    "UFO Documentary: Amazing UFO Sightings From Around The World, is a documentary of UFO sightings. Its a lengthy video with heaps of info, even for a skeptic like myself. Best part is i found out i happen to live in a hotspot, go figure. Sadly i have yet to see a UFO. The video was fun, if its real or not you are at least learning something. The video has lots of great characters giving their accounts of the UFO and many Conspiracy. I say give it a watch if you have free time or are at the pc and you dont enjoy silence. "

    "James Fox really knows what he is doing with these documentaries man! One of the best UFO documentaries on youtube, period, not just about UFOs. I wish more people copy his way of using credible resources for documentaries than the usual swill of docus that just show old footage and endless whining from a faceless narrator."

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that even great historical figures reported sightings of an "unidentified flying object" or UFOs? While some of the best UFO documentaries discuss modern cases of UFO sightings, some sightings by historical persons are relatively ignored. Among the most notable is Christopher Columbus' experience in his 1492 voyage, which is regarded as one of the first UFO sightings in history. The explorer noted in his journal that he saw a light in the sky and followed its direction, leading to their landing on Guanahani island. Columbus described the light as a "small wax candle that rose and lifted up". Many believed it was a flying ship that was also looking for land. Almost two centuries later, Massachusetts colony governor John Winthrop wrote in his journal that he heard three men claim of a "mysterious light" that "ran as swift as an arrow" in an area near Charlestown. The governor described one of the claimants as "sober, discreet man" and also noted that "diverse other credible persons saw the same light, after, about the same place". In 1644, five years after the first sighting, Winthrop wrote an entry about a different group of men who saw luminous objects that transformed into man-like figures upon reaching the town of Boston, before vanishing away. 

While many of the reported sightings in history turn out to be hoaxes or just heavenly bodies passing through, these announcements can have disastrous effects on the public. In 1938, an Orson Welles radio show about UFOs and even aliens landing in America to declare war upon the world caused panic. It was reported that the show was so realistic because it had fake announcements from the military of different nations. The public was so terrified that they fled New York or did not go out at night. But to be fair, that was before alien documentaries or alien movies like Mars Attacks!, so the public can be forgiven if they thought it was real.

    "Where's the abduction of a pregnant woman? She claimed that she was abducted and that the aliens took her baby from the womb. The pregnancy was not faked since there was an ultrasound pic (is that what you call it) but after the abduction she and her husband went to the hospital to check on their baby but the doctor said that there was no trace that she was pregnant. Still gives me goosebumps. I saw it on Ancient Aliens."

    "There's a lot of fascinating content here, somewhere muddled beneath some of the worst sound editing I have ever heard. While I could definitely come up with some theories to why the editing is so bad I am going to chalk it up to someone needing better equipment. Still otherwise well made and properly cited but not the best ufo documentaries out there."
