“People I think have conflated the concept of a UFO with whether we’re [being] visited by aliens. UFO means unidentified flying object, this is a highly non-specific term, it is so non-specific it admits you don’t know what you’re looking at. . . . The universe brims with mysteries, just because you don’t know what it is you’re looking at, doesn’t mean it’s intelligent aliens from another planet.”

When asked about his skepticism about intelligent extraterrestrials visiting Earth, Tyson responded, “The evidence is so paltry for aliens to visit Earth, I have no further interest. . . . It seems to me, aliens who visited us . . . would manifest more convincingly than fuzzy video, and there’s no reason to assume that because you don’t know what you’re looking it equals aliens that visited us from outer space.”

The Pentagon’s recent admission of having a program that studies UFOs has created a lot of buzz in the media. It’s official disclosure, but there have been millions of documents released via governments, military, and intelligence agencies that clearly document the fact that these things show up in our atmosphere all the time, that they are tracked on radar, and that military pilots are often scrambled to take a closer look.

The Pentagon claims the program was shut down, but the recently retired director of the program, Louis Elizondo, says otherwise. He also recently appeared on CNN stating that there is a great deal of evidence suggesting we are currently being visited, and have been visited, by intelligent extraterrestrials. You can read more about that, and him, here.

Even the pilot of the UFO video released by the Pentagon stated his belief that this particular object was “not from this world.”

What Neil Is Not Acknowledging

First off, Neil is not recognizing that this is a common occurrence, and has been for decades. He is not recognizing that it’s quite clear we are looking at an intelligently controlled and highly sophisticated piece of technology.

 

Encounters with UFOs have been tracked on radar as well as visually confirmed thousands of times, and this is just one example of multiple encounters, many of which are far more extraordinary than this one.

That being said, this one was quite extraordinary. We are talking about objects travelling at tremendous speeds and performing maneuvers that no known aircraft can perform, some of which even defy our current understanding of physics.

One of the pilots of this particular encounter, David Fravor, describes his experience as follows:

As I got close to it, probably within a mile to half a mile, it rapidly accelerated to the south and and disappeared in less than two seconds. . . . It had no wings . . . there’s no rotors. . . . This was extremely abrupt. Like a ping pong ball bouncing off the wall, it would hit and go the other way and change directions at will. And then the ability to hover over the water and then start a vertical climb from basically zero up towards about 12,000 feet, and then accelerate in less than two seconds and disappear — it is something I had never seen in my life.

Neil may be right about the fact that we don’t know what it is, but that doesn’t mean we should therefore ignore the phenomenon. He also fails to provide any alternative explanations. He doesn’t even speculate on the matter, which is weird because we’re talking about, again, an object performing never-before-seen maneuvers, displaying extremely technologically advanced capabilities.

It may not be ET, but if not, where is it from? From what we’ve been told, the military doesn’t even have access to this type of technology. If it did come from the military, how would the military pilots and their superiors not know about a craft in their vicinity, given the fact that they are themselves representatives of the military?

Is the craft manmade, perhaps from a rogue aerospace program that not even the U.S. military knows about? Who knows. But the fact that Tyson didn’t even acknowledge the operating characteristics of this craft goes to show that he doesn’t really recognize the significance and implications of such sightings.

Another interesting fact is that it is only when our pilots come too close to these craft that they perform evasive maneuvers or shut down the pilots’ critical instrumentation and electronic equipment. You can see some more examples and documents of that in the article linked below.

“Shoot First & Ask Questions Later” – What Happens When The Military Tracks A UFO on Radar

“The Evidence Is So Paltry”

“Intelligent beings from other star systems have been and are visiting our planet Earth. They are variously referred to as Visitors, Others, Star People, ETs, etc. . . . They are visiting Earth NOW; this is not a matter of conjecture or wistful thinking.”

Theodor C. Loder III, Phd, Professor Emeritus of Earth Sciences, University of New Hampshire (source)

Prior to the official disclosure of UFOs, and mind you, not just any unidentified flying objects, but again, objects travelling at tremendous speeds and performing maneuvers that no known aircraft can, skeptics like Tyson stated that the evidence for “UFOs” was practically nonexistent.

This simply isn’t true. The evidence for UFOs, before their official disclosure, was abundant. This really showed how little Neil had researched the topic. As a wise man once said, “Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance,” and that’s exactly what’s happening here.

“It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries.”

– Hermann Oberth, one of the founding fathers of modern rocketry (source)

He stated that, from a scientific standpoint, what we had at the time did not really constitute evidence at all. Meanwhile, hundreds of other academics and scientists were publishing articles in peer-reviewed journals, and giving lectures around the world regarding the scientific data and evidence that’s already been obtained from the UFO phenomenon.

