Official Pentagon report suggests an alien mothership could send UFOs to spy on Earth

Aliens could be coming to Earth and, in fact, may already be in our solar system, according to a new draft report from the Pentagon.
The document was published by director of the Pentagon’s All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) Sean Kirkpatrick and Harvard University astronomy department chairman Abraham Loeb.
It says we may soon see extraterrestrial life visiting Earth via smaller, probe-like spaceships.
No, not that sort of probing. Think more like smaller explorative vessels.
The draft document focuses on the physical constraints of 'unidentified aerial phenomena' (UAP) - so, in other words, spaceships and other foreign celestial objects.
"An artificial interstellar object could potentially be a parent craft that releases many small probes during its close passage to Earth, an operational construct not too dissimilar from NASA missions," the report reads.
"These ‘dandelion seeds’ could be separated from the parent craft by the tidal gravitational force of the Sun or by a maneuvering capability."
The AARO, established in July 2022, is a branch of the Pentagon that is responsible for tracking unidentified objects in the sky, underwater, or in the air and space.
Or, a combination of those. Or all three. After all, who knows what these funky space dudes get up to these days.
Anyway, back to the cool UFO paper.
In their document, Kirkpatrick and Loeb explain that recent observations of UAP have so far defied the laws of physics.
So, take that Issac Newton, you apple-loving jerk.
They explained that 'the friction of UAP with the surrounding air or water is expected to generate a bright optical fireball, ionization shell, and tail — implying radio signatures'.
However, the UAPs they analyzed exhibited no such factors.
Naturally, being men of academia and science, the draft report indicated the pair had delved deeper and did not take the first anomaly they discovered as proof of alien life.
They did admit that this may be down to the constraints of our Earthly devices and technology.
So, basically, the instruments we have simply aren't sensitive enough to get a full picture of what is going on out in the big black beyond.
"The lack of all these signatures could imply inaccurate distance measurements (and hence derived velocity) for single site sensors without a range gate capability," the pair wrote.
"Typical UAP sightings are too far away to get a highly resolved image of the object and determination of the object's motion is limited by the lack of range data."
Similar data harks back to another UAP incident from a time before the AARO was founded.
Back in 2017, NASA's Pan-STARRS telescopes in Hawaii detected an unusual interstellar object in the sky.
The object was cigar-shaped, appeared flat, and was propelled away from the sun without showing a cometary tail.
This led scientists to believe it was of an artificial origin.
Interestingly enough, the object was later named ‘Oumuamua' which means 'scout' in Hawaiian.
