UFOs Declassified: That’s Weird

For centuries unidentified flying objects of all shapes, sizes and color have been reported from around the world. From strange lights recently recorded over a corn field in Krakow, Poland to an unknown triangular craft in Amsterdam, UFO sightings are everywhere and growing in number.

However, this isn’t a new phenomenon. Reported sightings were so abundant in the mid 20th century that the United States Air Force began cataloging them in a study called project Blue Book.

Recently, all of the images and data from Blue Book were made available online. It contains well over 12,000 reported UFO sightings.

But, Ufologists and even public officials want more. They want full disclosure of what they believe to be a cover up by governments of the world as to the truth of the existence of aliens.

Even former Obama Presidential Counselor John Podesta has tweeted about his desire for more facts to be revealed to the public.

Groups like Mutual UFO Network or MUFON have made it their goal to collect reported sightings from the public and investigate them. They receive anywhere from 400 to 700 reports a month.  Many can be explained but some cannot.

Even the former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer has pressed upon world governments, especially the US, to uncover evidence they have on UFOs and the existence of alien species that have visited earth for, what he says, thousands of years.

In 2011 the White House released a statement that, “The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race.”

Ufologists are not convinced and will continue their search for the truth and continue to push for the disclosure from people in power that we are not alone in the galaxy.
