Skies alive with UFOs? Government report on mysterious sightings due soon
The U.S. government is set to release a UFO report soon, perhaps sometime this week. What will it say?
Science & Tech
This month, the U.S. government is set to release a UFO report put together by the intelligence community and the Pentagon, including a specially created Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force.
That task force was established to provide insight into the nature and origins of purported aerial objects, primarily reported by Navy personnel, that exhibit behavior that's tough to explain — and could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security.
Such news has boosted to stratospheric heights the "I told you so" believers who have long argued that unidentified flying objects are skimming through our skies, piloted by extraterrestrials chalking up interplanetary frequent flyer mileage points in the process.
However, are UAPs doing a disservice to UFOs? Are they really one and the same phenomenon?
Maybe UAPs are time travelers and we, Earthlings from the future, are the pilots? Or perhaps they're adventurers from far-off worlds just checking us out. Maybe UAPs are advanced high-tech drones built by other nations, or maybe they're home-built craft sponsored by some super-secret U.S. program?
For the moment, let’s put all that aside and ask: What, if anything, will the government’s UAP report reveal? And what will happen next?
