UFOs have been spotted hovering over top secret military bases and flying next to aircraft, according to the US Navy.
The institution is now drafting new guidelines for pilots and other naval employees so it’s easier for them to report any mysterious or alien objects they see floating in the sky.
The decisions to make these new guidelines for UFO sightings has been made in response to recent reports of unidentified flying objects.
In a statement given to US news outlet Politico, the US Navy said: “There have been a number of reports of unauthorised and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years.
“For safety and security concerns, the Navy and the [U.S. Air Force] takes these reports very seriously and investigates each and every report.
“As part of this effort, the Navy is updating and formalising the process by which reports of any such suspected incursions can be made to the cognisant authorities. A new message to the fleet that will detail the steps for reporting is in draft.”
Last year, a leaked report from the Pentagon revealed that a supersonic UFO shaped like a tic-tac had stalked a US Aircraft carrier for days before vanishing into thin air.
Some of the pilots said that the aircraft could make itself invisible as it travelled next to them.
The craft was described by one of the pilots mentioned in the report as “solid white, smooth, with no edges… uniformly coloured with no nacelles, pylons or wings”, and looked like “an elongated egg or Tic Tac”.
Retired Pentagon official Luis Elizondo once ran a secret Pentagon program that used to investigate UFOs until it was reportedly shut down in 2012.
He told Politico and government personnel were often encouraged not to report sightings, making this new admission from the US Navy even more groundbreaking.
