2006 O’Hare International Airport UFO Sighting
Probably one of the most famous UFO sightings. On November 7th, 2006 12 airport employees and numerous other people witnessed a metallic saucer shaped UFO hovering over Gate C-17.
The UFO sat there for about two minutes. Observers reported the object shooting through the clouds at high velocity, leaving a clear blue hole in the cloud layer.
Both United Airlines and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) stated that the sighting was caused by “weather phenomenon” and didn’t investigate any further. The story was picked up by CNN, The Chicago Tribune, MSNBC and many more.
