Sailors on a fleet of U.S. Navy warships sailing off the coast of southern California reportedly saw several ships in the convoy get “swarmed” by a host of unidentified flying objects (UFOs).
“The incident went on for hours, and then happened again and again throughout the month, with craft hovering and zipping around near the fleet with flashing multicolored lights,” the Daily Mail reported about the July 2019 incident.
U.S. officials have dismissed the incident, with the Deputy Director for Naval Intelligence Scott Bray saying he was “reasonably confident” the UFOs were drones.
“But documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell, in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, says that crew from the ships have told him the swarms of ‘at least 100’ UFOs possessed unexplainable capabilities far beyond traditional drones. And he warned that unless the government can determine who was behind the swarm, the intelligence failure would ‘dwarf our mistakes made surrounding the events of 9/11,’” the Mail reported.
“I don’t care if these were ‘drones’ or true UFOs, pyramids, triangles or even seagulls with lights strapped onto their wings. I want the fundamental question to be answered. Do we know the controllers of these units?” he told the U.K. paper.
The privately-owned International UFO Institute, which was established in the Japanese prefecture of Fukushima in the summer of 2021, shared the results of its first year of operations on Saturday.
The institute is headed by Takeharu Mikami, the editor-in-chief of Mu magazine (which covers supernatural phenomena and occult mysteries), and operates in the city’s Iinomachi district.
The area has long been famous for alleged UFO encounters around the Senganmori mountain.
Mikami told journalists that his researchers have so far registered 452 UFO-like sightings over the past year – 125 of which are backed by photos, and 24 others by videos.
ONE of the Pentagon’s chief UFO experts has revealed his identity for the first time – and claims he has seen countless mystery craft.
After writing a book on how the US government should prepare for alien contact, Dr Travis Taylor was offered the job of chief scientist for the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force, the organisation created by Congress to track UFO sightings.
Hiding in plain sight, Dr Taylor has long been known as a top investigator of UFOs and the paranormal at Skinwalker Ranch as well as on other History Channel programs.
However, unbeknownst to all but a handful of people, he was living a double life as the chief scientist for the Pentagon’s UAP Task Force.
A science genius, after leaving university, Alabama-born Dr Taylor wrote a book about how the US government should prepare for alien contact.
‘An Introduction to Planetary Defence’ caught the attention of a high-ranking intelligence official Jay Stratton, who offered him a job.
“Jay Stratton, the director of the UAP Task Force asked me if I would be interested in being the chief scientist,” Taylor told 8 News Now‘s George Knapp.
“And I was like, yeah, absolutely. Of course I would.”
The task force’s main job was to write a report for Congress summing up all the known evidence for UFOs.
They had already created a classified briefing of the most mysterious military encounters, starting with the 2004 Tic Tac incident.
Dr. Jacques Valée is an academic who holds a masters degree in astrophysics and a Ph.D., in computer science. He co-developed the first computerized map of Mars for NASA in 1963. The subject of UFOs first attracted his attention as an astronomer in Paris, and he subsequently became a close associate of J. Allen Hynek, who headed the US Air Force’s investigation into the UFO phenomenon, known as Project Blue Book.
Valée is one of the foremost researchers of the UFO phenomenon. He as been investigating it for decades. With governments around the world now acknowledging the phenomenon after years of ridicule, it would be encouraging for them to work with researchers like Valée. This, unfortunately, does not happen.
In one of his latest books, Forbidden Science 4, he shares a record of his private study into unexplained phenomenon between 1990 and the end of the millennium, during which he was traveling around the world pursuing his professional work as a high-technology investor. It’s a bit of a diary, documenting his experiences and encounters/meetings as he tries to examine and explore the phenomenon.
In an entry dated Thursday 26 March 1992, Vallée writes:
“I have secured a document confirming that the CIA simulated UFO abductions in Latin America (Brazil and Argentina) as psychological warfare experiments.”
If this is true, it’s quite concerning. Reading this line from his book triggered me back to earlier in his book when he mentions one of many conversations he’s had with Ron Blackburn, a former Colonel in the US Air Force.
Canadian officials are going to share information about unidentified flying objects with the United States government, according to Vice News.
Two letters from Canada’s Natural Resources Department and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) argued in a June 6 letter that there is a “shared priority for nuclear safety and security of nuclear facilities” due to “the growing interest in UAPs [unidentified aerial phenomena] in both Canada and the United States.”
Deputy Minister of Natural Resources John Hannaford said in his letter that CNSC is “committed to raising the issue with its United States counterpart and sharing any related information going forward.”
