AN EX-NUCLEAR weapons tech has claimed he saw UFOs flying overhead while serving in the military at a top secret US Air Force base.
Adrian Reister, 37, decided to break his silence as the unknown phenomena has become a serious national security concern for US lawmakers and the Pentagon.
Reister, originally from Texas, served at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri between 2003 and 2007 – which stores a wide variety of nuclear bombs.
Whiteman is the home of the B-2 Spirit Bomber – the US's leading strategic nuclear stealth strike aircraft.
Rising to the rank of senior airman, his main duties on the base were guarding nuclear weapons while serving with the 509th Munitions Squadron.
The Sun Online verified Adrian's credentials by viewing documents which appeared to confirm his military service and his top secret clearance.
He has now bravely spoken up as he said he never officially reported his UFO sightings officially due to a military culture of silence.
He came forward to tell his story to The Sun Online and The Liberation Times.
Adrian, who received medals for outstanding service, feared top brass would revoke his clearance and "put a target on his back" if he said anything about the strange encounters.

But he is speaking out as a variety of former US intelligence officials, nuclear launch officers, and fighter pilots have come forward about their UFO experiences in the last few years.
And it comes as former US Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton even admitted there is something happening in the skies over the US that cannot be explained.
Adrian told The Sun Online he witnessed yellow orb UFOs flying over the base on two occasions while working as a "gun guard".
Through his duties, he had a clear view and understanding of the bombers, fighter jets and other aircraft which would take off and leave the base.
So he is 100 per cent sure the objects he witnessed were not military or civilian aircraft – and the lights also did not move like any known vehicles.
And he admits he does not known for sure what they were, but acknowledges they could be of alien origin.
His first encounter – in autumn 2005 – came when he was guarding a nuclear weapon which was being transported across the base.
"Naturally during this time I am being hyper vigilant, and I notice a light or orb hovering along the top of the tree line, I’d thought it was just a star at the time, " Adrian said.
"But as I continued surveilling the area, the light/orb shot above the tree tops and hung there for some time."
And then as the team arrived to secure the nuclear weapons, the object shot straight up into the sky and "disappeared".
Adrian explained: "Not like it went up so far in the atmosphere it disappeared – but like it just wasn't there any more kind of disappeared if you understand my meaning.
"I didn’t report it or say anything because I didn’t want the ridicule and it also didn’t seem like a threat at the time, just something weird."
And on a separate occasion, he witnessed another orb the same colour and shape as the first one which also hung stationary over the base before appearing to vanish.
Adrian's last strange experience on the base – in summer 2006 – was when he says he encountered what he could only describe as a "shadow person".
He said he was working in a locked down section of the base, when he heard the sound of footsteps like "bare feet in a swimming pool".
The nuke tech – who was doing admin work at the time on a night shift – went to investigate and said he encountered a humanoid "void" like shape.
And he claimed when he moved to pursue the phenomena it then vanished.
He described an "airlock" style double door system was the only way to get out of the area – and said the motion sensors were not tripped.
Adrian said he encounter shook him – but he convinced himself simply "weird s**" happens sometimes" and buried the unsettling incident in the back of his mind.
He added he didn't report it as it "wasn't worth the trouble I could get in".
Since leaving the military, he has not had any other experiences like what he saw on the base and not see any other UFOs.
He believes it is "about f***ing time" that the US speaks openly and takes seriously the phenomena.
Adrian said he was inspired by people like former US intelligence official Lue Elizondo to finally speak out – after having his interest peaked by the release of the infamous Pentagon videos of UFOs.
And his experiences occurred in the same few years as the infamous "Tic Tac" incident off the coast of California.
The USS Nimitz nuclear-powered aircraft carrier dispatched two F/A-18F Super Hornet fighter jets to intercept a mysterious pill-shape object which vanished.
Footage of the bizarre incident was part of packet of leaks by The New York Times in 2017 which brought UFOs back to the centre stage.
Adrian has come forward amid concerns over the links between UFOs – now more often referred to as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) – and nuclear weapons.
What is going on with UFOs in the US?
UFOS have stepped from fringe conspiracy theories to a genuine national security debate in the US.
Pentagon officials last year took the unprecedented step to confirm a trio of remarkable videos which showed US encounters with UFOs.
The debate is still open as to what the phenomena caught on film were – but it made clear to everyone, something is in the skies.
Perhaps the most striking was a video known as the “Tic Tac” – which showed an unidentified object being pursued by fighter planes.
The US also confirmed the existence of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) – a Pentagon programme set up to study UFOs before being disbanded in 2017.
However, it was replaced by the UAP Task Force in June 2020 after a vote by the US Senate Intelligence Committee.
Defence chiefs have since confirmed a number of leaked UFO videos and photos which were submitted to the Task Force for investigation.
Why this sudden rush for transparency?
No outside the secretive wings of the US government currently knows for sure.
And as a tacked on addendum to a 5,500 page Covid relief bill passed in December, the the Director of National Intelligence’s office was ordered to compile a report on UFOs within 180 days.
The UAP report dropped as expected on June 25, and while not giving much away – it did not rule anything out either as much of it remains classified.
The US appear to have acknowledged that UFOs – whatever they are – are real and are a potential threat to national security as they appear to be able to enter restricted airspace with total impunity.
Is it aliens? Officially the US position is simply, "we don't know yet" as further disclosure is expected in the coming months and years.
US lawmakers demanded reports of nuclear security as part of the purview of a new UFO office included in a mulit-billona defence bill signed off by Joe Biden.
It came after a number of former US servicemen came forward and revealed their own experiences with UFOs at nuclear weapons facilities.
The veterans even claimed the phenomena had "interfered" with weapons – including taking them offline – as they demanded transparency from the US.
UFOs have stepped from a fringe conspiracy theory to a serious national security debate in the US.
And a historic report by the Pentagon earlier in the year revealed 144 sightings by the military since 2004 remain unexplained.
Biden signed into law at the end of December a new UFO investigation unit that will run on the ground investigations and probe any "threat" posed by the phenomena.
The office will be set up jointly between the Department of Defense and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) — a key marriage between the intelligence and military communities.
It will probe whether or not the strange craft that has been reportedly buzzing the US military are unknown technology from Russia and China or potentially something more alien.
The renewed interest in UFOs has marked an incredible turnaround after the government dismissed the phenomena at the conclusion of Project Blue Book in the 1960s.
