Last month like many Americans, my husband and I were glued to our televisions as we watched coverage of unidentified flying objects showing up over our country and summarily getting shot down by our military. The first object, the famous Chinese spy balloon that took a meandering flight across our great country, kicked off the mix of fear and excitement when three more objects showed up shortly after that remained a bit of a mystery.
Whether you are a skeptic like me, who believed this was the beginning of the latest escalation of hostilities between our country and our adversaries, or a believer who thought first contact was on the horizon, it was a breathtaking month. However, government officials quickly quelled any worries or rumors that we had shot down little green men.
It seems we are safe…at least from having kicked off an intergalactic war which we would undoubtedly lose. But that has yet to stop the curiosity and desire from digging deeper into what or who could be…out there.

We need Jeff Goldblum
Independence Day was one of my favorite movies when I was a teenager. I know it’s cheesy and unrealistic, but fantastic at the same time.
How amazing to think that someone like Jeff Goldblum’s character would come up with the solution of giving the ‘mothership’ a computer virus, thus saving the entire world from alien annihilation? While the concept of a ‘mothership’ was laughable in the movie, it is now finding its way into Pentagon draft reports.

A report written by the director of the Pentagon’s All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, and chairman of Harvard University’s astronomy department Abraham Loeb poses the possible scenario that “An artificial interstellar object could potentially be a parent craft…”
Parent craft? It sounds like just a fancy way to say mothership.
The Pentagon’s AARO director and Harvard professor continue that this parent craft could release “many small probes during its close passage to Earth, an operational construct not too dissimilar from NASA missions.”
Before you start prepping your fallout bunker, it’s important to note that this is a draft report and a theory. It doesn’t certify that the Pentagon has found a mothership…or have they?
If the name Abraham Loeb sounds familiar, it should. I view Mr. Loeb as the rogue rock star of astronomy.
He’s made some waves in the community with various theories, including his search for alien life via the concept of ‘technosignatures.’ Keeping in mind that I’m not a Harvard scientist, the rudimentary explanation of a technosignature is the idea of alien space junk…sort of like our abandoned satellites or probes that are aimlessly floating around in space or left on planets like Mars.
The Pentagon report in question that he co-authored with Kirkpatrick is a draft dated March 7, 2023 titled, PHYSICAL CONSTRAINTS ON UNIDENTIFIED AERIAL PHENOMENA.
That draft report states, “With proper design, these tiny probes would reach the Earth or other solar system planets for exploration, as the parent craft passes by within a fraction of the Earth-Sun separation – just like ‘Oumuamua’ did.”
So what in the heck is ‘Oumuamua’?
Discovered in 2017, ‘Oumuamua,’ which in Hawaiian means ‘scout,’ was detected by astronomers. Its orbit and speed indicated that it might have come from outside our solar system.
“Las coincidencias entre algunos parámetros orbitales de ‘Oumuamua e IM2 nos inspiran a considerar la la posibilidad de que un objeto interestelar artificial sea potencialmente una nave nodriza que libere pequeñas sondas durante su paso cercano a la Tierra, una construcción… https://t.co/0nvYQNNloK pic.twitter.com/ERBTyEZwFX

Mr. Loeb argued that he believed Oumuamua was artificially made, more than likely a sort of technosignature piloted by artificial intelligence by an alien civilization. As I said, the rogue rock star of astronomy.
Think about that; this isn’t some citizen journalist, UFO enthusiast, or conspiracy theorist. This is a highly regarded Harvard University professor.
But what about those objects we shot down last month?
Recent UFOs just a distraction?
Last month the U.S. military shot down four objects; the Chinese spy balloon off the coast of South Carolina and three other objects over Alaska, Canada, and Michigan.
When speculation arose that the other three objects might’ve been extraterrestrial thanks to the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) Commander not “ruling it out,” the Biden administration was quick to diffuse any concerns that they had instigated a War of the Worlds.
“I don’t think the American people need to worry about aliens, with respect to these craft. Period.” said National Security Council spokesman John Kirby. So if they weren’t aliens, what were they?
President Joe Biden said, “The intelligence community’s current assessment is that these three objects were most likely balloons tied to private companies, recreation or research institutions, studying weather or conducting other scientific research.”
So we spent up to $2 million with sidewinder missiles that cost about $500,000 a pop to shoot down hobby balloons?
This statement is hard to believe if you don’t trust the government, which you probably shouldn’t.
The former head of the Pentagon’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force, Lue Elizondo, said of the objects, “What’s happening now is you have low-end technology being used to harass America.”
This is one of the primary reasons I resigned from the Pentagon in 2017; no one was paying attention. Thanks to new legislation, we are now better prepared to monitor our skies. Keep in mind, the more we look up, the more we are going to see.

I hope he’s right because if we are just this incompetent and trigger-happy, then we’ve got some serious issues that are much worse than what even I believed within the Department of Defense and the government.
Don’t give up hope
While the buzz over the UFOs we shot down last month has dissipated, our desire to research UFOs and alien life persists. A four-second video of what has been dubbed the ‘Mosul Orb’ released by investigative journalists Jeremy Corbell and George Knapp caught the attention of UFO enthusiasts and mainstream media.
The video from 2016 shows a metallic orb flying over the combat zone in Mosul. The importance of studying and removing the stigma over UFO research and reporting is perfectly described by Mr. Corbell, “As you know, we are shooting things down over the United States of America without really identifying them before we shoot them down.”
Besides the obvious alien disaster-style movie scenario, this sort of activity could also instigate crossfire between two countries leading to the destruction of a much more earthly nature.
With our government finally researching these phenomena and civilians leaping into space a la Elon Musk and Richard Branson, we all must start taking our skies a little more seriously.
Is there life out there? I sure hope so.
Have they visited us or studied us without our knowledge? I hope not.
Now is probably the worst time to study humanity if you are an alien civilization. After all, mom jeans are considered fashionable, and the man bun is still holding firm.
None of that bodes well if the Xenomorphs are watching.