The letters came in response to questions raised by conservative Manitoba Member of Parliament Larry Maguire earlier in 2022 about the security of Canada’s nuclear facilities after reports of drone sightings and other types of UAPs/UFOs. “I asked these questions at the Natural Resources Committee to get the wheels of government turning,” Maguire told Vice News, “Congress is taking this issue seriously and so should our government.”
Dmitry Rogozin, the director-general of Russia’s space agency Roscosmos, said that some sightings of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), colloquially referred to as UFOs, could be attributable to extraterrestrial intelligent life.
Rogozin said in a Russian televised interview, aired on June 11, that the Russian Academy of Sciences had been investigating and gathering information about UFO sightings. About 99.9 percent of the sightings were determined to be atmospheric or other physical phenomena and were unrelated to any kind of potentially intelligent life, he said.
“But we accept that such phenomena could exist,” Rogozin also noted, according to a translation by Russian state-owned news agency Sputnik.
He also said he has read and viewed reports by Soviet test-pilot veterans, about what they witnessed during flights in the 1970s.
“What we’re talking about usually took place during the first test fights,” he said, according to a translation by state-controlled media outlet RT. He said he had also received similar information from the United States’ space agency NASA, the outlet reported.
The Russian space agency chief acknowledged that some people support the idea that human beings may be the objects of observation by other intelligent life forms, similar to how humans study microbes.
Rogozin’s comments come about a month after a public U.S. congressional hearing was held on UFOs, the first such hearing in over 50 years.
Scott Bray, the deputy director of Naval Intelligence, showed lawmakers two videos of UFOs but said he did not have an explanation for the objects seen in the videos.
NASA announced on Thursday they are putting a team together to examine unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs), commonly known as UFOs. An official promised to share full findings with the public.
The move marks the latest efforts of federal agencies to identify and understand potential threats caused by objects with unexplainable propulsion.
The study, focusing on identifying available data and how best to collect and study future ones, will begin early in the fall and is expected to take about nine months to complete, according to the U.S. space agency.
An independent science and analysis team will be led by astrophysicist David Spergel, president of the Simons Foundation and former department chair at Princeton University.
Given the “paucity of observations,” Spergel devoted to prioritize tracing clues of the most robust set of data from parties including civilians, government, non-profits, and companies.
“This report will be shared publicly,” said Daniel Evans, the assistant deputy associate administrator for research at NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, who will also orchestrate the study.
“All of NASA’s data is available to the public—we take that obligation seriously—and we make it easily accessible for anyone to see or study,” he said.
The latest statement follows the May 17 public congressional hearing into UFO sightings, the first in the United States in over 50 years, during which Pentagon officials on May 17 showed lawmakers two videos of UAPs recorded by U.S. military personnel.
Three former cavalrymen revealed their encounter with a UFO at a Middle East US military base in 2014 – and complained they had no official way to report the strange sighting.
Now the three veterans are speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com in a rare on-record interview as the first public Congressional hearings on UFOs in half a century got underway Tuesday.
They said they saw eight bright objects hovering and zipping across the sky at incredible speeds from a desert outpost in Sinai, on the Egyptian border, around December 2014.
The three cavalry scouts, who are trained in identifying aircraft, believe the objects they witnessed were of non-human origin.
One claims he was told ‘keep your mouth shut’ by a senior officer after word spread among his regiment about the sighting.
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.
A House subcommittee is prepping to hold its first hearing open to the public on UFOs in more than 50 years on Tuesday, with two top intelligence officials set to testify.
On Tuesday at 9 a.m. the House Intelligence Committee’s Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation Subcommittee will delve into details on reports of ‘unidentified aerial phenomena.’ Such high-level conversations have for the past half century been reserved for closed-door meetings among high-ranking military officials.
‘The American people expect and deserve their leaders in government and intelligence to seriously evaluate and respond to any potential national security risks — especially those we do not fully understand,’ the panel chair, Rep. André Carson, said in a statement on Tuesday.
Ronald Moultrie, the Pentagon‘s top intelligence official, and Scott Bray, the deputy director of naval intelligence, will testify before the panel.
Last June, Congress requested a report on ‘unidentified aerial phenomena,’ another term for UFO, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) offered a preliminary assessment focusing on 144 incidents dating back to 2004. DNI was only able to explain one.
The report said data was ‘largely inconclusive’ but most of the incidents definitely involved ‘physical objects.’ Many of the sightings were reported by military pilots.
