The modern UFO age began in June 1947, when pilot Kenneth Arnold reported seeing unusual flying objects near Mt Rainier in Washington. He described them as saucer shaped and as skipping "like saucers" across a lake. Arnold's actual statements varied slightly over time, but the early reports got into the newspapers and fired the imaginations of readers and writers alike, so that very quickly people all over the USA were talking about "flying saucers".
And then over the northern summer of 1947, there were hundreds of "flying saucer" sightings all across the USA, whereas the year before there had been none. They occurred in every state of the USA. But somehow they stopped at the borders - there were a couple in Canada very close to the US border (where people might have seen US newspapers) and none in Mexico, where US newspapers wouldn't have been circulated.
