It used to be, if you started talking about aliens and UFOs, most people would write you off as a crackpot.

That's changed.

High-ranking military officials, and even a former President of the United States, Barack Obama, are acknowledging that there are things flying around in our skies that even our best scientific and military minds can't explain.



Fargo's most famous UFO sighting happened in the skies above a Bison football game As the NDAC (now NDSU) Bison took on the Augustana Vikings on a crisp fall evening in 1948, if fans looked up, they might have caught a glimpse of an even-more spectacular show in the nightime sky — a dogfight between a former WWII fighter pilot and an unidentified flying object that would go down as one of the most credible accounts of UFO activity in the country. What exactly happened and did any Bison football fans see it?
Deputy never claimed to know what he saw outside of Stephen, Minn. – but ufologists have called it one of the most significant UFO sightings ever

What's happening?

And why did it become ok, all of a sudden, to acknowledge this stuff?

Jay Thomas from WDAY AM970 joins this episode of Plain Talk to discuss.
