The answer to the question of whether UFOs are real is a resounding YES, UFOs are real. UFO stands for Unidentified Flying Object, which means that it’s something in the sky that has not been identified.

Are UFOs Real?

Are UFOs Real?

Have you ever seen a UFO? Do you believe in aliens? Or do you think that UFOs are just a bunch of hoaxes and hallucinations? UFOs are Real. You’ve probably seen a UFO or two, but did you know they’re real?

One thing is for sure—they’re not going away. The idea of unidentified flying objects and little green men has been around for centuries, and it’s not going anywhere. And for good reason: the universe is enormous, and we, as humans, have barely begun to explore all of it.

If you’re not sure, let’s talk about what UFOs are. UFOs are Unidentified Flying Objects—they’re basically anything that flies across the sky that you are not able to identify. That’s it! If you’ve ever seen anything in the sky that you couldn’t identify, then that is a UFO! The only problem is that most people don’t take UFOs seriously.


So if you’re curious about UFOs and why people still talk about them so much, keep on reading!

Why do most people don’t take UFOs seriously?

Why do most people don't take UFOs seriously?

UFOs are a controversial topic. Many people believe that the government knows more than they’re willing to admit about UFOs, but if you take a look at the history of the government’s policies and UFO-related trends, it’s hard to pin the blame on them.

In fact, there are many other factors at play when it comes to why most people don’t believe in UFOs. Let’s take a look at who we should really be blamed for this skepticism:

  • Hoaxers
  • People who share disinformation
  • Online communities and groups allowing fake UFOs
  • and news outlets

Just check out our debunks.

Hoaxers have been around since before the internet was invented. They’ve been tricking people into believing in all kinds of things, from Bigfoot to alien invasions. But sometimes their hoaxes aren’t even intentional—a lot of times they’re just trying to make some cash off of a bad photo or video they took. It’s important not to dismiss every UFO sighting as a hoax, though—keep an open mind when it comes to credible evidence!

People have been sharing disinformation (false information) about UFOs since long before social media existed. Nowadays, though, it’s easier than ever for these kinds of false rumors to spread because anyone can become a “journalist” online.

That doesn’t stop us here at Astral Citizens from sharing everything we know about them. We’re dedicated to finding and sharing any information we can about UFOs: where they come from, how they get here, and how we can study them. While most people think that UFOs aren’t real because they haven’t seen one before, our mission is to make sure that everyone knows that they’re out there.


UFOs in history

UFOs in history

In the 5th century BCE, the philosopher Anaxagoras wrote down his observations of what he called “clouds in the shape of a disk.” Later, in 1250 BCE, the Book of Ezekiel (one of the books in the Hebrew Bible) describes a vision that Ezekiel had with a flying vehicle that looked like gleaming metal and had “the face of a man” inside it. Later still, in 1492, Christopher Columbus saw a flaming torch floating off in the distance while on his voyage to the Americas—and later he described seeing strange lights in the sky.

There are plenty of modern accounts, too—but these older ones show us that we’ve been trying to make sense of UFOs for thousands of years!

As long as the human race has been around, there have been stories of people seeing things in the sky that couldn’t be explained.

3000 B.C.

3000 bc
The Russian-American author of The 12th Planet claims that Nibiru orbits the sun every 3,600 years, based on his research into Babylonian religious scriptures (like the one he’s holding).

The first known recorded interactions with extraterrestrials were in ancient Sumeria, around 3000 B.C., according to the work of Zecharia Sitchen, who assembled ancient clay tablets from the area and translated them into English over the span of many years.

In his book, The Twelfth Planet, Sitchen says that around 500,000 years ago, a race called the Anunnaki came to Earth and began mining gold for their home planet Nibiru, which is at the edge of our solar system. The Anunnaki genetically modified humans as a slave race to mine gold, and they ruled over humans until they left around 600 B.C., when they no longer needed humans as slaves.

Sitchen’s work was widely discredited by mainstream historians and archaeologists who accused him of fabricating his translations from Sumerian clay tablets. However, since then a number of other archaeologists have verified some parts of his translations. A few scholars have claimed that he may have invented some parts of his translations in order to fill in gaps where tablets were missing or difficult to translate.


Did you know that back in 1566, citizens of Basel, Switzerland had a mass UFO sighting?

That’s right! The entire city saw these glowing orbs in the sky and freaked out. One witness said they were “like burning barrels” while another said they were “balls of fire.” In all, there were three objects—and two were even able to land on the ground.



In 1639, a UFO appeared before several colonial American leaders in Boston, Massachusetts. It hovered over their heads for a few moments before disappearing into the night sky. This is documented in The History of New England from 1630 to 1649, Volume 1 (page 349).

In this year one James Everell, a sober, discreet man, and two others, saw a great light in the night at Muddy River. When it stood still, it flamed up, and was about three yards square; when it ran, it was contracted into the figure of a swine: it ran as swift as an arrow towards Charlton, and so up and down about two or three hours. They were come down in their lighter about a mile, and, when it was over, they found themselves carried quite back against the tide to the place they came from. Divers other credible person saw the same light, after, about the same 349 – 350


In 1719, British astronomer Edmond Halley (yes, Halley’s Comet) saw what he described as a “luminous cone” flying through the night sky over London with other witnesses who also claimed they saw strange lights on top of buildings across town around midnight time frame during one particular date range period time frame occurrence date-time hour day month year, etc..

The phenomenon of unidentified flying objects has been reported by humans for millennia and has also been depicted in hieroglyphs, art, and other forms of media throughout history. The sightings have often been explained away as natural phenomena.

