The Pentagon has released a video of a reported UFO. The UFO was seen flying in the vicinity of Air Force MQ-9 Reaper drones at a very high speed. The drones “showed some really interesting things that everyone thought was truly anomalous.”
The object flew over South Asia earlier this year and appeared to have a propulsion trail, but it was later determined to be a “sensor artifact,” Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick explained.
During the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities, the director of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) showed lawmakers the second video of the two. He took them through the entire video ‘frame by frame’ and explained the UFO sighting.
The first was an “unresolved” UAP – an unidentified anomalous phenomenon, which is the government-created word for UFO.
“Why am I showing you this?” Kirkpatrick told lawmakers. “This is the kind of data we have to work with and the type of analysis we have to do, which can be extensive when you have to pull these apart frame by frame.”
“Further, we’re now matching all of this with models of all those imaging sensors so that I can recreate this. I can actually show how the sensor going to respond.”
Kirkpatrick also showed an infographic during his presentation with information related to the 2023 UFO sighting. He opened his presentation by saying that there’s no definitive evidence of extraterrestrial technology or alien life.
The Pentagon is tracking more than 650 cases of reported UFOs that are preliminarily categorized into common objects like balloons or airplanes. The ones that don’t fit in any of the categories are prioritized by where they were spotted, Kirkpatrick said.
“Are they attached to a national security area? Does [it] show some anomalous phenomenology that’s of interest?” he said.
“If it’s just a spherical thing that’s just floating around with the wind and has no payload, that’s less important than something with a payload on it, and that’s less important than something that’s maneuvering.”
“We’re working with the joint staff to issue guidance to all the services and commands that will then establish what are the reporting requirements, timeliness and all the data that is required to be delivered to us and retained from all the associated censors,” Kirkpatrick said.
“It’s important to remember that consensus reality is what dictates our beliefs, and time and time again, consensus reality has shifted to accommodate discovery and actual reality. We must change and adapt when we learn new truths,” said Former Navy pilot Ryan Graves.
“The acknowledgment of the UFO presence is likely one of those formative moments for humanity.”
