Tired of searching the entire internet for your UFO news? Well, those days could soon be a thing of the past.
On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Defense announced the launch of the (somewhat dystopian-sounding) All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) website — essentially a convenient place to post newly declassified information related to Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) that for us essentially UFOs are cool kids).
NASA is finally talking to Americans about UFOs. Here’s what they said.
In short, all UFO information that is released will be displayed there. The site already hosts a range of “official UAP videos,” ranging from encounters with the crew of a US Navy jet to footage from the cockpit of a fighter jet. It is worth noting that there are different categories for the videos uploaded on the site. Some of these are “unresolved,” meaning AARO currently has no explanation for them; others are “unclassified” but have possible explanations, such as “the object is likely an airliner and the trailing cavitation is a sensor artifact resulting from video compression.”
“Our team of experts is leading the U.S. government’s effort to address Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) with a rigorous scientific framework and a data-driven approach,” said Director Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick on the website.
“Since its inception in July 2022, AARO has taken significant steps to improve data collection, standardize reporting requirements, and mitigate the potential security threats posed by UAP. We look forward to using this website to update the public regularly on AARO’s work and findings, and to provide a mechanism for EAP reporting.”
This new website is in line with the US government’s sudden decision to educate the public more about UFOs. A few months ago, as a show of transparency, NASA televised a public meeting of its UAP team, which included former astronaut Scott Kelly. Last year, the organization also committed to a nine-month UFO study.
