Unidentified flying objects (UFOs) sighted by military pilots in recent years have not been proven to be extraterrestrial spacecraft by US intelligence officials, but they haven’t ruled it out either.
The New York Times reported that officials are unable to explain the strange movements in the skies that continue to perplex the US military and scientific establishment, based on information from senior administration officials who were briefed on the results of a long-awaited government assessment into these phenomena.’We’re at the infancy of it,’ says former Senate majority leader Harry Reid about UFOs.
UFOs are Alien?
Officials told the newspaper that the research found that the vast majority of the more than 120 sightings in the last 20 years did not come from any US military or government technology.
This finding appears to rule out the likelihood that military pilots reporting unusual airborne phenomena had come across technology from projects the US government was attempting to keep secret.
Officials claim that this judgement is the “sole conclusive finding” in the still-classified intelligence assessment. “Few additional clear conclusions” will be provided in an unclassified version of the report, which is expected to be handed over to Congress by June 25.
As a result, “senior officials briefed on the intelligence recognised that the government could not completely rule out possibilities that the events spotted by military pilots might be alien spaceships due to the ambiguity of the findings,” according to the New York Times.
Many aspects surrounding the sightings, such as how the spooky objects accelerated and shifted directions, were difficult to explain, according to the research.
According to the paper, one conceivable idea – that these conceivable object were weather balloons or something similar – fails in some cases due to changes in wind velocity during these contacts.
Unidentified objects and foreign armed troops were also mentioned in the UFO report.
Officials believe that “at least some” of the sightings by US pilots were due to experimental equipment from a rival state, most likely China or Russia.
Recognizing that these sightings did not involve American technology, intelligence and military authorities were concerned that Russia or China would be “experimenting with hypersonic technology.”
