Pentagon Report Suggests Alien Craft Could Be Releasing Probes in Our Solar System

A recent draft research report from Pentagon officials suggests that aliens could be visiting our solar system and releasing smaller probes, similar to the missions conducted by NASA when studying other planets. The report, authored by Sean Kirkpatrick, the director of the Pentagon's All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), and Abraham Loeb, chairman of Harvard University's astronomy department, was released on March 7 and focuses on the physical constraints of unidentified aerial phenomena.
According to the report, an artificial interstellar object could potentially be a "parent craft" that releases numerous small probes during its close passage to Earth. The smaller probes, described as "dandelion seeds," could be separated from the parent craft by the tidal gravitational force of the Sun or by a maneuvering capability. The AARO, established in July 2022, is responsible for tracking objects in the sky, underwater, and in space.
In 2005, Congress tasked NASA with finding 90% of all objects near Earth larger than 140 meters, resulting in the development of Pan-STARRS telescopes. On October 19, 2017, the Pan-STARRS detected an unusual interstellar object, later named 'Oumuamua, which appeared to be artificial. The object was cigar-shaped, appeared flat, and was propelled away from the sun without showing a cometary tail.
The report also mentioned the discovery of another object three years later, NASA's rocket booster 2020 SO, which had no cometary trail. Six months before 'Oumuamua made its closest approach to Earth, a meter-sized interstellar meteor, IM2, crashed on earth and exhibited a similar speed relative to the Sun and an identical shape to 'Oumuamua.
The authors of the report suggest that astronomers would not be able to notice the spray of mini probes released by the parent craft, as they do not reflect enough sunlight for existing survey telescopes to detect them. This research paper comes amid heightened scrutiny over unidentified flying objects over the US, including the recent incident where a Chinese spy balloon was shot down after traversing across the US skies.
This news seems bizarre, for sure. To be honest, I struggled with whether to publish this story. However, the contents of the story are true, and the draft report from US Defense officials speaks for itself. I am not subscribing to the belief that some alien mothership may be sending probes to our planet, but I am not certain I also cannot counter what the experts in Space and Defense are suggesting. I bring these facts to you, for you to do with them what you will. One thing is for sure, it absolutely is an interesting time to be alive!
