Pantex Nuclear Facility UAP Incident (2015)

The document from the Department of Energy (DOE) regarding the Pantex Nuclear Facility UAP incident is heavily redacted, which leaves many details obscured. The incident occurred on September 2, 2015, when personnel at the Pantex Plant in Amarillo, Texas, observed an unidentified object. The initial sighting described the object as having a “diamond” shape, which was more rounded at the top.

Upon spotting the object, Pantex personnel were promptly alerted and dispatched to gather as much information as possible. Ground surveillance radar tracked the object, and personnel followed it for several miles north of the plant until it was no longer visible. The report includes images from the ground surveillance radar tower and enhanced images of the object provided by Sandia National Laboratories, though these images and further details remain classified or redacted in the document.

The report highlights the sensitive nature of the facility and underscores the critical importance of robust security measures. It points out ongoing concerns about unauthorized aerial activities over critical infrastructure, suggesting a pattern of similar incidents at other DOE facilities.

Later in October 23, 2018, an operational emergency was declared at the Pantex Nuclear Weapons Facility in Texas. The Pantex Nuclear Facility Jellyfish UAP Incident (2018) began with the sighting of a jellyfish-shaped UAP, described as having a tube-shaped body with a domed top and dangling appendages. This object maneuvered around secure areas of the facility, which stores substantial amounts of plutonium, before sharply ascending at a 45-degree angle. This peculiar event is said to have been captured on classified footage, which has not yet been made public.

In a detailed article on the UAP Register, Dustin Slaughter reports on the significant UAP incursion at the Pantex Nuclear Facility on September 2, 2015. The report, obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, describes how security personnel observed and tracked a “diamond-shaped” object for several miles. This incident, occurring at a highly sensitive national security site, raises serious concerns about the security of critical infrastructure. The object was also captured by ground radar and analyzed by Sandia National Laboratories, but key details remain classified.
