For the first time in half a century, the United States Congress held a public hearing on UFOs, but the event did not contain any mind-boggling revelations about aliens. While the US government is still unable to positively identify the nature and origins of certain sightings, they are probably not aliens.
Scott Bray, deputy director of US Naval Intelligence, testified at the hearing: “We have detected no emanations within the UAP task force that would suggest it is anything other than terrestrial in origin,” according to The New York Times.
The public hearing was followed by a closed-door, classified hearing in which government officials were able to speak more candidly and show additional findings without cameras watching and reporters recording what was discussed. As to why the public hearing was more restricted, Bray said it was a matter of national security.
“We don’t want potential adversaries to know exactly what we can see or understand, or how we came to that conclusion,” Bray said. “Therefore, disclosures must be carefully considered on a case-by-case basis.”
As for what Pentagon officials made During the public hearing, there were two main clips, the first of which was an image of a “spherical object” captured through the window of an FA-18 fighter jet off the US West Coast in 2019. The government had no explanation for what this object was during the hearing.

The second piece of media was video and still images showing “little triangles” flying off the US East Coast earlier this year. Officials said they are “reasonably certain” the objects were drones and that the reason the images looked “creepy” was a result of the type of lens used to capture the image.

Getting back to aliens, Pentagon officials testified during the hearing that the government has not collected any material from an alien landing on Earth.
Bray further testified at the hearing that the US military currently has over 400 UFO reports, adding that Navy and Air Force crews now have better reporting mechanisms built into aircraft cockpits for sightings. unexplained, which has led to an increased number of reports. .
According to Vice, Bray went on to say, “The message is now clear: If you see something, you need to report it. And the message has been received.” He added that the social stigma associated with reporting an unexplained sighting among military personnel “has been reduced.”
