The US Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, a secret £16.5million (US$22 million) investigation to study unidentified flying objects, was first made public on 2017.
Now, documents leaked by the BAASS (Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies) revealed the programme also ran a top secret investigation at the highly controversial Skinwalker ranch.
A BAASS manager told the Daily Star Online: “The investigations by BAASS provided new lines of evidence showing that the UFO phenomenon was a lot more than nuts and bolts machines that interacted with military aircraft.
“The phenomenon also involved a whole panoply of diverse activity that included bizarre creatures, poltergeist activity, invisible entities, orbs of light, animal and human injuries and much more.”
Speaking about the undercover investigation, Jeremy Corbell of Extraordinary Beliefs, told Daily Star Online: “The Pentagon’s other and larger investigation delved into mysteries far more profound – far more disturbing – than alleged alien aircrafts.
“Its focus was a living laboratory and paranormal hotspot known as Skinwalker Ranch.”
George Knapp, an American investigative journalist, revealed the secret document to the New York Times last year but was disappointed and claimed they left out vital information.
Along with Mr Corbell, he has produced an exclusive documentary – named ‘Hunt for the Skinwalker’ – recounting a series of his own investigations at Skinwalker ranch.
Mr Knapp told the Daily Star Online: “Skinwalker Ranch is like a paranormal Disneyland. If it’s weird, it happens on and around the ranch.
“Bizarre events and encounters have plagued the locals in the surrounding Uintah Basin for hundreds if not thousands of years.
“Sightings include orbs, UFOs, animal mutilations, unknown creatures, poltergeist-type activity, and many other inexplicable incidents.
“An exhaustive, multidisciplinary scientific study began in 1996, spearheaded by an enigmatic Las Vegas billionaire.
“A team of PhD-level investigators was deployed to collect evidence and spent more than a decade on the ground, interviewing witnesses, searching for explanations, and directly confronting an unknown intelligence.”
