On this day: World UFO Day

We hope that you're wearing your tinfoil hat to celebrate World UFO Day which is held each year on July 2nd, the approximate date that an alien spaceship crashed in Roswell, New Mexico. Although a spokesperson initially confirmed that a 'flying disc' had been recovered, an Air Force General swiftly changed the story to state that it was a weather balloon, giving conspiracy theorists fodder for endless debate for the following decades.
