Although Dr Sagan always officially rejected the idea that Ufos have visited earth secretly he knew they were real. Apparently he wasn't able to express his true opinion as it would have risked funding for research projects like SETI (whose whole basis holds onto upon the flawed belief that ufos & ET's haven't made it to earth) . According to new information, he confided this with Dr. Allen J. Hynek who was well known for runing the US Airforces only official investigation into Ufos - project Bluebook.

This startling revelation about Carl Sagan, one of this century’s most esteemed scientists and writers, has now been made public by Paola Leopizzi-Harris, a former associate of Dr. Allen J. Hynek who worked with him from 1980 to 1985.
Carl Sagan - "I know UFOs are real..." Dr. J. Allen Hynek served as a civilian scientific consultant to the U.S. Air Force Project Blue Book from 1952 to 1969, initially taking a very critical and skeptical position on anything related to the reality of UFOs. In one of his own reports he stated...
