Recently released US Navy videos of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) have led to legitimate inquiries from the US government, decades after the infamous Roswell incident captivated Americans.
US intelligence agencies have been called to deliver a report on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) – the new, unprejudiced term for UFOs – to Congress in June.
The report will allegedly make public what the pentagon knows about UAP, renewing interest in the mysterious objects which have grown into a modern myth in American society.
The debate about UAP has become a hot topic in recent years following multiple leaked photographs and video recordings from the US Navy showing UAP craft operating at high speed over American airspace, often with no visible propulsion and manoeuvring in ways that baffle aeronautics expert.
A recently leaked navy video, captured in July 2019, shows a sphere-shaped unidentified object flying over water near San Diego before apparently disappearing into the ocean.
The Pentagon is interested in UFOs because they could pose a threat to US national security. In a recent televised interview, Lt Ryan Graves, a former Navy pilot, said that pilots on training flights have been seeing unexplained phenomena “every day for at least a couple years.”
Whether UAP is the result of advanced foreign technology or from a more otherworldly source, US government officials are now demanding to know more about them.
