The UFO Phenomenon

US government's UFO report has been released

The long-awaited report leaves the door open to the possibility that we are being visited by extraterrestrials.
The nine-page document, which is entitled 'Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena', was issued on Friday by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to provide "an intelligence assessment of the threat posed by unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) and the progress the Department of Defense Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) has made in understanding this threat."

The UFO sightings analyzed were all recorded between 2004 and 2021 with many of these confirmed to be 'physical objects' due to being picked up by multiple sensors at the same time.

"In a limited number of incidents, UAP reportedly appeared to exhibit unusual flight characteristics," the report reads. "These observations could be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or observer misperception and require additional rigorous analysis."

"A handful of UAP appear to demonstrate advanced technology," it continues.

"In 18 incidents, described in 21 reports, observers reported unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics. Some UAP appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernible means of propulsion."

"The UAP documented in this limited dataset demonstrate an array of aerial behaviors, reinforcing the possibility there are multiple types of UAP requiring different explanations."
The report also indicates that these objects could pose a potential threat to national security.

"UAP pose a hazard to safety of flight and could pose a broader danger if some instances represent sophisticated collection against U.S. military activities by a foreign government or demonstrate a breakthrough aerospace technology by a potential adversary," the report reads.

As for what these objects are, the report lists several possibilities.

"Some UAP observations could be attributable to developments and classified programs by U.S. entities," it reads. "We were unable to confirm, however, that these systems accounted for any of the UAP reports we collected. Some UAP may be technologies deployed by China, Russia, another nation, or a non-governmental entity."

At the end of the day, the report is essentially saying that these objects do exist, that some of them are exhibiting evidence of advanced technology, but that there is currently no definitive explanation for what they actually are.

The report also does not explicitly rule out the possibility that they are extraterrestrial in nature.

Based on the approximation in 1 Kings 7:23, I also wondered whether he actually saw two objects. I'm super interested to learn how "a bit of an expert on this sort of thing" makes these observations in the field.

Me too.  There's a whole series of phrases like that one: I know what I saw. Are you suggesting I'm lying about my memories? I'm a professional I've got really good observation skills I'm a pilot / police officer / ... .... Interestingly, the first things I learnt in regard to observation (and memories) would stop any truly good observer from saying any of those, because: even initial perceptions are flawed in numerous ways.  And when you add time.. those perceptions will move in the winds.. memories will happily alter to cater for new information or 'improvements' the word 'exaggerate' exi...

Well that all depends on the size and overall brightness of the object. The shockwave that the object emitted had to have been stadium sized or more, so the object also had to have been quite large. I never turned away or changed angles, hell I barely blinked out of Intrigue, so no I don't think it was two or more separate objects. It was clearly one object and when it disappeared and reappeared to reappear in nearly the same location it blinked out for 10ish seconds and when it reappeared the new location was (from my perspective) less than a thumb nail at full arm extension. So just guessing... [More]

No, I'm saying winged flight has to follow some rules, all predicated on the air density. And at that altitude, winged flight must be in a single vector and very fast, often supersonic to stay aloft. This was moving backwards forwards, stopped several times and was definitely NOT going one direction the entire time nor was it moving very fast every time it moved, sometimes it's speed was VERY slow. So I'm saying I didnt observe wings, because it was too far away to discern, but logically, wings would be a superfluous or even detrimental ornament on a craft making these kinds of maneuvers. So I... [More]

The government never will confess to the public what they know about UFOs and aliens.

Just remind me - what are you an expert in? You do know that satellites orbit the Earth, right?  And they don't shine or produce light of their own?  And the Earth is a moderately big object which casts a roughly Earth-sized shadow?     Not sure I see the absolute certainty of the correlation between size and effect.   =     I'm not here calling you names.  I'm not saying I don't believe a word you're saying.  It's really just a crying shame that you've seen 45-50 UAPs (post #68) including ones that last 15 seconds or more (#68) but you haven't managed to capture any imagery to sha...

The thumb subtends about two degrees of arc.  The details literally do not add up.

I agree, not at this time. I think however this report is a snail paced move to letting us know at least something.

   - WRONG. Brassboy, you rather embarrassingly lost all credibility when you offered up that utter bull excrement - you showed you've never observed satellites at all. We do assume some basic familiarity with topics...  If you don't know the topic at all (which you proved above), don't just make **** up - ASK questions.  You might even learn stuff.  You should start on that journey by reading Tom1200's post over and over until you get it.
