For most of the dreamers, an unidentified flying object (UFO) is a possible extraterrestrial spacecraft. But what a UFO almost always proved to be is just a phenomenon that was not yet been identified. To avoid being ridiculed, investigators prefer to use the term “unidentified aerial phenomenon.”
The term UFO dates back in 1953 when the United States Air Force had to give a name to these events. The famous photograph of the “flying saucer” or “flying disc” (as they were referred to back in the 40s) taken on July 31, 1952, in Passaic, New Jersey, had a lot to do with the decision to investigate such aerial phenomenon.
Just like the event reported by the civilian pilot Kenneth Arnold in 1947, on June 24 pushed the authorities to take these events seriously. Arnold said he had seen no less than nine flying-objects near Mount Rainier.
These events continue to occur, and dreamer to believe they are alien ships. Alien ships that were never observed to fly in space by neither of the space observatories installed in the area, nor by those surveilling other planets. But people need dreams—especially Americans. Dreaming is in our collective unconscious.
The Pentagon releases UFO videos
We need to be understanding. Even President Trump understands that when he says, “people are saying they’re seeing UFOs. Do I believe it? Not particularly.” It is Trump’s comment on the briefing the Navy made him on the events that occurred in November 2004 and January 2015.
Three aerial events were registered back then, and the Pentagon recently released the unclassified footages. Footages of the events were already circulating since 2017 when the Stars Academy of Arts & Science first published them.
In 2004, 100 miles out into the Pacific Ocean, two Navy pilots were investigating objects previously tracked by a Navy cruiser for two weeks. They found an oval-shaped object impending above the water that fled at hallucinating speed once they’ve tried to get closer. The Pentagon released to footage wanting to recalibrate the public perception on the reality of the event and to state that the events are still considered to be unidentified.
“After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these declassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena,” said Sue Gough, the Pentagon spokesperson.
