The military may soon keep track better of
what may or may not be happening in unexplainable events. A detailed means of
reporting strange events will be made available to Navy pilots who think they
may have spotted UFOs.
They said in a statement the Navy is
updating and formalizing the guidelines of reporting such unexplainable events
to the cognizant authorities.
The statement added that the steps for
reporting are in a draft.
A Navy official told CNN there had been
multiple reports of UFOs entering several military-controlled ranges and
designated air space in recent years.
The Navy does think these kinds of
incursions can be both poses a safety hazard and a security risk for both Air
Force aviation and Navy. The USAF and Navy investigate each and every report
and take these reports very seriously for safety and security concerns.
The navy official said the new policy would
give standard procedures of reporting such incidents.
Separately, a senior military official told
CNN that UFO sightings had garnered public attention, prompting them to brief
aviators and the Congress on the safety hazards.
