UFO Report Released: Congress Can't Explain More Than 100 Mysterious Objects In Sky, Won't Rule Out Aliens Just Yet
The U.S. government is unable to identify more than 100 flying objects, but won't call them UFOs -- at least, not yet.
That hasn't stopped conspiracy theorists from believing that this proves aliens and life on other planets exist.
Congress released a new intelligence report ahead of the weekend, stating that almost all of the 144 objects spotted and reported by military plans since 2004 are unidentifiable.
Office of the Director of National Intelligence's report was expected to give answers to the nearly 150 flying objects, but all it's done is continue to add flames to the alien fire.
While 133 of the objects are listed as "unexplained," one is labeled UAP — which in government shorthand stands for "unidentified aerial phenomena."
However, the report -- released on Friday -- falls short of confirming if the UAP is actually a UFO.
"In a limited number of incidents, UAP reportedly appeared to exhibit unusual flight characteristics. These observations could be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or observer misperception and require additional rigorous analysis," it reads.
The report makes no mention of aliens but it also doesn't kibosh the theory that life beyond our planet exists.
"We have no clear indications that there is any nonterrestrial explanation for them — but we will go wherever the data takes us," a senior U.S. government official said ahead of the report release.
“We do not have any data that indicates that any of these unidentified air phenomena are part of a foreign collection program nor do we have any data that is indicative of a major technological advancement by a potential adversary."
Last month, government officials told NBC that the objects could be advanced aircrafts created by other nations.
According to the outlet, part of the report remains classified.
The "Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force" was formed in August, and they were given the job to "gain insight" into the flying objects.
However, they've left more questions than answers.
In May, a leaked Navy video showed a UFO-like object flying in the sky before disappearing into the Pacific Ocean near San Diego, CA.
