Navy Confirms UFO Videos Real

Wed Sep 18, 2019 12:51 pm

But they denounce the release of said videos and stop short of detailing what they believe the objects are or providing any further context.

These videos originally popped up a few years back when the New York Times released them. Three separate videos, each one contains commentary from flight crew and unexplained objects flying around.

Aliens? Weather Phenomena? Mechanical malfunction of equipment? You be the judge...

Well, They are UFO's. but my expectation is that someone was flying rockets or heat intensive items, that were launched while on screen and the IR sensors didn't know what to do with multiple items for a bit.
Where ever you go, there you are.

Could even be as simple as a meteor coming in.

Nah, i would think we can rule that one out. No trail behindert it, and kinda hard to see any geometry yield that apparent trajectory change at the end. It would also not appear black in the visible spectrum, the color temperature of those things is sun level-ish.

I always thought UFO stood for "unidentified flying object"? If they can not identify a flying object, it is, technically, a UFO, right?

Now that no one is storming Area 51, we will not know if it was one of ours or from somewhere else on the planet or not from here.

We had some big storms roll through here last night, so I did not sleep much. That is why I am "off" today.....
You bet I'm pumped!!! I just had a green tea!!!

Correct. It's only the tinfoil hat brigade that jump to the conclusion it must be extra terrestrial.

Good point, the heat given off would make the object appear whiter in the spectrum.
