US intelligence officials can't explain what dozens of mysterious recent UFO sightings are – but they do not show evidence of alien spacecraft, a bombshell Pentagon report will allegedly say.
Officials who have worked closely with the report confirm the vast majority of the 120 sightings made by US Navy personnel over the past two decades were not American military or other government technology, the New York Times reported on Thursday.

Those findings – due to be presented publicly to Congress later this month – eliminate the possibility that the Navy pilots may have seen some form of secret government aircraft, the Times said.
However, what the sightings are will reportedly remain a mystery.
Senior officials briefed on the findings said that because the report is inconclusive, the government could not definitively rule out the alien spacecraft theories.
An unclassified version of the findings is set to be released to Congress by June 25.
There has been a renewed interest in UFOs across the US in anticipation of the release of the Pentagon report.
On Thursday, Florida Sen Marco Rubio said that the government report should only be the beginning of the US effort to look into mysterious flying objects.
"Men and women we have entrusted with the defense of our country are reporting encounters with unidentified aircraft with superior capabilities," Rubio said in a statement.
"We cannot allow the stigma of UFOs to keep us from seriously investigating this. The forthcoming report is one step in that process, but it will not be the last."
Former President Barack Obama also added fuel to the fire when he spoke about UFOs on The Late Late Show With James Corden last month.
"What is true, and I’m actually being serious here, is that there is footage and records of objects in the skies that we don’t know exactly what they are," Obama said.
Over recent months, several clips of classified Navy footage have been released that shows these mysterious flying objects hovering around military ships.
Most recently, footage emerged that showed a UFO buzzing around a US stealth ship near San Diego before diving into the water in July 2019.
The report apparently acknowledges that much of the strange behavior of the unidentified phenomena — including how fast the crafts can move and change direction — remains inexplicable.
Many of the more than 120 incidents examined for the investigation were reported by Navy personnel.
Retired US Navy Chief Master-at-Arms, Sean Cahil, recently warned that the UFOs spotted likely possess technology that the US could not defend itself against.
"The technology that we witnessed with the Tic-Tac was something we would not have been able to defend our forces against at the time," he told CNN.
"What we saw in the Tic-Tac […] is the five observables. [These] indicate a technology that outstrips our arsenal by at least 100 to 1000 years at the moment."
The now infamous "Tic Tac" sightings was one of three videos taken by Navy pilots and released by the Pentagon last year.
Officials reportedly believe at least some of the unidentified phenomena could be experimental tech from a rival power like Russia or China.
