Look! Up In The Sky! UFOs Are Drawing New Attention
What was once the realm of overnight talk radio and "Unsolved Mysteries" has, in recent years, been receiving serious attention from The New York Times and, most recently, "60 Minutes."

The increased coverage is a prelude to a report the Pentagon is due to release in June about its knowledge of "unidentified aerial phenomena."
