US intelligence is looking into more than 500 reports of unidentified flying objects

 US intelligence is studying more than 500 reports of unidentified flying objects, according to a report Thursday, indicating that a large number of these objects are nothing but drones or balloons, while the nature of about a hundred of them is still unknown.

At least 247 unknown atmospheric phenomena have been observed since the last report issued by the US intelligence in June 2021, in which it stated that it was studying at that time 144 reports of unidentified flying objects.

The report pointed out that 119 reports of mysterious flying objects were recorded, which were
discovered from old archives dating back to a period of twenty years, bringing the total number of reports to 510.US intelligence indicated that most of the new phenomena were monitored by elements of the US Navy and the US Air Force.

About 200 of these phenomena met with normal explanations, whether they were just balloons, drones, birds, weather-related phenomena, or plastic bags floating in the air.
But no explanation has yet been given for other objects, according to the intelligence report, which is an unclassified version of the report issued by Congress.
Unexplained objects are under scrutiny from the Pentagon, US intelligence and the US Space Agency (NASA), for fear that they are spying tools belonging to adversary countries.
The report stressed that "air phenomena of an unspecified nature continue to pose a threat to the safety of aviation, and represent a potential threat in terms of intelligence gathering" from hostile countries.
In November 2021, the Pentagon established an office charged with collecting and analyzing information on flying objects, in the face of increasing pressure from Congress in this regard.
Washington is concerned about China's spying capabilities through the use of drones or other flying objects.
"We take reports of breaches of our land, sea and air space very seriously, and we analyze each one," Pentagon spokesman Gen. Pat Ryder said in a statement Thursday.
