【最初のUFO目撃証言から60年―KENNETH ARNOLDの場合】

「空飛ぶ円盤」という表現で、世界で初めてオフィシャルにUFOの目撃を証言したケネス・アーノルド氏の目撃談が新聞に掲載されたのが1947年の6月26日。今からちょうど60年前のことになる。

そういえば、あのロズウェル事件もこの年に起きた。

すでに60年も経っているのに、UFOは未だに謎のままだ。

そういう意味で、この1947年という年は、近代のUFOLOGYの起点となる記念すべき年という訳。

1947-The Kenneth Arnold Sighting (ALL ABOUT)

Summary: There have been UFO sightings ever since man roamed the Earth. There exist many paintings of centuries past that depict unusual flying objects in the sky. Folklore of many early peoples are filled with stories of strange objects flying through the skies. However, most Ufologists credit pilot Kenneth Arnold's UFO sighting of 1947 as the beginning of the modern UFO age.

Boise Flyer Maintains He Saw 'Em 
Kenneth Arnold Sticks To Story of Seeing Nine Mysterious Objects Flying At Speed Of 1200 Miles An Hour Over Mountains 

By BILL BEQUETTE

Kenneth Arnold, a six-foot, 200-pound flying Boise, Ida., business man, was about the only person today who believed he saw nine mysterious objects -- as big as four-engined airplanes -- whizzing over western Washington at 1200 miles an hour. 

      Army and civilian air experts either expressed polite incredulity or scoffed openly at Mr. Arnold's story, but the 32-year-old one time Minot, N.D. football star, clung to his story of shiny, flat objects racing over the Cascade mountains with a peculiar weaving motion "like the tail of a Chinese kite." 

      A CAA inspector in Portland, quoted by the Associated Press, said: "I rather doubt that anything would be traveling that fast."
