The Galileo Project is an international scientific research project to systematically search for extraterrestrial intelligence or extraterrestrial technology on and near Earth and to identify the nature of anomalous Unidentified Flying Objects/Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UFOs/UAP).

The grant from the Richard King Mellon Foundation will cover instrumentation costs essential for the installation of the new observatory, as well as provide crucial support for researchers in the field to manage and operate the new facility.
