For centuries, reports of strange lights moving through the skies have been reported around the world. Beginning in the late 1940s, popular reports of sightings involving mysterious aerial lights and other phenomena have formed the basis of the modern UFO phenomenon. But could some of these aerial apparitions have a natural explanation?

This week, we examine a new science paper that argues many modern UAP sightings could represent manifestations of plasmas in space and in the atmosphere, which at times have been known to take on very odd, even life-like qualities. Could some of these curious electrical events be connected to the origins of alien life, or even life on Earth? We explore all these questions, as well as some of the latest happenings in the ongoing UAP controversy in America in this installment of The Micah Hanks Program.
