This week is another anniversary of when Georgia Governor and future president Jimmy Carter filed a report saying he saw an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO).
Carter filed his eye-witness account with the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) and International UFO Bureau, Inc. in 1973. The sighting took place in Leary, Georgia back in October of 1969 in the evening shortly after dark. The report says the object changed color and brightness.
This sighting came up during the 1976 presidential campaign and with the mess Nixon left behind any Democrat would’ve won, even one who claimed to have met Buck Rodgers. But as a candidate Carter did promise to open up government files on UFOs. However, once in office that campaign promise went unfulfilled with national security cited as the reason to withhold any information that the feds may or may not have on UFOs.
Here’s the link to Carter’s report. He lists his occupation as Governor.
