“such as atmospheric plasmas, “are still barely understood” and the report makes it clear that “the conditions and method of formation of the electrically-charged plasmas and the scientific rationale for sustaining them for significant periods is incomplete and not fully understood.”
So a “plasma-like” phenomenon is acknowledged as not explicable with current scientific knowledge.

And also the following document by DAVID CLARKE AND GARY ANTHONY describes how this official study was released and some analysis of it is done: “THE BRITISH MOD STUDY: PROJECT CONDIGN” http://www.ufocasebook.com/pdf/projectcondign.pdf, quoting from it:
“The key finding from the perspective of ufology is expressed in the introduction to the study, where the report’s author states that it is an indisputable fact that some UFOs, or UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) as they are described throughout the report, are generated by an unknown phenomenon. As British skeptic John Rimmer commented, “Isn’t this what ufologists have been wanting to hear [from official studies] for years?””
