There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of on World UFO Day

On 2nd July, most of the UFO-oriented world marks World UFO Day. For those who circle the day on their calendar, most will tie it to the search for extra-terrestrial life, many will throw a thought back to 2nd July 1947 and the crash of something at Roswell, New Mexico, in the U.S., and a few will point to the hideous governments obviously hiding something. I prefer to remember Roswelsh – the 23rd January 1974 Berwyn Mountain UFO Incident. If people paid more attention to Roswelsh than to Roswell, it would be all for the better, for indeed, there are more things in Heaven and Earth, than are dreamt of in our philosophies. That’s why we go exploring in the first place, and that’s why World UFO Day should be celebrated.

What was the Berwyn Mountain UFO Incident?

On the night of 23rd January 1974, reports came in from east of Snowdonia of strange lights in the sky, rumblings and the ground shaking. Eventually, some things were sorted out, but eventually a conspiracy theory grew around the event. What is commonly accepted is that there was an earthquake along the Bala fault that coincided with the appearance of bolides across northern Wales. The earthquake, at a magnitude 3.5, was felt as far away as the area near Liverpool.

Regarding the lights seen then, UFO researcher Andy Roberts dug into the matter as the story of the event had grown by the turn of the century. Along with reports of earthquake light, other beams of light are likely to have come from poachers in the area.

Something reported yet undreamt of

Earthquake light is a natural phenomenon that has been reported since the 9th Century CE. As with rogue waves, sprites, STEVE, and other natural phenomena, it’s existence has only been nailed down with the spread of video cameras since the turn of the millennium. We have imaging capabilities on Earth and in Space that give us the ability to detect the formerly reported and the completely unknown. On 27th June, NASA reported on the discovery of previously unknown formations within the ionosphere. This is the ionosphere which has been under observation for roughly a century. Clearly, there is much, much more to be discovered Earthside, as well as beyond.

A better World UFO Day

The way to make World UFO Day more popular, and perhaps more palatable to some, would be to make it a day of remembering that we don’t know everything about this planet, much less our planetary neighbours, and that we should celebrate identifying the yet undreamt of.
