World Contact Day – March 15, 2025

We celebrate World Contact Day on March 15 every year. The day brings all alien life enthusiasts together to attempt to contact extraterrestrial beings. It is fascinating to see how many Unidentified Flying Objects (U.F.O.s) humans have reportedly found on Earth! People claim to see them every minute of the day! But, it is not just about flying objects. There are strange and interesting things such as crop circles, unusual signals, and fossils that show the possibility of life outside earth. So, whether E.T. managed to phone home or not, World Contact Day is a fun day to learn all about alien encounters.

History of World Contact Day

World Contact Day has been celebrated for the last 68 years on March 15. It was initiated by The International Flying Saucer Bureau (I.F.S.B.) in 1952 by Albert K. Bender. Later, the founder revealed a strange yet interesting story. Apparently, three men in black visited him at his house, and they communicated with him telepathically. He felt like he was being transported. Bender also reported having a second visit from three floating figures in shadows. They told him they had captured humans from earth to disguise themselves to have a human form on earth for their visits.

In the summer of 1953, Bender made a series of findings revealing the truth about U.F.O. stories, which he planned to publish in October of that year. Later in October, before publishing his discoveries, once again, he reported a visit by three men in black, who threatened him not to publish his findings of extraterrestrial life. In November 1953, he shut down the Bureau with a caution note to alien life enthusiasts.

On this day, in 1953, members of the Bureau were asked to send a peaceful telepathic note to aliens in outer space. The aliens asked for a friendly, peaceful, and mutual relationship with humans on earth and asked them to help ignorant people realize there is extraterrestrial life. In 2013, it was extended for a whole week, with a final attempt to have a massive connection on March 22. Even though the I.F.S.B. no longer exists, E.T. enthusiasts from all over the globe still celebrate World Contact Day.
