A recently released document has revealed how many of last year's UFO cases remain unexplained.
The newly declassified 11-page report, which was filed by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), details a total of 566 sightings of UFOs (or UAPs).
Of these, 366 were added in 2022, of which 195 have been classed as explained while the other 171 remain "uncharacterized and unattributed", mainly due to a lack of available data.
The Pentagon has been a lot more open about its investigations into the phenomena in recent months and this report shows that it is still very much committed to continuing this trend.
Most of the 195 explained reports from last year turned out to be mundane things, including 163 that were determined to be "balloons or balloon-like entities" and 26 which turned out to be drones.
Some of them were little more than birds or plastic bags being blown by the wind.
The 171 unexplained cases, meanwhile, are far more interesting, with several of them still under investigation and each typically involving an object or objects moving in unconventional ways.
The majority of the reports appear to have been submitted by military personnel.
The document does not, however, suggest that any of the objects are extraterrestrial in nature.
