Though UFO sightings have happened for decades, people often don’t take too much stock in them, much less the possibility of them being alien in origin. However, the National Intelligence director seems to think the possibility shouldn’t be dismissed so easily.
The Washington National Cathedral recently hosted the “Our Future in Space” event, which Brobible covered. Avril Haines, the United States Director of National Intelligence, attended and made an interesting admission while there. When asked about UFO reports originating from former military members and government officials, he gave a detailed answer. One part of his answer may turn some heads though, as it acknowledged aliens being a possibility. “Always, there’s also the question of, ‘Is there something else that we simply do not understand, which might come extraterrestrial?” he stated.
This answer comes after Haines said Congress having flight concerns and counterintelligence issues. After mentioning UFO reports possibly being aliens, he said it’s because they can’t fully understand everything in the reports. “We were pretty sure that we were not going to get to characterize every single one of these [UAP reports] in the various categories that we identified because frankly, we weren’t able to understand everything about it.”
Continuing, Haines stated organizations don’t have a consistent way to report UFO-related information. Earlier this month, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand proposed an upcoming amendment to the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act. If it goes through, the U.S. government will be required to submit annual UFO reports in an unclassified format, MSN.com reported.
The amendment will also establish a committee to help with the reports. This committee will include members of NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration, the National Academies of Sciences, as well as several other organizations.
International Space Station Footage Sparks UFO Theories
It’s one thing for people on Earth to think they’ve spotted a UFO, but another for footage from space to do it. Recent International Space Station footage does just that, sparking wild UFO theories in the process.
Brinkwire supplied the footage from an ISS live stream and noticed something odd. Though you may struggle to see it, there’s an odd “cube” above the ocean. While it may initially seem to be a cloud or something of that nature, it looks to be solid. Further, the cube exerts a shadow, which proves it is actually there. UFO hunter Scott C. Waring watched the footage and gave his own theory.
“I noticed this strange shape over the ocean when using the space station live cam,” Waring began. “The object is a cube UFO over the ocean. It may have recently come out of the ocean, leaving the ocean floor and getting ready to leave into space. This is 100% proof that UFOs can be seen from the Space Station.”
It’s difficult to say for certain what the object is, but it definitely is strange.
