History behind the term 'Ufo'


The Roswell Incident

In 1947, an unidentified flying object (UFO) gained widespread attention when an alleged crash occurred near Roswell, New Mexico. The U.S. military initially stated that it was a weather balloon, but speculation about extraterrestrial origins sparked public interest in UFOs.


The Washington D.C. Sightings

One of the most significant UFO sightings occurred in 1952 over Washington D.C. Multiple unidentified objects were detected on radar and observed by both military and civilian pilots. The sighting lasted several hours, creating a media frenzy and further fueling public curiosity about UFOs.


The Robertson Panel

In response to the growing number of UFO reports, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) convened a panel of scientists known as the Robertson Panel. The panel concluded that the majority of UFO sightings could be explained by conventional causes, such as misidentifications of natural phenomena or man-made objects.


Project Blue Book

The U.S. Air Force established Project Blue Book in 1952 to investigate UFO reports. In 1966, the University of Colorado conducted a scientific study on behalf of the Air Force to evaluate the data collected by Project Blue Book. The study, known as the Condon Committee Report, concluded that there was no scientific evidence indicating the existence of extraterrestrial spacecraft.


Betty and Barney Hill Abduction

One of the most famous alleged UFO abduction cases occurred in 1961 when Betty and Barney Hill claimed they were abducted by extraterrestrial beings. Their story gained significant media attention and sparked widespread interest in UFO abductions and close encounters.


The Phoenix Lights Incident

In 1997, thousands of people witnessed a series of unidentified lights in the night sky over Phoenix, Arizona. The incident remains one of the most well-documented and widely witnessed UFO events in history. Despite official explanations suggesting flares and military exercises, many believe the lights were of extraterrestrial origin.


The New York Times UFO Report

In 2017, The New York Times published an article revealing the existence of a secret Pentagon program called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). The program investigated reports of UFO sightings and encounters, indicating ongoing government interest in the phenomenon.


The U.S. Government's UFO Task Force

In 2020, the U.S. Department of Defense established the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force to investigate sightings of unexplained aerial objects encountered by military personnel. This task force aims to gather and analyze data to determine if these sightings pose any threat to national security.
