Astronomers have observed dozens of objects that “cannot be scientifically identified”, ie UFOs.
The skies of kyiv are littered with unidentified flying objects (UFOs), according to a new report from the Main Astronomical Observatory of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
Of course, given that Russia and Ukraine have been locked in a months-long war that relies heavily on planes and drones, it is likely that many of these alleged UFOs are military tools that appear too fleetingly to be identified, one agency has speculated. US intelligence has speculated.
Published in the arXiv preprints database, the yet-to-be-peer-reviewed report outlines recent steps Ukrainian astronomers have taken to monitor fast-moving, low-visibility objects in the daytime sky over kyiv and towns. from the surroundings.
Using specially calibrated cameras at two weather stations in kyiv and Vinarivka, a town about 120 kilometers to the south, astronomers observed dozens of objects “that cannot be scientifically identified as known natural phenomena,” according to the report.
Government agencies tend to refer to such objects as UAPs, short for “unidentified aerial phenomena.”
“We observed a significant number of objects whose nature is unclear,” the team wrote.
“We see them everywhere.”
The researchers divided their FAN observations into two categories: “cosmic” and “ghosts.”
According to the report, cosmics are luminous objects brighter than the background sky.
These objects are designated by bird names — such as “swift,” “hawk,” and “eagle” — and have been observed flying solo and in “squadrons,” the team wrote.
Ghosts, by contrast, are dark objects that often appear “completely black,” as if absorbing all light that falls on them, the team added.
By comparing observations from the two participating observatories, the researchers estimated that the ghosts are between 3 and 12 meters wide and can travel at speeds of up to 53,000 km/h.
By comparison, an intercontinental ballistic missile can reach speeds of up to 15,000 mph, according to the Center for Weapons Control and Non-Proliferation. The researchers do not speculate on what these UFOs may be.
Rather, his article focuses on the methods and calculations used to detect the objects.
However, according to a 2021 report by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), it is likely that at least some UFOs are “technologies deployed by China, Russia, another nation, or a non-governmental entity.”
Given the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, which began in February 2022, it is reasonable to suspect that some PAUs described in the new report may be related to foreign military or surveillance technologies.
According to the ODNI report, other possible explanations for the FANI include “aerial disorder,” such as birds and balloons; atmospheric phenomena, such as ice crystals; or classified government projects.
Not the US reports.
nor do the reports from Ukraine raise the possibility of extraterrestrial visitors.
The US government
The US has openly renewed its interest in NIAF research since 2017, when several videos taken by US Air Force aircraft
Navy aircraft leaked to the media.
The now famous videos showed unidentified aircraft moving in seemingly impossible ways, without any explanation.
The government later declassified the footage and recently revealed that more military footage of UAP encounters exists, though the Department of Defense (DOD) will not release it due to “national security concerns.”
Earlier this year, Congress approved funding for the DOD to open a new office focused solely on handling reports of UFO sightings by the US military.
The authors of the new Ukrainian UAP report added that the country\’s National Academy of Sciences is interested in contributing to this ongoing research.
