Is The Government Hiding Aliens From Us? 

Last updated on August 2, 2023

Are aliens real? Surprisingly, according to Knews’ poll, 57% of the US population believes so. What’s more is that most of the people that DO believe in aliens think that the US government is trying to cover them up. Yeah totally, aliens don’t exist and now go get on with your life. No! What’s so important that the government has to cover it up? Why is the US government so secretive?

One phenomenon was called The Phoenix Lights. On March 13th, 1997 in Phoenix, Arizona, a V-pattern was seen hovering above the city. After people began demanding an official explanation, the government acted like it didn’t even exist. One witness stated, “…it is like going to a football game and later you were told that you weren’t even there.” The government kept denying it until a couple of months later on July 25, when the US military offered up the theory that the lights had simply been flares fired off by the visiting Maryland National Guard conducting unit that had been doing practice-flying maneuvers in a project called “Operation Snowbird”. However, they also said that they were flying in a line. People also said that it looked like the lights came from the Northwest. If the guard had been flying in a perfect line, then why are the supposed flares that they dropped in a V shape? There had been many people investigating, and a specialist said that they did not have the shape of flares, nor the colors, nor the size. After years of requests for a reenactment, a dismal attempt was made by three Air National Guard Units to restage the Phoenix Lights by shooting off flares on March 7, 2000. To this day the phenomenon has not been successfully recreated.

Next up, in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, there was a supposed spaceship crash. The Air Force and military issued a report on the 1947 incident 50 years later, in 1997. However, in a survey from 1997, 31% of people said that they believed a spacecraft from another planet or galaxy had crashed in Roswell. In another survey, 64 percent of pollsters said that they didn’t believe an Air Force report that stated that “UFOs” were really just weather balloons and crash-test dummies. 25% said they believed the report, while 64% of people said that they didn’t. In a Fox News question with a different emphasis, 39% of registered voters said they thought the government was covering up the crash landing, 32% disagreed, and 29% were not sure. The following day after the Air Force had released the report, the Roswell Daily Record ran a story about the crash. However, the U.S. Army officials quickly reversed themselves on the “flying saucer” claim, stating that the found debris was actually from a weather balloon, releasing photographs of Major Marcel posing with pieces of the supposed weather balloon debris as proof.

In many surveys taken across the US, 14% of Americans stated that they believe that “we have already made contact with alien life, but (that) the government is covering it up.” In general, older Americans are more likely to believe that the government has top-secret info about UFOs. While 41% of 18 to 24-year-olds say they believe this to be true, almost two-thirds, or 64% of 45 to 54-year-olds say the same. In addition, another study concluded that  59% of men are more likely than the 50% of women to believe the government knows something about UFOs that isn’t being shared with the public. 
Even powerful politicians, it turns out, think there may be more to many saucer stories than what meets the public eye. The public doesn’t know what goes on inside Area 51, or even what the government is doing, and we probably won’t for decades to come. To think that there must be something truly incredible inside—that has the mouthfeel of truth.
