One scientist said, UFO's have pictographs embedded onto the surface of their Crafts Hulls along with script on the exterior. Another Scientist who used a Microscopic imager to enlarge images of UFO's said, UFO's show clear evidence of pictographs on the exterior Hulls similar to Military fighter Jets. U.S. Fighter Aircraft have squadron logo and pilots names along with tail numbers on their exterior.

A few Scientists who have studied the UFO phenomenon say they believe Earth is and has been visited by Aliens and the government cover continues.
