In response to mounting curiosity regarding the possibility of extraterrestrial encounters on Earth, Congress is set to conduct a hearing this week to explore the topic of ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’ (UAPs) or, commonly known as UFOs, though the latter term is discouraged. The House Oversight Committee has invited three witnesses to share their firsthand experiences with these mysterious aerial occurrences, shedding light on the matter.

    Among the witnesses called to testify are a retired Navy pilot and a former intelligence officer, both of whom claim to have encountered UAPs during their respective careers. The former intelligence officer has also made the remarkable assertion that the government is concealing evidence of an alien spacecraft.

    The Pentagon, however, maintains a publicly cautious stance on the matter. It declares that there is no verifiable information available to substantiate the claims of UFO sightings
