President Barack Obama was a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden this week where he was asked about aliens and UFO sightings over the last few years. While he admitted that there's a lot of information on the matter that is classified and cannot be shared, he did confirm that the UFO spottings have been legitimate. 

"When it comes to aliens, there are some things I just can't tell you on air," explained President Obama. He went on to joke around a bit before getting to the serious business. "But what is true, and I'm actually being serious here, is that there is footage and records of objects in the skies that we don't know exactly what they are. We can't explain how they moved their trajectory-- they did not have an easily explainable pattern. I think that people still take seriously trying to investigate and figure out what that is but I have nothing to report to you today."
