  • During an appearance Monday night on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Obama was asked if he had a theory on what the unidentified objects could be.
  • “There’s footage and records of objects in the skies that we don’t know exactly what they are,” Obama said.
  • “We can’t explain how they moved, their trajectory. They did not have an easily explainable pattern,” he said.

“When it comes to aliens, there are some things I just can’t tell you on air,” Obama joked before answering the question. 

“But what is true — and I’m actually being serious here — is that there’s footage and records of objects in the skies that we don’t know exactly what they are,” Obama said. 

“We can’t explain how they moved, their trajectory. They did not have an easily explainable pattern,” he said. 

“So I think that people still take seriously trying to investigate and figure out what that is. But I have nothing to report to you today,” he added.

The former president’s comments come as the Pentagon has recently confirmed several videos showing Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) are real and were recorded by the U.S. military. 

A video released this week shows a spherical object off the coast of San Diego in 2019 flying above the water for several minutes before disappearing into the ocean. 

A "60 Minutes" report that aired this week also included interviews with several former Navy pilots who described encounters with UAPs. 

The U.S. government is expected to release a report on UFO sightings to Congress in June.
