We don't call it Big Sky Country for nothing. If you get high enough on a mountain top, it almost feels like you can see the curvature of the earth. Which makes Montana a great place to search for UFOs. In fact, Montana is one of the top states for UFO sightings. So much so that we are home to footage of UFOs that appeared a few years after the incident in Roswell New Mexico.

According to the book Montana UFOs and Extraterrestrials

In 1950, two spinning disks flew over Great Falls, Montana, and were filmed on a hand-held camera.  In separate incidents while a UFO was overhead, armed and ready nuclear missiles were suddenly deactivated as missile launch officers watched helplessly. The U.S. Air Force ordered these men never to tell anyone what happened.

Since that day in 1950, people all over Montana have had UFO sightings. Including another person from Great Falls. I'm talking about Montana's own Reggie Watts.

You may know Reggie Watts as the wild-haired band leader for the Late Late Show with James Corden. You may have also seen Reggie in various comedy shows like IFC's "Comedy! Bang! Bang!." But, we know him as a fellow Montanan, raised on the outskirts of Malmstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls. Reggie was born in Germany, to a military family. His family moved to Great Falls shortly after he was born and Reggie recalls being made a US Citizen when he was 4 years old. He grew up in Great Falls and left to attend the Art Institute of Seattle when he was 18 years old. His career soon grew into becoming the band leader of the Late Late Show with James Corden.

Reggie was recently on the biggest podcast in the world, The Joe Rogan Experience, discussing his new book "Great Falls, Montana."

During his interview with Joe Rogan, they stumbled on the topic of UFOs. Reggie decided to share with Joe the story of his first time witnessing a UFO in person. He shares in detail how his sighting happened while on a camping trip in Montana.
