This is the image of a UFO captured hovering 35,000 feet over the Atlantic that comes from a report by a secret Pentagon task force.
Two classified intelligence ‘position reports’ were issued by the American Department of Defence’s Aerial Phenomena Task Force – one in 2018 and one earlier this year.
The reports were circulated widely in the US intelligence community but have recently made it into the public domain.
The striking photograph, published by The Debrief on Thursday, came from the report published in 2018.
It appears to have been captured by the backseat weapons operator of an F/A-18 fighter jet.
Experts are at a loss to explain the object, but the best hypothesis is that it could be a GPS dropsonde – an atmospheric measuring device dropped by meteorologists over a hurricane.
As well as offering a list of other explanations, the report expressly stated there was a legitimate possibility the ‘unidentified aerial phenomenon’ (UAP) represented ‘alien’ or ‘non-human’ technology.
‘These revelations are extraordinary, and give the public a genuine peek behind the curtain when it comes to how the US government is handling the UFO issue,’ Nick Pope, who investigated UFOs for the UK Ministry of Defence, told DailyMail.com.
‘What this new information does is confirm that the US government is taking the UFO phenomenon more seriously than ever before,’ he added.
‘I anticipate further revelations shortly.’
