U.S. intelligence officials have found no evidence that a series of unidentified aerial phenomena observed by Navy aviators in recent years were alien spacecraft, but the sightings remain unexplained in a highly anticipated government report, The New York Times reported on Thursday.

The newspaper, citing senior Biden administration officials briefed ahead of the report’s release to Congress later this month, also said the report found that the vast majority of incidents documented over the past two decades did not originate from any American military or other advanced U.S. government technology.


Many of the 120-plus sightings reviewed in the classified intelligence study were from U.S. Navy personnel. But one unnamed senior U.S. official briefed on the report told the Times there was concern among American intelligence and military officials that China or Russia could be experimenting with hypersonic technology, perhaps accounting for some of the aerial phenomena in question.

An unclassified version of the report expected to be submitted to Congress by June 25 will present few other conclusions, the newspaper said.

Senior U.S. officials cited in the Times article said the report’s ambiguity meant that the government was unable to definitively rule out theories that the unidentified phenomena might have been extraterrestrial in nature.

Pentagon officials have publicly acknowledged that a special Defense Department body called the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force was established in the past few years to examine military reports of “incursions” into restricted airspace and training ranges.

U.S. defense officials have said such incidents are of a concern to Pentagon and intelligence agencies because of their national security implications.

Responding to Reuters’ questions about the forthcoming task force report requested by Congress, Pentagon spokeswoman Sue Gough said in an email reply earlier on Thursday: “We do not publicly discuss the details of the UAP observations, the task force or examinations.”
