UFO encounters investigated by U.S. government in secret study


UFO encounters have been part of popular culture lore since the 1947 Roswell incident. Recently it was revealed that our government conducted a study on witnesses of unidentified aerial phenomenon. Is this proof that extraterrestrials exist?

UFO lore has been a part of our culture since the 1947 incident at Roswell. Countless movies and television shows from Close Encounters of the Third Kind to The X-Files and now Project Blue Book prove that we are endlessly fascinated with the concept of life on other planets.

Apparently, so is our government. At the end of 2017, it came to light in a New York Times article that former Senator Harry Reid had commissioned a top secret project known as AATIP or the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. According to Metro News, the guise was for us to study “disruptive aerospace technologies.”

To anyone on the outside looking in, AATIP appeared to explore the possibility of other countries developing advanced weaponry. Some of the investigations delved into “quantum mechanics, nuclear science, electromagnetic theory, anti-gravity and thermodynamics.” What is interesting to note is that although nothing was mentioned regarding aliens, some of those topics have come up in correlation with space travel and alternate propulsion systems.

Close Encounters, Lasting Effects

This recent reveal also claimed that in addition to the above topics cloaking, warp drives, laser weapons and wormholes were also explored. However, in almost a bizarre footnote, AATIP also researched the biological effects of encountering a UFO.

Specifically, the focus of the study was on health issues that were the direct result of people having close encounters with unidentified aerial phenomenon (UAP) as well as the effects of so-called abductees or experiencers. One of the cases that came under scrutiny was the 1977 Colares Flap.

During that time, the denizens of this region in Brazil were experiencing a high volume of UFO sightings which is what a flap refers to. Some of the villagers were “attacked” by these craft with intense radiation beams. The result was that some individuals were left with physical wounds such as burn marks and punctures.

More from Aliens

Nick Pope, who ran the branch of the Ministry of Defense that investigated UFOs in the United Kingdom claims that Dr. Hal Putoff, a scientist who worked on the project confirmed that they did conduct those medical studies. Pope also stated that he had heard from sources that bloodwork and DNA samples were taken from witnesses to the 1980 Rendlesham Forest encounter.

For those of you unfamiliar with this particular event, several U.S. servicemen as well as local townsfolk near RAF Woodbridge and RAF Bentwaters Air Force bases in Suffolk witnessed a UFO that was hovering over the nuclear weapons arsenals.

Two days later, two Air Force officers encountered a craft in the woods with strange hieroglyphics on it. These sightings are considered to be Britain’s Roswell.

Proof of Extraterrestrial Life?

Does this mean that we aren’t alone? If we are being visited what are the intentions of our “guests”? Apparently, in Colares, the UFOs were in attack mode. Would we be able to learn from the AATIP study on how to protect ourselves?

If our government did expend the time, money and energy studying the biological effects of close encounters, do they acknowledge that extraterrestrials exist? Like Fox Mulder always says, “The truth is out there.” And maybe someday, it will be revealed.

Do you think the study is proof that our government knows ETs exist? Let us know in the comments. We want to hear from you.
