The Path to Disclosure

Some experts maintain that UFO’s have been documented since biblical times, but it’s generally agreed that the modern UFO era began on June 24th, 1947, when a private aviator named Kenneth Arnold saw a formation of nine boomerang-shaped objects flying near Mt. Rainier moving at two to 3 times the speed of sound. A newspaper article about the incident coined the now-famous phrase: “flying saucers.” By the end of that year, an estimated 850 similar domestic sightings were reported.
