A congressional hearing with Pentagon officials to discuss UFOs or “UAPs” (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) took place in Washington D.C. for the first time in decades today. Pentagon officials who were in attendance were hit with questions about UAPs and the growing concern that these unidentified flying objects could pose a threat to our national security. Most of the UFO reports discussed involved military aircraft encountering equipment issues as a result of a UAP encounter.

Officials discussed one video in particular that seemed to all but confirm that we’re dealing with something from out of this world. Why? Because no one could seem to provide a logical or concrete explanation for the video in question. A video that we know is real, from the government, and is using technology we haven’t dealt with before.

All these guys seem to be doing is downplaying what it is we’re seeing and almost dismissing the video because it’s “not enough.” Scott Bray, Deputy Director of Navy Intelligence, at one point says that the UAP/UFO in question could be “airborne clutter” or an “atmospheric phenomenon.” HUH?!

Now, I understand why the government is focused on the security threat that UAPs could pose but the entire congressional hearing felt like it left more questions than answers. There were several instances in the session where the officials couldn’t answer or explain certain UFO/UAP encounters like the infamous “Malmstrom Missile Incident” involving a “very large growing object” shutting down “six to eight missiles”. So, what in the world is going on? You can see the full congressional session below.

According to the National UFO Reporting Center, Idaho has had 13 UFO sightings reported just this year with 4 of those occurring last month. If anything, it feels as if the congressional hearing on UAPs (or UFOs, I can’t even figure out which to go with anymore!) reinforced the weirdness that has been going on in the skies of the Treasure Valley. Between the clueless answers given by the “experts” in the hearing and the striking evidence that’s in front of us, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that there is something extraterrestrial going on in our skies.

Let’s dive into some of the wildest UFO sightings in Idaho from April followed by the most bizarre cases in Idaho that will have you watching the skies.
