"When I was back as a peanut farmer in southwest Georgia, I and about 25 others saw something in the air that changed colors and was round and came and left," former President Jimmy Carter said in an interview with CNN’s John Roberts on American Morning. "We couldn't figure out what it was."
Ufologist Robert Sheaffer concluded that the object that Carter witnessed was a misidentification of Venus  (Peebles 1994:205). This could also be Venus "Halo", as was discussed on the podacst Skeptics' Guide To The Universe #105, in an interview with Jimmy Carter. In this interview Carter again stated that although he was not convinced that the object had been explained, he did not believe it was an alien craft. Carter also said that he did not believe that any extraterrestrials have visited Earth.
"It was unidentified as far as we were concerned, but I think it's impossible in my opinion, some people disagree, to have space people from other planets or other stars to come to us — I don't think that's possible," he said.
But now Carter has told CNN that he does not at all believe the object he and about 25 other people saw — a round object that changed colors — was actually any sort of alien spaceship.
