UFOs Are they Real? According to Wikipedia.com an unidentified flying object (usually abbreviated to UFO or U.F.O.) is any unusual visible object or phenomenon in the sky whose cause cannot be identified by the observer, or (in a narrower definition) by investigators; though in popular usage it more loosely means alien spacecraft, being one explanation (among several) offered for such sightings. The mysterious U. F. O (Unidentified Flying Object) has been the centre of man's legendary pulp throughout ages. Archaeologists and historians even speak about the evidence and possibility of U.F.Os being existent in the ancient Stone Age world. Many people at different instances in recorded time have reported to being abducted by the aliens in their flying objects and. Others believe that aliens could be existent in our culture as the mighty gods which we worship today in form of super beings. Sceptics believe that these visitors from other planet could have actually visited the planet during the early stages of development of mankind thereby fooling us in believing things which we don't know about still yet.
Do these flying things actually exist? Well to answer this question one has to check the facts which we as civilians have in hand. The reason I am giving such a statement is because it is widely believed that the U.S. government has hidden some unknown secrets related to alien spaceships and even fossilized aliens bodies in their highly secure Sector 5 Area 51 unit. But the proof of such a belief has not been disclosed to the public yet.
The first U.F. O sighting has been reported in the year 1947. Kenneth Arnold, an American businessman on June 24, 1947 while flying his private plane near Mount Rainier, Washington reported seeing nine brilliantly bright objects flying across the face of Rainier, which was a news which sold like hot cakes, the media went gaga over it and the people's imagination were injected with a whole new set of stories 'the U.F.O stories'. Very soon after Kenneth Arnold U.F.O sighting a swarm of U.F.O sightings and alien abduction claims started popping up all around the United States of America. After couple of years this phenomenon spread to the entire globe and suddenly everyone seemed very much interested in aliens.
Now if an object garners the attention of the entire world, it is bound to be seen by the research angle. Governments and scientists from all over the world America, Brazil, Spain, Soviet Union, France, etc started investigating in this widely spreading belief amongst the people that aliens do visit our planet. Among the best known government studies are the ghost rockets investigation by the Swedish military (1946-1947), Project Blue Book, previously Project Sign and Project Grudge, conducted by the United States Air Force from 1947 until 1969, the secret U.S. Army/Air Force Project Twinkle investigation into green fireballs (1948-1951), the secret USAF Project Blue Book Special Report #14 by the Battelle Memorial Institute, and Brazilian Air Force Operation Saucer (1977). France has had on ongoing investigation (GEPAN/SEPRA/GEIPAN) within its space agency CNES since 1977. But the conclusions of these researches haven't been disclosed to the public, keeping them guessing and thus foster the proliferation of myths and twisted mixture of facts and fiction.
