June 1947 ... two years after WWII ended. People spoke of Foo Fighters and other unidentified flying objects in the sky. Crashes, coverups, reverse engineering would upgrade our history and storyline to figure out the nature of reality. To this day people speculate on the dissemination of information about aliens and our connections with them. I don't see that happening until aliens come forward, if ever.
In the same timeline as the infamous Roswell UFO Crash and Coverup we find the Kenneth Arnold UFO sighting which occurred 71 years ago today, when private pilot Kenneth Arnold claimed that he saw a string of nine, shiny unidentified flying objects flying past Mount Rainier at speeds that Arnold estimated at a minimum of 1,200 miles an hour (1,932 km/hr). This was the first post-War sighting in the United States that garnered nationwide news coverage and is credited with being the first of the modern era of UFO sightings, including numerous reported sightings over the next two to three weeks. Arnold's description of the objects also led to the press quickly coining the terms flying saucer and flying disc as popular descriptive terms for UFOs.

Father William Gill and 38 others allegedly witnessed a disc-shaped object with four legs hovering over the village of Boianai, Papua New Guinea. Four human-like figures were seen standing above the craft who returned the waves with the witnesses. The object remained intermittently visible for some hours, and returned the following two evenings. It was one of the best witnessed close encounter cases in the annals of ufology. At the time, Gill had assumed the objects to be new American aircraft. There had been a UFO flap on the island that year - 61 UFO sightings, mostly in June and July.
Papua New Guinea is in the Pacific Ring of Fire, at the point of collision of several tectonic plates. There are a number of active volcanoes. Earthquakes are relatively common, sometimes accompanied by a tsunami. 1998 Papua New Guinea earthquake and Tsunami
World UFO Day is an awareness day for people to gather together and watch the skies for unidentified flying objects. The day is celebrated by some on June 24, and others on July 2. June 24 is the date that aviator Kenneth Arnold reported what is generally considered to be the first widely reported unidentified flying object sighting in the United States, while July 2 commemorates the supposed UFO crash in the 1947 Roswell UFO Incident. The stated goal of the July 2 celebration is to raise awareness of "the undoubted existence of UFOs" and to encourage governments to declassify their files on UFO sightings.
