Congress has held its first hearing on unidentified flying objects (UFOs) in more than 50 years.
The hearings looked at military sightings of UFOs at exercise areas and whether they posed a threat to pilots or national security.
Pentagon officials have not completely ruled out an extraterrestrial origin for the sightings.
Members of Congress spent more than an hour yesterday questioning government officials tasked with investigating sightings of unidentified flying objects.

The hearing, held by the House Intelligence Subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence and Counterproliferation, was the first on the subject of UFOs since 1968. Questions included whether or not the government had crashed UFOs in its possession and whether the Pentagon had received reports of studied or non-flying saucers interfering with nuclear weapons.
Although the C3 subcommittee may seem like an odd host for a UFO hearing, questions primarily focused on sightings of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs) at military training sites and whether they posed a security threat to US military personnel. The reasoning is that if UAPs are artificial in origin, they could be intelligence operations against US forces conducting training.
Two Pentagon officials, Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray and Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security Ronald Moultrie, answered questions about the Pentagon's recent UAP efforts.
The 2022 Defense Budget called for the Department of Defense to create an agency to track UAP sightings. This agency, the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group (AOIMSG), was tasked with "conducting scientific, operational, and technical analysis of data collected during field surveys ... to better understand and explain unidentified airborne phenomena."
"Tuesday's hearing was a step forward," Nick Pope, a former UK Defense Ministry UFO investigator, told Popular Mechanics, "For far too long this issue has been unfairly stigmatized and witnesses discredited or ridiculed. That stopped pilots and radar operators from speaking out, but some brave ones did and what happened on Tuesday is a testament to their bravery and a validation of their experience.”

Bray explained during the hearing that UAP incidents are likely to resolve into five main categories: airborne disturbances, natural atmospheric phenomena, US government or industry development programs (covert aircraft), foreign adversarial systems (drones), or an "other" Container that "difficult cases and for the possibility of surprises and scientific discoveries."
The "other" container could allow foreign adversaries who have developed breakthrough technologies, but the other obvious implication is that it could also allow extraterrestrials and extraterrestrial technology. However, both officials said they would not speculate on some of the more unusual sightings collected by the AOIMSG. Bray said that like everyone else, he wanted immediate explanations but that "it can take a lot of time and effort to understand". For this reason, he suggested, the Office of Naval Intelligence had taken a "data-driven, fact-based approach."
