International UFO Research Day
|PRESS RELEASE and INVITATION
On June 24, 2001, International UFO Research Day will be held with the support of dozens of organizations from different countries.
The purpose of this event is to offer proper recognition to the efforts made by researchers in the evolution of Ufology as a serious and disciplined field of study. Many of these researchers, who largely remain anonymous, have devoted a considerable part of their lives and resources in sacrifice to the search for the truth about extraterrestrial life in our universe. Some of them have placed their reputations, their lives and their livelihoods in jeopardy. This is the day on which we choose to honor them. June 24th was chosen as the date for this celebration due to the U.S. civilian aviator Kenneth Arnold's life-changing experience on that day in 1947--an event which led him to describe the formation of objects he saw as "flying saucers", a term which acquired currency all over the world.
To this end, on the evening of June 23rd, beginning at 10:00 p.m. and running to 2:00 a.m. in the morning of June 24th, we shall celebrate a major UFO Alert jointly with Argentina's Project Condor. Thousands of people all over the planet will raise their eyes skyward in a common search for any unusual aerial phenomena as a sign of their support for this event.
All interested parties are invited to join this major event.
The following lists the participating organizations to date:
