NASA UAP Report Finds No Evidence of 'Extraterrestrial Origin' Pt -2


"There is more to learn" summarized the 2021 NASA report. The 2022 report suggested no evidence that UAP have an extraterrestrial origin, "but we don't know what these UAP are..."

UAP was adopted by the U.S. Department of Defense as a means to include unidentifiable objects/events in various locations: air, space, underwater, and a combination. 

The 2022 report released this month details UAP statistics:

"Recently, the DoD began encouraging military aviators to disclose anomalies they encountered, which resulted in a significant increase in UAP reports: 

Between March 5, 2021, and August 30, 2022, DoD received a total of 247 new UAP reports, according to an analysis published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI)
in 2022. 

In contrast, 263 reports had been filed in the 17 years prior to March 2021. 

Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick reported at this panel’s public meeting that AARO has now collected more than 800 reported events. This includes the addition of data from the FAA. AARO and ODNI assess that the observed increase in the reporting rate is partially due to a  better understanding of the possible threats that UAP may represent—either as flight safety hazards or as potential
adversary collection platforms. This is partially due to reduced stigma surrounding UAP reporting"

A 2021 Senate request for a report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) detailing the observations of the UAPTF, the FBI and the Office of Naval Intelligence; included eight parameters:

6. Identification of potential aerospace or other threats posed by the UAP to national
security, and an assessment of whether this UAP activity may be attributed to one or
more foreign adversaries;
7. Identification of any incidents or patterns that indicate a potential adversary, have
achieved breakthrough aerospace capabilities that could put U.S. strategic or
conventional forces at risk; and
8. Recommendations regarding increased collection of data, enhanced research and
development, additional funding, and other resources.

June 25, 2021 "Preliminary Assessment:
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena" 

Excerpt from the Executive Summary 

UAP clearly pose a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to U.S. national security.
Safety concerns primarily center on aviators contending with an increasingly cluttered air
domain. UAP would also represent a national security challenge if they are foreign adversary
collection platforms or provide evidence a potential adversary has developed either a
breakthrough or disruptive technology.


Foreign Adversary Systems: Some UAP may be technologies deployed by China, Russia,
another nation, or a non-governmental entity.

Conversely: Speaking at a much anticipated 10am 9/14/23 media briefing, NASA administrator Bill Nelson said: "The top takeaway from the study is that there is a lot more to learn...The NASA independent study team did not find any evidence that UAP have an extraterrestrial origin, but we don't know what these UAP are."

The UAP Independent Study Team was established in 2022 as a nine-month evaluation of unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs at which time NASA issued a cautionary statement of their anticipated conclusion: "There is no evidence UAPs are extra-terrestrial in origin" NASA to Set Up Independent Study on Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena | NASA

  • Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force - 2020. By June 2021 Congress mandated a report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) detailing the observations of the UAPTF, the FBI and the Office of Naval Intelligence; specifically144 UFO encounters documented by U.S. government sensors. The focus being sightings by Navy pilots between November 2004 and March 2021. Prelimary-Assessment-UAP-20210625.pdf (
