As technology becomes more advanced, we are slowly but surely coming closer to making contact with extraterrestrial life. The possibility that we are not alone in the universe has fascinated generations. In fact, aliens were even mentioned in the Bible!
Last year, Fox reported that UFO sightings were at an all-time high, with the majority of incidents occurring in the United States.
A report based on the National UFO Reporting Center’s statistics revealed there have been 104,947 reported sightings of aliens since 1905. In 2010, there had been 45,000 sightings – so our imaginations are either becoming more vivid, or something inexplicable is going on.
While there is no way of absolutely proving these incidents, in December 2017, NASA revealed that the Kepler telescope had discovered that there are 40 billion rocky, Earth-size exoplanets in the Milky Way alone. But even more excitingly, 11 million of them orbit sun-like stars.
Although the likelihood of us being alone in the universe has gotten even slimmer, only time will tell if and when we will make contact with extraterrestrial life. Some NASA scientists have estimated that if E.T. is out there, we will know within the next 20 years.
Now, incredible footage has emerged that has caused some people to speculate that we have already found extraterrestrial life!
The footage in question is of a large alien-like spider. It was posted to a Facebook group yesterday and quickly garnered more than 13,000 views.
