Around the world, July 2 is celebrated as UFO Day (World UFO Day) or Ufologist Day. This holiday is dedicated to those who study phenomena that have no logical explanation, and objects that are attributed to extraterrestrial origin. The term "ufology" comes from the abbreviation UFO (Unidentified Flying Object), similar to the Russian UFO - "unidentified flying object".
The choice of date for the international holiday is due to the fact that, presumably at the end of June or at the beginning of July 1947, a strange object fell in the desert near the town of Roswell in the US state of New Mexico. Many are sure that a "flying saucer" with aliens crashed there.
Since the US intelligence agencies have classified all the materials of this case, it is now difficult to confirm or refute the hypothesis. However, the event received a wide public outcry, it was with the Roswell UFO Incident that the history of ufology began. And the earthlings were divided into two camps: those who believe in the existence of brothers in mind, and those who doubt it.
