When you look up at the sky, you might see objects flying across that you can’t explain. Any object that can’t be explained is called a UFO simply because it’s an unexplained flying object and not because it’s a craft associated with aliens or that is from another planet. The first time that “UFO” was used was in 1952. Military officials saw an object in the sky and weren’t sure what to call it or what it was, so officer Edward Ruppelt came up with the simple term to use. Objects seen in the sky beforehand were called flying saucers because of their shape. Kenneth Arnold was one of the first people to see flying saucers in 1947. He was in his plane when he saw nine crafts in the sky that weren’t any kind of airplane of helicopter that had been seen before. Some insurance companies offer policies to people who want to protect their belongings and themselves in the event of an alien abduction. There are about five sightings of UFOs reported each day, some that prove to be groundless while others are truly sightings of objects that can’t be explained away by planes or military aircraft. Some political figures, such as Jimmy Carter, have claimed to see UFOs as well.
