There have been some unverifiable flying objects that people claim to have seen or even captured on their cameras or on video over the years.
As of August 4th, the Department of Defense in the U.S. has confirmed the establishment of the Unidentifiable Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF), which will be led by the U.S. Department of the Navy.
A Force to reckon with another force
The plan is for the UAPTF to "detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security," as per the Department of Defense's press release.
As the Department also stated "The Department of Defense and the military departments take any incursions by unauthorized aircraft into our training ranges or designated airspace very seriously and examine each report. This includes examinations of incursions that are initially reported as UAP when the observer cannot immediately identify what he or she is observing."
It is, indeed, not a matter to take lightly.
Just in April this year, the Navy released videos of three unidentifiable phenomena flying over our skies. In them, you can clearly hear the pilots and those filming in shock and awe as they voice what they see.
Given how little we know about UFOs or any extraterrestrial life out there, it's clear to understand why the Department of Defense would create a special force to look into the matter a little more closely.
Around the world, there have been reported sightings of UFOs or unidentifiable flying objects, with little to no explanation linked to them. Could these all just be tricks to the eyes? Perhaps, but the UAPTF will be keeping a closer eye on them starting this month.
The Pentagon may be the first to know exactly what is flying in our skies.
