When President Donald J. Trump signed the $2.3 trillion Coronavirus relief and Government funding bill into law during December of 2020, it began a 180-day countdown for U.S. intelligence agencies to tell Congress what they know about UFOs.

The National Intelligence Director and Secretary of Defense had less than six months to provide the congressional intelligence and armed services committees with ‘unclassified’ reports about UFOs in the air around America that have been spotted by its citizens.

It was added to the Intelligence Authorization Act for the Fiscal Year of 2021.



Inside the report, it must contain a large detail of an interagency process for ensuring timely data collection and centralized analysis of all unidentified aerial phenomena(s) in reporting for the Federal Government.

An official has to be designated and deemed as responsible for the process.

The report must further identify any potential national security threats posed by UFOs. An assessment will be made to determine whether the nation’s adversaries ‘could be’ behind the activity.

According to the committee, it will be released as an unclassified document to the public; however, some parts can be contained as a classified annex.
