A UFO is
short for Unidentified Flying Object. Tales of UFO's have been around the world for a long time.
Many sightings have been identified as natural events in the atmosphere by the latest advances in technology.
The term, 'Flying Saucer' was adopted in 1947 when several
saucer shaped objects were seen flying around Washington State. These were proven to be hoaxes
and man made objects. Until proven without shadow of doubt, UFO's remain only tales and
scientific unproven mysteries to many, some however believe that there is indeed beings (alians) from other worlds visiting us.
