The US government is likely aware of the snake-like UFOs that have been spotted across the country and are monitoring them, a former police detective has revealed.
Over the past several months, people from all parts of the US have claimed to have captured bizarre objects in the skies on camera, which bear similarities to snakes in their movement.
The sightings started in June, when a popular YouTuber was shocked to discover a bright light above the Mojave Desert in California.
After the sightings exploded, Daily Star Online asked Detective Constable-turned UFO hunter Gary Heseltine his thoughts on the mysterious “craft”.
“Cigar-shaped UFOs have been seen for decades,” he told this site.
“Occasionally some reports involve ‘snake’ like objects.
“These sightings can be rare and have been seen around the world from time to time, particularly in South American countries like Mexico and Peru.”
Gary went on to claim the US military and government have “controlled the UFO field worldwide since the 1940s”.
“I certainly believe that the US government and military know much more about ET visitation,” he continued.
“I suspect that we only know 10% of the truth about UFOs and ET contact which means 90% is still in the secret world of military intelligence.
“Providing the sightings are numerous and have multiple witnesses, I have no doubt that someone in authority will be ‘silently’ monitoring the activity [of snake-like UFOs].”
Gary went on to say he has “met many people who were formerly military pilots” who have had had UFO encounters.
“There is no doubt in my mind that a small proportion of UFO reports involve ET visitation (3%),” he added.
Gary runs the Police Reporting UFO Sightings database, where he claims to have more than 500 reports of UFO sightings from police officers dating back to 1901.
He worked in the British Transport Police for 24 years before retiring in 2013 and now describes himself as the UK’s leading researcher UFO sightings.