The fact that Neil has been popularized, and given a mainstream media platform, is dangerous. Because he’s been given so much credibility, his words have the power to influence the minds and perception of anyone watching.

Well, when it comes to the extraterrestrial hypothesis, there is, as a former NASA astronaut and Princeton physics professor once said“abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time.”

To portray the extraterrestrial hypothesis as ridiculous, which Neil does, is simply ignorant. From a scientific standpoint, witness testimony is not credible, but when you have several hundred individuals who’ve held high ranking positions within the military, the academic community, and within intelligence agencies as well as private military contractors like Lockheed Martin, telling us that some of these UFOs are indeed extraterrestrial in origin, and are much more technologically advanced than our own, it’s not something to ignore.

“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, by other civilizations. Who they are, where they are from, and what they want should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not be the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.”

– Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee (source)

Neill is also not taking into account the Black Budget, which funds programs that have no oversight from Congress, just as described by a 1997 U.S. senate report. You can read more about that, and access that report, here.

Does that mean the scientific developments within this world are not real because we don’t have access to them? Absolutely not.

The National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, but its existence was hidden until the mid 1960s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years. What’s included in that is all of the science, technology, and engineering as well.

Apart from the UFO phenomenon, we have studies being published regarding intelligently designed structures we have found on Mars. A new study published in the Journal of Space Exploration titled “The Mounds of Cydonia: Elegant Geology, or Tetrahedral Geometry and Reactions of Pythagoras and Dirac?” has added to the already robust evidence pointing to “artificial surface interventions” on Mars.

“We have, indeed, been contacted — perhaps even visited — by extraterrestrial beings, and the US government, in collusion with the other national powers of the Earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public.”

– Victor Marchetti (Second Look, Volume 1, No 7, Washington, DC, May, 1979)

Here is another article/study regarding strange structures on the far side of the moon.

Why His Comments Were Suspicious

The point is, there are a number of factors that support the extraterrestrial hypothesis, and it needs to be looked at and examined. Why does Neil debunk it? Either he is paid to do so (Related CE Article: Ex NASA Astronaut & Princeton Physics Professor Says His Colleague Carl Sagan Fudged Evidence of Extraterrestrial Beings), or he is simply being challenged to look into it a bit more. But to refer to the extraterrestrial hypothesis the way he did is extremely ignorant. Out of the scientists who have studied the subject, he is extremely outnumbered.

“Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. . . . We are not alone in the universe, they have been coming here for a long time. I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real.”

– Apollo 14 Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell (source) (source) (source)

As you can see, you’re not “out there” or “dumb” for believing in the extraterrestrial hypothesis. You are in good company. Neil clearly hasn’t done his research or examined the evidence, as he clearly states there is none.

It makes you wonder, if Carl Sagan fudged data, could Neil be part of a campaign within the world of secrecy to ridicule the ET hypothesis?

“Behind the scenes, high ranking air force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe that the unknown flying objects are nonsense.”

– Former Head of the CIA Roscoe Hillenkoetter, 1960 (source)

They are clearly not nonsense.

The US recently released its highly anticipated Pentagon UAP report, but it wasn’t much more than a 9 page rundown of what has been known for decades. Regardless, for many, what was promising was that the UFO subject was being taken seriously again – and perhaps many more scientists might get involved.

For decades many have been warning about leaving UFO disclosure in the hands of a government that likes to use crisis’ or current events to expand its defense budgets. Further, why would we suddenly expect a government, who has been lying about this subject for 70 years, to suddenly come forth with the truth? What would inspire them to suddenly change their mind?

Perhaps it’s because the search for ET is an idea who’s time has truly come. We’ve reporting on this for over 13 years, and are mongst a community of researchers who have been encouraging humanity to look at the evidence for more than 70 years. It feels like an idea that human collective consciousness is more than ready to explore.

The impact the ET question has on our individual and collective worldview has the power to truly change the way we view ourselves and the meaning of life here on earth. Think of the implications answers to this question could have on how we set up and run our society as well. Technology, culture, collaboration etc – I spoke about this more in great detail in my extended interview for Greer’s. prior film Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind here.

Now, a new documentary from Dr. Steven Greer, directed by my good friend Michael Mazzola, seeks to explore what the films calls “the current government and media disinformation campaign promoting 3 big lies:”

1. We do not know what these UAPs/ UFOs are. WE DO.
2. Humans cannot make craft that can maneuver like UFOs. WE CAN and WE DO.
3. The UFOs are a threat. THEY ARE NOT.

Bold statements. Watch the film below and see what resonates most with you.

Pentagon UFO Report: Explanations Fall Into One of Five Categories. Aliens Not Ruled Out

So is it aliens? The long awaited Pentagon UFO report is here, and the executive summary alone gives insight into the nature of this report from US Intelligence Communities.

