James Oberg, a former NASA employee who subsequently became a space writer and historian, is curious about why so many people believe in UFOs.

He was especially taken by footage of strange lights that were circulating on the internet, with some believing they were from extra-terrestrial sources. He studied them for decades.

Being an employee of the United States’ premier space agency has its rewards, and at times, it may provide access to the world’s most contentious secret.
As was the case with this former NASA employee who just revealed the truth about UFOs based on inside knowledge from his tenure at the organization. However, this is not what conspiracy theorists anticipate.

Oberg worked for NASA in the 1990s and afterwards developed a hobby, which accounts for every UFO report.

He often appears on UFO sighting websites, claiming that the footage included “space dandruff,” not UFOs.

Space dandruff may be created by explosions, such as the one that occurred aboard NASA’s STS-75 in 1996. A satellite’s link snapped, creating a cloud of ice crystals to float about.

Many witnesses originally mistook the lights in the sky for UFOs. That concludes one account of a UFO sighting.

Oberg spent an inordinate amount of time examining data from UFO encounters and cross-referencing it with mission records in an attempt to explain each video sighting he saw.

Because of his perseverance and after decades of doing this, he finally came up with a finding that the human senses are trained to identify slow-moving objects and a specific or pre-calculated speed and conditions and when presented with a different set of setting, confusions follow.

“Our sensory system is functioning absolutely perfectly for Earth conditions,” says James Oberg, former NASA employee in an interview with Atlas Obscura. 

“But we’re still a local civilization. Moving beyond our neighborhood has been visually confusing,” Oberg added.

He also doesn’t believe that the agency is hiding the truth about UFOs to believers and conspiracy theorists. According to Oberg, it is just a result of watching too much sci-fi movies.
“I’ve had enough experience with real spaceflight to realise that what’s being seen in many videos is nothing beyond the ‘norm’ from fully mundane phenomena occurring in unearthly settings,” said Oberg in a statement.

But believers shouldn’t hate on Oberg, unlike other debunkers, he is more concerned about possibly explaining UFO sightings and why people react to it the way they do, not just in disproving every UFO sighting captured on video.
