A Scientist's Perspective on UFO Sighting Videos


UFO sighting videos have been surfacing since the days that video capture initially became possible, but to this day, we have yet to prove that aliens exist.

One particularly intriguing video clip released by the United States Department of Defense shows a Tic-Tac-shaped object moving against high-speed atmospheric winds and rotating simultaneously. The footage, captured from a Navy jet back in 2004, invoked heaps of curiosity.

Given just how little we know about what happened that day, it's challenging to pinpoint what exactly we're looking at in the footage. Most scientists agree that we lack sufficient data to draw accurate conclusions, and so it remains a mystery to this day.

In this video, you'll get to hear some expert opinions concerning why scientists don't get as excited about these kinds of UFO sighting videos as the general public does.
