A UFO, or unidentified flying object, is considered an unknown entity that is unclassified & unidentifiable. UFO sightings have had a profound impact on our culture & our curiosity, with the unknown spawning books, movies, video games & television shows.

World UFO Day is an awareness day for people to gather together & watch the skies for unidentified flying objects. July 2 commemorates the 1949 Roswell, New Mexico UFO incident.
