Navy pilots are picking things up on their radar. No one is saying, or can say, what they are.
‘Wow, What Is That?’ Navy Pilots Report Unexplained Flying Objects, New York Times, 26 May 2019
Here’s some of the video that was in the article.
A video shows an encounter between a Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet and an unknown object. It was released by the Defense Department’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. Source: U.S. Department of Defense, published December 16, 2017.
Is it something we built, or another country built, or some private group built? Why isn’t whoever is flying it telling the Navy, the Air Force, commercial airlines, it’s out there? At the very least to avoid “near collisions”?
I don’t understand how it stays airborne without wings, with no obvious form of propulsion, no jet engine, no exhaust plume. It emits no sound. If it can stay airborne for 12 hours without refueling, why isn’t this technology being adapted to other aircraft? And why aren’t there better photographs of it? This reminds me of all the blurry photographs of Big Foot. Unless you have some evidence, in the case of Big Foot, some feces or a corpse, something you can touch and analyze, then the notion that it exists is questionable. So, maybe it’s some kind of weather event or other natural phenomena. What thinking person would not be curious about this?
Well *that’s* QUITE astonishing!!!!!! I thought one angle made it look like it might have small slender wings, but I’m not sure. It looked dark rather than light at that point. Somewhere b/tw 15 and 30 secs.
I was surprised to see it in the New York Times.
Certainly gives it more gravitas than, say, the National Enquirer!!!!
It does. You can imagine it was screened by the Department of Defense before being posted.
So, not a drone, it moves too fast. Not a cloud formation or space debris, it was too maneuverable. Maybe some kind of light or sound phenomenon?
a sphere encasing a cube–that doesn’t sound at all like a cloud or space debris….
No. Other things I read were that the pilots were hallucinating, but all the pilots were hallucinating at the same time looking at the same thing? That was caught on a tracking device? Or that it was a bug on the equipment. Again, all pilots? Every day? I don’t think any of these are serious answers, which leaves us … what is it?
