In June, the U.S. government released a report on 144 reported UFO sightings. Officials were only able to verify what one of them was but didn’t say if the other 143 sightings were alien.
In the years since Roswell, Idaho has been a hotbed of UFO sightings, which doesn’t surprise Jim Mallard, who treats every day like World UFO Day.
His passion for UFOs started at a young age, saying it “started when I was five years old. I saw a UFO floating slowly over my house in San Diego and it was not balloon-shaped, it was saucer-shaped. It was flat.”
Mallard is the state director of Idaho for the Mutual UFO Network, or MUFON, a non-profit organization that claims to be the “world’s oldest and largest civilian UFO investigation & research organization.”
