The Pentagon has launched a new UFO website called aaro.mil to be “fully” transparent with the community on UFOs. Lately, rumors and leaks about aliens have surfaced, and the people wanted to hear answers from the officials. The Pentagon aims to solve that problem with this new website.
The Defense Department has introduced a new website aimed at being a central hub for declassified information concerning unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs), often referred to as UFOs. This website is designed to provide easy access to publicly available records related to UFOs and shed light on the work of a recently established office created by Congress last year.
This office’s purpose is to coordinate efforts across various federal agencies to detect and identify what the Pentagon officially calls unidentified anomalous phenomena.
During a press conference, Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder, the Pentagon’s press secretary, stated that the website’s launch is a significant step in ensuring that the public can access information and insight into UAPs. The website currently includes a few videos, some labeled as “unresolved” or “unclassified,” along with brief descriptions explaining assessments by the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, which the National Defense Authorization Act established.
The website will continue to expand with declassified photos and videos related to resolved UAP cases. It will also provide links to reports, transcripts, and other resources, such as sites for tracking aircraft, balloons, and satellites.
The Pentagon wants to be more transparent with the new UFO website, aaro.mil
The Pentagon intends to update the website to include a tool for current and former U.S. government employees, service members, and contractors to submit reports via a secure method, expected in the fall. Furthermore, a tool for the public to file similar reports will be announced in the coming months.
In a press briefing, spokesperson Pat Ryder announced that the Defense Department is launching the website www.aaro.mil in collaboration with the All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO). This website intends to inform the public about the Defense Department’s endeavors to comprehend and resolve unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs).
The Pentagon emphasizes its commitment to transparency and aims to share information regarding the office’s work on UAPs with the American people by reviewing facts and declassifying information when possible.
“This fall, consistent with Section 1673 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023, AARO will launch a secure reporting tool on the website to enable current and former U.S. government employees, service members, or contractors with direct knowledge of U.S. government programs or activities to contact AARO directly to make a report. The department is conducting its final reviews to ensure the reporting mechanism complies with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Whistleblower Protections Enhancement Act of 2012, the Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002 (No FEAR Act), and the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. In the interim, current U.S. service members, U.S. government employees, and civil aviators are encouraged to continue to use the existing reporting mechanisms available to them through their organizations. A mechanism for members of the general public to make reports will be announced in coming months,” the Pentagon said in the official announcement.

Back in July, David Grusch, a former Air Force intelligence official, made a statement indicating that the U.S. government has unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs) in its possession. More recently, lawmakers have called for the intelligence community to share information about alleged secret programs related to recovering crashed UFOs and conducting technological reverse engineering.
