You can click on the 'watch on youtube' in the video for a larger version, but I wanted to include the article for context.

edit: might as well embed the video too. :)

So there are now several former Pentagon officials saying things like "we have compelling evidence we are not alone". Smells like a fat book deal to me. But if not, how cool is that?

Yeah, someone always hops on the bandwagon.

I was immediately suspicious. All the verbiage at the beginning to puff it up and make it sound exciting. Chain of custody...woooo.

The amophous blob that doesn;t move for a while then slowly rotates. the shape of it could easily be a lens flare.


I remember one report with pictures. The planes were trying to catch up to lights in the sky, but couldn;t seem to gain on them. Turned out they were focused on refinery flare offs over a hundred miles away.

That film is IR though. Would a lens flare behave the same?

Generally, an IR lens flare isn't the same as visible light - it's worse.

I recall a report (not with pictures) where the pilot attempted to intercept what turned out to be either Venus or Jupiter.

I remember a commercial pilot trying to get away from Venus, it pursued him across the Pacific.

Oh, they've been doing that for years. The unofficial story of my wife's great-grandfather is that he got a young woman pregnant, then fled Sweden for Denmark, where he changed his name before fleeing again to a tiny hamlet in rural western South Dakota. The young lady (perhaps with help from her father and/or brothers) corralled his brother, and convinced him to reveal great-grandfather's new location. She then brought herself and their child to the tiny hamlet, where they married and lived out the rest of their lives. Whether it was happy or not was probably up to her, I'm sure.

The official story is that they married in Sweden, and then he set out to find a better life for his young family, and the name change happened organically; a nickname that someone gave him along the way, apparently. After settling down in South Dakota, he arranged for his wife and child to immigrate. I don't think anyone has bothered to check the records for a marriage license, and so I suppose we'll never really know.

So I guess none of you guys will be sending contributions to "To the Stars Academy" then? :mrgreen:

I did like that it was supposedly previously unreleased classified material, though that seems to be in question now.
And listening to the pilots was fun.

The "former pentagon official" I saw on CNN last night mentioned that we should expect footage to be released soon of several encounters the USS Nimitz Carrier Battle Group had while deployed sometime in the early 2000's.

I've seen a few references around the interwebs that the "soft disclosure" is beginning.

We've always been teetering on the brink of disclosure, according to UFO nuts. I'll believe it when I see it!

The Nimitz footage has even less to offer:

That doesn't depict what was described. So either the guy was full of shit or there is more coming.

Sounds like he was talking about what happened before the FLIR1 video, as described in this article?

When you see it, or when you identify it?

Can't watch the video, I'll be back in the land of unfiltered internet in about 36 hours.
