Throughout history, there have been numerous⏤too many to count here⏤sightings or accounts of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) or unexplained aerial phenomenas (UAPs) that have frightened, surprised or shocked people. It was 1639, when John Winthrop, the governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, recorded in his diary many of the strange happenings being reported by the english immigrants. Many high-ranking U.S. military and intelligence personnel have also reported these sightings over the past 75 years. There have been multiple incidents reported near sites associated with nuclear power, weaponry and technology, that have left officials puzzled as to what just happened.
So while this is not a new phenomenon⏤recent sightings have gotten the attention of high-ranking officials, media outlets and the public⏤who are all asking for more answers. Is this a national-security threat? Are we being targeted by some superior advanced race from a distant planet? Some officials are advocating more serious government attention to the matter.
The New York Times recently made news themselves when they reported on sightings from U.S. Navy aviators of unidentified flying objects between 2014 and 2015. The Washington Examiner explained, The U.S. government does not know what these UFOs actually are. The report focuses on witnesses of so-called “Tic Tacs,” but other shapes and sizes of UFOs have also been credibly recorded by the U.S., British, Chinese, Russian, and other governments for the past 65 years. But what are these strange things?
