Pentagon official published paper suggesting UFO sightings could be probes from an alien mothership

A Pentagon official who heads up a secretive unit studying unidentified flying objects has speculated that recent sightings in US airspace could actually be alien probes from a mothership sent to study Earth.

Sean Kirkpatrick, head of the Pentagon's All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), has claimed in a new academic paper that the objects, which appear to defy all physics, could be "probes" from an extra-terrestrial "parent craft".

The draft paper, co-authored by Harvard professor Avi Loeb and seen by Politico, that interstellar objects such as the cigar-shaped "Oumuamua" that scientists spotted flying through the galaxy in 2017 "could potentially be a parent craft that releases many small probes during its close passage to Earth."

Comment: The paper was not well received by the scientific community. And a few days later the Telegraph came out with another article titled "UFO 'sightings' most likely tech made by human adversaries, Pentagon told" after Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick testified before Congress stating that "his office is now reviewing 650 incidents [UFO related], but that there is no evidence that any of them is of extraterrestrial origin."

Is damage control underway?
It came as the head of the Pentagon task force investigating UFOs said he had "concerning indicators" that an adversary such as China or Russia could have developed new advanced technology.


He said AARO had so far found no evidence that any of the sightings were of extraterrestrial origin.

He told senators: "In our research AARO has found no credible evidence thus far of extraterrestrial activity, off-world technology or objects that defy the known laws of physics."

But he said there was a risk that new technology from foreign adversaries could be responsible for some of the sightings.

He said: "They are less risk averse at technical advancement than we are. They are just willing to try things and see if it works.

"Are there capabilities that could be employed against us in both ISR [intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance] and a weapons fashion? Absolutely.

"Do I have evidence they're doing it in these cases? No. But I have concerning indicators."


Pentagon says US military drone spotted UFO over Middle East

The video was previously marked classified by the government, but has now been released and it shows a fast-moving "metallic orb" travelling over buildings.
A Senate hearing on the Pentagon's 'Anomaly Resolution Office' that tracks UFOs featured testimony that most of the hundreds of cases being reviewed are based on 'readily explainable' phenomena - while revealing footage of a mysterious flying orb that is still 'unresolved.'

Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick of DOD's All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office told the Senate Armed Services Committee that hundreds of sightings of spherical or oddly shaped objects spotted by military pilots remain under review.

'I should also state clearly for the record that in our research AARO has found no credible evidence thus far of extraterrestrial activity, off-world technology or objects that defy the known laws of physics,' Kirkpatrick told the panel.

The rare hearing, the first since last year's pathbreaking public event and the first since the Chinese spy balloon that crossed the country early this year, included an accounting of the cases the new office is analyzing.

New research paper, in draft form, comes from the Pentagon's All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office.

Pentagon officials said in a draft document last week that aliens could be visiting our solar system and releasing smaller probes like missions conducted by NASA when studying other planets.

A draft research report authored by Sean Kirkpatrick, the director of the Pentagon's All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) and Abraham Loeb, chairman of Harvard University's astronomy department was released on March 7 and focuses on the physical constraints of unidentified aerial phenomena.

William Church of Arizona, who shared his dashcam footage, says he thinks the translucent figure that appears to be standing on the side of the road on March 11, 2023, could be a potential ghost.
Truck driver William Church reportedly saw a figure on the side of an Arizona highway, and he thinks it could be a ghost

A truck driver's dashcam video showing a mysterious figure appearing on the side of an empty road in Arizona has viewers discussing the possibility of a supernatural occurrence.

William Church, a truck driver who reportedly drove down Arizona State Route 87 on Saturday, March 11, noticed a bright glare in his dashcam, and he thinks the flashing figure could be a ghost, according to FOX Television Stations.

The suspected specter was spotted at around 2:30 a.m. local time while Church passed the highway's 200-mile marker, which is located between Phoenix and Payson, Arizona.

Church told FOX Television Stations there were no other cars on the road.

Hundreds of UFO sightings in Southwestern Ontario since the 1990s

Triangles, spheres, boomerangs, and fireballs.

For decades, people have reported seeing UFOs of all shapes and sizes in the skies over Southwestern Ontario. Since 1991, Winnipeg-based Ufology Research has recorded 153 UFO sightings in Windsor and Essex County, including five in 2022. There have been 328 sightings since 1989 in the London region, including six last year.

Chris Rutkowski, a writer and researcher with Ufology Research, said those sightings likely weren't alien-related. Of course, there's no way to know for sure.

"We've always been interested in the possibility of, 'are we alone in the universe?' " said Rutkowski, who has been investigating UFOs since the 1970s. "Are there other creatures like us or intelligent beings? We try to put our own lives in some perspective. There's a little bit of saviour mentality. Maybe the aliens can help figure a way out of the mess that we've made of Earth. If they've travelled all around the galaxy, maybe they're much more intelligent and have learned some of the lessons we still have to learn. So there's a little bit of that. But I think it's more we just want to know. Some reassurance that we're not alone."

Ufology Research has recorded 24,000 separate Canadian cases of UFOs, also called unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), since it started collecting and analyzing data in 1989. There were 768 recorded UFO sightings across Canada in 2022.

In January 2022, a person in Windsor saw a "huge V-shaped formation of lights" fly over them before vanishing. In September, someone in Windsor saw an object that looked like "a big pill with lights all over the bottom." The last reported local sighting in 2022, described as some "stationary" and "vertical" comets, was on Dec. 21 in Essex.

Holograms over cities to fake an alien invasion and terrorize the masses.
A Heaping Pile

For over half a century the U.S. government wouldn't touch the topic of UFOs or aliens with a ten-thousand-light-year pole. Everything was denied, classified, redacted, memory-holed, and almost nothing was ever commented on. Perhaps it was intentional to propagate the legend and let imaginations and popular culture run wild.

