What you will learn:
- The new name of UFOs
- How the government ranks NAPs
- Not much else
I just finished reading the latest government report on Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs). The report published on Friday, June 25e by the office of the director of national intelligence is titled “Preliminary assessment: Unidentified aerial phenomena.“ I was excited to see the report – hoped to bring ED readers some exciting new information about UFOs … oops … now called Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs). Unfortunately, there is not much new to report and, as the hackneyed phrase goes, the report raises more questions than it answers. So let’s talk about it.
People have seen UFOs for decades in the United States, and according to some reports, they have been sighted for centuries all over the world. It all probably started with a UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, as it was originally called, and then covered in a weather balloon story. Some of those involved said the craft was like a flying saucer and extraterrestrial (ET) biological entities had been recovered. The government still denies any details about the incident and most subsequent submissions have also been dismissed.
After years of increasing numbers of UFO sightings, the government virtually denies having any significant knowledge about them. This new report is a product of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Working Group (UAPTF). This is simply an update on the subject based on data collected by Navy and Air Force pilots and the intelligence community who witnessed some UAPs during the period 2004 to 2021.
To better identify and classify UAPs, the UAPTF uses five general categories:
- Overhead dimensions: birds, balloons, drones, debris, etc.
- Natural atmospheric phenomena: humidity, ice crystals, thermal variations, etc.
- Government or industry development programs: classified objects under development.
- Foreign adversary systems: UAP technologies developed by China, Russia or other countries for intelligence or weapons collection.
- Other: insufficient data to identify.
This last category is the most interesting – this is where many if not most PSUs would be classified. These were observed visually, on radar, infrared, electro-optical or other sensors, but still could not be identified. Many of these PANs can hover in a stationary position or move against the wind without any visible support. And they frequently make sudden movements and fly at unexplained extreme speeds. Many military sightings were accompanied by RF energy detection.
The report cannot explain more than 140 observations it mentions. And there does not appear to be any evidence that the observed objects originated from space or from an alien adversary.
As the report indicates, the UAPTF is particularly concerned about flight safety and national security. It plans to increase its collection of UAP data, categorize it in more detail, and perform enhanced analysis to find out more. Data analysis will include AI, machine learning algorithms, pattern recognition, and other data analysis methods. Additional funding will be required.
And that’s about it. I hope that the congressional committees which requested this report are satisfied with it. Most of us would probably like a lot more. Interest is on the rise all over the United States and around the world in learning the truth. For example:
- Are UFOs Real?
- Are ETs real?
- Why does the government not tell us more?
- Are Aliens and NAPs Dangerous and Potential Enemies?
- What can we do about PSUs?
- What is or was going on in the so-called Area 51?
- If UFOs aren’t important, then why did the United States establish a space force in 2020?
The UFO community is large and growing. People are curious and want to know more about UFOs and aliens.
Chariots of the Gods
Early interest in UFOs outside of the Roswell event occurred with the book Chariots of the Gods by Eric Von Daniken in 1968. Daniken didn’t actually state that UFOs and aliens were real, but he cleverly asked hundreds of questions about their existence. He identified a massive amount of growing archeology that cannot be explained by traditional means. Millions of copies of the book have been sold, and it’s still an interesting and viable source for reading about UFOs and aliens.
Interest in space and all related matters increased in 1969 with the first manned moon landing and subsequent Apollo lunar expeditions in the 1970s and beyond. Meanwhile, UFO sightings continued to escalate. And what about all those space related movies / TV shows like Star wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and many others ? Huge popularity.
Today, multiple non-governmental efforts are underway to find answers. The long-running television series Ancient aliens on the History channel is extremely popular, regularly covering the topic and researching answers. It clearly identifies unexplained archaeological sites and asks relevant questions about who built them, when, by whom and why. The evidence they reveal is overwhelming and cannot be ignored.
Independent data collection and analysis is carried out by a non-profit, non-governmental organization called the Mutual UFO Network, or MUFON. MUFON occasionally features news in its Hanger 1 TV series. George Noory’s Coast to Coast AM radio show regularly covers UFOs, Aliens, and related topics.
In conclusion, we can probably assume that UFOs are real. However, they may be mostly unmanned drones based on extreme G forces beyond human endurance or ET that many UFOs seem to demonstrate. The government continues to hold back, cover up and avoid the topic. National security is the main reason, and it makes sense.
Yet national security can be protected even if we all know the truth about UFOs and aliens. And engineers like us would love to know what advanced, secret and awesome electronic components and techniques could be presented to us by the ETs themselves.
