The UFO was born in 1947, when a pilot spotted nine objects that flew 'like a saucer would if you skipped it across the water'. Today almost half the population of the Western world believes that we are not alone. Fascinated by the topic since childhood, journalist and academic Clarke has spent decades investigating sightings reports, unearthing government files and interviewing witnesses. This book describes his strange journey to ferret out the truth at the heart of the UFO phenomenon.
