Subcommittee Chairman Democrat Rep. Andre Caron made the announcement Tuesday in a tweet. 

“Congress hasn’t held a public hearing on unidentified aerial phenomena in over 50 years,” Carson tweeted. “That will change next week when I lead a hearing in @HouseIntel on this topic & the national security risk it poses. Americans need to know more about these unexplained occurrences.” 

The subcommittee is part of the larger House Intelligence Committee, which is led by California Rep.
