When US President Donald Trump signed the US$2.3 trillion (A$2.9 trillion) coronavirus relief and government funding bill into law in December, so began the 180-day countdown for US intelligence agencies to tell Congress what they know about UFOs.
The director of National Intelligence and the secretary of defence have a little less than six months now to provide the congressional intelligence and armed services committees with an unclassified report about "unidentified aerial phenomena."
It's a stipulation that was tucked into the "committee comment" section of the Intelligence Authorisation Act for Fiscal Year 2021, which was contained in the massive spending bill.
That report must contain detailed analyses of UFO data and intelligence collected by the Office of Naval Intelligence, the Unidentified Aerial
Phenomena Task Force and the FBI, according to the Senate intelligence committee's directive.
It should also describe in detail "an interagency process for ensuring timely data collection and centralised analysis of all unidentified aerial phenomena reporting for the Federal Government" and designate an official responsible for that process.
Finally, the report should identify any potential national security threats posed by UFOs and assess whether any of the nation's adversaries could be behind such activity, the committee said.
Putting this report release on the calendar, should be a good read.
