Talk about a hot topic. UFO’s have been the center of speculation and controversy for a very long time. Sightings have been reported since ancient times and new reports of them have never stopped. Unexplained lights and craft in the sky have interested, excited, and even terrified people.
Some instances of UFO sightings are much more well-known. One of those well-known cases are Roswell, New Mexico back in 1947 in which it was reported that a UFO had crashed and that alien bodies had been recovered. The story was quickly changed to report that it had been an errant weather balloon and nothing more, with adamant denials about the bodies. Regardless, the stories told by some of the people who were on the scene, some of whom are still alive, have not changed. Over the years, there have been numerous sightings of strange craft in the skies around Roswell. Some maintain that it is an alien hotspot, while others speculate that they are experimental craft being built and tested by the U.S government.
Others still believe that it is a combination of the two. They believe that the original report in 1947 of an alien craft crashing to earth was true, and that the United States military has been reverse engineering alien technology since that time. It is hard to say what the truth is, and maybe we will never know but I would like to think that we will.
There are UFO hotspots scattered throughout the world including the United Kingdom, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Australia, and North America. It is interesting that some places seem to see more activity of this nature than others, but the answer as to why remains as much a mystery as what the UFO’s are and who is driving them.
Our modern era is not the first to record sightings of strange things in the sky. Ancient carvings from thousands of years ago depict images which bear an uncanny resemblance to the sighting of today. Those ancient etchings make it more difficult to say that these craft are being built by the military, simply because aircraft are supposedly a fairly modern invention. This leaves two major possibilities. Either ancient society was being visited by beings from other planets or dimensions or they had technology which we have yet to find proof of…technology which is far advanced compared to our modern marvels.
If, in fact they had this technology it still raises questions. Why haven’t we found any relics? What happened to the knowledge of this technology? Who was behind it?
