Pilots’ Accounts of UFO Raise Serious Questions

OPINION | This article contains the author's opinion.

A CNN interview went off the rails as a reporter explained that U.S. pilots were unable to identify a flying object near Alaska’s northern coast.

An F-35 fighter aircraft pilot who was sent to learn more about said the object “interfered with their sensors,” the source said.

ABC News reported that an unnamed U.S. official described the object as “cylindrical and silver-ish gray.”

Pilots were also baffled how it was moving at its altitude of 40,000 feet.

“When they looked at the object they could identify no identifiable propulsion system and they did not know how it was actually staying in the air,” CNN’s Natasha Bertrand said.

“[I]t wasn’t ‘flying’ with any sort of propulsion, so if that is ‘balloon-like’ well — we just don’t have enough at this point,” the official said.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said, :The military and the intelligence are focused like a laser on, first, gathering and accumulating the information, then coming up with a comprehensive analysis of what went on before, what’s going on now and what could go on in the future.”

National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said Friday that few details about the object’s purpose have been discerned, according to The Washington Post.

“We don’t know what entity owns this object,” Kirby said. “There’s no indication it’s from a nation or an institution or an individual.”

Legislators from Alaska have reacted angrily to the presence of multiple objects that have traveled over Alaska, according to The Washington Post.

“At what point do we say a … spy balloon coming from China is a threat to our sovereignty? It should be the moment it crosses the line. And that line is Alaska,” Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski said at a hearing on Thursday, the Post reported.
