Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe revealed Friday that an upcoming report will disclose that government officials have recorded more unidentified flying objects that are "difficult to explain."

Ratcliffe's remarks boost expectations for an upcoming government report about UFOs put into motion by the second pandemic-related stimulus bill.

The law, signed into law by former President Donald Trump last December, forced U.S. spy agencies and the Pentagon to disclose what they know about UFOs to the Senate Intelligence and Armed Services Committees within 180 days.

Speaking with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, Ratcliffe explained what the government report could disclose.

"There are a lot more sightings than have been made public. Some of those have been declassified," Ratcliffe said. "And when we talk about sightings, we are talking about objects that have seen by Navy or Air Force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery that, frankly, engage in actions that are difficult to explain. Movements that are hard to replicate that we don't have the technology for or traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom."

Ratcliffe added that government officials have attempted to find a "plausible solution" for the UFOs — but admitted "there are instances where we don't have good explanations for some of the things we've seen."
