THE PENTAGON will make some of its UFO findings public, following the acknowledgement of a strange video of an aerial phenomenon earlier this year.
The Pentagon’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) Task Force, a team dedicated to investigating UFO sightings from the US’s Department of Defense (DoD), will make some of its findings public. The group will release some of its findings twice a year with interest in UFO sightings growing.
However, the group is not looking at potential alien activity, but rather “any links [UFOs] have to adversarial foreign governments, and the threat they pose to US military assets and installations,” according to a report published in the New York Times.
Just last week, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said the Government was concerned another country like China or Russia could have made “some technological leap,” following several official UFO sightings.
Headlines were made across the globe in 2017 when US Navy radar footage of a mystery object with “glowing aura” and flying erratically was leaked to the public.
The debate over UFOs reached fever pitch when the footage emerged of what some called an alien craft.
One particular instance details footage from a Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet, a twin-engined fighter, showing an unidentified aircraft surrounded by a glowing
The object travelled at a high speed and rotated as it moved – the pilots onboard are captured as saying “there’s a whole fleet of them”.
Instances such as this seem to have prompted UAP to up the ante, although, once again, it is more concerned about possible rival technology rather than alien visitors.
The pilot who had the mysterious encounter in 2017, Chad Underwood, recently spoke out to reiterate the unusual behaviour of the craft which flew against strong winds while it was rotating which is seen in the leaked video.
He told New York Magazine’s Intelligencer in December: “You’re not going to see it with your own eyes until probably 10 miles, and then you’re not going to be able to visually track it until you’re probably inside of five miles, which is where [commanding officer, who first made visual confirmation of the UFO,] Dave Fravor said that he saw it.
“The thing that stood out to me the most was how erratic it was behaving.
“It was just behaving in ways that aren’t physically normal. That’s what caught my eye. Because, aircraft, whether they’re manned or unmanned, still have to obey the laws of physics.”
Mr Underwood added the UFO, nicknamed Tic Tac, was unlike anything he had ever seen before.
He said: “Well, normally, you would see engines emitting a heat plume. This object was not doing that.
“You don’t see birds at 5,000 or 10,000 or 20,000 feet. That’s just not how birds operate.”
