Internet Reacts to Military Pilot’s Possible UFO Sighting Video

A U.S. pilot recorded what some say is a “fleet” of UFOs flying over the South China Sea. The video shows three bands of lights moving in what appears to be lockstep with one another far up in the sky. It’s another instance of pilots seeing something they can’t explain high in the clouds where only manmade objects can survive.

The pilot filmed the strange string of lights on Nov. 24, reports said. He was cruising above the clouds at 39,000 feet when he noticed three rows of four light each passing through the clouds beneath him.

“I don’t know what that is,” the pilot says in the 53-second clip. “That is some weird s***.” Then the lights disappear into the cloud. The pilot remarks, “gone.”

The video went viral as quickly as the lights appeared in the sky with viewers split over what it could be. The lights don’t move like an aircraft, but they seem to move together. Some discounted the video as just a reflection from the instrument panel shining in the window, but others weren’t as quick to dismiss it as a mistake.

“At first I thought cockpit glass reflection … but no,” one person tweeted. “It’s not consistent with that. Now I’m thinking, could it have been a military countermeasure exercise?”

The pilot recorded the video off of the coast of Hong Kong. Many skeptics believe this was a Chinese military operation and not out-of-this-world tech.

Another user speculated as to the type of planes possibly seen in the footage. (Assuming they’re not UFO’s of course.)

Congress Creates Office to Investigate UFO Sighting Reports

The U.S. government says it’s going to get serious about unidentified aerial phenomena — new parlance for UFOs. Congress approved the creation of the Anomaly Surveillance and Resolution Office to investigate sightings, reports said. Language in the national defense bill requires the agency to submit annual reports of its investigators’ findings, meaning they would be public documents that the public could review.

Congress approved the defense spending bill earlier this month, and it is on President Joe Biden’s desk for his signature. U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said there are too many security issues at stake to ignore these reports.

“I really see this as trying to know what is knowable and not having a head in the sand perspective on this,” she told TODAY. “These are serious issues of national security and technology that we should know about.”

Douglas Dean Johnson, a UAP researcher, said the agency will have teeth and won’t be just “some paper shuffler.”

“It would require that the Secretary of Defense and the Director of National Intelligence set up permanent structures at quite a high level,” Johnson told The Debrief. “Not just an office with some paper shufflers, but actual apparatus where this UAP office would have command authority, so to speak. The ability to instantly tap into designated existing military assets to do rapid field investigations where UAP encounters are reported.”

Are there aliens? We don’t know. But Avril Haines, the US director of national intelligence, suggested last month that we can’t rule it out. “There’s always the question of ‘is there something else that we simply do not understand, that might come extraterrestrially?’”
