Pentagon Opens a New Office for Investigating UFO Sightings

Back in May, we found out about the first public hearing in 50 years taking place on the subject of UFO sightings. The US government now seems to be getting serious when it comes to spotting UFOs or UAPs, and you are free to call them by either one of those terms.

The Pentagon will open the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), meaning a new office that will be aimed only at investigating UFO sightings. The information comes from the US Department of Defence (DOD).

The announcement of the DOD is crystal clear, without any room for misinterpretation:

The mission of the AARO will be to synchronize efforts across the Department of Defense, and with other U.S. federal departments and agencies, to detect, identify and attribute objects of interest in, on or near military installations, operating areas, training areas, special use airspace and other areas of interest, and, as necessary, to mitigate any associated threats to safety of operations and national security. This includes anomalous, unidentified space, airborne, submerged and transmedium objects.

Spotting UFOs in the sky doesn’t represent anything unusual, as many people have reported seeing such a phenomenon at least once in life. However, it’s important to keep in mind that any object has the potential to be called a UFO until its identity is revealed. In other words, you shouldn’t immediately assume that aliens are visiting Earth to tell us the secrets of eternal youth if you hear the news that a UFO was just spotted in your city.

While UFO stands for Unidentified Flying Object, the term “UAP” practically means the same thing, but in another form: Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon.
