Pentagon report acknowledges 143 UFO sightings that it can’t explain

The U.S. military has no terrestrial explanation for the dozens of unidentified flying objects that it’s documented in recent decades — but that doesn’t mean the UFOs are proof of alien visitors, according to a long-awaited intelligence report provided to U.S. Congress on Friday.

The unclassified, nine-page report acknowledges 144 encounters with what the government calls Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) since 2004. It only manages to explain one of those sightings as a deflated weather balloon, and it does not provide any new videos or photos of the other mysterious encounters.

Intelligence officials say that most of the sightings were likely physical objects and not tricks of the light. They say none of those objects were secret American projects, and they found no evidence that the UFOs might be advanced hypersonic technology from Russia or China.

Paranormal investigators claim ‘leaked’ UFO pictures taken from US submarine show vessels hovering over Atlantic Ocean

Researchers believe the black and white images published in a French magazine were taken from the USS Trepang SSN 674 submarine in March 1971

Paranormal investigators have claimed leaked photographs taken by the US Navy show UFOs hovering over the Atlantic Ocean.

Researchers believe the black and white images were taken from the USS Trepang SSN 674 submarine in March 1971 and show evidence of alien lifeforms.

The pictures are said to have been taken from the US submarine on its journey between Iceland and islands of the coast on Norway.

Alex Mistretta, an author who specialises in paranormal exploration, looked into the images after they appeared in French magazine Top Secret after an alleged leak.

Top Secret said one of the pictures had been inscribed with the words “Official Photograph. Not to be Released. CT”

Another read: “Unauthorized Disclosure Subject. Security Certificat (sic) SSN 674. Criminal Sanction.”

The USS Trepang was in the area at the time but some researchers suggest the information was easily available and could have been used to piece together a hoax.

Online commenter and fellow UFO hunter Bill Smillie said: "These look like the real deal. Possibly a shape changer which accounts for so many, yet actually a single object."

Michael Waters said: "Some UFOs can function through and under water quite well."

Nigel Watson, UK UFO investigator, told the Daily Express : "They are an odd selection of pictures, that feature types of UFOs that have been regularly spotted by witnesses in all parts of the world.

"Airship or cigar-shaped type craft have been reported since 1896 when there was a great wave of 'phantom airship' sightings though out the USA.
