The first public congressional hearing into UFO sightings in the US in over 50 years ended with few answers about the unexplained phenomenon.
Two top military officials tasked with probing the sightings said that most can ultimately be identified.
But they said a number of events have defied all attempts at explanation.
The sightings recorded by the military include 11 “near-misses” with US aircraft.
Some Unexplained Aerial Phenomena (UAPs) – as the military terms UFOs – seem to have been moving without any discernible means of propulsion.
During the hearing at the House Intelligence Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation Subcommittee, top Pentagon intelligence official Ronald Moultrie said that through “rigorous” analysis, most – but not all – UAPs can be identified.
