On Tuesday, Congress held its first hearing in half a century on unidentified flying objects. And no, there is still no state confirmation of extraterrestrial life.
Pentagon officials told the House of Representatives that there were about 400 reports of possible encounters with UFOs.
Last year, a seven-page report said there were only 143 collisions with unknown aerial events or UAPs.
The report examines the meetings from 2004 to 2021.
A Navy spokesman also said Tuesday that the pyramid-shaped objects seen in one video were most likely drones.
Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray added that investigators have so far found nothing of “extraterrestrial origin”.
Officials say they have selected the director of a new task force to co-ordinate efforts to collect data on what the government has officially called “unidentified aerial phenomena”.
Lawmakers on both sides say UFOs are a national security issue. A spokesman for the defense said the Pentagon was also trying to destigmatize the issue and encourage pilots and other military personnel to report anything unusual they saw.
