Reagan's belief in UFOs

Early in his political career, before he became a candidate for governor, Reagan was touring the Central Valley farm country of California. With him were a campaign aide, a friend and a reporter. It was late at night; everyone was tired. The conversation turned to the countryside and finally to the stars. Someone mentioned flying saucers. Reagan said that he thought UFOs existed. So did his friend. Reagan said he had an acquaintance, a Navy Reserve pilot, who had seen UFOs while on a flight through the Midwest.
