Yes. This is a shift in policy from "no comment" to "we recorded these videos and we haven't identified what is on them."

But no new context or information.

Those are some pretty interesting videos. I mean, whatever those things were, they weren't a "natural phenomenon". And if they were indeed some kind of man-made devices, then there is some freaky propulsion technology out there that we don't know about.

UFO =/= alien spacecraft

a UFO is a flying object that is unidentified. So yes, it absolutely shows UFO's

yeah, but old news is not that exciting to me.

they have been here longer than us. we are a genetic experiment to them. they made us, altered our dna.

I saw a UFO. Had a solid green light and a blinking red light and made peculiar movements. I tried filming it, but it was too blurry to make out. Speculation, I know, but I think it was a drone.

What's more interesting to me is that at least in one of the cases there were 2 planes. Both pilots saw the same thing, sensors on both craft saw the same thing. Makes mirage, hallucination, sensor glitch highly unlikely.

"Look at that thing, dude. They're going against the wind. The wind is 120 knots."

Dude. The wind is 120 knots? Off the coast of California? Hurricane-strength wind? A category 4 hurricane?

Maybe you were misreading your instruments.

at altitude, especially in the jet stream, it isn't that unusual.
 
2020-04-27 7:59:09 PM  
So I'm equally mixed between "This is alien", "This is terrestrial technology and someone is WAY further ahead than we thought", and "This is a disinformation campaign to screw with foreign powers."

No, it's far more likely that you don't know what you're talking about. It's almost as if winds get faster at higher altitudes.

Anyway, meterological discussion aside, I don't think these are alien craft.

Ultimately, the competing options are that aliens have travelled across the galaxy to put on a senseless light show, OR that it's possible for people to install lights in the sky.

Great thing about that particular person is, if you find the WISO who flew with him that took the actual video(s), or the pilots that flew in his wing, you can corroborate his story.

So what? You can find people who believe that the Bermuda Triangle is an area where lots of people die, or that the mesoamerican pyramids have links to the Egyptian pyramids.

Even though a pilot said he saw it with his eyes, pilots aren't any better eyewitness than anyone else. They're human. They make mistakes like anyone else.

The recording looks like a reflection the way it rotates with the way the camera moves. If you point a camera at any point of light you'll see the starburst effect and the angle the Starbursts will rotate as you move the camera around much like the ufo does.

In the Joe Rogan interview the pilot said he wasn't getting any radar data from it. So there was no radar reflection signal bouncing off the ufo and returning to the jet.

The way the system works is all of the various instruments share information with each other. So if a plane "sees" something, it is broadcast to the ship, and the command and control plane. So if any one of those pieces is projecting anomalous data they will all see it. So maybe they were seeing a far off reflection of the sun and it was being projected to everyone. It seems silly to say, but when dealing with bleeding edge optics these things could happen.

If I also recall correctly this was new technology at the time, so maybe the engineers didn't have all the bugs worked out yet.
 
2020-04-27 10:33:08 PM  
Well, I think we can all agree that the evidence here is clear. These are scouting ships and the arrival must be imminent for the information to be released to the public now. Alien liberators or alien menace - the question of our time. Will we be melted down into some kind of nutrient heavy sludge or lifted up to join the intergalactic community? If the aliens are peaceful, the worst possible people are in charge because - ohhhoho boy - they will fark this up. Fortunately, if they're the Mars Attacks type aliens, then the best possible people are in charge for now.

You're leaving out the part where his wingman also saw it. Both of their sensors tracked it until they were actively jammed. Two pilots saw the same thing at the same time. Sensors on both aircraft saw the same thing at the same time. Sensors on both aircraft then were actively jammed. In the interview he said they reported it back to superiors on the ship and were met with, "Yeah, we've seen those before, they're out there alot".
The fact that the Navy released the video and confirmed they don't know what it is goes to confirm all of this.
