REVEALED: US military report for Congress says UFO sightings by Navy pilots could be aliens or new hypersonic technology from Russia or China - but are not a secret US government project

 Government officials have leaked details about the highly anticipated classified report on UFO sightings expected to be released this month, noting that there is no evidence to support that they are alien spacecraft.

But the report does not rule aliens out either, senior administration officials who were briefed on the report told The New York Times

The report also theorizes the objects could also be new weapons developed by Russian or China - and definitively says the phenomena are not a part of a secret project from within the United States government.

The report looks at more than 120 incidents of unidentified objects seen by U.S. Navy pilots in the past 20 years.

The UFOs were observed moving in patterns that remain difficult to explain, including their acceleration, ability to change direction and ability to submerge underwater.  

Senior officials told the outlet that the objects could be evidence of Chinese or Russian hypersonic technology - which means the countries may have 'far outpaced' the US in weapons development.

Hypersonic weapons are aircraft and missiles that can reach atmospheric speeds faster than Mach 5, or or about 4,000 miles per hour - making them almost impossible to intercept.

Video showing an unidentified flying object splashing down into the Pacific Ocean off the coast of San Diego two years ago has now been corroborated by military radar which shows a ship, the USS Omaha, being swarmed by aerial phenomena in July 2019. The image above shows nine unexplained objects - some of which were traveling at speeds in excess of 160mph

Last year, lawmakers added a provision to President Donald Trump's budget demanding that the secretary of defense and director of national intelligence release a report on what the government knows about such UFOs.

Government officials have previously conceded that the sightings are credible, and that the UFOs' origins remains unknown.


An unclassified version of the intelligence report is expected to be released to Congress by June 25, but will include a classified annex that 'will not contain any evidence concluding that the phenomenon are alien spacecraft.'

However, the officials said the government could also 'not definitively rule out' theories that they might be alien spacecraft, The New York Times reported. 

In some cases, the report rules out explanations such as weather balloons or other research balloons because of changes in wind speed during the sightings, the officials told the Times.

In the report, intelligence officials examined foreign military powers and believe at least some of the UFOs could be explained as hypersonic Russian or Chinese weaponry - into which both countries have been heavily investing. 

Examples of the unexplained sightings 'maneuverable' spherical objects which were seen flying in restricted airspace near Virginia Beach almost every day from 2015 to 2017.

F/A-18 fighter pilot Ryan Graves' F/A-18, whose squadron spotted the objects, has previously said: 'I am worried, frankly. You know, if these were tactical jets from another country that were hanging out up there, it would be a massive issue.'

Officials briefed on the report also described a giant Tic Tac-shaped object about the size of a commercial plane which was encountered by Navy fighter jets off the coast of San Diego in 2004.

Senator Marco Rubio warned last month that UFOs pose a serious threat to national security and can no longer be laughed off by lawmakers. 

'Some of my colleagues are very interested in this topic and some kinda, you know, giggle when you bring it up. But I don't think we can allow the stigma to keep us from having an answer to a very fundamental question,' Rubio said.

Rubio said the possibility that drones or aircraft from a rival military power - or from another civilization - were entering U.S. airspace without permission should be getting more attention and resources.

'I want us to take it seriously and have a process to take it seriously,' Rubio told 60 Minutes.

'I want us to have a process to analyze the data every time it comes in. That there be a place where this is cataloged and constantly analyzed, until we get some answers.'

'Maybe it has a very simple answer. Maybe it doesn't.'

John Ratcliffe, the former director of national intelligence, told Fox News that these are not just eyewitness accounts - they're videos and measurements taken after 'multiple sensors that are picking up these things.'

'When we talk about sightings, 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, 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,' he said.

Even former President Barack Obama raised recent interest in UFOs while appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden last month.

'What is true, and I'm actually being serious here, is that there is footage and records of objects in the skies that we don't know exactly what they are,' Obama said.

From 2007 to 2012, the Pentagon catalogued reports from Navy pilots of unidentified aerial phenomenon through its shadowy Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, funded at the request of former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Last year, the Pentagon formed the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force to research sightings of aerial objects that could pose a threat to national security.
