This hour, On Point: The fascination with Unidentified Flying Objects.

It was a "white object, oblong, pointing north, moving erratically", he told CNN's Jim Sciutto on Tuesday evening.

"I've done something that no one has done before".

The object in question had no wings. "It would hit and go the other way".

Speaking live with Sciutto, the former naval pilot said the aircraft had "the ability to hover over the water, and then start a vertical climb, from basically zero up towards about 12,000 feet, and then accelerate in less than two seconds, and disappear".

HollywoodLifers, do you believe in UFOs?

"For almost the next decade, I ran sensitive aerospace identification program focusing on unidentified aerial technologies, it was in this position that I learned the phenomena is indeed real", says Luis Elizondo, To The Stars Academy. And, as we saw, the former congressional staffer noted that the possibility that some UFO sightings (particularly those tracked by Navy jets in the USS Princeton aerial object incident) may have been attributed to a foreign power having developed advanced technologies that could threaten the United States.

According to a report in the paper Saturday, the once completely classified project that began because of the intense interest in the subject by former Sen. The company looks into UFO and government secrecy issues.

However, according to the Times, certain aspects of the program still exist with officials from the program continuing to investigate encounters brought to them by service members, in addition to carrying out their other duties within the Defense Department.

A defnse official told CNN the program cost at least $22 million over five years, before it was shut down in 2012.

But the Pentagon confirmed that audio and video of two US Navy pilots chasing an unidentified flying object near San Diego was investigated as part of the program.

"My personal belief is that there is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone", he told CNN.

The story draws on statements from Luis Elizondo, the military intelligence official who headed the program and resigned from the Department of Defense in October, reportedly in protest due to the UFO effort receiving little attention or funding.

He said hat he could not speak on behalf of the government, but he strongly implied there was evidence that stopped him from ruling out the possibility that alien aircraft visited Earth.

"I will tell you unequivocally that through the observations, scientific methodologies that were applied, that these aircrafts-we'll call them aircrafts-are displaying characteristics that are not now in the USA inventory nor in any foreign inventory we are aware of", Elizondo said Monday. The reports claim that The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program, as it was known, was formed to investigate objects seen by pilots and other military personnel that were far more advanced than any nation on this planet has the capability to create.

"A lot of the time, when we don't have a lot of information, we tend to fill in those gaps with whatever we think is logical".
