How Many UFO Sightings in 2023?


In a riveting piece of UFO news, Sean Kirkpatrick, the leading figure at the Pentagon’s Office overseeing Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Investigations, updated senators on ‘How Many UFO Sightings in 2023.’ Addressing the Senate Armed Services Committee, he revealed an uptick in unidentified aerial encounters. Yet, he was quick to ground some of the cosmic curiosities, stating that many of these incidents bore more terrestrial explanations. His All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office has, in fact, pinpointed 163 out of 366 cases as being caused by balloons or similar objects, with another six attributed to drones, birds, or floating debris like plastic bags.

1. In the U.S.

Sightings of unidentified aerial phenomena have increased exponentially in the US over the past year, according to an unclassified report released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). Between March 2021 and August 2022 alone, 509 UAP incidents were recorded by ODNI; without specifying whether these objects are extraterrestrial or terrestrial in origin; some will receive further investigation because they exhibit unusual flight characteristics.

These reports were sent to the Office of Defense National Intelligence’s All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, established last June, with the purpose of investigating incidents with UAPs and working with intelligence agencies to determine their sources. Although sightings of UAPs have increased dramatically over time, Pentagon remains reluctant to associate it with alien lifeforms.

This represents a change from previous government attitudes that sought to discredit UAPs as the work of otherworldly aliens or covert military programs. With the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office and NASA’s UFO science mission emerging as instruments of change for how America approaches UFOs; their newfound skepticism could help dispel conspiracy theories alleging US government concealment of evidence of alien visitors or involvement with Earth affairs – especially significant as more Americans express belief in extraterrestrial life.

2. In the U.K.

Last year, UK citizens witnessed over 1,000 unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Although it can be exciting to witness an upsurge in UFO sightings, the increased interest in aliens may actually pose greater threats to air safety and national security.

Nasa has established a panel to examine UFO sighting reports and assess their validity, in an attempt to explain them away as effectively as possible. According to Sean Kirkpatrick, director of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, approximately 50-100 new reports are filed monthly but only a select few of them remain unexplained.

He further asserts that the US government is more open to discussing UFO-related matters than other nations, which tend to keep their investigations secret. For example, the Pentagon recently declassified three videos showing objects that appear similar to UFOs but remain unknown as yet.

One town in Scotland has become an epicenter for UFO sightings since 1992, with residents seeing over 60,000 unexplained objects since then. Since 1992, Bonnybridge residents have reported over 60,000 sightings since 1992; its local councillor has demanded an investigation be conducted into this phenomenon. Residents have nicknamed it “UFO Triangle”, and its locals have seen everything from triangular UFOs to two “flying discs with pulsating lights” hovering overhead – many believe these UFOs are alien ships come visit from distant corners of space! These sightings have caused quite a sensationalized discussion on social media networks; many speculated these UFOs might represent alien ships coming for visitations by aliens!

3. In Europe

The UK could soon witness its own UFO invasion. After four flying objects of varying shapes and sizes were seen over recent weeks in the US, amateur ufologists on online forums began offering theories as to where these objects may have come from. One was confirmed as a high-altitude Chinese balloon but shot down; authorities have no idea about their other three counterparts nor how they managed to stay airborne for so long.

A recently declassified Pentagon report on unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs, provided some clarity into their meaning. Although some readers might interpret its contents as suggesting alien visitations or extraterrestrial interference with our terrestrial lives, government authors were generally impartial in their analysis and noted that many of 171 UAP incidents examined don’t meet their definition of otherworldly; only a fraction are classified as unexplained; among those remaining cases that “demonstrate unusual flight characteristics” will receive further scrutiny.

Luis Elizondo first gained the Pentagon’s interest in UAPs through his work as a Pentagon contractor, after leaving to form To the Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences with former Blink-182 lead singer Tom DeLonge (To the Stars Academy). Elizondo claims UAP sightings represent threats to air safety which have been concealed by government and need further analysis and explanation by experts like himself. While most sightings are dismissed outright by experts as hoaxes or paranormal phenomenon by some witnesses, Elizondo believes they pose dangers that have been hidden from public awareness by government as they could present threats that need further examination by experts.

4. In Asia

Recent UFO sightings have reignited interest in extraterrestrial life. But experts argue that many who report seeing flying objects may actually be experiencing atmospheric phenomenon or mistaking aeroplanes, weather balloons or stars for alien craft.

This week, a Pentagon committee investigating reports of unidentified aerial phenomena – commonly referred to as UFOs by some – held a public meeting that was livestreamed on social media. While their studies have yet to identify extraterrestrial life forms, the committee has discovered some unusual anomalies.

Members of the panel have noted that online trolling has made conducting their research difficult, with attention from the general public possibly playing a part. Furthermore, this may further compound any stigma attached to researching this topic.

Scientists are also working hard to comprehend what causes such anomalies, with astrophysicist David Spergel serving as chair of a panel studying this matter and noting that only about 2-5% of cases examined so far can truly be classified as anomalous and can’t be explained away by known explanations.

While enthusiasts still look for proof that aliens exist, researchers continue to hunt down evidence of extraterrestrial life. One such group in Japan, known as the International UFO Lab has recently opened its doors to new members; membership fees range from 10,000 yen ($74) for one-year memberships up to 30,000 yen for elite memberships which offer special T-shirts and locally brewed sake as bonuses.
