171 unsolved cases: the Pentagon is having trouble explaining the increase in complaints about UFOs - Voila! Technology

Is this a real record of a UFO? The Pentagon released a record of an Air Force pilot encountering a mysterious object flying at high speed (Pentagon)

Most people have a story about the time they saw something strange hovering in the sky - whether it was strange lights moving too fast to be a plane, or a flying object that suddenly disappeared before their eyes.

Most of these incidents are forgotten or turned into an amusing story, but many such sightings are reported and documented by the US government, undergoing analysis and examination in the hope of finding an explanation.

The US Office of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the Pentagon have now released an 11-page report on 510 reports of sightings Alleged UFOs or unidentified aerial phenomena, most of which were submitted by US military personnel.

A total of 144 of the sightings were already published in a previous report that examined UFO data collected between 2004 and 2017, but the remaining 366 cases were all identified as recently as 2022.

When the new reports were investigated, the authorities were able to solve 195 of them with fairly simple explanations - because sometimes a plane is just a plane.

But how can one explain the sharp increase in reports?

The answer seems to lie in the rise in popularity of drones which contributed to last year's reports and they were found to be the "culprit" in 26 cases.

Another 163 sightings were cataloged as "balloons or balloon-like entities".

A further six cases were deciphered as "airborne" - which means they were either plastic bags or birds.

These explanations reinforce the Pentagon's earlier claims that most recent UFO reports likely stemmed from drones, but that still leaves us with 171 cases still unsolved.

According to the report, the cases that remain "uncharacterized and unattributed" are due to the lack of detailed data. Some of the objects in question were observed moving in unusual or unexplained ways, and therefore remain under investigation, but the US administration is careful not to mention the possibility of alien involvement. The report also He assured that "there were no encounters with atmospheric phenomena confirmed as directly contributing to negative health effects on the viewer."

In conclusion, the report explained that the reporting of unexplained aerial phenomena has increased, adding that AARO and ODNI believe that the increase is due in part to a better understanding of the possible threats that UFOs may represent, both in safety measures against flight hazards Or as intelligence gathering platforms for potential enemies."

Another reason for the increase according to the report is "due to a decrease in stigma around reporting the phenomena."
