Kenneth Arnold’s subsequent sightings made him change his views about flying saucers

by Phil Wright, EAST OREGONIAN – – June 25, 2017


Everybody knows about Kenneth Arnold‘s sighting that took place on June 24, 1947.

But few people know that Kenneth Arnold had subsequent UFO sightings and also investigated people who claimed that they had contact with aliens.

Arnold’s daughter Kim Arnold said her mother put her foot down and had her father stop because it cost too much money and took up too much time.

She said her father also believed he was supposed to talk about what he had seen and share it with other people, she said.

He decided to do speeches and sell a self-published booklet he called, “The Flying Saucer As I Saw It.”

“Government men”, she claims, immediately stopped the speeches.

She also said her father’s sighting on June 24, 1947 was the first of eight during his life.  While she has never seen one, she said people who have one sighting often end up seeing others.

“It just seems to kind of follow you,” she said.

A sighting he had with others from the ground in Idaho Falls also made news, and one of his sightings changed his perception of the objects.

He was flying over Susanville, California, when two saucers passed under his plane.

The first was “as solid as a Chevrolet car,” she said, but he saw pine trees through the center of the second.

She said her father compared that to jellyfish that appear solid one minute and transparent the next.

Her father concluded the saucers could change density.

“He never believed that the flying saucers were mechanical in any way at all,” she said, “but some kind of living organism.”

In his later years, she said her parents believed flying saucers were the connection between the living and the dead.

“It gave them hope of the reality of other dimensions,” Kim Arnold said, “and perhaps death was not the end but a new beginning that we live on into other worlds full of all kinds of activity”.
