On a summer afternoon in 1950, during a conversation about unidentified flying objects (UFOs), aliens, and faster-than-light travel with his colleagues, Italian-American physicist Enrico Fermi posed the question, "but where is everybody?" Later, in 1975, American astrophysicist Michael H. Hart published the first detailed explanation of the so-called "Fermi Paradox." The publication poses the following problem: If aliens exist, then the amount of time an extraterrestrial civilization has had to colonize the galaxy far exceeds the age of the Earth, and yet there's no evidence they've visited Earth at all.

Snopes, too, has investigated numerous UFO sightings and claims of supernatural phenomena. Continue below to check out a list of 10 UFO rumors that caught our attention.
