The Facts

UAPs – “now what I want is facts!”

At we pride ourselves on our advice being measured, appropriate and based on facts. After that comes reasonable supposition. Everything else is fantasy or fabrication.

When it comes to introducing a new person to the UAP topic, it can be helpful to point to key facts that suggest there is substance to the UAP mystery. Here are four stone-cold pieces of evidence that it is difficult for even the most hardened sceptic to deny.

Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena

1. There are many UAP cases that cannot be explained by the official Defense-department investigation team

The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) was established in 2020 within theOffice of Naval Intelligencewith the remit to “standardize collection and reporting of sightings of UFOs.”  It issued a preliminary report in 2021 that, while inconclusive, noted that 143 of 144 reported cases of UAPs could not be explained. (The report is here: Prelimary-Assessment-UAP-20210625.pdf (

2. There are Navy videos of airborne craft carrying out maneuverers at speeds and with changes of direction that are impossible to attribute to human technology.  They have been confirmed as genuine by the Pentagon

The 2017 New York Times article (Cooper, Kean, Blumenthal, December 2017) Publication was accompanied by two videos (termed ‘FLIR’ and ‘GIMBAL’) showing encounters by jets from the USS Nimitz and USS Theodore Roosevelt with unusually shaped, fast-moving airborne ‘craft’.  The Washington Post also published a video of a similar encounter, titled ‘GOFAST’.  On 27th April 2020, the Pentagon formally released the three videos, confirming their authenticity.  The videos are available here: UFO videos have been officially released by Pentagon | CNN Politics


3. The All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) has shared videos of metallic spheres flying with no visible means of propulsion.

In an open hearing on Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena before the Senate Armed Services Committee on April 19, Dr Sean Kirkpatrick, director of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), shared a video that depicts an apparent silver, orb-like object cross the sensor’s field of view.  The video is available here: DVIDS – Video – Middle East Object (

4. David Grusch’s evidence, given under oath, was found to be “credible and urgent” by the intelligence community’s Inspector General (ICIG)

Former Intelligence Officer David Grusch gave evidence to the House of Representatives Oversight Committee on 26th July in which he repeated claims that the US Government has a secret crash retrieval program and has recovered alien bodies.  Behind this is many hours of testimony to the ICIG, who has also spoken to others with first-hand experience of alien craft who have confirmed the claims.  Mr Grusch’s interview with Ross Coulthart for NewsNation is here:

We are not saying that these four pieces of evidence prove the existence alien craft, non-human intelligence or secret programs. But they do strongly suggest that there are things in the sky (and in space and in the oceans) that we cannot explain and have characteristics that are far beyond current human technological capabilities. An interest in UAPs is therefore, we assert, highly legitimate, along with a wish for there to be further investigations to find out more.


Now what I want is, Facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts alone are wanted in life

We welcome comments on the facts and evidence presented, along with suggestions for additional sources of information that also have a high level of credibility around the UAP topic.
