What, exactly, is out there?

The Department of Defense has formed a task force that seeks to answer that question.

Deputy Defense Secretary  David L. Norquist has greenlighted the formation of an Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force (UAPTF) on Aug. 4.

The Department of the Navy, under the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, will lead the UAPTF, according to a DoD release.

Instead of COVID or Crozier updates, the Navy gave us UFOs

 “The Department of Defense established the UAPTF to improve its understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins of UAPs,” the release states. “The mission of the task force is to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security.”

Wake up and smell the UFOs!  Navy finally drafts reporting guidelines

The DoD takes any “incursions by unauthorized aircraft into our training ranges or designated airspace very seriously and examines each report.” continues the release.

That examination includes incursions that are initially reported as unidentified aerial phenomena when the observer cannot immediately identify what he or she is observing.
