Strange UFOs Over Ukraine, Harvard Astronomer Finally Has An Explanation
Avi Loeb, who leads a team of scientists searching for evidence of a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ technology on Earth and in our solar system, has reasoned that scientists observed artillery shells and that a war zone is not the best setting to look for U̳F̳O̳s. We will discuss what could the U̳F̳O̳s Over Ukraine actually be.
Nearly a month ago, Ukrainian astronomers published a report detailing what they thought were unexplained aerial phenomena, or UAPs, hovering over the war-torn region. Now Harvard a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ hunter astronomer Avi Loeb has weighed in on science from Kyiv and found a realistic explanation for the puzzling observations.
Loeb said that many people had contacted him to express himself on the matter, but that he had not given it much importance for a more than logical reason: the skies over Kyiv are the last place where people should look for U̳F̳O̳s at the moment.
“In science, we are trying to minimize noise so that we can pick up the signal, and therefore Ukraine would be the last place on earth I would look for unidentified aerial phenomena… The noise level is very high,” he commented. “Ukraine is at war, and during a war, there are many things flying in the sky. Drones, planes, artillery shells, and satellites would conflict with any observation of the sky. It is something like saying: “I want to find the stars that are in the Milky Way galaxy and I will look for them during the day”.
The Analysis Of U̳F̳O̳s Over Ukraine
But that all changed when Sean Kirkpatrick, the newly appointed head of the P̳e̳n̳t̳a̳g̳o̳n̳’s All Domain Anomaly Resolution Office ( AARO ), showed up at Loeb’s house and asked him to investigate the UAP phenomenon. According to the Harvard man, Kirkpatrick didn’t mention the Kyiv report specifically, but he reminded him of it later that night and decided to work on his observations in the morning. Within an hour, he concluded that they were off the distance from the objects by “a factor of ten” and published an article giving more details.
The Ukrainian study identified two types of objects that it labeled “ghosts” and “cosmic.” The ghosts were dark objects and the cosmic ones were luminous. He focused on ghosts at first because if they’re dark, it means they’re blocking light and are probably in Earth’s atmosphere. The paper suggested that these ghosts were 3 to 12 meters long and moved at speeds of up to 15 km per second over a distance of up to 10 to 12 km.
According to Loeb, an object fitting that description would cause an incredible disturbance in the atmosphere like a fireball and the energy released by it would be equivalent to the amount consumed by everyone on Earth. “They certainly don’t claim to have seen a fireball. The objects are dark. They call them ghosts. They don’t see anything. So, they made a mistake.”
Objects moving through space displace matter around them. When a bullet leaves a gun, it displaces the air and makes a distinctive cracking sound. When a jet is going faster than the speed of sound, the pressure waves create a sonic boom. And, according to Loeb, with respect to meteors, “a tenth of the kinetic power is radiated in the optical band.” Anything of the size and speed described in the Kyiv document would create such a noise and cause a similar explosion of sound and light.
