The following article, U.S. Government Report: More UFO Sightings, But No Threat To Safety, was first published on Flag And Cross.
There have been more UFOs sightings, but they mean us no harm, according to a new official U.S. Government report.
The annual intelligence document delivered Tuesday, Oct. 17 to Congress detailed 291 new sightings of Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) in a period from 2019.
This brought the total cases that All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) has been reviewing to over 800 as of 30 April, 2023.
The AARO leads the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DOD) efforts to document and analyse any potential otherworldy sightings.
Reporting from the period still reflects a bias towards restricted military airspace, a result of reports from military personnel and sensors present in such areas.
This bias has been lessened by reporting from commercial pilots showing a more diverse geographic distribution of UAP sightings across the United States.
The report makes reference to no reports of the mysterious craft interfering with air traffic.
It reads: “While the mere presence of UAP in the airspace represents a potential hazard to flight safety, none of these reports suggest the UAP maneuvered to an unsafe proximity to civil or military aircraft, positioned themselves in flight paths, or otherwise posed a direct threat to the flight safety of the observing aircraft.”
During the reporting period, AARO say they received no statements indicating UAP sightings have been “associated with any adverse health effects”.
However, they add, “many reports from military witnesses do present potential safety of flight concerns, and there are some cases where reported UAP have potentially exhibited one or more concerning performance characteristics such as high-speed travel or unusual maneuverability.”
Pentagon Press Secretary Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder commented: “Analyzing and understanding the potential threats posed by UAP is an ongoing collaborative effort involving many departments and agencies, and the Department thanks the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and other contributing departments and agencies for their collaborative efforts to produce this report.
“The safety of our service personnel, our bases and installations, and the protection of U.S. operations security on land, in the skies, seas, and space are paramount. We take reports of incursions into our designated space, land, sea, or airspaces seriously and examine each one.”
This year’s UAP report covers UAP reports from 31 Aug, 2022, to 30 April, 2023, as well as any UAP report from previous time periods that were not included in an earlier report.
AARO received a total of 291 UAP reports in this time period, consisting of 274 that occurred during this period and another 17 that occurred from 2019-2022 but had not been included in previous annual reports.
