Jimmy Carter UFO Sighting
Future U.S. President Jimmy Carter filed a report with the International UFO Bureau on September 13, 1973. The report recounts an event where Carter and a group of ten other witnesses saw a UFO in October 1969. The event shaped Carter's views on the topic and led to his campaigning on the release of all federal documents related to UFO activity. Carter later walked back this campaign pledge in the name of national defense.
