>>>"All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office"
Being "All-domain" I expect they also have investigated fairies at the bottom of the garden, pink elephants, and things that go bump in the night.
Money well spent.
The Pentagon's recently-established All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) - set up to investigate unidentified flying objects - has not found any evidence of aliens in its analysis, its director has said. At hearings (one open and one closed) held by the Senate Armed Services Committee's Subcommittee on Emerging Threats …
“ AARO was launched last year with the goal of working together with different defense and intelligence agencies to detect and identify objects operating in US airspace near sensitive areas, like government or military bases, that could threaten national security.”
So, balloon spotters then??
Of course there are UFOs. If I see a flying object I can't identify it's unidentifiable, at least by me. That's just plain English and common sense.
If you say something's unidentifiable to you and then proceed to hang an evidence-free identification onto it then you're just talking nonsense.
That is part of the reason that they aren't Unidentified Flying Objects anymore, they are now called Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena.
More babble, less nonsense. They no longer assume "flying", nor "object".
The new term probably gives somebody, somewhere, the warm fuzzys. How cute.
Other than that, not much has changed since Project Blue Book.
The evidence for unidentified aerial phenomenae is pretty good, but jumping to "got to be aliens" is a weird explanation. I expect we'll find some weird physical phenomenon that explains many of them - quite possibly some kind of temperature or air-current inversion that creates mirage/reflections of existing aircraft in weird locations.
Even so, I quite like a world with a few mysteries in it, though I guess we've still got the question of why gaffa tape sparks in the dark.
