unidentified aerial phenomena

I'm just going to put this out there to see if it gets any traction. Over the past few months the US defence department has released a number of gun camera videos taken over the past 15 years by the most advanced technology on the market, together with expert witness accounts by fighter pilots, weapons systems officers, and naval staff with the highest levels of training and security clearance. They show unidentified aircraft that demonstrate flight characteristics far beyond the capabilities of any known technology, in some cases even defying the known laws of physics. Scientists are quick to point out that just because we don't know where this technology comes from, it does not mean that it must come from other planets or stars...

There have been hundreds of articles and videos published about this disclosure over the past few months. Feel free to Google for the rest if you aren't already aware of it.

I like this kind of thing, but I sometimes despair over the wild conjecture that you see on TV shows. One of the first things I did when I got a PC was look up UFOs !

But yes, I had not heard of this, thanks for posting it. I read the article and see there are more linked, but it's late here so I will read more tomorrow.

One thing though, didn't it used to be a lot longer before things like this got released publicly ?

In fact some of the major players have been cautioned for posting or the use of "Fake News" or Pseudo Hype meant to draw attention like many of those click-bait sites that try to draw you in then show you garbage or nonsense.

Let's hope they don't have too hard a time telling the real from a nicely faked photoshop image!  O0

Ever since the original articles were published in December I've been searching for a credible refutation of the claims made but so far I haven't found any reason not to take them seriously. While the leaked videos don't show much by themselves, taken in conjunction with the expert testimony of numerous high ranking government and military personnel it's pretty compelling.

snopes.com is the go to website for things like this but they remain silent on the issue. There is a fairly thorough analysis and refutation of the most recently published video on metabunk.org but unfortunately it is based on a wrong assumption and fails to prove anything. I guess they were in too much of a hurry to show how smart they are. Can anyone else spot the glaring mistake in their arguments?

If it has anything to do with the maths then no !

I thought the parallax thing was interesting though - and of course birds can manoeuvre unlike any known aircraft to use the usual wording.

I love this kind of stuff… so what do we recon these UFO’s are?

They come from far away galaxies. Perhaps they can fold space?

They come from inside the moon, one of the planets in our solar system or from a planet/ ship with a wide orbit yet to be discovered.

A race of reptilians living inside the Earth with advanced tech… did the dinosaurs go extinct?

Inter-dimensional travellers/ observers, phasing in and out at will.

Time travellers coming back from our future.

An undiscovered natural phenomena that can induce illusions in humans.
 
Technology that the earth governments/ militaries are not disclosing.

They are misinterpretations of natural earth bound phenomena.

Oh! The list goes on…

 :)
It thunk... therefore it is!

What do we want?... Time travel.

When do we want it?... It's irrelevant.

So correct me if I am wrong (probably) this one was moving in a straight line with no observable exhaust at very fast speeds ?

If that's the case couldn't it be space junk falling to Earth ?

I don't really get exposed to Fox News, but I understand they are not highly rated. More like tabloid news ?

Yes it was travelling low and fast near the surface of the ocean at very high speed. If you look closely at the gun camera footage which is recorded in the infrared spectrum, it's apparent that the object is colder than the ocean below it, so that (and the trajectory) rules out space junk. It looked very similar to the kinds of objects that many different pilots and radar operators had seen before, often performing seemingly impossible maneuvers.

That's correct, Fox News is closely allied with the alt-right and the kinds of Americans that the civilised world likes to mock. However I used that clip because it was very recent and as far as I could ascertain, it didn't actually contain any factual errors. There are many others from reputable news services such as this one from CNN a few months ago about a different incident involving one of these strange craft.



If you feel like searching for more, look for interviews with Luis Elizondo and David Fravor. Mr Elizondo is the US Defence Dept official who started this whole disclosure business, and Cmdr Fravor is one of the pilots who has encountered these things in the air.

There's actually a pretty good wikipedia article about it too.
