UFOs are real

As if this year has not been strange enough the United States Pentagon has pretty well acknowledged the existence of Unidentified Flying Objects with the official release of video captured by US Air Force planes.

The videos had been previously released but it is not until this week that they were confirmed to be from official sources. Here they are.

From the Guardian:

The Pentagon on Monday released three declassified videos that show US navy pilots encountering what appear to be unidentified flying objects.

The grainy videos, which the Pentagon says depict “unexplained aerial phenomena”, were previously leaked, with some believing they show alien UFOs.

The Pentagon said it released the footage to “to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real or whether or not there is more to the videos”, a statement on the Department of Defense website said.

“After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena,” the statement said.Advertisement

The videos had been “circulating in the public domain after unauthorized releases in 2007 and 2017”, the statement said, adding that “the aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as ‘unidentified’”.

And there may be more evidence, much more.

What next?

    They'll be back for the harvest.

    I gather, from various media reports of the twitterstorm, that the Pentagon got instructed to provide a major distraction to refocus public & media attention away from the pandemic.

    The Trump admin must be paranoid that someone will notice the USA casualty rate is running about triple the next most infected country. A headline saying so could appear! Trump could be blamed.

    Well, so the theory goes…

    "the department [of Defense] has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena"

    Or to put it in English: we don't know exactly what it is, but we know enough to say it's definitively not a technological "alien" craft.

      They forgot the standard explanation: weather balloons. Typical Trumpist amateurs, can't get anything right…

    • McFlock 3.2

      For one thing, they know the relative speeds, angles, and distances of observed object and observing aircraft, so how much of the apparent movement is parallax vs real movement.

      • weka 3.2.1

        would be nice if they explained what we are looking at then.

        • Phil

          I'm willing to wager that at least one of them is 'some shit that got stuck on the camera lens'

        • McFlock

          They tend to minimise information releases on the grounds of operational security, and they might not technically know what the things are anyway.

          Also, the UFO hype has always been good cover for actual secret projects for extreme aircraft development – stealth, speed, and altitude vehicles. For every one who posits an accurate picture of the hypersecret hypersonic successor to the SR71, ten people will argue "aliens".

          There's a very reasonable sounding explanation here:

    It's plain that these are mocked up videos for the simple reason that no self-respecting USAF pilot would call another "dude"?

    "Hey, dude, like there's a kind of enemy aircraft about to shoot your arse off, so, like, split, dude!”

    • I Feel Love 4.1

      Heh, I dunno about that, I recall those videos from Bush JRs war where they sound like surfer frat guys sending thousands of bullets into unarmed people yahhooing etc.

  5. georgecom 5

    looks to me either like Venus, light refracting from a weather balloon or swamp gas

  6. JohnSelway 6

    Saying “unexplained flying objects” = aliens is a contradiction.

    essentially you’re saying “I can’t explain it therefore I can explain it”

    unexplained means just that – unexplained

    Almost 50 years ago I saw what could be called a UFO and subsequently talking to other locals who admitted seeing similar phenomena over the ensuing years. The curious thing was that most of them appeared to be around or followed earthquake faultlines of which Marlborough, as we discovered during the Kaikoura quake, has a disproportinatly large number.

    Two of the most famous sightings have appeared in this area, the Kaikoura UFOs and the Moreland sighting in the early 60s and there are heaps more but most never reported them as they didn't wish to get treated like poor Mrs Moreland..

    As during most quakes there are reports of huge electrical discharges that light up the sky got me to wondering if there was any connection and I have always wished that I had enough time and money to do a proper study, but the problem being that when I have the time I don't have the money and when I have the money ….

    Thanks for that link Andre. 25 years or so ago I read a report on research at UCLA on crushing at huge pressure rock samples mined from the San Andreas fault and they found small ball lightning discharges moving above the surface of the samples tracking the fractures in the samples just before they collapsed. I haven,t been able to find any mention of it since.

    Some of the stories here in Marlborough are fascinating and pretty much all on fault lines.
