The large portion of the Pentagon report, set to be declassified on June 1, has conspiracy theorists across the world sitting on the edge of their seats in anticipation, as the US military will finally lay bare their findings on all Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) – the official military term for UFOs. No government agency has been monitoring unidentified objects flying over the skies of Britain since the MoD’s UFO department was disbanded in 2009.

Speaking to the Telegraph about the potential findings of the US report, a defence source said: “I think that if there was enough evidence to suggest that there was something, and that we needed to do it as well as the US, then of course we’d think about it. We’d look at it.

“There’s all sorts of things that we wouldn’t rule out, and this would certainly be one of them.”

Hints of the department’s revival follow a former MoD insider’s belief that the Pentagon report will finally “give us some answers” on the phenomena.

Nick Pope, who investigated sightings for the Government in the 1990s said: “Whatever we are dealing with, there’s a realisation it’s a serious defence and national security issue.”

He added: “This report that’s going to Congress, is going to be a proper intelligence analysis of the phenomenon.

“There’s been some interesting leaks. Apparently, the idea that it’s aliens has not been discounted.”

Former US President Barack Obama recently told James Corden that the US has footage of UFOs which scientists and the military “can’t explain”.

Mr Obama said: “We don’t know exactly what they are.

“We can’t explain how they moved, their trajectory. They did not have an easily explainable pattern.”

The full Pentagon report will be sent to the US Congress in just a few short days and an unclassified version will be made available to the public.

US intelligence services have previously made clear that any UAP could represent actual threats and should be investigated.

Sue Gough, a Department of Defense spokesperson, said: “The Department of Defense takes reports of incursions into our airspace – by any aircraft, identified or unidentified – very seriously, and investigates each one.

“As we collect additional data, we expect to close the gap between identified and unidentified and avoid strategic surprise regarding adversary technology.”
