An annual report released this week has outlined the sheer number of UFO sightings currently being investigated by AARO.
According to Sean Kirkpatrick - head of the Pentagon's All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office - investigators have received a combined total of around 800 sightings as of April this year.

The office has also released a new report in which it mentions receiving 291 new reports of unidentified aerial phenomena between August 31st 2022 and April 30th 2023, stating:

"Most reports still reflect a bias towards restricted military airspace, a result of reporting 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 US."

The report notes that there were no reports of ill-health related to the sightings, adding:
"...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."

Speaking to CNN, Kirkpatrick noted that the majority of these are likely to have mundane, conventional explanations, but that some could be indicative of foreign activity.

"There are some indicators that are concerning that may be attributed to foreign activity, and we are investigating those very hard," he said, while adding that "[we are] looking at some very interesting indicators of things, and that's about all I can tell you."

"It could just be a foreign entity. It could be a hobbyist. It could be anybody."

"And those are the things that we have to look into."

Wow imagine that! When they listen instead of threatening people's careers and ridiculing them they share. So funny how that works. Well this is great. I am sure this new attitude will hugely advance the Pentagon's understanding of what is going on. Eventually.  I can't wait until we put together everything they are teaching people and use it to advance our scientific knowledge. In my experience they were educating me on quantum physics and frequencies and i still dont understand what was happening exactly. It helped me understand a lot of things though and if they are talking to this many pe... [More]
