If Fire in the Sky brings back some bad memories, you may want to stop reading before things get truly frightening.
In a report released on Friday by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, details looking into unidentified aerial phenomena — mysterious flying objects, assumed by many to be UFOs — have left us with more questions than answers in pursuit of signs of extraterrestrial life.
The National Intelligence report’s most significant finding, or lack of, involved 143 out of 144 aerial objects that remained unidentified after further video review. 18 additional objects were described as showcasing “some sort of advanced propulsion or advanced technology.”
Also included in the report, “In a limited number of incidents, UAP reportedly appeared to exhibit unusual flight characteristics. These observations could be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or observer misperception and require additional rigorous analysis.”
While many Americans are quick to speculate that the unidentified objects are extraterrestrial aircraft, or some type of otherworldly technology breaching for contact, government officials continue to block speculation that the mystery objects in the sky are in fact, aliens.
“We have no clear indications that there is any nonterrestrial explanation for them — but we will go wherever the data takes us,” announced a senior U.S. government official leading up to the breaking report on Friday.
He added: “We do not have any data that indicates that any of these unidentified air phenomena are part of a foreign collection program nor do we have any data that is indicative of a major technological advancement by a potential adversary. There is a wide, wide range of phenomena that we observe that are ultimately put into the UAP category. There is not one single explanation for UAP, it’s rather a series of things.”
