    June 24, 1947.

    WWII was over and pilot Kenneth Arnold set the stage for a new battle front.

    What exactly did he see in the sky near Mt. Rainier on that clear June day so long ago? At any rate, Kenneth Arnold has been credited as the first user for the term "flying saucer".

    Happy UFO Day!

    Seems strange that Kenneth Arnold never said "flying saucers" and the objects he saw were crescent shaped. But thanks to bad reporting in the press the idea of saucers took hold.

    Too bad there's no video of this sighting. As UFO events go this first one sounds interesting, nine sizeable objects, in a loose formation, aparently moving at an extreme rate of speed.

    Now I have trouble judging size and speed but, being a pilot, Kenneth Arnold's perception at a distance may be more reliable. It sure gave his story more weight than the usual witless witness.
