UFOs: Fact or Fiction?For centuries man has wondered on his position in the universe. Is he alone? Is he the divine creature? Has he descended from an ape, or a godly being? The idea of extraterrestrial life existing and visiting our planet has held us captivated. I have gathered many sources and have come to the conclusion that UFOs do exist. I am here today to persuade you that the idea of alien visitors should be accepted and not denounced due to an overwhelming amount of evidence such as sightings, crop circles and encounters.
At least 90% of UFO sightings can be identified as conventional objects, although time-consuming investigations are necessary for such identification. The objects most often mistaken for UFOs are bright planets and stars, peculiar clouds, birds, aircraft, balloons, kites, aerial flares, meteors and satellites. Between 1647 to 1969 at total of 12,618 reports have been received concerning unidentified flying objects, of which 701 of the reports, or 5.6 percent, were listed as unexplained. .
There are three types of sightings. First comes the Close Encounter of the First Kind. In this setting, a UFO is seen at close range, but does not interact with its environment. This type is the most common. Next are the Close Encounters of the Second Kind. The UFO interacts with its environment, animals frightened, humans may have minor burns or clouded thinking, engines stall, headlights dim, or home appliances stop working. The last type is the Close Encounter of the Third Kind. In this last type, aliens may be seen in or near a UFO, abductions may occur. .
On July 13, 1969 in Iowa at the Barr family beanfield, a large rotating, orange, glowing, oval-shaped object with a double row of lights across the middle hovered, then set down for a few moments. After it took off, the ground was depressed and burnt. Incidents like this are not so incredibly rare as one might suspect to see in the west.
