NASA has reportedly confirmed that it will officially join the UFO search after a UAP congressional hearing earlier this month.
The Unknown Aerial Phenomena (UAP) and official sightings were recently discussed at a public US Congressional hearing on May 17.
NASA previously stated that it “does not actively explore” or research UAPs.
After the first public congressional hearing on the subject in 54 years, the US space agency has reportedly changed its mind.
According to DailyMail.com, NASA sources have said that it is now helping with the US UFO investigation.
A NASA spokesperson reportedly said that the agency is “evaluating how best to provide our expertise in space-based Earth observations to improve understanding of UAP.”
The source said that NASA has “consulted with several government entities”.
However, he reportedly denied that NASA would set up its own UAP office and would instead help with other investigations.
The US government now has a new law that allowed for a government UAP task force.
According to DailyMail.com, a source associated with the US government and associated with NASA’s UAP research said that the US space agency may collect evidence from the astronauts.
The source reportedly said: “I suspect it will be a combination of efforts that will probably involve eyewitness testimony from NASA employees and astronauts, and then perhaps a review of old archival footage to assess whether the NASA archives will be able to provide information about the future.” There are some findings within that may help AOIMSG.”
AOIMSG stands for Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group, the official name for the UFO Task Force.
A Congressional hearing held earlier this month made several startling revelations of UFOs.
A Navy intelligence official revealed that the UAP has now been sighted by more than 400.
Some experts prefer the phrase UAP because they feel that UFOs come with a stigma and are taken less seriously.
UFO videos were played to Congressmen during the hearing.
One showed a fast-moving spherical object and one showed what looked like a perfect triangle with a green glow in the sky.
Experts have no explanation for these objects or the way they move.