The limited amount of high-quality reporting on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) hampers our ability to draw firm conclusions about the nature or intent of UAP. The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) considered a range of information on UAP described in U.S. military and IC (Intelligence Community) reporting, but because the reporting lacked sufficient specificity, ultimately recognized that a unique, tailored reporting process was required to provide sufficient data for analysis of UAP events.

Essentially, the report aims to acknowledge 16 years of this phenomenon, while leaving out the 70 years it has been studying this phenomenon.

Still, as per the report, the U.S. government can’t explain 143 of the 144 cases of unidentified flying objects reported by their own military planes.

It acknowledges that “a handful of UAP appear to demonstrate advanced technology.”

In 18 incidents, described in 21 reports, observers reported unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics. Some UAP appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernible means of propulsion. In a small number of cases, military aircraft systems processed radio frequency (RF) energy associated with UAP sightings.

The UAPTF holds a small amount of data that appear to show UAP demonstrating acceleration or a degree of signature management. Additional rigorous analysis are necessary by multiple teams or groups of technical experts to determine the nature and validity of these data. We are conducting further analysis to determine if breakthrough technologies were demonstrated.

It goes on to drop the last 16 years of measuring this phenomenon into 5 key categories, non of which mention non human intelligent life, but that is technically a bin for it.

The five categories are,

Airborne Clutter: These objects include birds, balloons, recreational unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), or airborne debris like plastic bags that muddle a scene and affect an operator’s ability to identify true targets, such as enemy aircraft. Natural

Atmospheric Phenomena: Natural atmospheric phenomena includes ice crystals, moisture, and thermal fluctuations that may register on some infrared and radar systems.

USG or Industry Developmental Programs: Some UAP observations could be attributable to developments and classified programs by U.S. entities. We were unable to confirm, however, that these systems accounted for any of the UAP reports we collected.

Foreign Adversary Systems: Some UAP may be technologies deployed by China, Russia, another nation, or a non-governmental entity. UNCLASSIFIED 6 UNCLASSIFIED

Other: Although most of the UAP described in our dataset probably remain unidentified due to limited data or challenges to collection processing or analysis, we may require additional scientific knowledge to successfully collect on, analyze and characterize some of them. We would group such objects in this category pending scientific advances that allowed us to better understand them. The UAPTF intends to focus additional analysis on the small number of cases where a UAP appeared to display unusual flight characteristics or signature management.

The report does state, rather predictably, that some observations could be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or observer misperception and require additional rigorous analysis.

As expected, they are claiming that “UAP clearly pose a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to U.S. national security.” What’s odd about this statement is that this phenomenon has been known about for 70 years, yet not a single aviation incident has occurred that anyone knows of, so why are they a threat to flight all of a sudden?

Further, one could expect “a threat to nation security” would be mentioned  for two reasons: on a political level this means more attention will be paid to the issue, and there has long been political leverage gained from presenting certain global events as a threat to ‘get other things done.’

In this case, the report makes mention of foreign adversary threats should these incidences fall under that category, claiming these could be breakthrough or disruptive technology.

The report contends that further scientific analysis and more focused measurement apparatus would be required to answer some of the unanswered questions surrounding ‘the few’ instances where UAP performed ‘impossible’ maneuvers.

There is likely a classified version of this report that would be in much greater detail. The question is why after 70 years is the public still in the dark?

Perhaps the takeaway here is that although this is essentially a repeat of Project Blue Book of the 50s and 60s, we are now in a time where it’s being talked about again. Further, we are in an age where information spreads a lot faster and a lot further then back then. Perhaps that will be the kicker this time around.

We’ll have more detailed coverage throughout the day and into tomorrow.

The long awaited Pentagon UFO report is set to be released from the U.S. Intelligence Community. Some of those waiting expect a moment of acknowledgment, but perhaps nothing all that new, while others are hoping for a much deeper admission of non-human intelligent life. Time will tell.

In the wake, Senator Marco Rubio has issued the following statement:

Rubio Statement on UAP Report

Miami, FL — Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Vice Chairman Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement on the unclassified report on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) issued by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

“For years, the men and women we trust to defend our country reported encounters with unidentified aircraft that had superior capabilities, and for years their concerns were often ignored and ridiculed,” Rubio said. “This report is an important first step in cataloging these incidents, but it is just a first step. The Defense Department and Intelligence Community have a lot of work to do before we can actually understand whether these aerial threats present a serious national security concern.”

In 2020, Rubio, as Acting Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, included report language in the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 directing ODNI to submit a report to congressional intelligence and armed services committees on unidentified aerial phenomena.

We’ll have full coverage of the what’s in the report later today, if the report is released, and of course in the coming days as it will inevitably require much analysis and discussion. Sign up to our email list and follow us on Twitter for more to come.
