In a rather remarkable development, the United States Navy is updating their reporting protocol for pilots and other witnesses who encounter UFOs. The intriguing procedural change was revealed in a story broken by Politico on Wednesday evening. In a statement to the website, the Navy indicated that they have received "a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years."
Noting that they already investigate "each and every" incident in light of "safety and security concerns," the Navy explained that they are "updating and formalizing the process" for pilots and other personnel to report "suspected incursions" by unidentified craft. It is uncertain what these new guidelines will consist of, but the statement said that the Navy is currently drafting a "new message to the fleet that will detail the steps for reporting."
As one can imagine, the news is being seen by UFO enthusiasts and disclosure advocates as a significant turn of events in that the Navy is openly acknowledging that they have received reports of unidentified craft. They also appear to be encouraging pilots and other witnesses to officially share their accounts of encountering these mysterious intruders rather than keep quiet about what they saw for fear of damaging their reputation or career. Whether that proves to be the case, of course, remains to be seen, but it should hopefully lead to more reports of strange and unusual craft in our skies.
