Department of Defense admits to running multi-million dollar UFO program”

According to The New York Times, Reid first found the resolve to set up the UFO watch following a conversation with his friend, real estate billionaire Robert Bigelow-who also has significant aerospace interests, and who, according to a piece by Sixty Minutes, is hard at work designing the spaceship of the future.

"I think it's one of the good things I did in my congressional service". It began in some form in 2007, according to The Washington Post and The New York Times, and officially ended in 2012, though may still be in existence in some capacity, the Times says.

Over the course of at least three years, the Pentagon spent more than $20 million on its Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program-a secret UFO research initiative.

Documents from the programme describe sightings of aircraft moving at very high velocities with no visible signs of propulsion, or that hovered with no apparent means of lift.

The UFO program was a pet project of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.

.

Still, Elizondo said he continued to work toward the program's aims in conjunction with the Navy and Central Intelligence Agency until he resigned in October, citing secrecy and lack of cooperation as the primary reasons for his departure.

"I left to find an environment where investigating these phenomena is priority number one", he said. Reid earmarked most of the money for the program to Bigelow, who, through his company Bigelow Aerospace, used it to study material said to have come from "unidentified aerial phenomena", interview people who claimed physical after-effects from their encounters with UFOs, and talk to members of the military about their close encounters.

If there's one thing ex-Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge is known for, it's his tendency to make conflicting reports about whether he's going to return to the band, and his penchant for researching aliens.

UFOs have been repeatedly investigated over the decades in the United States, including by the military.

The video, filmed by a Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet scrambled from the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz, shows an encounter between the plane and an unknown object which is about the size of a commercial plane.

In an earlier effort, the Air Force earlier studied UFO sightings between 1947 and 1969 mainly as part of the Project Blue Book program. In audio and video, the pilot is heard to exclaim: "There's a whole fleet of them". Defense officials declined to release the location and date of the incident.

The Defense Department didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Elizondo was clearly a fan of AATIP too, and hasn't given up on UFO research.
