On Wednesday this week (July 26, 2023), a U.S. House panel held its first-of-its-kind public hearing on extraterrestrials and UFOs. Congressmen have avoided discussing UFOs and aliens for decades. The world feels closer than ever to finding out whether we are alone in the universe after a series of disclosures in recent months, with Republicans and Democrats seemingly lining up to inquire into the topic of extraterrestrial life. During the UFO hearing, former military officials made a number of strange claims about unidentified flying objects while under oath.
The UFO hearing on Wednesday was a significant step forward in the public discussion of UFOs. It was the first time that a congressional panel had held a public UFO hearing in more than 50 years. The UFO hearing also raised awareness of the issue and helped to legitimize the study of UFOs.
Panelist Of The UFO Hearing
David Grusch, a former Air Force intelligence officer who claimed that the government has been concealing a program that retrieves and reverse engineers unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs).

Eye-Opening Moments From The UFO Hearing
The first-ever public UFO hearing was a historic event, and it was filled with eye-opening moments. Former government officials shared stunning testimony about what they had seen or experienced, and the panelists called for more transparency and accountability from the government. The UFO hearing was a significant step forward in the public discussion of UFOs, and it is likely to lead to more research and investigation into these mysterious objects.
Government Has Acquired UAPs
Former U.S. intelligence official David Grusch testified before a congressional panel on Wednesday that he is “absolutely sure” that the government is in possession of UFOs. Grusch, who said he was in charge of the Defense Department’s attempts to look into reported UFO sightings, told the panel that he has interviewed 40 witnesses over a four-year period who have corroborated his claims.
Grusch also said that he knew about a “multidecade” program at the Pentagon that tried to find and rebuild crashed UFOs. He told the panel that the program was funded by misappropriating funds from other government programs.
Rep. Jared Moskowitz, D-Fla., asked Grusch how he could be sure that the government is in possession of UFOs. Grusch responded that he had seen classified documents that confirmed the government’s possession of UFOs. He also said that he had spoken to officials who were involved in the program.
When Moskowitz asked Grusch to elaborate on how the program was funded, Grusch said, “Yes, I have specific knowledge of that.” However, he declined to provide further details, citing the classified nature of the information.
Grusch’s testimony is the latest in a series of events that have raised public interest in UFOs. In 2021, the Pentagon released three videos that showed unidentified objects flying at high speeds and performing maneuvers that were not possible with known aircraft. The release of the videos led to increased calls for the government to be more transparent about its knowledge of UFOs.
Nonhuman Biologics Recovered From UFO Crash Sites
David Grusch testified before a congressional panel that he has knowledge of “non-human biologics” recovered from crashed UAPs. Grusch said that he has interviewed witnesses who have corroborated his claims, but he could not provide specific details because the information was classified.
Grusch said that he would rather say “non-human” than “alien” or “extraterrestrial” because he does not want to make any assumptions about the origins of the biologic material. He said that he and his wife saw something “very disturbing,” and he believes that it may have been related to the UAPs.
Rep. Eric Burlison, R-Mo., asked Grusch to elaborate on his claim to which Grusch replied that he could not provide any further details because the information was too sensitive. However, he said that he was “very careful” about what he said and that he did not want to “mislead” the committee.
Establishment Of Safe & Transparent Reporting System
Some legislators and witnesses urged the federal government to set up transparent channels for disseminating UAP information to the public and the military, and military officials suggested setting up a systematic method for reporting sightings of unknown objects.
At the UFO hearing, Ryan Graves said that military pilots are not given adequate training on how to respond to UAP. Therefore, pilots who have encountered UAPs report feeling unsafe and unprepared to deal with the situation. The ex-Navy pilot stated that commercial pilots have also reported seeing UAPs.
There has to be a safe and transparent reporting process for pilots both on the commercial side and the military side to be able to report UAPs.Robert Garcia (D-CA)
Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., supported the call for greater openness. She mentioned that the director of the Pentagon’s All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office, Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, had testified to Congress that there was “no credible” proof of extraterrestrial life.
When Grusch disputed Kirkpatrick’s allegation, Foxx remarked, “contradiction is a perfect example of why we need to inject transparency into our government.”
The current process is not working. We need a new system that is transparent and accountable.Ryan Graves
Harassment Faced By UFO Whistleblowers
The stigma of reporting UFO sightings and the alleged mistreatment of those who work to study them were also discussed at the hearing by some witnesses and legislators. Ryan Graves told the panel that the stigma “silences” pilots who are afraid of “professional repercussions.”
He also said that “recent government claims that question the credibility of eyewitness testimony” make the problem worse. There is no official channel for pilots to report UAP sightings to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA); instead, they are sent to civilian groups that are often viewed as the territory of cranks and conspiracy theorists.
Because of these systemic barriers, Graves founded a groundbreaking organization that promotes policy reform, acts as a safe haven for pilots who wish to come out as whistleblowers, and calls for increased transparency on the part of the military and other government organizations. Legislators expressed optimism that the UFO hearing will encourage more pilots to come out with their concerns.
This hearing will not be the end of this discussion, but a new chapter and start. We should encourage more reporting, and more study of UAPs. The more we understand, the safer we are.Robert Garcia (D-CA)
UFO Spotted Accelerating At Supersonic Speeds
During the UFO hearing, David Fravor described his encounter with a Tic-Tac-shaped (UAP) in 2004. Fravor, a former Navy pilot, was flying over the Pacific Ocean with three other military personnel when they encountered the UAP hovering just under their jets. Fravor said that he was curious about the object, so he descended to get a closer look.
The UAP was roughly 40 feet long and had no visible propellers, motors, or wings. It was also completely silent. Fravor said that the object accelerated and ascended towards his jet, and then it vanished. A few moments later, the UAP reappeared 60 miles away. Fravor said that the object’s movements defied all of his understanding of physics, and that he had never seen anything like it before. Fravor’s testimony has been corroborated by other pilots who have seen similar UAPs.
The technology that we faced is far superior to anything that we had and there’s nothing we can do about it, nothing.David Fravor
Conclusion Of UFO Hearing
The first-ever public UFO hearing was a significant step forward in the public discussion of these mysterious objects. The hearing was marked by eye-opening testimony from former government officials, who made stunning claims about what they had seen or experienced. The panelists and committee were optimistic that this was not the only UFO hearing, and that there would be more hearings in the near future. They also expressed hope that we would soon learn more about UFOs and their origins.
There was no definitive conclusion reached at the UFO hearing held on Wednesday, July 26, 2023. However, the UFO hearing did provide some important insights into the government’s knowledge and understanding of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs).
The witnesses who testified at the UFO hearing, including former Navy pilots David Fravor and Ryan Graves, described a number of UAP encounters that they had experienced. These encounters were often characterized by strange and unexplained movements, such as the ability to accelerate and change direction instantaneously. The witnesses also said that the UAPs they saw appeared to be made of advanced materials that were unlike anything they had ever seen before.
The government officials who testified at the UFO hearing, including Scott Bray, the deputy director of naval intelligence, said that the government is still trying to understand what UAPs are and where they come from. However, they said that the government is taking the UAP phenomenon seriously and is committed to investigating it further.
The UFO hearing concluded with a call for more transparency from the government about UAPs. The lawmakers who held the hearing said that they want the government to release more information about the UAP sightings that it has investigated, and they want the government to create a more open and transparent process for reporting UAP sightings.
