An expert warns that Russian and Chinese military drones could explain mysterious cases of alleged UFO sightings.
Nick Pope, who investigates UFOs for the UK Government, said the issue of unidentified aerial phenomena had been “in the dark” since the Pentagon report was released in June.
It concluded that 143 alleged sightings by US military pilots since 2004 remained unexplained.
Pope told The Sun: “The UFO community is heating up the debate because you have to believe it’s aliens or drones.
“I think the real world is more nuanced than that. It’s not a binary situation and it’s entirely possible to imagine a scenario where the sightings could be both. Chinese people and Russian drones and aliens. It’s not like they’re mutually exclusive.”
The former Defense Department official said the UFO debate was “simplified” because of “human nature”.
Pope warned that the US could be behind its rivals in trying to explain mysterious sightings.
Last year, researchers in China used artificial intelligence to analyze mysterious objects in the country’s airspace, South China Morning Post reported.
In a 2019 report, Li Chen, of the Air Force Early Warning Academy warned: “The frequent occurrence of unknown conditions in recent years… brings serious challenges to security. our country’s air defense.”
He believes AI can “think outside” as researchers try to establish the origins behind alleged sightings – whether it’s the government or hostile nature.
The researchers suggest that artificial intelligence can establish the purpose of an object. The spheres are more likely to be man-made if they are deployed during major military exercises or political exercises according to the SCMP.
China has apparently only recorded one UFO sighting that occurred at an air base in Cangzhou, Hebei on October 19, 1998.
Two jets were instructed to intercept a low-flying object that mysteriously appeared above the airbase, according to the Hebei Daily.
The strange-looking orb has been compared to a “short-legged mushroom” as two beams of light shine down from its abdomen.
And, it climbed to an altitude of 20,000 meters before disappearing from radar when planes tried to intercept it.
Meanwhile, in March 2012, locals in Siberia were bewildered after a metal object, known as “UFO debris” was discovered.
People speculated that it fell from Earth, but officials at Russia’s space agency confirmed the object was “not related to space technology”. Telegraph reported.
And, in 1989, children in Voronezh, formerly part of the Soviet Union, claimed that they had seen a pink halo and a red ball hovering in the sky.
They claimed to have seen a three-eyed alien wearing bronze boots and a saucer on his chest exiting a spaceship, according to reports. state-run TASS news agency.
The kids sensationalized that aliens used a laser gun to make a 16-year-old boy disappear.
‘Sleepy behind the wheel’
“The closed and secretive nature of China and Russia means they can investigate UFOs for much longer, but the US just seems sober about this natural security issue,” Pope said.
“America has fallen asleep in the spinning wheel. I think it’s like the old saying ‘the greatest trick the devil ever pulls out is to convince the world he doesn’t exist’. I think the officials looked the other way.”
The Pentagon’s landmark report that investigation of unidentified aerial phenomena examined 144 alleged sightings, but could only identify once with “high confidence”.
The object was determined to be a “large, deflated balloon” and was brought down to “mess in the air”.
Former NASA astronaut Bill Nelson believes that people are not alone in the universe.
While GOP congressman Tim Burchett speculates that Russian strongman Putin will send a UAP to demonstrate superiority amid national security concerns.
Experts believe this year could be a big one in an attempt to uncover the mystery of UFOs.
Pope believes 2022 will be crucial for the ufology movement as he has said: “You can either just sit back and let things happen, in which case you either lose the initiative, or you really do. can embrace what happened last year.
“After moving from the fringes to the mainstream, we need to continue to pose the conundrums that drive government reckoning, while driving more initiatives and disclosures.”
