There is no scientific issue that has sparked controversy in the American scientific and media circles like the topic of flying saucers or unknown weather phenomena, so what did NASA say about it?

Flying phenomena have long been a raw material for science fiction films, and for decades the Pentagon considered them a US national security secret until NASA decided to speak in the presence of a panel of 16 specialized scientists and with great caution about what it called unknown flying phenomena.

In a precedent for NASA, Washington last week witnessed the first public session held by a committee of physics and astronomy experts at the agency's headquarters to talk about the phenomenon, and to present the photos and testimonies collected by experts about flying saucers.

NASA experts found that between 2 and 5 percent of those observations "may be really abnormal," and among the examples the agency touched on was the metal spherical object that flew in the Middle East in 2022, which did not pose a threat to air safety.

The Observatory (2023/6/5) continued NASA's interest in the UFO phenomenon, with the long session deriving its importance as it publicly discussed an issue that has always been considered the secret and exclusive competence of military officials and intelligence services.

Many people talk about seeing UFOs flying in the sky, but the majority of those sightings come from U.S. Air Force pilots, but NASA scientists say that even highly trained individuals can misdetect unknown phenomena, sometimes just light reflections.

The NASA hearing did not confirm the existence of the phenomenon as much as it refuted countless claims and exaggerations, yet the speakers maintained a great deal of caution, in a scientific issue that has long occupied people and remained closer to mythology and a driver only for filmmakers and science fiction writers.
