The United States military reported on it’s investigation into over 650 UFO sightings across America, but said there’s no ‘credible evidence.’
Military Reveals Information On UFO Sightings
During a congressional hearing last week, the Pentagon’s research office revealed that more than 650 unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) sightings have been documented, with over 140 new cases reported since January.
Sean Kirkpatrick, the director of the Defense Department’s All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), testified that the office had found no credible evidence of extraterrestrial activity, off-world technology or objects that defy the known laws of physics.
However, Kirkpatrick also added that in the event of sufficient scientific data that a UAP can only be explained by extraterrestrial origin, the AARO is committed to working with NASA to appropriately inform the government’s leadership of its findings.
United Aerial Phenomena (UAP)
The annual report on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena released in January by the Office of National Intelligence showed that as of August 30, 2022, 510 UAP sightings had been documented.
Of the sightings examined in the report, more than half were investigated and dismissed as “unremarkable.”
However, the remaining objects pose unanswered questions for investigators, with the majority of the objects reported by U.S. Navy and Air Force operators, though details are often lacking to provide sufficient evidence for a fuller investigation.
Kirkpatrick noted during his congressional testimony that UAP reports were more concentrated along the nation’s eastern and western coasts in the U.S., and internationally, most sightings were reported in the Middle East or the Pacific Ocean near China.
The majority of UAPs are reported as orbs, either flat and round or sphere-like objects.
There’s More To Learn
The AARO is developing a new website to better document public encounters of UAPs with the goal of better sharing of information between the public, the Pentagon, and the Office of National Intelligence.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand emphasized the importance of understanding UAPs, stating that “Congress established this office in law to get to the bottom of the very serious problem of unidentified anomalous phenomenon or UAP” and that there is a vast and complex citizen engagement, and there are also very challenging scientific and technical hurdles.
Gillibrand also referred to the recent Chinese spy balloon that passed over the U.S. to stress the importance of the issue.
