UFO report would not level to extraterrestrials however exhibits why we want Males in Black
Something should be clarified right away. Whether they are called UFOs or UAPs, they are very, very real. People, including members of the armed forces, are constantly seeing things in the sky that they cannot identify. That’s the truth.
As the ODNI report makes clear, most of the reports they examined “likely depict physical objects as the majority of UAPs have been registered across multiple sensors including radar, infrared, electro-optical, weapon tracers and visual observation”.
The report also states that some of the objects involved had unusual aspects of flight, including the ability to travel at exceptional speed, maneuver more abruptly than known aircraft, or transition from air to water without apparent slowing down. However, the report notes that there are really very few “high quality” observations, although all of the detailed reports were from military observers.
Some UAPs appeared to remain stationary in high winds, to move upwind, to maneuver abruptly, or to move at considerable speed with no apparent propulsion means.
In total, they looked at 144 reports from government sources. Of these reports, 80 included a detection with more than one sensor type. That is, they were either visible to both observers and cameras, or were seen on radar and infrared, or some other combination of the above. This makes it difficult to dismiss these reports as just visual effects or software errors in a single instrument. However, this does not absolve them from simple misinterpretations. For example, of the three videos that received a lot of publicity over the past year, the video showing “pyramids” in flight are almost certainly the lights of commercial aircraft seen through infrared cameras, which are an unusual form of lens flare produce. Observers on the ground also saw these lights, but as lights, not the objects that appeared to be present in the video.
In any case, it is clear that the ODNI and other government agencies are taking these sightings seriously because they must be taken seriously. As the report notes, whatever you call them, whatever the source, these sightings disrupt training and other military maneuvers, as well as civil aviation. At least the safety of pilots and crews requires further investigation. At worst, if these actions, as the report calls them, “fforeign opposing systems “, then this situation is bad.
The ODNI makes it clear that “regardless of the outcome, UAP is clearly a problem of flight safety and can pose a challenge to US national security”.
For this reason alone, it is important that they continue to be taken seriously. This report may disappoint the public as it neither admits that the secret government is frolicking with aliens nor provides a terrible warning of hidden Nazi moonbases, but its real message shouldn’t be lost in finding aliens: UAPs are a real thing and a real threat.
So what are we doing about it? It would be nice to suggest that some critical breakthroughs in radar or cameras could provide all the documentation we have ever wanted, and there is no doubt that improved instrumentation is a big part of what drives these reports. New technologies that are working on the verge of performance are also likely to be a source of many false reports.
But the report spells the greatest thing that could be done to help. We need: “cconstant consolidation of reports from across the federal government, standardized reporting, increased collection and analysis, and a streamlined process to match all of these reports with a wide range of relevant US government data.a more sophisticated analysis of UAP that is likely to deepen our understanding. “
The report makes it clear that these steps are “resource intensive” and “would require additional investment”.
Standardize reporting, consolidate data and deepen analysis
These are also steps that are unlikely to ever be taken seriously with existing ones Agencies. Navy pilots may report UAPs, but the Navy is unlikely to hire their top investigators to pursue them full-time. The same applies to the air force and other branches of the military, as well as to existing secret services.
What is really needed is an agency or department that can cut red tape and that is uniquely empowered to investigate this one phenomenon throughout the government as well as among the civilian population. Such an agency would not need mesmerizing pens or jet-powered cars. You would need consistent coverage, permission to watch military programs, and a straightforward ability to follow those observations no matter how many people laugh.
And remember: the suit would look great on you.
