There has been a spike in 'alien activities' in the last two months of the year 2017, Ramirez told Daily Mail.
The upcoming launches by NASA and SpaceX would trigger the number of UFO sightings, Ramirez said.
"Aliens are aware that we have made a number of space launches recently and have identified that we have been sending up 'war material'," he explained to CEN news agency.
