The National UFO Reporting Center sees many accounts of unidentified flying objects from various people in Massachusetts and other parts of the country.
We have long been speculating our position in the universe and have been calculating the chances of having visitors from other solar systems in our galaxy. The idea that aliens from other planets revolve around Earth in strange-looking saucers is nothing new. People from all over the world claim to have a sight of UFO’s every year. Massachusetts saw more than 100 reports in the year 2019 alone.
The website for the National UFO Reporting Center is filled with accounts claiming to have seen flying alien saucers, one of which is from late September, which a viewer reported seeing over Caped Cod Bay.
“I saw a strange plane or craft flying low over trees on the outer cape in the town of Eastham. I proceeded to Cape Cod Bay to check on the direction of the craft and if it was a plane. The craft flew out of my sight but I noticed many other lights (crafts? Orbs?) flying over the tip on Race Point in Provincetown.”
There are also less specific reports on the website, like this one from West Springfield in June: “I saw what can best be described as a large metallic ‘donut.’ ”
The mid-20th century saw the United States hunting for UFO’s when a businessman named Kenneth Arnold filed the first report of a UFO sighting over Mountain Rainier in 1947.
Arnold reported that he saw nine-high speed crescent-shaped objects zooming along at a thousand miles per hour.
While the object Arnold saw was not saucer-shaped, the way he described it led to the birth of the popular term “flying saucers”. Following that, Americans have been obsessed with the idea that aliens visit us now and then.
It is easier to disregard some of the eye-witness accounts on the National UFO Reporting Center, however, a $22 million project called Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program that began to investigate “unidentified aerial phenomena” solidified the idea of intergalactic travel, according to The New York Times and Politico.
Harry Reid, the former Nevada Democratic Senior, appropriated for the program into the Pentagon budget. Nevada is home to the infamous Area 51, which is a source of multiple alien conspiracy theories.
While the Pentagon program was defunded in 2012, a report released in late 2017 stated that the investigators detailed an account by retired Navy Commander David Fravor, who saw an oblong aircraft flying through his airspace at an unprecedented speed, navigating in a way that defies aerodynamic laws.
“I can tell you, I think it was not from this world,” Fravor told ABC News in 2017. “I’m not crazy, haven’t been drinking. It was — after 18 years of flying, I’ve seen pretty much about everything that I can see in that realm, and this was nothing close.”
“I don’t know what it is,” he said. “I don’t know what I saw. I just know it was really impressive, really fast, and I would like to fly it.”
