How common are UFO sightings?



UFOs are currently the hot topic amongst U.S. officials with Congress holding a public hearing just today

They’ve been frequently dismissed as science fiction but now even U.S. Congress is discussing the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

The governing body held its first public hearing on UFOs in over 50 years.

This is all in an effort to increase trust and transparency around their investigations into what they label as “unidentified aerial phenomena” or UAPs.

Pentagon officials testified before a House Intelligence subcommittee with the Chair pointing out that this phenomena is a “potential national security threat”.

Representative Andre Carson urged for more seriousness around the topic as pilots typically avoid reporting any sightings and if they do they’re often laughed at, and this of course has slowed down intelligence analysis.

UAP sightings have been reported about 400 times since June.

Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence says they have ramped up their investigations, making them more data-driven rather than relying solely on observations.

Bray played a number of videos featuring unidentified objects and explained how fleeting this phenomena usually is.

One clip from a few years ago showed floating green triangles which were later recognised as unmanned aerial systems.

But there are some cases that Bray simply could not explain.

Although everyone’s excited thinking the US government is on the search for aliens, Members of Congress have stressed that the sightings aren’t being investigated for extraterrestrial activity but rather for national security purposes.

Congress emphasised their duty to ensure that foreign countries are not releasing new technologies into their airspace.

But intelligence officials will not be revealing all the information they have citing that it is important to protect sensitive intel.

For now, the Pentagon has revealed that they’ve assigned a Director for a new task force investigating unidentified aerial phenomena.

There hasn’t been any evidence of extraterrestrial life yet but perhaps more will be revealed as the investigation unfolds.
