Due to in uptick in credible UFO sightings by pilots over the past few years, the Navy has now developed an official reporting process to document and investigate the instances.
While this isn’t the Navy acknowledging that alien life exists, it is an admittance that enough inexplicable encounters with unidentified aircraft or phenomenon have taken place to warrant further analysis.
Considering the constant advancement in both foreign and domestic defense technology, it would be silly to ignore possible threats to national security because they seem to defy physics or simply do not match any description of currently known tech. If the Russians, Chinese, or even little green men are zipping around our airspace in saucers, we need to know about it.
In 2017, for the first time ever, the US government officially acknowledged a UFO interaction. It occurred in 2004, in which Navy F/A-18 Super Hornets were called in to investigate a UFO spotted by the USS Princeton (CG-59), Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser off the Baja Peninsula, southwest of San Diego, CA.
The Princeton had been using their advanced AN/SPY-1 radar to successfully track mysterious aircraft in the days leading up the the encounter displayed in the footage. Strangely, the object(s) would appear unexpectedly at 80,000 feet and would then plummet toward the ocean, where it would instantly stop and hover at 50 feet for an undisclosed amount of time. The object would then shoot off with seemingly physically impossible speeds while making seemingly physically impossible turns. When confronted multiple times by the F/A-18 pilots, the UFO would travel miles in mere seconds.
