US Army sighted “hundreds of UFOs” in 2022, according to the Pentagon

The Pentagon office in charge of UFO sightings has received “hundreds of new reports” this year.


The All Domains Anomaly Resolution Office ( AARO ), created by the Pentagon to study UFO sightings , has received “hundreds of new reports” during 2022.

This was reported by the director of the unit, Sean Kirkpatrick, who also stressed that these unidentified devices are known as Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena ( UAP ), without attributing extraterrestrial meaning to them.

Research work

Kirkpatrick told the AP that there were “more reports this year than in previous years.” Just for comparison, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence revealed between 2004 and 2021 there were a total of 144 sightings.

The AARO was created with the purpose of “destigmatizing” sightings by Army personnel, who feared being frowned upon when reporting them.

The Pentagon also seeks to clarify the origin of these devices, which move between the sky, water and space in a way never seen before. It is about finding out if they belong to other countries and how many risks they cause to national security.

Many times, these ” UFOs ” are confused with drones or even weather balloons.

The Navy marked a before and after in these investigations after, in 2020, they published three declassified videos in which lights and unidentified flying devices are observed.

The US government has become more open to these discussions, even holding its first full session of Parliament on it.
