Pop quiz: what's green and mushy on the inside, crusty on the outside, and travels in a circular dish? If you said aliens, you are correct! Some people look to the heavens hoping to find their "pie in the sky." Others expect flying saucers. Either way, trying to figure out the secret of what's out there is an all-American pastime (see cover story).

Does the government know more about UFOs than they are telling us? Possibly. I think the government has a lot of secrets.
Why are most people claiming UFO abduction middle class and white? Maybe we want attention, because we are not recognized as a minority.

What does the government know about UFOs that they aren't telling us? If something has been found or something has crashed, I think they know.
