For many years it was considered a career ender to report these unexplained encounters so many military personnel downplayed them but now the U.S. Navy is updating their reporting protocol for pilots and other witnesses who encounter U̳F̳O̳s.
Politico revealed that the U.S. Navy is drafting new guidelines for pilots and other personnel to report encounters with unidentified aircraft which is a significant new step in creating a formal process to collect and analyze the unexplained sightings.
Right now, we have situation in which U̳F̳O̳s and UAPs are treated as anomalies to be ignored rather than anomalies to be explored the Navy said in a statement in response to questions from Politico.
The Navy isn’t endorsing the idea that its sailors have encountered a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ spacecraft. But it is acknowledging there have been enough strange aerial sightings by credible and highly trained military personnel that they need to be recorded in the official record and studied.
