Americans have long been fascinated by UFOs and with recent videos captured by US navy pilots, those interested in the possibility of extraterrestrials visiting earth might get some answers.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has now set up an investigation relating to the existence of unidentified flying objects. As reported by Business Insider, NASA’s new administrator, Bill Nelson indicated that it remains a mystery as some of the world’s top space agencies also struggle to identify what exactly the high-speed flying objects detected by US Navy personnel are.
Nelson who had a storied career in both politics and in the US Army indicated that he does not believe that UFOs point to evidence of extraterrestrials visiting earth, however, it would be a hasty decision to rule that out as a possibility.
“We don’t know if it’s extraterrestrial. We don’t know if it’s an enemy. We don’t know if it’s an optical phenomenon. We don’t think [it’s an optical phenomenon] because of the characteristics that those Navy jet pilots described … And so the bottom line is, we want to know, ” Nelson said.
No formal task force has been arranged yet, as Nelson wants researchers to investigate the subject thoroughly. NASA’s press secretary Jackie McGuinness also confirmed that researchers were directed to continue exploring and studying the topic, USA Today reported.
Cape Town experienced its own UFO sighting about a month ago as residents from Tableview and Milnerton were left stunned as they saw three distinct lights hovering in the sky.
