NEW footage of a UFO incident reportedly seen by more than 50 people has been released to the public.
On one night in April 2021, strange lights appeared in the sky over Twentynine Palms, California, about 150 miles west of Los Angeles.
UFO experts Jeremy Corbell and George Knapp discussed the footage on the most recent episode of their podcast Weaponized.
“This is what I would call a mass sighting,” Corbell said.
“It was more than 50 people that I personally know were staring up and looking at this object at one time.”
Many also managed to shoot footage and snap pictures of the incident, which lasted about 10 minutes.
Corbell added that the lights lined up in a neat V-shaped pattern, as is the case with many UFO sightings, and some who saw them could make out an aircraft, as well.
The object was reportedly about the size of half a football field, or even bigger.
The US Marines have a base in Twentynine Palms, so many of the people who saw the lights were enlisted at the time.
The military even reportedly shot up flares in an attempt to get a better view of what could have been an aircraft.
But now, Corbell claims the government is working to cover up the sighting.
“Two years ago, this thing happened and nothing has come out,” said Knapp. “There’s been no media coverage in two years since.”
“I got a tip from two bases at the time,” said Corbell, recalling the time he received a phone call from a person who was “high up.”
“But the tip was basically like ‘something happened and you should look into it. Click,'” he said.
Shortly after the lights were spotted, he claimed he got a brief, vague call from a high-ranking official at the base who encouraged Corbell to look into the situation.
The incident was similar to the Phoenix lights incident in 1997, where similar UFOs were spotted across the southwestern US over the course of about three hours, KPNX reported.
He’s hoping that more eyewitnesses will come forward and share their experiences now that the pair are talking about what they believe to be a UFO.
“There’s got to be more people with video and information of this and the base is not being forthcoming so that’s the idea. Let’s see who comes forward now,” he said.
