The report will be presented to Congress by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and it will include the findings of a US navy-led task force established by the Pentagon in August 2020 to investigate "unidentified aerial phenomena" (UAP) incidents.
The US is set to release a landmark report on UFO sightings throughout history. Though no specific date for the report's release has been announced, local media outlets believe it could be released as early as June 25. It was supposed to arrive at the end of June.
The report will be presented to Congress by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and it will include the findings of a US navy-led task force established by the Pentagon in August 2020 to investigate "unidentified aerial phenomena" (UAP) incidents. The Pentagon in recent years has confirmed the authenticity of several videos from naval aviators showing enigmatic "aerial phenomena" exhibiting speed and maneuverability, unknown to the usual human knowledge.
The much-anticipated report will mark a turning point for the US military after decades of being dismissive of the observations of unidentified flying objects and "flying saucers." "We take reports of incursions into our airspace – by any aircraft, identified or unidentified – very seriously, and investigate each one," Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough said, according to Reuters.
What to expect?
On June 3, a report by the New York Times said that US intelligence officials have found no evidence that a series of unidentified aerial phenomena observed by the navy's aviators in recent years were alien spacecraft. The newspaper based its report on senior Biden administration officials, who were briefed ahead of the report's release.
The report also discovered that the vast majority of the more than 120 UAP incidents observed by personnel aboard US navy aircraft and warships over the last two decades did not originate from any American military or other advanced government technology. The sightings have "mystified scientists and the military," according to the officials in the report.
Breath mints 'Tic Tac'
According to Reuters, a retired US Navy lieutenant commander named Alex Dietrich recalled seeing UAP that looked like large "Tic Tac" breath mints in 2004. Another warship asked Dietrich and her then-commanding officer, fellow pilot David Fravor, to investigate radar contacts in the area moving inexplicably in November 2004 while on a routine training mission with the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz off the southern California coast.
The oblong object, according to Dietrich, lacked "any visible flight control surfaces or means of propulsion." After she and her colleagues were debriefed, Dietrich believes the incident was "analyzed in a professional, sober way" by the military chain of command.
