On June 24th we join hands with the all the world in the
celebration of "International UFO Research Day."

This date was selected because most books point out this day as
the start or beginning of a global public interest for the UFO
phenomenon as a result of the experience of a lonely pilot
called Kenneth Arnold who witness a squadron of unidentified
flying objects over Mount Ranier. From his sighting the
descriptive term "FLYING SAUCER" was born. The image drawn by
artist James Neff depicted on this page dramatizes the encounter
Arnold experienced that day.

Inmediately after Arnold's encounter the civilian population
remained in a state of alert watching the skies. Numerous UFO
sightings were reported; more than 100 in just two weeks. The
term "flying saucer" travelled around the world in an instant.
 From the many cases reported in those first two weeks came the
famous and controversial Roswell Crash in July 2nd.

Kenneth Arnold had his 15 minutes of world fame but at a cost.
Skeptics quickly stepped over Arnold's credibility, sanity, and
reputation. His encounter with something unknown baptized him as
the first UFO witness to be ridiculed by the american press. It
has been said that Arnold regret making his experience public
but he always kept a firm stand over his testimony.

Today we make a call for the whole world to join together for a
few moments to scan the skies and consider seriously that in
that infinite universe of stars, planets, and galaxies there can
be other thinking beings that may be visiting Earth.
