Excerpt from Jimmy Carter’s UFO Report

President Jimmy Carter reported seeing an unidentified flying object while at Leary, Georgia, in 1969.

While governor of Georgia, Carter was asked to file a report of the sighting by the International UFO Bureau in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, which he did in September 1973.

Describing the incident, he said, “There were about twenty of us standing outside of a little restaurant, I believe, a high school lunch room, and a kind of green light appeared in the western sky. This was right after sundown. It got brighter and brighter. And then it eventually disappeared. It didn’t have any solid substance to it, it was just a very peculiar-looking light. None of us could understand what it was.”

Ufologist Robert Sheaffer concluded that the object that Carter witnessed was a misidentification of Venus.
