UFO Sighting Unable To Be Explained By FAA

UFO sightings are becoming a near-weekly occurrence at this point. We are getting these things popping up seemingly all over the place with reports coming from all corners of the world coming in. Unidentified flying objects all over the skies. Let’s be honest though, most are likely some combination of folks being bored and some random tricks with lightning in the sky. But one of the sightings appeared to be a little more valid and just a little more mysterious. Because now the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is officially saying they can’t explain what a pilot saw in the skies over New Mexico two weeks ago. 

The UFO incident in question was probably never supposed to be brought to wider attention considering the sighting was initially reported from an American Airlines pilot flying over New Mexico. But the call from the plane to ground control was intercepted and recorded by blogger Steve Douglass who monitors these channels. On one of the transmissions he heard the pilot say the following:

“Do you have any targets up here? We just had something go right over the top of us…I hate to say this but it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing moving really fast right over the top of us”


When questioned about the UFO incident and investigating what could have been up in the skies at the time the pilot rang in with the sighting, the FAA had nothing. According to their records, there were no other scheduled flights in the area and nothing had shown up on their radar that could have explained what the pilot saw. In this way, the long cylindrical object is truly unidentified. 

This all begs the question from our logical brains, what could be the object that shot over this plane high in the New Mexican skies if not a UFO? Could it be an alien space craft giving the old buzz-by when it comes to some other planes up the sky? Maybe. Or maybe it was the government testing some new technology that came just a little close to an actual flight. Both sound plausible if not probable. Maybe the truth is somewhere in between, though that leaves a lot of gray area around what exactly those pilots were witnessing up in the air.

These last couple of years have really seen things ramp up on the UFO front. During the pandemic, sightings increased dramatically across the United States. That could have been the byproduct of some boredom and/or paranoia on the part of residents here. Or it could have been because the reporting has been more upfront and in the public eye of late. And the state of Idaho is the leader in the clubhouse for UFO sightings over the last couple of years.

The most recent UFO sighting above New Mexico might have been the real thing. The FAA can't explain the object seen in the sky

This comes on the heels of the government beginning to release more documentation and “proof” over the years of possible encounters. Some feel the United States government has proof they’ve recovered and tested UFO debris already.  More could come this year as well with part of January’s Covid-relief bill having (for some reason) a provision that requires the government to release everything it has about possible encounters. So maybe the pandemic and UFOs are linked in more ways than just sightings. 

Whether this latest incident over New Mexico was an actual UFO encounter might never been known. But what’s nearly certain is that it isn’t the last we’ll hear about these buggers. The alien talk seems to only be heating up.
