A new Department of Defense document reveals what the Average Joe needs to know about the Average UFO.
Truthers will be happy to know the typical UFO reported to authorities is white, round, often translucent and usually noted to be spherical or orb-like, according to the document.
The garden variety craft ranges in size between three and 13 feet and glides through the air at 10,000 to 30,000 feet, the DOD says.
Velocity-wise, the UFOs seen the most range from not moving at all to Mach 2, which is just over 1,500 miles per hour and twice the speed of sound, officials said.
“No thermal exhaust” was detected by the UFO spotters, suggesting the crafts which move at significant speeds may have other means of propulsion.
The findings are based on the profiles from reported sightings between 1996 and 2023 and posted to the new website, AARO, or All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, which boasts a “team of experts” leading the U.S. government’s efforts to address [the UFOs] “using a rigorous scientific framework and a data-driven approach.”
The dedicated UFO office under the Department of Defense debuted in July 2022.
Japan has become one of the world’s biggest “hot spots” to see a UFO, according to the newly declassified Pentagon documents dating back to 1996.
Even bold-faced names are sharing their extraterrestrial experiences, Jets superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers made headlines this week when he revisited his 2005 close encounter on HBO’s “Hard Knocks.”
On Tuesday’s fifth and final episode, Rodgers retold a story detailing a run-in with a possible alien-like object with Steve Levy — his former teammate at Cal — in 2005, a few months before he was taken by the Packers in the first round of the draft.
“Up in the clouds, we saw this tremendously large object moving in the sky. It was like a scene out of ‘Independence Day’ when the ships are coming into the atmosphere and creating this explosion-type fire in the sky,” Rodgers said.
