Interesting fact about 39th US President Jimmy Carter!

An American politician, James Earl “Jimmy” Carter, Jr. (born October 1, 1924) served as the 39th President of the United States (1977–1981). The only U.S. President to have received the Prize after leaving office, he was the recipient of the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize. Carter served as a U.S. Naval officer, was a peanut farmer, served two terms as a Georgia State Senator and one as Governor of Georgia (1971–1975) before he became US President.

The 39th President, Jimmy Carter, was the first US President to personally confess a UFO sighting. He claims to have seen a large bright object that changed colors and was about the size of the moon in the sky.

His boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow in response to the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan was one of Carter’s most bitterly controversial decisions. This marks the only time since the founding of the modern Olympics in 1896 that the United States has ever failed to participate in a summer or Winter Olympics. The Soviet Union retaliated by boycotting the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles and did not withdraw troops from Afghanistan until 1989 (eight years after Carter left office).

Carter and his wife Rosalynn founded the Carter Center in 1982, a nongovernmental, not-for-profit organization that works to advance human rights after leaving office. Carter intends to be buried in front of his home in Plains, Georgia. Both President Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, were born in Plains. Carter also noted that a funeral in Washington, D.C. with visitation at the Carter Center is being planned as well!

    in 1958-1959 i was in the usaf and stationed in georgia, myself and a friend of mine witnessed the ufo that former pres. jimmy carter saw. this object was huge and it was in the earths atmosphere because i could see that it left a smoke trail. from my prospective it looked to be as large as a football field. at 2 am in the morning on a moonless night it lit up the area like daylight. accordingly the radar operators of usaf tracked this object and obviously it did not hit the earth !!
