It is well known that Jimmy Carter saw a UFO in 1969 while gathering with about 25 people waiting to attend a Lions Club meeting.
The formless, glowing thing emitted various colors before flying off.
During a recent interview to promote his new book, he made these comments on a New York radio program, The Brian Lehrer Show: “I don’t claim that it came from outer space. But it was unidentified, it was flying, and it was an object … It was a flying object that was unidentified. But I have never thought that it was from outer space.”
Translation: It was likely of earthy origin, either some sort of natural phenomenon or otherwise.
