The US government has been inundated with hundreds of UFO encounter reports over the past year, and about half of them remain unexplained, according to an unclassified document released by the Pentagon (opens in a new tab) Thursday (January 12).

The 11-page report, filed by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), reveals that the Pentagon has listed a total of 510 reports of alleged sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) – or unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), as the government prefers to call them – largely filed by US military personnel. Of those cases, 366 were newly identified in 2022, while the remaining 144 were identified in a previous ODNI report that reviewed UFO data compiled between 2004 and 2017.
