That UAP/UFO Report Is Out. No Aliens. Yawn.

Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, DNI

"The UAP documented in this limited dataset demonstrate an array of aerial behaviors, reinforcing the possibility there are multiple types of UAP requiring different explanations. Our analysis of the data supports the construct that if and when individual UAP incidents are resolved they will fall into one of five potential explanatory categories: airborne clutter, natural atmospheric phenomena, USG or industry developmental programs, foreign adversary systems, and a catchall "other" bin. With the exception of the one instance where we determined with high confidence that the reported UAP was airborne clutter, specifically a deflating balloon, we currently lack sufficient information in our dataset to attribute incidents to specific explanations."

Keith's note: They waited until late on a Friday afternoon to dump this report. Nothing to see here. Move along.

The UAP Story: The SETI Institute Weighs In

"The observations to be discussed in the report - photographic, witness testimony, and radar - are sometimes conflated with a research discipline known as SETI (the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence). The latter involves looking for non-natural radio or light signals coming from deep space, as well as observations that might uncover non-natural phenomena (so-called "technosignatures") in the course of conventional astronomical research. Since the UAP analysis and SETI research have a region of overlap - the possibility of alien beings - there is frequent confusion by the public and media regarding the degree to which they are similar. We hope to mitigate this lack of understanding by pointing out differences in the assumptions, data, and verification methodologies for both UAPs and SETI."
