UFO sighting june 2021
Are we alone? Have alien spacecraft been buzzing across Earth’s skies? Those are the questions being asked in the U.S. government’s new report on unexplained aerial phenomena — its preferred term for what many of us call unidentified flying objects, or UFOs.
So far, it looks like the answers in the report will leave UFO spotters and conspiracy theorists unsatisfied. U.S. officials and analysts who examined video footage from U.S. Navy planes and other records say the evidence doesn’t point to alien technology — but they also say they can’t explain the unusual phenomena.The report’s release ufo sighting is still pending; after The New York Times first reported news of its findings Thursday night, a senior U.S. official confirmed to NPR that details in the newspaper’s story are accurate.Intelligence officials: The airborne vehicles weren’t made by the U.S. One of the report’s ufo sighting only substantial conclusions is that the craft encountered by the military — objects that showed unusual flight capabilities — were not created by classified programs run by the U.S. government or the Pentagon.
That finding jibes with statements previously made by Luis Elizondo, the former leader of the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. He spoke to NPR in 2017 after the release of a previously classified video taken by a camera aboard a U.S. Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet.
In the footage, pilots struggled to explain what they were seeing ufo sighting as an object on their sensors maintained a high speed — and then, for no apparent reason, rotated.
“Look at that thing!” one pilot exclaimed.
Earlier, the same pilot remarked they might be seeing some type of drone.
“There’s a whole fleet of them,” the other pilot said.
“My gosh!” the first pilot replied. “If you’re asking my personal opinion from here, look, I’ve got to be honest with you, I don’t know where it’s from. But we’re pretty sure it’s not here,” Elizondo said. “Now does that mean it’s ‘out there’? Whether or not it’s Russian or Chinese inside or little green men from Mars or frankly your neighbor’s dog, I wanted to purposely steer away from that ufo sighting because I wanted to focus on truly the raw science: What were we seeing, and did it pose a threat to national security?”
When UFOs went legit Interest in the idea that alien beings might be visiting Earth from off-planet has skyrocketed in recent years, particularly after the Pentagon verified that several videos showing what look to be objects moving at incredible speeds and with remarkable agility had indeed come from official U.S. Navy sources.In 2017, news of the existence of a secretive Pentagon program that was established to examine sightings of unexplained aircraft and phenomena ignited public interest. It also brought new legitimacy and definition to an area of research that for decades was defined by speculation — and stereotypes of UFO enthusiasts running around in tinfoil hats.The Pentagon reportedly began its Advanced Aerospace ufo sighting Threat Identification Program in an early form in 2007. Congress then funded it, and Elizondo took it over in 2010. But the Defense Department halted it in 2012. In April 2020, the Department of Defense officially released footage from the Navy fighter pilots’ on-board cameras. The department said it was releasing the ufo sighting videos to clear up misconceptions about whether footage that had already been circulating is real. “The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as ‘unidentified,’ ” the Defense Department said. Americans, it seems, are ready to believe. A 2019 Gallup Poll found that a third of U.S. adults agreed with the idea that “some UFOs have been alien spacecraft visiting Earth from other planets or galaxies.” Why the government report is coming out now
The new report on UFOs is poised to be released to Congress this month by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. U.S. intelligence agencies and the Defense Department are required to report on what they know about ufo sighting unusual aerial phenomena because of a stipulation in the massive COVID-19 relief and government funding bill that Congress approved last year.In a section titled Advanced Aerial Threats, the spending bill calls for federal agencies to submit a report on “unidentified aerial phenomena (also known as ‘anomalous aerial vehicles’), including observed airborne objects that have not been identified.”
When former President Donald Trump signed the bill on Dec. 27, he also triggered the start of a 180-day deadline for the director of national intelligence to send the report to Congress.
The report will go to the Intelligence and Armed Services committees in each chamber of Congress.
