Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon sightings (FOI)

Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon sightings (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 01 July 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


I recently asked question in regard to air safety.

UAP phenomenon has been discussed in congress and Parliament.

Recently American congress admitted that there has been 11 near misses with UAP and US military jets.

I've recorded videos of fast moving UAP stationary in our air space some orange and some blue, the movements these crafts were making before I filmed them were clearly not of any British or Jersey technology.

Is Jersey in contact with other governments in regards air safety and is there a way pilots or radar operators can report this without ridicule.

China has now began using AI to track more frequent UAP sightings.

Are there anymore sightings in Jersey air space been made besides myself I'm reporting.


A "UAP" has been taken to mean "unidentified aerial phenomenon".  

The questions of whether or not Jersey is in contact with other governments, or whether or not other individuals, other than the applicant, have reported sightings in Jersey airspace, have already been addressed in a previous Freedom of Information response which is publicly available on Article 23 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied.
