1974 – Ronald Reagan

When a U.S. president claims to have seen a UFO, you’ve got to take that sighting pretty seriously. In 1974, Ronald Reagan was flying over Bakersfield in a small plane, and both he and  his pilot both saw a glowing white light that was several hundred yards away in midair. The glowing light began to change its shape, becoming longer, before speeding off and disappearing into the sky. Reagan never really discussed his possible UFO sighting while he was president (might have looked a little crazy to some voters), but he did mention aliens once in a speech he gave to the U.N. General Assembly in September 1987,  saying to the crowd, “I occasionally think, how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside the world.”
