The number of reported UFO sightings is on the rise, and a new report from a former Marine is only adding to the intrigue.
His name is Michael Herrera, who served four years in the Marines. In April, he testified under oath to the government’s UFO investigation team, the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), as well as appearing before a Senate committee.
Herrera, who in 2009 was a 20-year-old rifleman sent on a Navy mission following the Sumatra earthquake and tsunami that ripped through Indonesia, has kept quiet for 14 years. Now, he’s talking.
The former Marine says he and five comrades saw a flying, octagonal-shaped saucer being loaded with weapons. When they were spotted, they were threatened at gunpoint by unmarked U.S. forces.
“I could see something moving and rotating. It was changing colors between a very light matte gray to a very dark matte black. It stuck out like a sore thumb.”
“The thing was massive, the size of a football field. The craft was rotating in a clockwise motion while changing colors. It had an audible hum to it, like the sound of a transformer or a guitar amp. It was an octagonal shape with a pyramid at the top of it that was black,” Herrera said.
“It had scales that were on the outside of the craft that covered the whole craft. It had seams and sharp edges which I suspect to be man-made. Nothing on it was smooth. It had some panels on the vertical edges that were like Vantablack,” a super-black color that absorbs light.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who has reportedly attended a classified UAP briefing on a military base in Florida on February 21, has also revealed a small bit of info he has received.
“I have seen evidence of craft that I am not familiar with any of our allies or adversaries or even our country possessing. I’ve seen that craft taken by air crews who have gotten quite close to it and we’ve got a lot more questions about why this information isn’t more broadly available to the American people,” Gaetz told Newsmax last week.
