The objects seen in three clips of declassified military footage are "unidentified aerial phenomena," Navy spokesperson Joe Gradisher confirmed to CNN. The clips, released between December 2017 and March 2018 by To The Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences, appear to show fast-moving, oblong objects captured by advanced infrared sensors.


is there anything UFO-related that isn't being disclosed ?

It seems as if our planet has become an area of increased research interest for some advanced civilization from within our own galaxy

So what hard empirical evidence is this statement based on? Oh, there is none? Got it.


As for the videos, anyone with common sense will know these are highly experimental aircraft and the military will say anything to deflect attention from that.

Panzer, the amount of burst acceleration demonstrated in some of these videos is essentially impossible with today's technology without telltale wakes and exhaust trails--none of which we see. While it is easy to scoff and dismiss these as top secret military excursions, when air force pilots themselves can't figure out what the hell they are looking at, then they have my attention.

This universe is far too large to believe with absolute certainty that there is no other intelligent life out there.

Only 150 years ago most of the roads in America were dirt and mud... Our existence here has been a microcosm of time on the intergalactic calendar.

I would not be surprised at all to find out that there is alien life out there, but there just seems to be much simpler explanations for things like this than aliens. I think "aliens" is kind of like the new "evil spirits" of old, where if you can't explain something..."aliens!"

As PM points out, all we have is a mystery, but no actual evidence that indicates an other-worldy origin.

True. I was at the hangar the other day and the moon was visible. Standing by my lane, looking up at the moon, it struck me that from mans very first powered flight to landing on that moon was only 66 years.

Just 66 years.

You are talking about technology that you are aware of. Also, the average AF pilot has not a clue what is in development or in experimental stages.

They are obviously UFOs... but being a UFO just means it's unidentifiable not that it is an alien.

Did you even read the article ? the navy classified this as unindentified aerial phenomena...not flying object.....they are considering this a natural phenomena not a made object. this says a lot.\
Also if you read about the incident you will know the navy tracked those objects with sonar when they dove underwater to flee the jets.

Frankly I think the wording leaves the door open for natural OR artificial phenomena of unknown nature or origin.

No, but he has a fairly intimate acquaintance with the physics of flight.

Why only "from within our own galaxy" ?

Seems rather extragalactiphobic...
