The Pentagon released its 2022 UFO report on Thursday. It is called the 2022 Annual Report on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena but we’re going to call them UFOs because it’s funner.
The report tracks over 500 UFO sightings but concludes that some of them were drones, balloons or “airborne clutter” such as birds or flying plastic bags. Birds are not sky clutter but we’ll let that slide for now.
That left 171 UFOs that were “uncharacterized and unattributed.” Some of them “demonstrated unusual flight characteristics or performance capabilities, and require further analysis.”
There is no jokey X-Files language in this report. The government appears to be taking it seriously and so we are too!
