PROMISED TO APPEAL TO THE U.S. SUPREME COURT.>>Shepard: CLAUDIA COWAN LIVE. THE U.S. NAVY IS PREPARING NEW GUIDELINES FOR PILOTS ON HOW TO REPORT SIGHTINGS OF UFOs. THE NAVY REPORTS THAT THERE’S BEEN STRANGE SIGHTINGS IN RECENT YEARS BUT NO CONFIRMED WITH ENCOUNTERS FROM SOMEBODY FROM ANOTHER PLACE. THE NAVY IS UPDATING ITS PROCESS SO INVESTIGATORS CAN LOOK INTO EACH INDIVIDUAL REPORT. JENNIFER GRIFFIN IS LIVE WITH MORE. HI, JEN.>>THE PENTAGON CLOSED THEIR OFFICE THAT DEALT WITH UFO SIGHTINGS IN 2012 WHEN CONGRESS STOPPED FUNDING IT. NOW AFTER A SERIES OF UNUSUAL ENCOUNTERS BY NAVY JETS LIKE THIS ONE IN 2017 SHOWING AN F-18 SUPER HORNET ENCOUNTERING A UFO, THE NAVY HAS TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO RECORD THE EVENTS IN CASE THEY’RE SOME KIND OF ADVANCED AIRCRAFT SENT BY THE RUSSIANS OR CHINESE TO SPY ON THE U.S. MILITARY. THE U.S. NAVY AND PENTAGON ARE TRYING TO DE-STIGMATIZING OF REPORTING UFOs. A NEW MESSAGE TO THE FLEET TO DETAIL REPORTING IS IN DRAFT AND RESPONSE FROM MEMBERS AS WELL AS AVIATORS THAT REPORTED HAZARDS TO SAFETY. FOR MANY YEARS IT WAS CONSIDERED A CAREER ENDER TO REPORT THE UNEXPLAINED ENCOUNTERS, SO MANY MILITARY PERSONNEL DOWN PLAYED THEM, SHEP.>>Shepard: IS THERE ANYTHING TO THE TIMING OF THIS?>>SINCE 2014, THERE’S BEEN AN INCREASING NUMBER OF ENCOUNTERS. MOST OF THEM ARE SUSPECTED DRONES. AFTER THE 2017 F-18 INCIDENT AND THE RELEASE OF THIS VIDEO SHOWING PILOT’S REACTION TO THE STRANGE AERIAL ENCOUNTER, THE PENTAGON WANTED TO STUDY THE RECENT PHENOMENAL AT THE URGING OF SEVERAL U.S. SENATORS THAT SET ASIDE $25 MILLION FOR THE NEW OFFICE. AMONG THE INCIDENTS, AN AERIAL INCURSION INVOLVING THE U.S.S. NIMITZ AND LASTED SEVERAL DAYS
