Earlier this year, the Pentagon announced the formation of a new task force that will be studying UFOs or “Unidentified Flying Objects.”
The formation of this new task force was revealed last year when the Pentagon acknowledged that military pilots were encountering aircraft that might not have been made by humans.
The new agency has been called, The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF).
Now, leaked photos that were reportedly studied by the task force, were recently posted by The Debrief, showing a metallic object hovering 35,000 over the Atlantic Ocean, off the eastern coast of the United States.
The UFO was spotted in 2018, by a backseat weapons operator flying in a US fighter jet.
Shortly after the aircraft was seen, it was designated by the task force as an "unidentified aerial phenomena."
According to the Pentagon briefing, the aircraft was an "unidentified silver cube-shaped object", and they suggested that the craft could be "non-human," "alien" or other "intelligences of unknown origin."
Nick Pope, a former UFO investigator for the UK Ministry of Defense, told Metro, "These revelations are extraordinary, and give the public a genuine peek behind the curtain when it comes to how the US government is handling the UFO issue."
"What this new information does is confirm that the US government is taking the UFO phenomenon more seriously than ever before," he added.
There has been some speculation that this object could be some sort of research balloon, which is a typical theory for UFOs, but as The Debrief notes, "the photo would not have been issued if there were reasonable estimates that the object was a balloon."
If the objects in the photos could be explained with the typical scenarios, then the photos would not have been sent to the task force for study. Furthermore, if the task force was able to explain the phenomenon, they would have made a statement explaining what it was.
The new task force was officially revealed to the public after the Pentagon released declassified videos that appeared to show government aircraft interacting with UFOs in the sky.
One of the videos, taken from US Navy aircraft, seems to show the pilots chasing a UFO off the east coast of the United States. Navy pilots reported spotting the objects flying around 30,000 feet in the air at hypersonic speeds and showing no visible engines or exhaust plumes typical of any known aircraft currently on Earth.
As Anonymous News reported this week, retired Israeli general Haim Eshed claimed that the United States and Israeli governments have been in contact with extraterrestrials for many years, but have not revealed this information to the public because they feel that the average citizen is not ready to know.
Eshed says that there are a collection of governments around the world that are in contact with an alien group known as the “Galactic Federation.”
All of a sudden, official sources seem to be taking the issue of extraterrestrial intelligence very seriously.
