No evidence of UFOs in recent Pentagon report
Without delivering definitive conclusions, a greater emphasis was placed on airspace safety.

There were 510 reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) received by the United States government last year, sightings that, in addition to raising questions, have increased various concerns about national security because several of these objects were reported flying over sensitive military airspace.
A recently declassified report from the Pentagon does not offer proof of the existence of extraterrestrial life, but the responsible authorities did highlight the presence of a possible threat.
The Pentagon stressed that while it cannot offer a reasonable explanation for unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), its detailed analysis found that UFOs have unusual flight characteristics that require further study.
Pentagon announces a new division
The All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, created exclusively to receive and analyze all reports of unidentified phenomena, many of which have been reported by military pilots, was opened by the Pentagon last year.
Working hand-in-hand with the other intelligence agencies to further assess such episodes, the new office must report any movement or notification of objects that may indicate that a potential adversary has new technology or capabilities.
Reports from the Pentagon's Office of Anomalies must also include any unidentified objects moving underwater, in the air, in space, or anything moving between those domains, posing a new threat.
The Pentagon also pointed out that thanks to its efforts to de-stigmatize the reports and emphasize that the objects can pose a threat, the number grew significantly.
The Department of Defense, for its part, under pressure from Congress to investigate the so-called UFOs, has actively encouraged pilots and other personnel to report unexplained sightings.

About the report
The 510 objects noted in the report include 144 previously reported objects and 366 new episodes.
For both old and new cases, the analysis determined that most exhibit "unremarkable features" and could be characterized as unmanned aircraft systems or balloon-like objects.
A classified version of the report takes into account the number of such objects that were sighted near places where nuclear power plants operate or where nuclear weapons are stored.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence also highlights that these events pose a serious threat to national security, as they could be the product of information-gathering activity by adversaries.
