The US Pentagon reported this Wednesday that between August 2022 and April 2023 documented a total of 274 UFOs or unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), with the aim of analyzing and understanding the potential threats they pose to the country’s security.
Through a statement, the spokesperson Pat Ryder explained that on Tuesday the Department of Defense and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence delivered the Annual Report on UAP to Congress, as required by the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
It includes the sighting reports between August 31, 2022 to April 30, 2023, as well as any sightings reported in previous periods that were not included in a previous report.
The Department of Defense’s All Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) received a total of 291 UAP reports in this period, of which 274 occurred during this period and another 17 that occurred between 2019 and 2022.
“The safety of our service personnel, our bases and facilities, and protecting the security of U.S. operations on land, in the sky, at sea and in space are paramount,” Ryder said, adding that The United States takes itself very “seriously” reports of incursions into its air, land or sea space.