Now like a teenage cheerleader who just had her first kiss with the starting varsity quarterback, the government suddenly can't shut up about UFOs or aliens.

Documents and video footage have been released over the past few years in unprecedented numbers. From those 2004 Tic-Tac-looking UFOs recorded by Naval aviators to many of the high flyers being permitted to appear on the largest podcasts in the world to openly discuss previously classified encounters that they say occurred with incredible frequency (sometimes daily) as if they were suddenly no big deal.

What happened to the government telling former employees with top-secret clearance: this is classified, shut up about it or we'll fu**ing kill you.

There's an epidemic of SADS around everything UFOs lately - Sudden Accelerated Document Spewage.

When the U.S. government wants Americans and the world to know something so desperately, it's a pretty good sign they're peddling a mirage, something that never happened as they say, a partially contrived event, an exaggeration of previously normal events, or a completely made-up heaping pile of dog shit.

It also could be a process of laying the final finishes of a decades-long operation.

There's no telling what Act we are entering with this latest staged performance of hot air balloons entering "restricted airspace" and the military claiming they just somehow didn't see them drifting at snail speeds over thousands of kilometers from Alaska and Canada until they recently updated their systems to track slow moving objects.

NORAD must have traded its computer radars connected to billions of dollars worth of up-to-the-nanosecond satellites with complex sensory detection designed to warn against incoming missiles for Etch A Sketches.

But Good Citizen you just underestimate how incompetent people in government are!

— Uh-huh.

The hot air buffoons at the Pentagon press department got the latest memo to stop calling them balloons and start calling them unidentified flying objects of mysterious and unknown origin. Definitely, nothing that originated from the black ops hangers at Groom Lake.

All those UFOs captured by video over decades that showed mysterious objects doing impossible maneuvers that defied the known laws of physics, the ones that were immediately classified and denied, all those UFOs that previously could disappear in the blink of an eye into the sea or sky are now magically being shot down by gimpy fighter jets.


Metallic-looking orb is seen flying over Iraqi city of Mosul in 2016 - first ever publicly revealed UFO footage taken by US spy plane in a conflict zone

iraq ufo
DailyMail.com obtained an exclusive image of a metallic-looking orb flying over an Iraqi city, caught on video by a US spy plane.

The image, captured in April 2016 by an intelligence-reconnaissance plane, was included in a classified briefing video on UFOs shown to multiple US government agencies.

The briefing video describes it as a 'short clip of an unidentified flying orb that appears to have a metallic shine on its surface', and shows the strange object flying over the city of Mosul in northern Iraq with the background of the shot showing the streets below.

It is the first publicly revealed image from the US government's ongoing UFO investigation showing an unidentified craft over a conflict zone.

A UFO flying around where the US military is operating has sparked security and safety concerns at the Department of Defense, with military officials worried it could endanger pilots and ground troops.


US govt receives more than 350 new UFO reports, mostly from US military personnel

The US government has received over 350 new reports of what the US government terms "unidentified aerial phenomenon," commonly known as UFOs, since March of 2021 - roughly half of which are so far unexplained, according to a report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released on Thursday.

According to the report, the Pentagon office responsible for tracking and studying the sightings has preliminarily identified 163 of the reports as "balloon or balloon-entities." A handful of other reports have been attributed to drones, birds, weather events or airborne debris like plastic bags.

But "initial characterization does not mean positively resolved or unidentified," the report cautioned. And the remaining 171 reported sightings of UAPs or UFOs continue to be unexplained by the US government.

'We have nothing' showing UFOs are of alien origin, says US Defense official

So far, data has not shown unidentified anomalous phenomena to be from an alien source, according to defense officials.
Unlike what is portrayed in television and movies, the government has not found evidence of UFOs — or unidentified flying objects — that are extraterrestrial in nature. However, the government is expanding efforts to collect data on objects it still can't explain.

According to a media roundtable held last month, the Defense Department's All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office is tracking and analyzing unidentified anomalous phenomena, or UAP — the term is an updated version of UFO and the previous version of UAP, or unidentified aerial phenomena, to reflect unidentified phenomena not just in the air, but also on the ground and in sea and space — that pose a threat.

"Unidentified objects in the skies, sea and space pose potential threats to safety and security, particularly for operational personnel," AARO Director Sean Kirkpatrick said. "AARO is leading a focused effort to better characterize, understand and attribute these objects and is employing the highest scientific and analytic standards."

As noted at the roundtable, AARO — which was provided for in the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act, established in July and replaced the former Navy-led Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force — is working with other agencies to improve its data collection on UAPs. Agency partners include military services, the intelligence community, the Energy Department, NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and others.


Residents in rural Wisconsin share extraordinary videos of possible UFO sighting

A salon owner identified only as Kimberly, 52, shared videos of the phenomenon with DailyMail.com after she witnessed strange bright lights flashing over the night skies while driving on a rural road in West Bend, Wisconsin the night of December 1, 2022
Strange lights shooting across rural Wisconsin skies this month were filmed by witnesses in multiple stunning videos obtained by DailyMail.com - with one having a spooky up-close encounter.

The footage from December 1 shows bright white lights zipping across cloudy skies over the rolling farmland near West Bend and Fredonia, Wisconsin.

Moving at incredible speeds and appearing to come from above the thin cloud layer that night, the phenomena left witnesses believing they had seen a true UFO display.

Unlike most incidents from a single blurry, shaky camera, this case has at least two witnesses who did not know each other and filmed the lights at the same time from different locations, according to their video metadata.
