In 1947, Kenneth Arnold, an experienced pilot in the USA, reported that he saw nine large round objects traveling at about 2,800 meters an hour to the left and north of Mount Rainier.83 In 1952, there were more than 1,500 UFO sightings around the world. In 1954, a woman and her children believed they saw a UFO above their house. The woman said she saw two aliens in the spacecraft. In 1964, a farmer claimed he saw an egg-shaped object in one of his fields and also aliens collecting soil samples. In 1971, two men claimed they were captured by aliens and taken aboard a spacecraft. After being examined by the aliens, the men were freed. In 1978, a young pilot and his plane disappeared after sighting a UFO. In 1981, Renato Nicolai, who was living in the south east of France, reported that he saw a plate-like device at a treetop 30 meters away from his garden.S SS S LS 0GGG LL LL GG LLGLL L SLSL LC CLLCCLaaaSS proof, supportfalling star, or shooting star unknown / strange people or things bringing together or gatheringcaught as a prisonerbecame impossible to seeb) Complete the notes.f UFO sightingsa) or can be e) A farmer saw in 1964.I mistaken for an alien f) In 1971, two men – spacecraft. -g).
