The Pentagon has received “several hundred” new reports of UFOs and unidentified phenomena

A new Pentagon office set up to track reports of unidentified flying objects has received “several hundreds” of new reports but has so far seen no evidence of extraterrestrial life, the agency’s leadership told reporters on Friday.

“We saw nothing that would lead us to believe that any of the objects we saw were extraterrestrial in origin,” said Ronald Moultrie, the undersecretary for defense and intelligence.

“I didn’t see anything…that would suggest there was an alien visit or an alien crash,” Moultrie added. Neither Moultrie nor Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, head of the newly organized All Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), wanted to say how many of the approximately 400 cases investigated were identified. They said information would be included in a report to be released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

The last public accounting dates from 2021, when a Pentagon official said one out of 144 cases had been resolved. When asked if any of the cases investigated so far indicate a threat to national security, Kirkpatrick said “yes,” but Moultrie chimed in, adding that any unauthorized object in or near restricted areas — a military base, a Training grounds etc – would be assumed hostile until identified.

The Pentagon investigation covers incidents reported since 1996, but language in the new Defense Spending Act would stretch that 75 years back.

The name was changed from Unidentified Aerial Phenomena to All Domain Anomaly to reflect the fact that some of the investigations deal with unexplained underwater, surface, and space sightings, although most reports still deal with aerial phenomena.

Established in July, AARO is responsible for not only tracking unidentified objects in the sky, but also underwater or in space — or possibly an object that can move from one domain to the next.

The bureau was formed after more than a year of observing unidentified flying objects that military pilots have observed but sometimes been reluctant to report for fear of stigma.

In June 2021, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence reported that there were 144 such encounters between 2004 and 2021, 80 of which were recorded on multiple sensors.

Since then, “we’ve received a lot more reports,” said Sean Kirkpatrick, chief of the anomaly office.

David Martin contributed to this report.
