A newly released unclassified version of the U.S. Intelligence Service’s report shows that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) has received a total of 510 reports of unexplained aerial phenomena (UAPs) previously classified as UFOs. Most of them were initially classified as drones or balloons, but 171 require specific analysis.

In a report by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence USA (ODNI), prepared jointly with a special cell in Pentagons – AARO (All Domains Anomaly Explanation Office), there has been an increase in the number of reported cases since the June 2021 release of the first ever document on unexplained aerial phenomena (UAP/UFOs). After the publication of that report, an additional 247 phenomena were reported and another 119 were discovered from previous years that were not included in the first list.


As the authors wrote, more than half of the cases were described as showing no unique features, including 26 were considered drones, 163 balloons and six aerial debris. Some of the reported phenomena were not documented with data of sufficient quality to determine their origin. Nevertheless, 171 other cases were considered to require special consideration.

‘Some of these unspecified UAPs appear to demonstrate unusual flight characteristics or capabilities and require further analysis,’ the paper reads. Details of the phenomena were to be included in the classified version of the report.

Most cases around military facilities

Most cases have been observed in protected airspace around military installations, although the authors acknowledge that this may be due to the accumulation of sensors and measurement tools in these areas. Some of them may also be the result of incorrect readings or hardware failure.

“The security of our troops, bases and installations, and the protection of U.S. operations on land, air, sea and space are paramount. We take reports of intrusions into our designated air, land and sea spaces seriously and are investigating each one,” Pentagon spokesman Gen. Pat Ryder said.