1947’s Roswell UFO Incident

In July of 1947, something crashed outside Roswell, New Mexico. It was found by a rancher who called the local sheriff. They reported it to the Roswell Army Air Field and that’s when things got really interesting.

The original news headline said, “RAAF Captures Flying Saucer on Ranch in Roswell Region”.

They thought they had found an alien spaceship. The next day, they changed their minds… just like that. They said it was just a weather balloon.

The federal government has been denying this ever since and saying there was no cover-up of any kind. But why is no one talking about what actually happened?

6 reasons why UFOs are real

6 reasons why UFOs are real

UFOs are real, people. It’s time to accept the truth.

Here are six reasons why:

  1. The government spends millions every year researching UFOs, including unexplained phenomena reports and sightings of all kinds. Even when they don’t know what it is, they still study it, because it’s “unidentified.” So if you have any doubt that UFOs aren’t real, ask yourself why the government would waste so much money on something that doesn’t exist. This isn’t a crazy conspiracy theory—it’s an objective fact.
  2. And while we’re at it: The government also spends a lot of time writing down details about UFO sightings. You can read their reports right here on [source]. Check out their website for some amazing details.
  3. The military has reported seeing UFOs. Why would they lie about something like this? You can read all about one such sighting here:
  4. Commercial pilots report seeing UFOs all the time (not just military pilots). They’re trained professionals whose job it is to see things in the sky, so if someone who flies planes for a living believes they’ve seen something unusual and inexplicable in the sky, we should probably believe them too, right?
  5. Roswell happened; Why would you send the entire military unit to pick up a weather balloon? Are you serious?
  6. Hypnotherapy; In UFO hypnotherapy sessions, a trained hypnotist guides clients into a trance-like state where they feel calm and relaxed. Then, the hypnotist helps them to remember details about past encounters with UFOs that may have been forgotten or never fully acknowledged by their conscious mind. In this “unblocked” state, individuals can easily remember details that could otherwise elude them if they were trying to recall their experiences while fully awake and alert.

Pentagon UFO videos

The Pentagon released three videos of unidentified flying objects or UFOs.

The videos, which were taken between 2004 and 2015 and were first published by the New York Times in 2017, are labeled “FLIR,” “GIMBAL,” and “GOFAST.”

In the “FLIR” video, a person aboard the aircraft can be heard saying, “Wow, what is that man? Look at that flying!” A second person replies, “Wow!”

The footage was captured by a US Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet off the coast of San Diego on November 14, 2004.

The “GIMBAL” video shows an object shaped like a white Tic Tac moving against the wind at a speed of 120 knots (138 mph). It was captured on January 21 2015 when two Navy F/A-18F fighter jets intercepted an unknown object near California using the Raytheon AN/ASQ-228 Advanced Targeting Forward-Looking Infrared (ATFLIR) Pod system.

The pilots can be heard discussing how strange the object is. One pilot says it’s rotating, to which another reply: “I don’t know what it is, man.”


Roswell UFO Incident

Roswell UFO Incident

When aliens crash land in Roswell, New Mexico, they’re often in for a surprise.

The residents of Roswell are used to it—their town is famous as the site of a reported UFO crash in 1947. The so-called Roswell UFO Incident is still shrouded in mystery, and even after decades of investigation, some details remain elusive. Here’s what we know so far:

On June 14, 1947, one of the most famous UFO sightings ever took place. A rancher named W.W. Mac Brazel found strange debris spread across his ranch near Corona, New Mexico. It was unlike anything he’d ever seen before—he described it as “tinfoil, paper, tape and sticks.” He took some of the debris to Roswell Army Airfield (RAAF), where the military picked up on his story and started an investigation.

On July 7th, the military announced that they had recovered a flying saucer from a ranch near Corona. They retracted the statement just hours later, but not before the story had spread throughout newspapers around the country. A press release said that what they had actually found was a weather balloon—but what really happened?

Many people believe the incident was covered up by military personnel, who instead reported that it was a weather balloon crash site. Decades later, many still question what happened at Roswell, and why the Air Force seemed so intent on covering it up.

According to a surfaced letter they recovered alien bodies.


Alien Abductions

Alien abduction is a phenomenon that has been reported by people in many different countries. These individuals claim to have been taken into spaceships and experimented on, or to have seen aliens while they were unconscious.

Some people believe these reports to be true, while others think they are hallucinations. While it’s impossible to prove, either way, some abduction reports are based on very similar stories—stories that may seem too coincidental not to be true.

If this has happened to you, you might be feeling pretty lost right now. What do you do? Who do you talk to? Are these people ever coming back?

The good news is that there are resources available to help people who have been abducted by aliens. If possible, try to find a therapist who specializes in working with abductees—they will be able to help you navigate your situation with compassion and expertise.

Another option is hypnotherapy: trained professionals can hypnotize abductees into returning to the scene of their abduction and helping them work through it as well as any trauma they may have experienced as part of what happened to them. Hypnotherapists can also help abductees remember.

If you’ve been abducted by aliens, chances are you’ve repressed the experience. During hypnotherapy, the therapist helps you go into a deeply relaxed state and access memories that may have been repressed. This can be an extremely healing process for those who have suffered through alien abduction.


Conclusion on Are UFOs Real?

We’ve discussed a lot of different questions in this blog, and it’s time, to sum up our thoughts.

Are UFOs real? Yes, UFOs are real. Do people sometimes see things that they can’t identify? Absolutely. But that doesn’t mean that extraterrestrial beings have traveled across the universe to visit Earth.

More importantly, we need to stop supporting videos that show fake UFOs to attract more views or clicks. These videos do serious damage to “ufology” by making us seem unreliable and untrustworthy.

What if you were an alien? What would that be like? What would you do with humans? We want to know what you think! Comment below!
