SciFi is airing this acclaimed special on the 56th anniversary, to the day, of the famed Kenneth Arnold sightings that ushered in the age of UFOs. On June 24, 1947, Boise businessman Arnold, while helping search near Mt. Rainier for a downed military aircraft, spotted nine silvery, crescent-shaped objects that looked "like saucers skipping over a pond." For the next two weeks, "flying saucers" — the newly coined term — made the front pages of newspapers nationwide.
