Reluctantly we must acknowledge Ken Arnold, the father of the modern UFO, who claimed he saw nine high speed flying saucers from the cockpit of his CallAir C-2 aircraft, while flying past Mount Rainier, Washington, on June 24th 1947.
De-bunkers of Arnold's story have debated ever since whether what Ken actually saw was just a very ordinary trick of the sky & weather.
However the original story developed real legs - fueling worldwide conspiracy theories and renewing interest in space travel as a way to avoid having to pick up ones socks and take out ones trash down here on Earth.
I sort wish Arnold had never been born - 60 years on, his vision is still powering the "cut and runners" of the denier class who use space travel as a way to avoid taking responsibility for having created harmful climate change.....
