2020 was banner your for UFO sightings, and it seems as if there is going to be no let-up in 2021. There have already been many unusual aerial phenomena we have written about in these pages. Now it seems as if the Pentagon is poised to release an unprecedented report with detailed information about the recent spate of UFO sightings.
The bombshell was revealed by the former Director of National Intelligence under President Trump, John Ratcliffe. Speaking on Fox News recently, Ratcliffe said that the startling report will reveal evidence of UFOs breaking the sound barrier without a sonic boom and other “difficult to explain” aerial phenomena.
“There are a lot more sightings than have been made public,” he told Fox host Maria Bartiromo. “Some of those have been declassified.”
“And when we talk about sightings,” Ratcliffe continued, “we are talking about objects that have been seen by Navy or Air Force pilots or have been picked up by satellite imagery that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain, [such as] movements that are hard to replicate that we don’t have the technology for. Or traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom.”
The soon-to-be-released Pentagon report will also detail any threats posed by the aerial phenomena and whether foreign adversaries are suspected of controlling them.
“Weather can cause disturbances, visual disturbances,” Ratcliffe said. “Sometimes we wonder whether or not our adversaries have technologies that are a bit further down the road than we thought or than we realized. But these are instances where we don’t have good explanations for some of the things that we have seen.”
Ratcliff’s remarks came several months after the Pentagon declassified three well-known UFO videos released by the US Navy.
Ratcliff did not go as far as to say that there will be any mention of “aliens” in the Pentagon report, just an attempt to explain the aerial phenomena and the recent uptick in sightings. Sightings were up in 2020 compared to the previous year — with more than 6,600 recorded during that period, according to National UFO Reporting Center data.
Ratcliffe said he had hoped to release the information before the Trump administration’s departure from the White House in January, but “we weren’t able to get it down into an unclassified format that we could talk about quickly enough.”
The Pentagon report is expected to be released by June 1, Bartiromo said during the interview.
