The topic of U̳F̳O̳s is regularly present in discussions between representatives of the UK Department of Defense and the P̳e̳n̳t̳a̳g̳o̳n̳. The question has been relevant for the past 50 years.
The Daily Star Sunday believes that much military personnel in Western countries today do not doubt the presence, if not of a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s, then of “objects of an unidentified unearthly nature.”
But government officials in different countries “have to formulate their claims about the existence of U̳F̳O̳s very carefully.”
Over the past two decades, 200 unidentified flying objects have been observed in the sky over Yorkshire alone.
According to The Wall Street Journal, in the summer of 2021, the Office of the head of US National Intelligence sent an analytical report on “unidentified aerial phenomena” to Congress.
The Intelligence Agency has formed a special working group to study the issue. Reports of 144 U̳F̳O̳ sightings were considered.
It was concluded that they are divided into:
– natural phenomena,
– military developments of the United States and partners,
– weather balloons,
– “possible Chinese and Russian super technologies”,
– “incomprehensible and possibly e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ phenomena.”
At the same time, all together the facilities “threaten the safety of flights and the national security of the United States.”
Analysts also expressed an opinion about a mysterious “dark body” similar to a U̳F̳O̳, which allegedly “devoured torpedoes and drones” in the ocean.
The author of the information was retired US Navy Commander David Fravor, who stated that during his service he met a U̳F̳O̳ 130 kilometers off the coast of San Diego while patrolling the area in a Super Hornet fighter. His partner clarified: the mysterious object literally “sucked a torpedo into itself.”
Popular Mechanics magazine published information that the P̳e̳n̳t̳a̳g̳o̳n̳ has spent $ 22 million to study such U̳F̳O̳s. Another case was considered when F-18 pilots took off in 2004 space objects that suddenly appeared at an altitude of about 27 kilometers, and then flew to the sea, after which they stopped at an altitude of seven kilometers and hovered.
Thus, the “aerospace threat” program has been working since 2007, but after five years it was closed due to the high cost. We must pay tribute – from 1947 to 1969, the US military checked more than 12 thousand reports of unidentified objects.
It turned out that in most cases people took stars, fireballs, clouds or airplanes for U̳F̳O̳s. Nevertheless, scientists could not explain 701 cases.
