Watch the First Public Congressional Hearing on UFOs in 50 Years Today Right Here

The big day has finally arrived for UFO hunters: Today, May 17, at 9 a.m. EST (1 p.m. UTC), an open House subcommittee will hold its first public hearing on UFOs in the United States in more than 50 years, and you can watch it all right here. While no tiny green guys should be expected to testify, a few fascinating tidbits of information may be released to the public. Here’s what to anticipate during this historic hearing.

The first half of the hearing will be live-streamed on YouTube for your watching enjoyment. You may see it live in the video below. The hearing was originally set for 10 a.m. EST, but it has subsequently been moved to 9 a.m. Following the open section of the hearing, the subcommittee will conduct a private and classified briefing beginning at 12 p.m. EST – meaning the public hearing may take up to three hours, with a short break in between sessions.

According to Politico, the session will be chaired by Congressman André Carson (D-Ind.) and will include testimony from two top defense intelligence officials: Ronald Moultrie, the Pentagon’s top intelligence official, and Scott Bray, the deputy director of naval intelligence. “Unidentified aerial phenomena have a lot to teach us.” But one thing is certain: the American people are entitled to complete openness.” Last Monday, House Intelligence Committee Chair Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) tweeted.

“Next week, @HouseIntel will give the public the opportunity to hear from experts on one of history’s biggest mysteries.” The hearing comes after Congress ordered a historic study on UAPs, which was released in June 2021. Overall, the study was inconclusive, but it did reveal that certain US authorities were beginning to take a more open attitude to the once-controversial subject of unexplained aerial phenomenon (UAP) sightings.

The session hasn’t been made public yet, but many expect it to detail some of the military’s interactions with UAPs and examine the threat they represent to national security. However, curious watchers aren’t anticipating much from the impending session. The hearing, according to UAP Media, will not deliver the “full disclosure” that many are looking for, with much of the juicy information being saved for the confidential briefing.

Nonetheless, the hearing’s open and transparent approach has been universally praised. Who knows, maybe a few fascinating bits of knowledge may fall through the gaps as well. “While this statement is a significant step forward, we do not foresee any major surprises at this time.” In a statement, Dave Partridge, editor of Shadows of Your Mind magazine and a member of UAP Media UK, stated, “We hope it spurs other national governments – such as the UK and Australia under their AUKUS information sharing cooperation – to follow suit and initiate open talks of their own.”

“Those working behind the scenes on the UAP proposal have worked for more than four years to deliver information to the correct individuals in Congress. What we’re witnessing today with Congressional Hearings is another step toward public acceptability,” said Adam Goldsack, one of UAP Media UK’s founders.
