"UFO" abbreviation is now outdated. Shall we call them "UAP" instead?

I like UFO.

And we can still fight over the pronunciation.

Is it pronounced "YOU-foh," or "OO-foh," or just spelled out like "yoo-eff-OH?"

I think both are fine - an aerial phenomena might be a spiral cloud (i.e. rocket), nebulous light, or something else. Object is an object. If you can't be certain it's solid, use UAP. If it's an obvious object, then UFO it is.

UFO:

"The reported perception of an object or light seen in the sky or upon the land the appearance, trajectory, and general dynamic and luminescent behavior of which do not suggest a logical, conventional explanation and which is not only mystifying to the original percipients but remains unidentified after close scrutiny of all available evidence by persons who are technically capable of making a common sense identification, if one is possible."

The UFO Experience: A Scientific Inquiry by J. Allen Hynek, Henry Regnery, Chicago, 1972, p. 10.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) is used by aviation professionals


UAP's seem a logical progression

FBJ


The British Ministry of Defence used the term UAP in early June 2006 when acknowledging their existence

Just wondering why the good old "UFO" abbreviation is getting replaced?
Now they are "Unidentified Aerial Phenomena".

How many other abbreviations for the UFOs (USOs) are out there?



Last week, a Navy official publicly called these mysterious objects “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP),” giving name to the inscrutable little dots and reigniting scrutiny around the unidentified flying objects (a term the Navy does not want to use even though the objects that are flying cannot be identified.)


Source is www.washingtonpos... t.com


the term UAP has been around for decades and is little more than psudo skeptical dismissal of people who believe that earth is being visited by biological lifeforms from other planets piloting nuts and bolts craft.

Sure keep uap for all of your funny radar returns and weather anomolies, but the term UFO should be kept for anything that is reported as being an actual craft.

When somebody sees a black triangular ship with red lights hovering above their house the only "phenomena" involved is the one that involves people going into denial and blaming it on teenagers spraying swamp gas out of a weather baloon.

Actually, apparently the term is now AAV for advanced aerospace vehicles. At least, according to Lazars report on the militaries research programs on the 9 we’ve found. His interview on joe rogan was awesome.
