The World UFO Day Organization declared July 2nd to be the official World UFO day. This day is dedicated to the existence of Unidentified Flying Objects. There are several reasons why this day is important. One of the first and foremost reasons is to raise awareness about the existence of UFO's and intelligent beings from outer space.
Also this day is used to encourage governments to make public their knowledge about sightings throughout the history. Many governments are believed to have gained exclusive information about UFO's through their military departments.
A subject that still raises a lot of curiosity is the Roswell incident in 1947 when a believed UFO crashed in Roswell, New Mexico. An initial statement from the Air Force said a "flying saucer" had crashed. Later the service said the debris came from a weather balloon.
One UFO expert says the government has covered up the truth about Roswell and the existence of extraterrestrial visits in general.
It's cosmic Watergate," said Stanton Friedman, a nuclear physicist who has studied UFOs for more than 40 years. He added, "We're dealing with the biggest story of the millennium."
One explanation for why people latch onto thinking UFOs are real without solid evidence is the innate human need to seek meaning in life, said Stephen Diamond, a psychologist in Los Angeles, who has written about the psychological significance of UFO sightings.Part of the belief in UFOs is an attempt to transcend our sense of aloneness in the universe," Diamond said. "If UFOs are indeed real and if indeed they are piloted by sentient beings, then we're no longer alone in the universe, and that's attractive to some people."
