Do these Navy videos prove UFOs are real? Hear from the experts
Recently, there have been numerous videos surfacing of UFOs, or as they’re officially referred to as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP). With these videos, many are now claiming that UFOs are undoubtedly real, and alien existence has thus been proven. However, experts are saying that nothing has yet to be proven at all.
The video taken by U.S. Navy personnel sparked nationwide excitement over the evidence of UFOs which were officially declared as authentic footage by the U.S. government. However, some astrophysicists state that this “evidence” doesn’t necessarily prove that UFOs are real.
What this astrophysicist thinks of these videos
As people are also anxiously waiting for the official congressionally-mandated report on the recent sightings that’s due this summer, experts are warning extraterrestrial believers to not get their hopes up. Adam Frank, a professor at the University of Rochester, has recently written a column for The New York Times titled, “I’m a Physicist Who Searches for Aliens. UFOs Don’t Impress Me.”
In this column, Frank wrote of his skepticism concerning the actual amount of information we can gain from these recent sightings. The expert wrote, “While some researchers have used the footage to make simple estimates of the accelerations and other flight characteristics of the UFOs, the results have been mixed at best.”
Frank also added, “Skeptics have already shown that some of the motions seen in the videos (like the ocean skimming) may be artifacts of the cameras’ optics and tracking systems.” He further explains that the explanations for these UPAs may be more realistic & less alien-oriented. It’s likely that the report will not expose if UFOs are real.
For example, Frank suggests that there is a possibility that these objects may be Chinese or Russian drones. These small drones could possibly be bait for U.S. pilots to turn on their radar and other detectors to reveal the U.S.’s “electronic intelligence capacities.”
What should we expect from the official UAP report?
In December 2020, passed legislation declared that the upcoming report must include “detailed analysis of unidentified aerial phenomena data and intelligence” gathered by the Office of Naval Intelligence, the FBI, and the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force.
The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force was created last summer to “detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security”.
The report could possibly disclose the existence of next level technology created by foreign adversaries. The report is required to detail if these UAPs are potential threats or pose a threat to national security. The report would also have to detail if “a potential adversary may have achieved breakthrough aerospace capabilities that could put United States strategic or conventional forces at risk.”
Although these explanations are less exciting than extraterrestrial beings attempting to make contact with humanity, these would be real national threats to be wary of. The question if UFOs are real may have to be put on the back burner if foreign adversaries are revealed. Whatever the conclusion may be, the result is that these UAPs couldn’t be identified by one of the strongest government’s in the world.
When will the official UAP report be released?
When former President Donald Trump signed the legislation, it was confirmed that officials should release the report within 180 days. However, The Washington Post has stated that there could be a possible delay.
The Washington Post wrote: “Two factors might delay the report’s release: Agencies have missed similar congressional reporting deadlines in the past; and the provision is not technically binding, as the language was included in the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the bill, not the bill itself.”
They added, “‘In other words, it isn’t statute, but the agencies/departments generally treat report language as bill language,’ said one senior Senate aide familiar with the legislation.”
