Stunning video captured by U.S. Navy pilots in 2015 shows a mysterious object with “no obvious wings or tails,” and “no exhaust plume” traveling at a high rate of speed over the Atlantic Ocean “very low over the water.”
“What the f— is that thing?” shouts the pilot of a U.S. Navy F/A 18 Super Hornet equipped with a Raytheon AN/ASQ-228 Advanced Targeting Forward-Looking Infrared (ATFLIR) pod – one of the most advanced imaging devices in use by the military which can locate and designate targets at distances over 40nm.
The unidentified vehicle appears as a white oval shape moving at high speed from top right to lower left of the screen flying very low over the water. Initially, the sensor is unable to capture the object. The Weapon Systems Operator (WSO) steers the sensor ahead of the object to attempt another capture. On the third attempt, the sensor tracking capture is successful. The sensor is now in “autotrack” mode, where the sensor uses contrast and other parameters to lock-on to a target, automatically keeping it centered in the sensors viewing frame. –TTSA
- There are no obvious wings or tails on the object. Even IR imagery of a cruise missile, would have visible wings at this range.
- There is no exhaust plume from the object. An exhaust plume is clearly visible on conventional aircraft in the mid-wave infrared frequency used by the ATFLIR. Shown below is a mid-wave infrared image of a F-16 in flight. The sensor is in “white-hot” mode. Note that the length of the exhaust plume is nearly the length of the aircraft. In a higher power setting, the exhaust plume would be much larger and brighter.
“The footage from a Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet showing an aircraft surrounded by some kind of glowing aura traveling at high speed and rotating as it moves. The Navy pilots can be heard trying to understand what they are seeing. “There’s a whole fleet of them,” one exclaims. Defense officials declined to release the location and date of the incident.”
As former Clinton and Bush Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, Christopher Mellon, writes the silence from the Pentagon in addressing what is clearly more advanced technology than what is publicly known – be it aliens or a foreign government – is deafening.
“Is it possible that America has been technologically leap-frogged by Russia or China?” posits Mellon. “Or, as many people wondered after the videos were first published by the New York Times in December, might they be evidence of some alien civilization?”
“Unfortunately, we have no idea, because we aren’t even seeking answers.”
Mellon notes that there’s ample evidence from official government sources of various unidentified craft performing mind-boggling aerobatics.
After speaking with senior Pentagon officials on the topic, Mellon notes “nobody wants to be “the alien guy” in the national security bureaucracy; nobody wants to be ridiculed or sidelined for drawing attention to the issue.”
