US government says it received over 200 reports of UFOs/UAPs in last 8 months

The Pentagon announced that there have been more than 270 reports of unidentified anomalous phenomena, known as UAPs or UFOs, reported to the U.S. government in the past eight months.

According to the unclassified report released Tuesday by the Department of Defense, since Aug. 31, 2022 to April 30, 2023, there were 274 new reports made to the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, which leads the government’s efforts documenting and analyzing reports of UFOs/UAPs. 

Many of the reports it receives are made by members of the military and commercial pilots, the DOD noted.

The agency also began looking into 17 sightings that happened between 2019 and 2022 that hadn’t been included in earlier reports. 

As of April 30, the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office had received 801 UFO reports.

“The safety of our service personnel, our bases and installations, and the protection of U.S. operations security on land, in the skies, seas, and space are paramount,” Ryder said. “We take reports of incursions into our designated space, land, sea, or airspaces seriously and examine each one.”
