As part of the study, scientists have taken several months to look into the reports of UAP over the past 27 years.
There were around 800 reported sightings.
According to Dr Sean Kirkpatrick, director of the US Department of Defence’s All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), UFOs are almost becoming an everyday occurrence on earth.
“We see these all over the world, and we see these making very interesting apparent maneuvers,” he said.
“While we are still looking at it, I don’t have any more data other than that. Being able to come to some conclusion is going to take time, until we can get better-resolved data on similar objects that we can then do a larger analysis on.”
He added that the report revealed that the Pentagon now receives between 50 and 100 monthly reports.
However, only two to five per cent of these are ‘really anomalous’.
In order to confirm the existence of extraterrestrial life, it will take some damning evidence, according to astrophysicist David Spergel, chair of the study group.
“To make the claim that we’ve seen something that is evidence of non-human intelligence, it would require extraordinary evidence,” he said.
“And we have not seen that. I think that’s important to make clear.”
He shared that the data from the report was ‘insufficient to provide conclusive evidence about the nature and origin of every UAP event’.
And undertaking the task of finding UAP has been anything but easy.
Dan Evans, the NASA official assigned to the committee, said the government agency had fallen victim to online abuse and harassment during the investigation.
He noted that several panelists had been ‘subjected to online abuse due to their decision to participate on this panel’ and that NASA’s security was actively addressing this issue.
Dr Nicola Fox, NASA Science Mission Directorate associate administrator, said that NASA doesn’t tolerate abuse and it could significantly harm the study.
“Harassment only leads to further stigmatization of the UAP field, significantly hindering scientific progress and discouraging others to study this important subject matter,” she said.
However, NASA added this won’t be the only meeting on UAP, as they will also hold another public meeting in July to discuss their nine-month study.
