Inexplicable UFO sightings have captured people’s imaginations for decades.
Many have been digging for answers for a very long time.
Now one former top official said the government is hiding their shocking UFO discoveries.
There has been no shortage in enthusiasm for stories about potential paranormal activity.
Now a new documentary on UFOs, “The Phenomenon,” has been released and former Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is one of the featured contributors in the film.
Since retiring from politics, Reid has become more vocal about his interest in the topic of UFOs and says the government has not been forthright about what they know.
In the film, director James Fox asks Reid if there’s anything that hasn’t been disclosed to the public. Reid answers, “I’m saying most of it hasn’t seen the light of day.”
“Why the federal government all these years has covered up, put brake pads on everything, stopped it, I think it’s very, very bad for our country,” Reid says.
In 2017, declassified documents proved that the government had been tracking UFO sightings and Naval aviators have had several bizarre encounters with UFOs as well.
While in the Senate, Reid supposedly earmarked funding for a Department of Defense project called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), which was a secret initiative that launched in 2007, but ran out of funding by 2012.
However, it was later confirmed by the New York Times that AATIP was rolled into an Office of Naval Intelligence project called Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force.
It’s still unclear what that program has discovered, if anything, but a Pentagon consultant and astrophysicist named Eric W. Davis told the Times that he briefed U.S. Senators about alleged “off-world vehicles not made on this earth.”
“We couldn’t make it ourselves” are the words Davis supposedly used when describing the recovered UFO materials to the Senate.
But as intriguing as the UFO talk may be, experts and people receptive to the discussion warn others not to jump to any conclusions. They argue that these UFOs could simply be spy planes from other countries, birds, radar ghosts, or other explainable objects.
From The Daily Mail:
“From 1947 until 1969, the air force investigated more than 12,000 UFO claims. However, a study code-named Project Blue Book later concluded that most of the sightings could be explained by stars, clouds, conventional aircraft or spy planes. 701 of the sightings, though, remained unexplained.”
“Project Blue Book” was recently turned into a television drama series about the unexplained UFO sightings and just last year, thousands planned the “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” event on Facebook.
Now with new documentary “The Phenomenon,” interest in the topic isn’t going to wane any time soon.
