Today is being celebrated as a holiday called Flying Saucer Day. Celebrating UFOs in our culture and history. First I've heard of this but hey I dig it since I'm a UFO kook like the next dude. So let us celebrate this wonderfully weird holiday today on June 24th by back tracking through history and learning the facts about the history of UFOs. On June 24, 1947, an amateur pilot named Kenneth Arnold was flying a small plane near Mount Rainier in Washington state when he saw something extraordinarily strange. Directly to his left and about 20 to 25 miles north of him and at the same altitude he saw a chain of nine objects that shot across the sky whilst glinting in the sun as they traveled.
