Could be ET, could also be something interdimensional (see the works of Jaques Vallee or John Keel), or something entirely else (time travellers?). Possible is also a mix of everything of the aforementioned.

You've missed one: it could be an Intraterrestrial phenomenon.

The Pentagon Is Opening an 'Anomaly Resolution' Department to Study UFOs

The newly-created All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) will study "transmedium" UFOs that fly between space, the air, and under the water.

The Pentagon announced it’s opening an office specifically to chase down reports of unidentified flying objects in a press release on Wednesday. It’ll be called the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) and will work to collect and analyze various reports of UFO activity from across America’s various federal agencies.

“The mission of the AARO will be to synchronize efforts across the Department of Defense, and with other U.S. federal departments and agencies, to detect, identify and attribute objects of interest in, on or near military installations, operating areas, training areas, special use airspace and other areas of interest, and, as necessary, to mitigate any associated threats to safety of operations and national security,” the press release explained. “This includes anomalous, unidentified space, airborne, submerged and transmedium objects.”

The new office is the result of various disclosures of unidentified aerial phenomenon (UAP) by the DoD after lobbying and leaks from groups like Tom Delonge’s To the Stars Academy. Credible witnesses, including Navy pilots, have come forward and described their experiences with UFOs. One recent Navy video leaked by a UFO enthusiast and confirmed by the Pentagon showed a UFO apparently disappearing into the water, which may explain the new office’s focus on “transmedium” objects—objects that flit between space, the air, and under the water.

Under pressure from Congress and the public, the Pentagon’s Director of National Intelligence released a nine-page report on the phenomenon in June of 2021. The report looked at more than 100 sightings and came to few conclusions. "Explaining UAP will require analytic, collection, and resource investment,” the DNI said in the report. A year later, it seems Congress has agreed to make that resource investment.

The National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal 2022 included a provision to establish the AARO. It’ll be headed by the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security and run by Dr. Sean M. Kirkpatrick, the chief scientist at the Defense Intelligence Agency's Missile and Space Intelligence Center.

According to a Pentagon provided biography of Kirkpatrick, he did his Ph.D. work in “nonlinear and nonequilibrium phonon dynamics of rare earth doped fluoride crystals” and started working for the Pentagon right out of graduate school. He built and studied lasers for the Navy, nano-fabrication techniques for the Air Force, and worked for both the DIA and the CIA.

Now he’s the guy who will run the office investigating UFOs for the Pentagon. According to the Pentagon press release, this will mean six things. AARO will act “along these primary lines of effort: Surveillance, Collection and Reporting; System Capabilities and Design; Intelligence Operations and Analysis; Mitigation and Defeat; Governance; Science and Technology.”

I want to believe that Kirkpatrick and the AARO will do good work and find out what’s flying around the sky and buzzing American ships and planes. Let’s hope it doesn’t take more years of leaks and the efforts of Blink 182’s former frontman to see results.

Navy Says All UFO Videos Classified, Releasing Them ‘Will Harm National Security’

The Navy says it has more UFO videos. It doesn’t want to share them.


The U.S. Navy says that releasing any additional UFO videos would “harm national security” and told a government transparency website that all of the government’s UFO videos are classified information.

In a Freedom of Information Act request response, the Navy told government transparency site The Black Vault that any public dissemination of new UFO videos “will harm national security as it may provide adversaries valuable information regarding Department of Defense/Navy operations, vulnerabilities, and/or capabilities. No portions of the videos can be segregated for release.”

The Black Vault was seeking all videos “with the designation of ‘unidentified aerial phenomena.’” This is an interesting response from the Navy because, often, military agencies will issue a so-called GLOMAR response, where they neither confirm nor deny that the records (in this case videos) exist, and refuse to say anything more. In this response, the Navy is admitting that it has more videos, and also gives a rationale for releasing three previous UFO videos.

It's a shame but understandable. They could at least release a written account of the events which would help push things along.

And the use of artists just like in courtrooms to visually describe the event. The Navy could take over DC Comics and make $$ too :puf_smile:
Funny how UFOs used to be the perfect cover for any military tech observed for decades. The F-117 comes to mind.

Flying Saucer Appears On U.S. Aviation Intelligence Office Logo (Updated)
An official flying saucer-adorned aviation intelligence unit logo has appeared drawing significant interest and speculation online.



Image


A new official logo for a U.S. Intelligence Community office focused on aerial threats and related security issues, particularly in the skies over the United States, is turning heads for its inclusion of a depiction of a flying saucer. This comes at a time of reinvigorated interest within the U.S. government, as well as the public at large, in unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, which are currently now referred to officially as unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAP. Over the past year or so, the U.S. military, in particular, has been increasingly sparring with members of Congress about how best to respond to the potentially very real threats that UAP present.

The logo in question is the official seal for the National Intelligence Manager-Aviation (NIM-A), who resides, along with their staff, within the Office of the National Director of Intelligence (ODNI). U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Daniel L. Simpson is the current NIM-A, and is also the Executive Director for the National Air Intelligence Integration Office (NAI2O) and Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff of the Air Force for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR). The logo appears on an official website for both NIM-A and NAI2O, the latter entity also operating under the auspices of ODNI.

Bit of an attempted hijack here but…
Anyone ever had an experience where what you think reality is is thrown completely into question?
Like a ufo I guess. Maybe more cosmic than that even.
It’s funny how resistant your original idea of reality can be. How resilient. Funny how much people would rather have the false security of knowing what’s going on than to be thrown out into the space uncertainty.

NASA Announces Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Study Team Members


NASA has selected 16 individuals to participate in its independent study team on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP). Observations of events in the sky that cannot be identified as aircraft or as known natural phenomena are categorized as UAPs.
The independent study will begin on Monday, Oct. 24. Over the course of nine months, the independent study team will lay the groundwork for future study on the nature of UAPs for NASA and other organizations. To do this, the team will identify how data gathered by civilian government entities, commercial data, and data from other sources can potentially be analyzed to shed light on UAPs. It will then recommend a roadmap for potential UAP data analysis by the agency going forward.
The study will focus solely on unclassified data. A full report containing the team’s findings will be released to the public in mid-2023.
“Exploring the unknown in space and the atmosphere is at the heart of who we are at NASA,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “Understanding the data we have surrounding unidentified aerial phenomena is critical to helping us draw scientific conclusions about what is happening in our skies. Data is the language of scientists and makes the unexplainable, explainable.”
Unidentified aerial phenomena are of interest for both national security and air safety and the study aligns with one of NASA’s goals to ensure the safety of aircraft. Without access to an extensive set of data, it is nearly impossible to verify or explain any observation, thus the focus of the study is to inform NASA what possible data could be collected in the future to scientifically discern the nature of UAP.
The NASA official responsible for orchestrating the study is Daniel Evans, the assistant deputy associate administrator for research at NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. As previously announced, the independent study team is chaired by David Spergel, president of the Simons Foundation.
“NASA has brought together some of the world's leading scientists, data and artificial intelligence practitioners, aerospace safety experts, all with a specific charge, which is to tell us how to apply the full focus of science and data to UAP,” said Evans. “The findings will be released to the public in conjunction with NASA’s principles of transparency, openness, and scientific integrity.”
The members of NASA’s independent study team on unidentified aerial phenomena are:
