The image from video provided by the Department of Defense labelled Gimbal, from 2015, an unexplained object is seen at center as it is tracked as it soars high along the clouds, traveling against the wind.

UFO investigators are moving their headquarters to Cincinnati. The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), which describes itself as the world's oldest and largest civilian UFO investigation and research organization, has nearly 600 investigators across the nation and the globe. The move from Irvine, California, to Cincinnati comes at an exciting time for those looking to the skies.

A government report on unexplained aerial phenomena, or UPA, is due to be provided to Congress as soon as this month. Members of the House Intelligence Committee received a classified briefing on UAPs by the Navy and the FBI Wednesday. The New York Times reported earlier this month that American intelligence officials have found no proof of extraterrestrial activity in the aerial phenomena witnessed by Navy pilots, but they still cannot provide a definitive explanation for these strange objects in the sky.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss UAPs and the Mutual UFO Network are MUFON Executive Director David MacDonald; and University of Cincinnati College of Engineering and Applied Science Assistant Professor Daniel Cuppoletti, Ph.D.
