American UFO sighting, the first report to mark the birth of the UFO era of public awareness. Pilot Kenneth Arnold, an Idaho businessman in his private aircraft spotted nine strange objects soaring together near Mt. Rainier, Washington. They were estimated to be traveling at more than 1,200 mph. Arnold observed the saucer-shaped craft for several minutes before they disappeared.

A few months prior, people in Sweden reported strange objects in the sky. Historically, phenomena have been reported along with strange encounters with alien beings. However the Arnold Sighting was the springboard for the modern UFO culture.
