sightings people are experiencing are simple technological advancements being tested in secrecy. Simply viewing technological advancements over the last ten to twenty years can back up these claims, which are probably why many choose to believe the military's explanation rather than the possibility of alien space craft.
Regardless of what people believe they have seen in the past, UFO sightings are still practically regular occurrences. Thanks to the advancement of technology, more and more of UFO sightings are being captured on credible recording devices which are being authenticated by specialists of a variety of fields. UFO sightings caught on video have even begun being reported on mainstream media outlets across the globe. Whatever your beliefs may be, it seems only a matter of time before irrefutable evidence of unidentified flying objects is caught. Will you be ready?
