Unidentified Flying Objects, or UFOs as popularly called, have become an object of public discussion, with several countries going after the uncanny phenomenon. The latest to join the bandwagon is Ukraine, whose airspace has become host to UFOs in recent months.
Vice reported that an excessive number of UFOs are flying over Ukraine, citing a new preprint paper published by Kyiv’s Main Astronomical Observatory in coordination with the country’s National Academy of Science.
The paper is titled ‘Unidentified airborne phenomena I,’ based on the events observed using data from the Main Astronomical Observatory of the NAS in Kyiv and Vinarivka, a village south of Kyiv. According to the study’s authors, observatories started looking for UFOs due to the growing interest in the subject.
Not just that, a US House committee held an open congressional hearing on unidentified flying objects (UFOs) in May for the first time in about 50 years. It also released some videos while holding back many others for security reasons.
Besides the US, Russia also revealed that its scientists were investigating UFO sightings. In an interview with Russian Television, the head of the Russian space agency said that aliens are to blame for some of the UFO sightings with the rider and that the Russian Academy of Sciences was researching UFO sightings with nothing to do with aliens.
