Source For This Information

This information comes from the 2022 Annual Report on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. The examples below represent only a fraction of the reports made during the year 2022. That report states:
AARO (All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office) and ODNI (Office of the Director of National Intelligence) assess that the observed increase in the UAP reporting rate is partially due to a better understanding of the possible threats that UAP may represent, either as safety of flight hazards or as potential adversary collection platforms, and partially due to reduced stigma surrounding UAP reporting. This increased reporting allows more opportunities to apply rigorous analysis and resolve events.
The National UFO Reporting Center site offers a detailed list of dates, locations, descriptions, and in many cases, photos.

Please Look Closely

It goes without saying that some of these reports are clearly fraudulent. People with far too much time on their hands had nothing better to do than submit phony reports.
One curious thing to note: Take a look at the dates and correlate those with locations. You'll notice on some dates more than one report was submitted from the same location. An example would be June 19, 2022, with reports from Rye, Colorado. Another would be May 15, 2022, from Pine Grove, Colorado. In each case, multiple people made reports, each with similar observations.
