In a recent Novinite.com story, a conference on the subject of extraterrestrial intelligence and UFOs was held at the Bulgarian Academy of Science Space Studies Institute (BAS).
As announced by Professor Lachezar Filipov, BAS plans to form a working group to look into the phenomenon. The working group and the conference were reportedly inspired from a UFO sighting in October 2014 above Sofia’s Kremikovtsi district. The reporting witness of the UFO event is identified as a serious man and seems to be the only one to have seen the object.
Bulgaria has become a place of UFO sightings in recent years. One major incident involved a UFO in the night sky above Haskovo, Bulgaria. Ben Hensen, a former FBI agent and who has worked in Syfy Channel’s Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files as lead investigator, suggests that the video footage showing UFO activity over Haskovo was not edited.
Unidentified flying objects (UFOs) have been part of many cultures. Ever since the Second World War, connection of UFOs and alien spacecraft has become famous.
The theory of space alien visiting planet Earth or humanity has been the subject of both science fiction and scientific speculation for many decades now. The idea of UFOs being extraterrestrials has inspired paranormal television shows, such as “The X-Files” and sci-fi movies, such as “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.”
Urban legend suggests that the government knows about visitors from other planets, but for whatever reason, the alleged fact is hidden to the public.
The entire mythology has become familiar with the idea that UFOs are evidence of the existence of aliens, particularly those extraterrestrial beings interested in something here on Earth.
The most popular and probably the most widely documented event involving UFOs is the Roswell, New Mexico UFO crash in 1947. The story alleges that there were dead alien crew recovered together with the debris of an unknown flying saucer and that the government has been studying alien corpses and the craft at Area 51.
Alien abduction has also been one aspect of the UFO mythos. This involves aliens abducting human beings for experimentation before releasing them back to their respective places.
The alien abduction case of the couple Barney and Betty Hill is the first documented accounts of the subject. The incident reportedly took place in 1961. These statements are believed to be the result of the fake story or implanted memories from an unrelated psychological trauma.
U.S. Air Force formed Project Blue Book to give scientific explanations for UFO sightings. The project concluded that many UFO sighting reports can be explained by space satellites, aircraft, or some natural phenomenon.
While many of UFO sightings are proven to be hoaxes, there are few of them that remain unexplained, which strengthen the belief of UFO enthusiasts about alien spacecraft observing planet Earth. Meanwhile, skeptics would say that the small number of unexplained sightings could also be explained, but there haven’t yet sufficient data available to fully explain them.
Official UFO studies stopped in 1969 with the conclusion that UFOs would have no scientific value, and they are not threats to national security. However, the debate whether any of the UFOs represent alien visitors is still ongoing as a number of private groups still investigating the phenomenon.
Many scientists have concluded that intelligent extraterrestrials exist somewhere in the universe other than Earth. The discovery of Earth-like planets raises hopes that aliens could exist elsewhere.
