Details Of An Official Government Program To Investigate UFOs Surface Online

This week, the New York Times and Politico put out reports of an "Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program" that was launched in 2007 and heavily supported by Harry Reid, who was a Democratic senator from Nevada at the time.

The Defense Department has said that in 2012 the program ended, but people have their doubts.

According to the New York Times:

Officials with the program have also studied videos of encounters between unknown objects and American military aircraft — including one released in August of a whitish oval object, about the size of a commercial plane, chased by two Navy F/A-18F fighter jets from the aircraft carrier Nimitz off the coast of San Diego in 2004.

People on social media were having some mighty big feels over this one.

Some people were less concerned about space aliens and more concerned about campaign contributions.

Regardless of how the program was funded, people were eager to share their own experiences with strange sightings.

Many folks wonder what the Pentagon is NOT telling us.
