The US Navy has updated its process for UFO sightings, with a new process to report sightings of ‘unauthorised’ and ‘unidentified aircraft’.

It comes after reports of sightings near military air space – although (of course) this doesn’t actually mean the arrival of the little green men.

‘For safety and security concerns, the Navy and the U.S. Air Force takes these reports very seriously and investigates each and every report.

‘As part of this effort, the Navy is updating and formalizing the process by which reports of any such suspected incursions can be made to the cognizant authorities.

‘A new message to the fleet that will detail the steps for reporting is in draft.’
