Everything that happened with UFOs in 2019
I would say every year since 1947 – when an alien spaceship allegedly crashed in Roswell, New Mexico – has been a big year for aliens, but 2019 has been one of the biggest, at least in our modern age. The last time I remember aliens being talked about so much was in 2006, the year of the UFO sighting at O’Hare airport, and before that, 1997, the year of the Phoenix lights, when it looked like there was a huge triangle shaped spaceship lying around in the desert. While there haven’t been any major and widely discussed UFO sightings this year (I certainly hope 2020 is better in this regard), 2019 did see a number of notable events nonetheless. extraterrestrial life. Here, a look at what the aliens were doing this year.
january to march
The aliens were pretty calm in the first trimester. Hmmâ¦ is it time to get ready?
April: Navy announces new UFO reporting process
A quiet start to the year, for extraterrestrials, until April 23, when Politics reported that the US Navy was drafting new guidelines for pilots to report encounters with “unidentified planes,” in an effort to formalize and de-stigmatize the process for personnel. Stopping just before asserting its belief that such encounters are extraterrestrial in nature, the Navy Recount Politics: âThere have been a number of reports of unauthorized and / or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated airspace in recent years. “
That the Times posts story about Navy pilots’ UFO encounters
This day has been enormous: A Times story on Navy pilots’ encounters with unexplained foreign objects included many delightful and frightening descriptions: strange objects like “a spinning top” with no “visible engine or infrared exhaust plume” reaching “hypersonic speed.” Despite the repeated refrain that the Navy was not saying these objects were alien, they sounded (and looked! There was a video!) pretty creepy aliens. Still, the story came out on Memorial Day weekend, so most people didn’t really care. For those who have found themselves newly obsessed with UFOs, I have come up with a reading list.
June: Lawmakers briefed on UFO report
In June, Intelligence reported that several members of Congress were aware of the aforementioned Navy report of the military âfrequently seeing Tic Tac-like UFOs flying off the southeast coast of the United States between 2014 and 2015â. A former government official is said to have said that requests to see the report are “coming out of the woods”, which makes sense to me, as I would also die to see the full and uncensored report, as well as all other government UFO reports. that I have know is over there.
July: Teens make plan to storm Area 51
More than 400,000 people responded affirmatively to a Facebook event titled “Storm Area 51” scheduled for Friday, September 20, 2019, just outside the infamous Air Force base in Nevada. The impeccable logic of the organizers was that “they [the government] cannot stop us all â, adding thatâ if we Naruto run, we can go faster than their bullets. For anyone like me who feared ufology would die out with the generation of people who experienced the Roswell incident as it happened, this event came as a moving reminder that the plot of Area 51 is ageless and timeless. (It’s also not the only, or even the coolest, secret government base with an alien reputation.)
It was also the month when my colleague Madeleine Aggeler wondered: What if the aliens were hot?
August: Bernie Sanders vows to reveal UFO evidence if elected
During an appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast (okay!), The Democratic presidential candidate told Rogan that his wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders, would demand that he makes public the government records on UFOs if he is elected. It is also my most pressing request to the next elected president.
September: “Storm Area 51” event canceled and two YouTubers arrested for trying to break in anyway
After the overwhelmed organizers of Storm Area 51 ” canceled their event (having briefly converted it to a music festival), citing “a possible humanitarian disaster”, two Dutch YouTubers who had probably planned to attend the event (although they later denied this) decided that since they were there, they might as well give it a try. Men did it three thousand in Area 51 before being arrested, although they posted their intentions on Instagram long before they realized them. The couple spent three days in the county jail and paid fines of $ 2,280 each.
October: Strange Oregon cow mutilations reported (alien links possible)
At the beginning of the month, NPR reported that over the summer, five breeding bulls were mysteriously killed on an Oregon ranch. Specifically, they were found “with every drop of blood sucked from their bodies, and with their tongues and genitals surgically removed.” Harney County Sheriff’s Deputy Dan Jenkins told NPR he ruled out the deaths of other wildlife and noted that the bulls had not been slaughtered. “A lot of people are leaning towards aliens“He told NPR.” A caller told us to basically look for depression under the carcass. Because he said the alien ships will kind of teleport the cow and do whatever they want. They’re going to do some. Then they drop them from a great height. That seems most plausible to me!
Twenty-nine was the year famous ufologist and former Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge got it right about UFOs. This fall, the current Navy admitted that three videos previously shared by DeLonge’s UFO research organization, At the Stars Academy of Arts & Science, indeed depicts unidentified phenomena. What could 2020 do to top it off? I can’t wait to find out.
