“I was outside a school lunch room one night right before sundown. It was getting dark and we were getting ready to eat supper.

“It got closer and closer and right above the pine trees it stopped and then it began to change colors from blue, to red, to white. Then it stayed there for a while. We were all aghast. We didn’t know what it was. And then it just disappeared into the west. That was the end of it.” space science space science to know universe science

“Carter made a request through his science advisor Frank Press in 1977 asking NASA to look into UFOs, Even though the request came from the highest office in the land, NASA declined,” said Kean. space science space science to know universe science
