A new government report stated that, while there is no evidence that the U.F.O sightings were caused by aliens, the government can’t rule the idea out either. In fact, there are very few, if any conclusions, that the Pentagon can make from the recently released footage. It seems to only raise more questions.

Talk show host James Corden‘s recent interview with former President Barack Obama has stoked American citizens’ fascination with U.F.O.s. Obama told Corden, “What is true, and I’m actually being serious here is that there is footage and records of objects in the skies that we don’t know exactly what they are.”

The new interest in U.F.O.s comes over a year after the U.S. government released documented footage of unidentified flying objects. The new report examines the possible causes behind the observed phenomena, concluding that nothing is definite yet. Though, there are some national security concerns.

It is clear that, for the majority of reported aerial phenomena, U.S. military technology was not responsible. According to government records, pilots did not come into contact with projects the U.S. government intended to keep secret. There must be some external cause for the reports then, one outside of the U.S. – or the solar system.

The report explored the possibility that other countries such as China or Russia were responsible for the unidentified flying objects. U.S. military authorities know that the two countries have been fervently working on hypersonic technology, which would be difficult to defend against weapons that can fly five times the speed of sound. China even displayed some in a recent military parade.

However, in order for foreign weapons to produce the effect observed by mostly Navy personnel, like inexplicable acceleration, direction changes and submerging, their technology would have to have far surpassed ours.

It is believed that hypersonic technology can bypass the U.S.’s missile defense systems.

The report ultimately concluded by saying that it is unclear whether the phenomena were caused by a foreign power, or one completely unknown to us.
