What does UAP mean and how is it different from a UFO?

THERE'S been lots of talk about UFOs recently but you may have also seen the term 'UAP' cropping up more often.

UAP is actually a new term for UFO that is supposed to have less of a stigma attached.

What does UAP mean?

UAP stands for 'Unidentified Aerial Phenomena'.

UFO stands for 'Unidentified Flying Object'

Many experts in the field found UFO was being ridiculed and reports were not being taken seriously.

It's thought UAP is a more professional term and it's becoming increasingly more common as the US begins to seriously discuss UFO/UAP sightings.

The United States Office of Naval Intelligence now has a Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) program.

It collects reported sightings of mysterious flying objects.

UAP doesn't necessarily have to refer to a suspected 'alien craft' sighting.

Some people think using the term UAP will get sightings taken more seriously.

It's thought over 90% of UFO sightings have a reasonable explanation

However, recent footage released by the pentagon of strange flying objects is still baffling experts.

Fermi Paradox – what is it?
