New Developments Show Incoordination in Government UFO Report
As the countdown to the release of the government report on UFOs intensifies, new developments reveal just how uncoordinated the response has been.
With new reports on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs) coming forward almost daily (some from high-level officials) mainstream media has gotten in on the coverage. As Washington prepares for the report released at the end of June, the issue has turned from farce to serious inquiry. And now, many questions are being raised as to the government’s handling of the matter.
Nick Pope ran the British Ministry of Defence’s UFO project where he conducted official investigations into the phenomenon in the U.K.
Having worked within these infrastructures, Nick Pope gives us his take on the lead-up to the U.S. report.
The New Phoenix Lights Sighting Rekindles Mystery of the 90s
Those of us who were in Phoenix, Arizona, in the spring of 1997 were treated to a still-baffling phenomenon. Unlike many other UFO sightings, the one on March 13, now famously called “The Phoenix Lights,” was undeniable in its length, breadth, and duration. Thousands of people stood in astonishment as a gigantic alien craft hovered without a sound, in plain sight, catching the attention of the local and national news media, as well as the governor. But this was no once-in-a-lifetime event — just before the close of 2019, Phoenix was again visited by what many witnesses say were extraterrestrial spacecraft.
When events such as these mass sightings occur, the official reports are quite predictable. Regardless of what thousands of people attest to, government and military officials release statements that are beyond absurd to those whose experiences are undeniable. In the 1997 incident over Phoenix, the US Air Force attributed the sighting to flares dropped by an A-10 Warthog military aircraft engaged in training exercises at the Barry Goldwater Range in Southwest Arizona. However, eyewitnesses know what they saw: five lights in a formation that slowly loomed over Phoenix like a cloud for more than three hours, from 7.30 p.m. to 10.30 p.m.
Arizona’s governor, Fife Symington, later testified that he witnessed a massive delta-shaped craft silently navigate over the Squaw Peak mountain range. “It was truly breathtaking… I was absolutely stunned… As a pilot and former Air Force officer, I can definitively say that this craft did not resemble any man-made object I’d ever seen.”
