If UFOs are aliens, Obama hopes humanity would find ‘common’ ground.

WATCH: There is a change in the air over how unidentified flying objects - or as the Pentagon calls them, unidentified aerial phenomena - are being treated. As David Akin explains, the U.S. military is now taking UFOs seriously, and sightings of these mysterious things are becoming more common – May 18, 2021

The unclassified report on UFOs is expected to be delivered in Congress sometime this month, although no specific date has been set.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio has described the report as an important step toward treating the topic more seriously, particularly in light of the potential threat that UFOs might pose.

Many theories have been floated to explain the strange phenomena, and there remains no proof that they are extraterrestrial in origin.

Although much of the UFO hype surrounds the United States, pilots have also been spotting them in Canadian airspace for years. Nevertheless, the Canadian government has said it does not have any dedicated task force for looking into the issue. As of this writing, Prime Minster Justin Trudeau has not spoken publicly about UFOs or the recently released footage.

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, former commander of the International Space Station, dismissed the hype around UFOs while addressing listener questions on CBC Radio earlier this week.

“Obviously I’ve seen countless things in the sky that I don’t understand,” Hadfield said. “But to see something in the sky that you don’t understand, and then to immediately conclude that it’s intelligent life from another solar system is the height of foolishness and lack of logic.”
