There are now dozens of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) that military pilots have reported seeing in the US.
Of the 144 instances of the mysterious occurrences that have been reported since 2004, none have been explained thus far.
While the objects are not proven to be extraterrestrial, it is possible.
Following a claim by the US military that unidentified objects were flying erratically in the sky, Congress ordered the report.
In August, the Pentagon set up the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) to investigate reports of unidentified flying objects.
This organization’s job was to “find, investigate, and document” these incidents, as well as acquire understanding of the Pentagon’s definition of UFOs, the military stated.
What was new in the report?
Most of the reported occurrences of the “unidentified aerial phenomenon” — commonly referred to as UAP — happened in the previous two years, following the implementation of a standardized reporting procedure implemented by the U.S. Navy.
In 143 of the reported cases, we could not link occurrences to particular reasons since our dataset does not have adequate information about them.
It concluded that it could not exclude the possibility of a non-terrestrial explanation, but did not claim to have found any such evidence.
This research suggests that UAPs probably don’t have a single explanation. One possibility is that these technologies and natural atmospheric occurrences are all sourced from countries like China and Russia, and the other possibility is that they are all due to US military projects and clandestine operations.
It was reported that, with “high confidence,” they were able to identify just one “positive instance.” The article says this was a big, deflated balloon.
It concluded that “the potential for unauthorized airspace entry by UAP presents a clear safety of flight problem and may represent a risk to U.S. national security.”
According to the taskforce, the “seek new approaches to enhance reporting collection” is one of the top priorities, along with receiving extra funds to explore subjects outlined in this report.
What proof do you have?
In April of 2020, the UAPs were declassified by the U.S. Department of Defense. The statement claims that they were videotaped by the U.S. Navy.
Two former Navy pilots, speaking on the CBS News program 60 Minutes, stated that they had seen an object in the Pacific Ocean that mimicked their motions.
It was compared to a white Tic-Tac with one pilot calling it a “small white Tic-Tac-like thing,” alluding to the white circle mints.
A witness and former Navy pilot, Alex Dietrich, described what he saw as “something similar, but it was moving quickly and erratically, and we couldn’t foresee which direction it was going or how it was maneuvering in the way that it was, or the propulsion system.”
“No exhaust or propulsion was seen. It was not obvious to everyone why it was doing what it was doing.”
