On this day in 1973, Jimmy Carter, then governor of Georgia, filled out a report saying that he had seen a U.F.O.

1973年的这一天,时任乔治亚州州长的吉米·卡特(Jimmy Carter)填写了一份报告,说自己看到了一架UFO。

It wasn’t such a strange statement at the time — a Gallup poll that year found that 51 percent of people interviewed believed in unidentified flying objects, and that 11 percent believed they had seen “a flying saucer” themselves.

这在当时不算是什么奇怪的说法——那一年的盖洛普(Gallup)民调显示,51%的受访者都相信存在不明飞行物,11%的受访者相信他们看见过一架“会飞的碟子”。

Mr. Carter filed his report with the unofficial National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena, and said he had seen the object in Leary, Ga., in 1969.

卡特向非官方的国家空中现象调查委员会提交了报告,并称他是于1969年,在乔治亚州的利里看到不明飞行物的。

Decades later, he recounted the incident on CNN: “I and about 25 others saw something in the air that changed colors and was round and came and left. We couldn’t figure out what it was.”

数十年后,他在CNN上重述了这一事件:“我和其他约25人看到空中的东西来了又走了。它能变化颜色,是圆形的。我们搞不清那是什么。”

But he added that he believed it was impossible “to have space people from other planets or other stars” come to Earth.

但他补充说,他相信不可能有“来自其他行星或星球的太空人”来地球。

While he didn’t believe they could visit us, Mr. Carter did record a message for “possible unknown civilizations in the galaxies” as president. It was part of the golden record placed in the Voyager in August 1977.

尽管他不相信他们会来探访我们,为了“银河系中可能的未知文明”,作为总统的卡特确实录下了一条信息。该信息是1977年8月被放置在“旅行者号”(Voyager)的金唱片的一部分。

He said it represented “our hope and our determination, our good will in the vast and awesome universe.”

他说那代表了“我们的希望和决心,我们在宏大又令人敬畏的宇宙中的善意。”
