    (March 29, 1915-January 16, 1984)
    Born in Sebeka, Minnesota
    Made the first publicized UFO sighting in the United States (June 1947)
    Claimed to have seen several disc like objects flying near Mount Rainier, Washington while piloting his own plane
    Because of his description of the crafts he saw as 'discs or saucers' we got the now ubiquitous term 'flying saucer.'
    His story changed over the years, with his description of the crafts switching from 'disc' shaped to 'crescent' shaped.
    In the 1950's he reported that he witnessed the same type of craft again, and eventually claimed to have seen them 8 different times.
    His story has been at the center of many UFO related debates for over 60 years.
    It is possible that the Roswell incident (which happened a little over a week after Arnold's sighting) was blown out of proportion by the press due to his story being popular at the time.
    He did not enjoy the publicity that his UFO encounter brought into his private life.
    He eventually got tired of the 'UFO scene' and quit doing interviews about his sightings.
    He tried out for the US Olympic Diving Team as a young man.
    The Air Force claimed that it was likely a high altitude mirage that Arnold saw.
