NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is the government agency that is responsible for most of the United States’ civilian space program. This Wednesday, May 31, an exceptional meeting was held in Washington during which this American agency spoke on UFOs (unidentified flying objects). Bringing together a panel of experts who took the time to answer a large number of questions from the public, this meeting was broadcast on the internet and caused a lot of talk.

Indeed, last Wednesday, NASA unveiled unpublished images of unidentified flying objects in the sky. This meeting, which had the main objective of showing that the space agency takes the subject very seriously, tells us that hundreds of unidentified aerial phenomena have been collected. Sean Kirkpatrick, the director of the service in charge of the resolution of cases of unidentified aerial phenomena within the Pentagon, nevertheless declared that very few are “truly anomalous”. Indeed, that him the figure would rise between 2% and 5%.

During this meeting, two videos were released by NASA. By showing these videos, the aim of the experts “is not to review one by one the events observed in the past in an attempt to explain them. It is to make recommendations to NASA on how to study them rigorously in the future”, as our colleagues from Ouest-France report to us.

In the first video that was released this Wednesday, May 31 by NASA, we can see a spehic object in the sky of the Middle East. The experts inform us that they have not, for the moment, found any explanation that can interpret these images. While the video was taken by a military drone, it still remains unexplained. Nevertheless, the space agency proved last Wednesday that it takes the subject very seriously.

During this exchange, a second video showed us unpublished images of unidentified aerial phenomena. Three dots could be seen moving across the Asian sky. Even if it was, ultimately, only three planes in an air corridor that moved strangely because of the oscillations of the sensor, NASA recognizes that some cases, between 2 and 5%, are very abnormal.

“Existing data, and witness accounts, are insufficient to provide conclusive evidence about the nature and origin of each event,” said David Spergel, astrophysicist in charge of chairing this work. “We need high quality data,” he continued.
