In an astonishing article published in the New York Times today, it's been revealed that the Pentagon secretly investigated the UFO phenomenon from 2007-2011, spending black budget money that primarily went to American businessman Robert Bigelow's company Bigelow Aerospace for research and resources. The top-secret government program collected evidence of UFOs, including video and audio recordings, and also "studied people who said they had experienced physical effects from encounters with the objects and examined them for any physiological changes."
What is especially fascinating is not far from Area 51, in Las Vegas, "under Mr. Bigelow's direction, the company modified buildings in Las Vegas for the storage of metal alloys and other materials that Mr. Elizondo and program contractors said had been recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena."
In addition to investigating unidentified flying objects, the researchers concluded that they were in fact real and more mysteriously than that, did not originate from any known country on Planet Earth, but "somewhere else."
One of these declassified UFO cases includes a case from San Diego in 2004, when US fighter jets encountered a strange and intimidating object. Luckily, the event was captured on camera and is a great example of the legendary "foo fighter" UFOs that appeared alongside fighter jets during World War II:
According to the New York Times, astronaut and Senator John Glenn told fellow senator Harry Reid "he thought that the federal government should be looking seriously into U.F.O.s, and should be talking to military service members, particularly pilots, who had reported seeing aircraft they could not identify or explain."
Knowing what we know now, it's worth watching John Glenn's guest appearance on the show Frasier, where he plays himself and admits that UFOs are real and NASA knows it:
On the government's National Archives website right now, however, it still states that "Since Project BLUE BOOK was closed (in 1969), nothing has happened to indicate that the Air Force ought to resume investigating UFOS. Because of the considerable cost to the Air Force in the past, and the tight funding of Air Force needs today, there is no likelihood the Air Force will become involved with UFO investigation again."
That article may need some updating. In fact, all of our history books may be need some updating.
