Look skyward, invite an alien and celebrate World UFO

2012-07-02 00:00

CAST your eyes skyward today, when the world commemorates World UFO Day.

The day is dedicated to the existence of unidentified flying objects, according to www.worldufoday.­com, and was first celebrated in 2001.

The site says there are several reasons why this day is celebrated.

“One of the first and foremost reasons is to raise awareness about the undoubted existence of UFOs and, with that, intelligent beings from outer space.”

The day is also used to encourage governments to declassify their knowledge about UFO sightings.

“Many governments, the U.S. government for instance, are believed to have gained exclusive information about UFOs through their military departments. A subject that still raises a lot of curiosity is the Roswell incident in 1947, when a believed UFO crashed in Roswell, New Mexico.”

The site encourages believers to organise parties today, and look to the heavens. One could also do “UFO-themed activities”, like watching UFO movies together or meditating on the subject in small groups.

“… The whole point of World UFO day is to celebrate the existence of UFOs and extraterrestrial life.”

For those who need ideas, the site suggests:

• Wearing or creating your own UFO/alien T-shirts;

• Watching the sky together to spot strange objects flying around;

• Taking pictures of these strange objects;

• Sharing knowledge (books, videos and so on) with proof that UFOs exist; and

• Inviting extraterrestrials through meditation, thought or other ways of communication.

Local believers have been invited by Kitty Smith, friend of the late Elizabeth Klarer, who claimed she had borne a child by the alien Akon, to e-mail her at kitty@futurenet.­co.za with their thoughts and ideas about World UFO Day.
