This blog is word for word (almost) the same as the YouTube clip above. Listen and read along.

The third subject for January is UFOs. Do you believe in them? Plenty of people have seen them and are sure of what they have seen. Have a look at the UFO Word List and YouTube clip. The word list has 30 words from the article linked at the top, in the same order. Starting this month, the YouTube clip has me using an example sentence for each word, which is subtitled below. (but not on an iPhone, as Apple doesn't want to play).

Have a look at those, then continue reading the articles linked below with a better understanding of the vocab they may contain. How cool. To get Vocab Voyage straight to your Facebook page, pop over here.

First up, very cool song about seeing UFOs and not being believed.

First up - complete with a very convincing looking video - a sighting of a UFO at the annual London New Year's Fireworks display. This round, UFO looking thing starts low and kind of heads up in a UFO type fashion. They put it up on YouTube for the world to comment. The usual stories of Chinese lanterns came up, as well as the more modern drone explanation.
One guy did suggest that the aliens inside the UFOs like our fireworks so they came to watch.

Next, a UFO in Colorado that could only be seen through a camera, and not with the naked eye. A lady and her fiance were driving through the desert in Colorado and she was taking pictures. She noticed a UFO looking thing with her camera, but could see nothing without it. Again the shape looks suspiciously like a UFO. Do you believe, or not? Pop over to MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) to read about all sorts of sightings, theories and explanations.

Finally, the secretive folk at the Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.) have decided to fill us all in on the spate of UFO sightings in the 1950s and 1960s. They put them all down to their experiments with the U-2 spy plane. Something to do with the 60,000 feet altitude they were flying at. Flying that high enabled pilots of planes flying at 20,000 feet - as they did then - to see the sun reflecting of these spy planes. So it was all as simple as that.

But what about the recent London and Colorado sightings??? The truth is out there.
