    'What is that, man?' Navy confirms videos of flying objects

    news 13 hours ago The Associated Press — By BEN FINLEY - Associated Press


    NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — In one of the videos, a small object streaks across the sky before the U.S. Navy fighter jet's tracking system locks on and follows it.
    "Whoa. Got it," the pilot yells, laughing as the dot moves on his screen. "Woohoo!"
    Another pilot asks: "Wow. What is that, man?"
    The Navy isn't offering an explanation — at least not publicly — for exactly what that object was. But the service is confirming the authenticity of that video and two others taken from its planes in 2004 and 2015.
    The release of the videos, which have been circulating online and in news reports, was not authorized, Navy officials said. But the footage has prompted the Navy to publicly discuss an ongoing investigation into sightings by its pilots of what it describes as "unidentified aerial phenomena" or UAPs in U.S. airspace on both coasts.
    "We are not going to try to characterize anything that may have been seen out there," Navy Spokesman Joseph Gradisher said. "But the number of sightings has increased since about 2014 when the advent of new technologies such as drones and quadcopters have come into being."
    Meanwhile, lawmakers are calling for more information on the so-called UAPs, saying some of their movements seem to challenge the laws of physics.
    "Based on pilot accounts, encounters with these UAPs often involved complex flight patterns and advanced maneuvering, which demand extreme advances in quantum mechanics, nuclear science, electromagnetics and thermodynamics," North Carolina Congressman Mark Walker wrote in a letter to Navy Secretary Richard Spencer in July.
    "If the accounts are true, the unidentified crafts could pose a serious security risk to our military personnel and defense apparatus," wrote Walker, a Republican on the U.S. House's Homeland Security Committee. "They could also represent a tremendous opportunity for advancements in science in technology that can contribute to the public good."
    The Navy is updating its guidelines to encourage pilots to more thoroughly report what they see, Gradisher said. And Navy investigators have been traveling to bases such as Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach, Virginia, where squadrons of F/A-18 Super Hornets are based, to talk to aviators.
    "We need reports and data and things we can analyze, and that's where our aviators come into play," Gradisher said. "We need them to participate. In years past they didn't necessarily do that because there was a stigma to reporting on something being unidentified."
    Gradisher said the issue, ultimately, is the safety and security of the Navy's operations.
    "Our aviators train as they fight," he said. "And we don't like the idea of someone or something observing how we train."

    Interesting.... unfortunately we're still likely to never know what it really is if it's that advanced.

    All through history it's been the PIRATES to get somewhere first.

    No doubt someone else is out there. The big question is still how they are
    covering vast distances if the speed of light is truly as fast as you can travel.

    All the Best,

    The light of Venus reflecting off of swamp gas hit a weather balloon. Look at the blinky thing and tell me what you see.

    Umm, congressman, even if those maneuvers were really conducted by physical objects of significant mass, neither quantum mechanics, nuclear science, or electromagnetics will change in the slightest. Maybe thermodynamics, but the real shocker is good old Newtonian understandings of momentum. And yes, on very small mass scales, Newtonian mechanics has been eclipsed by quantum mechanics, but when an aircraft attempts a maneuver that rips its wings off, Newton is the one saying "I told you so."

    And still the quality of the image is right up there with Sasquatch and spooks. Gee, with today’s technology and cameras everywhere you’d think someone could get a clear picture.

    Interesting stuff. Other governments/countries have had similar UFO encounters as well, and while the overwhelming majority can be explained by something far more mundane than aliens, some are quite shocking and do seem to prove an advancement in technology superior to ours. If it was another government, or even our own, you would think the cat would have gotten out of the bag by now. And if it is aliens, well, let's just hope they continue making minor nuisances of themselves from time to time in the sky, because if they ever land and pull a take me to your leader, I don't think our society could survive such a thing. Our cultural, economic, religious, political, and numerous other differences and beliefs of numerous countries and groups would tear the world apart under such a revelation.

    48 years ago, when I first met my new brother-in-law,
    I had no doubts that alien life really existed.

    Make sure you spend as much time as possible
    on the internet arguing with strangers about politics.

    Heck, every night I see lots of things moving around in the sky that I can't identify. As far as I'm concerned, they're all UFO's.

    Question, however, in your title, you mention they are "here". Could you please be more specific? Do you mean earth or do you mean in your hometown, or do you mean in one of your body cavities? This is serious business and we need to know.
