MtnGoat published this yesterday in the YouTube thread.  (Thanks.)  I am reposting in a new thread since this conversation could become a massive thread drift.  Plus it's worth its own topic.

Yep.  If indeed that video is not a hoax then that object looks a little unworldly.  Then there's this interesting  article in the L.A. Times today.  There are excerpts from an interview with U.S. Navy pilot, Cmdr. David Fravor who witnessed that UFO on the day the video above was shot.   Quote:  The encounter Fravor described was analyzed by the recent Defense Department program, he said, but its most significant questions — the nature of the object and what it was doing — have also remained unanswered.

Fravor says he is certain about one thing: “It was a real object, it exists and I saw it,” he said in a phone interview on Monday, as he described the sighting, on Nov. 14, 2004.  Asked what he believes it was, 13 years later, he was unequivocal.

“Something not from the Earth,” he said.

...
Quote:  An order came in for him to suspend the exercise and do some “real-world tasking,” about 60 miles west of their location, Fravor said. He said he was told by the command that there were some unidentified flying objects descending from 80,000 feet to 20,000 feet and disappearing; he said officials told him they had been tracking a couple dozen of these objects for a few weeks.

When they arrived closer to the point, they saw the object, flying around a patch of white water in the ocean below.  “A white Tic Tac, about the same size as a Hornet, 40 feet long with no wings,” Fravor described. “Just hanging close to the water.”

The object created no rotor wash — the visible air turbulence left by the blades of a helicopter — he said, and began to mirror the pilots as they pursued it, before it vanished.
“As I get closer, as my nose is starting to pull back up, it accelerates and it’s gone,” he said. “Faster than I’d ever seen anything in my life. We turn around, say let’s go see what’s in the water and there’s nothing. Just blue water.”


Fravor returned to the ship.  Another crew went out and made that video of their encounter.  ~z

I look forward to seeing more of this type of footage from pilots.

Questions, questions...

Where's the 'mother ship'; how did it approach Earth without being picked up, or was it...? How could 'Command' track the objects from 80,000ft to 20,000ft but not outside that range?

...for starters.

I'm skeptical. confused.gif

This is definitely the most convincing evidence I've ever seen - that it was convincing enough to senators and the pentagon to get $22 million dollars in research funding definitely adds credibility.

I'm always torn when it comes to UFO sightings - part of me wants to go "holy cow, ALIENS!!!" while another part is very skeptical indeed.

This appears to me to be a spec of dust or some foreign object on the sensor or camera lens.

Yeah.  Compared to some of the conspiracy theories and alternative realities floating around right now, the UFO fetish seems fairly benign.  Anyway don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

Carl Sagan or some other skeptic...

"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof."

Photography doesn't cut it anymore and eyewitnesses are equally unreliable as scientific evidence.
