Harvard Researchers Believe This Cigar-Shaped UFO May Be An Alien Craft



  • The Facts:Researchers at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics believe the odd cigar-shaped object discovered in our solar system last year could be an alien craft intentionally sent close to earth.
  • Reflect On:Given UFOs and ETs have become such a big topic of discussion, does this sound out there to you? Is it truly that tough to believe that other intelligent civilizations exist? Could this be more controlled, ‘drip disclosure’?

Remember that cigar-shaped object that entered our solar system last year that had researchers wondering what the heck it was? Well, they’ve been studying it for the last year and now have some interesting theories, including that it may be an alien spacecraft sent to examine Earth.

Perhaps far fetched if you’ve never been exposed to UFO research, but not at all far-fetched given much research, witness testimony and many whistleblowers have pointed to some ET crafts being cigar-shaped. It’s not uncommon.

Those who feel ideas like this are ‘weird and out there’ are simply not seeing the facts that have been around for decades. Thankfully, research like this helps to shift that perspective amongst the public, and opens us up to truths that have been waiting to be explored en mass for a very long time.


The object was first spotted by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii in October 2017. It was given the name “Oumuamua” by researchers as that represents a messenger from afar arriving first, or scouting, in Hawaiian. Some researchers believe the object is the first interstellar visitor to our solar system. A narrative we might expect if you are well up on the latest UFO research and understand that decades of coverup are now leading to a slow, controlled, drip disclosure.

The object appears to be about 400 metres long and 40 metres wide, it also appears to travel at a speed of more than 26 kilometres per second. It has been puzzling astronomers since it was first discovered.

In a new paper submitted to the Astrophysical Journal Letters, researchers at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics suggest the possibility the object is actually a “lightsail of artificial origin.” A lightsail is an artificial object, used to gather sunlight to power a spacecraft or something to that effect. It could also be a probe, according to authors of the paper.

“Oumuamua may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization.”

Although it has been called a comet or an asteroid on many occasions, it’s movement and speed do not resemble that of either according to researchers.

The object’s movement is not determined by the gravitational pull of the sun or planets, as is the case with asteroids. Scientists have also been unable to concretely identify it as a comet because it lacks a tail or “coma” around it.

Researchers believe it could be a light sail type object for a number of reasons including the fact that it’s extremely thin width would allow for it to survive interstellar travel over galactic distances and withstand collisions with gas and dust grains.


To researchers, it is still unclear whether Oumuamua is a light sail from a spacecraft or some other artificial object floating around in our solar system. But they do seem to be very clear on the fact that it is artificial.

“A survey for lightsails as technosignatures [scientific evidence of past or present technology] in the solar system is warranted, irrespective of whether Oumuamua is one of them,” the paper said.

Other Claims of Cigar-Shaped Craft

One of Canada’s most famous UFO incidents recalls a man named Stefan Michalak who on May 20, 1967, said he saw two cigar-shaped objects with a reddish glow hovering about 45 meters away.

Two American pilots saw on July 24, 1948, a cigar-shaped UFO over southwest Alabama. It was a summer morning at around 2.45 AM when pilots Clarence S. Chiles and co-pilot John B. Whitted flew in their twin-engine propeller plane the Eastern Air Lines DC-3. 5,000 feet high, with 20 passengers on board. During the flight, they witness a cigar-shaped UFO.

“It was clear there were no wings present, that it was powered by some jet or other type of power, shooting flame from the rear some 50 feet. There were two rows of windows, which indicated an upper and lower deck, [and] from inside these windows a very bright light was glowing. Underneath the ship there was a blue glow of light.”

This particular incident became highly classified and the report was later destroyed.

Finally, you can also explore the testimony of Corey Goode who alleges there are many types of cigar-shaped craft that have been used in secret space programs for quite some time.

The Takeaway

It is becoming increasingly interesting to observe the amount of mainstream ET and UFO talk that is coming to the surface. While it is usually not very deep, doesn’t cover what is already well knowing via declassified documents in the public domain, at least conversations are happening.
