Nick Pope believes that a task force set up by the US government has shared findings with their British counterparts about possible UFO sightings.

Pope believes that the world will see a number of big news stories relating to UFOs in 2021.

He told The Metro newspaper: "There's a momentum building up and there's no smoke without fire. The clock is now ticking on the Senate Intelligence Committee's demand for a report on the UFO phenomenon from the Director of National Intelligence.

"A response is due within 180 days of the enactment of the COVID-19 relief bill, because this bill contained the Intelligence Authorization Act, where the UFO requirement was articulated.

"This report, important though it may be, is only one part of a wider process. There's a lot going on and we're going to see some big UFO stories in 2021."
