The UFO Phenomenon

The Pentagon's UFO office has secured another full year of funding

The US government's official UFO investigation office is set to continue operating well into the future.
Known as the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), this new UFO-focused arm of the Pentagon was founded following the revelation that US Navy pilots had been pursuing (and even recording) unknown objects moving at extreme speeds off the coast of the United States.

Concerns had been raised about the amount of money available to keep the office running, but now it seems as though the financial side of things has been sorted out, at least for now, with additional funding being included in the Senate Armed Services Committee's markup of the National Defense Authorization Act for 2024.
"With aggression from adversaries on the rise and with incidents like the Chinese spy balloon, it's critical to our national security that we have strong air domain awareness over our homeland and around U.S. forces operating overseas," said Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand - a New York Democrat who had previously pushed for additional funding after the NDAA dragged its feet last year.

"The office provides the opportunity to integrate and resolve threats and hazards to the U.S., while also offering increased transparency to the American people and reducing the stigma around this issue of high public interest."

The actual amount of money assigned to the office, however, remains classified.

Oh look!  You have evaded answering a question again.  So many opportunities to demonstrate you claimed knowledge, but you keep missing. Not even being able to find a screen shot showin 1000+ knots is a new nadir of incompetance. The video was likely presented in PAL format.  PAL has a refresh rate a little bit quicker than one frame per second. A civillian transcribed the data. Look at that one contact was said to last less than one tenth of second. Now, which Contact No. does the 22.5s tran represent?  Was it observed at 0h29m or 0h... [More]

From your link: 00 h 13: First lock on the target designated by the CRC. Position: "on the nose" 6 NM (Nautical Miles), 9000 feet, direction: 250. The target speed changes within minimum time from 150 to 970 knots, altitude coming down from 9000 to 5000 feet, then up to 11000 feet, and, shortly after, down to ground level. From this results a "break lock" after some seconds, the pilot losing the radar contact. The Glons radar informs, at the moment of the break lock, that the fighters are above the target position. +/- 00 h 19 - 00 h 30: The Semmerzake TCC as well as the Glons CRC have lost co... [More]

You  switched the discussion from the 22.5s contact?  That never happens!

 It's all there at posts'  #915   and   #114   and also understand that the information was revealed by the Belgian Air Force during its international press conference. I also want this to post from the link you provided. The report from your link revealed that: for the firsttime a radar contact has been positively observed, in corrrelation with different sensors of the Air Force (CRC, TCC, RAPCON, EBBE and F-16 radar), and this in the same area as visual observations. This has to be explained by the fact that the March 30-31 UFOs have been noticed at +/- 10000 feet altitude, whereas... [More]

Well, the funding hasn't necessarily been secured as the FY NDAA hasn't been approved. So, we'll see what survives the political knife fight this NDAA has become.

Well, considering that this news broke not long ago:  "UFOs Pose 'Legitimate Issue' for Training US Fighter Pilots, Declares US Navy Admiral"  Funding should continue.

Additionally, the FY24 NDAA likely will have to go back to the house. I just don't see any compromises being made on the two main topics being debated currently.

Well I did. And I have never figured out why the most clueless on the subject always claim to have the most definite answers about it. Its amazing how the coining of conspiracy to discredit witnesses has been acknowledged and admitted for decades and yet these type are still too brainwashed to stop and realize that thier lack of experience is hardly a deterrent to speak about what we see. In fact it speaks volumes that the same individuals put so much effort into insulting the people brave enough to try to educate others at thier own loss. The deniers reluctance to break free from thier condit... [More]

This is all really shortsighted. If you would ever stop with the narcissistic nonsense demanding anyone who has a clue deliver you an alien for acceptance you might be a little more of the reality and history of the situation. Transdimensional visitors aren't just going to sit here and let you take a body part or whatever you were trying to do. They use tech to enter our spectrum. It's not a one way trip. Why don't  you practice your own reasoning and show me the rainbow you must have held captive if they are indeed real. Quit spewing nonsense and demands at people just because you dont compr...

Why is it narcissism to want proof of what would be by and far THE most impactful and important scientific and spiritual discovery in the history of mankind?   But they could at least say Hi. I think the vast majority of skeptics understand that there are things that thus far, have defied our comprehension, infact that is the entire point.  Just because it defies comprehension doesn’t prove something else.  This isn’t a game of Guess Who.
