• Navy pilots recently interviewed by The New York Times and appearing in the History Channel documentary series: Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation, reported detecting several UFOs during flight training between 2014 and 2015. Their radars detected these UFOs flying at hypersonic speeds at altitudes just over 9000 metres (30,000 feet), despite having no obvious means of propulsion. UFO sightings along the Southeastern US coast and in the Persian Gulf have been reported by six Navy pilots. One of the pilots, Lt. Danny Accoin, said, “It seemed like (the UFOs) were aware of our presence because they would actively move around us.” None of the pilots suggested that the UFOs were alien in origin, however.

• Leon Golub, a senior astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, said the possibility of an extra-terrestrial cause “is so unlikely that it competes with many other low-probability but more mundane explanations,” such as “bugs in the code for the imaging and display systems, atmospheric effects and reflections, neurological overload from multiple inputs during high-speed flight.”

• As a rule, the more mundane explanation for UFO sightings is the logical one. The US Air Force’s Project Blue Book collected more than 12,000 sightings between 1952 and 1969. All but 6% were “explained” astronomical, atmospheric or human phenomena. The US National Science Foundation’s Project Ozma monitored two stars: Tau Ceti and Epsilon Eridani for six hours a day from April to July 1960. No signal was found.

• Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI) said the UFOs could be drones from rival countries. Shostak also noted that these pilots began spotting the UFOs after their plane’s radar system was upgraded, which suggests that the sightings might be due to some software bug. SETI began as a government program under NASA, and continued as a private effort in 1993 when funding from the US Congress ended.

• The SETI Institute in a joint project with the University of California, Berkeley, built 42 individual telescopes that function as a single massive instrument to observe up to 1 million nearby stars for radio or optical signals. Dubbed the Allen Telescope Array, it began observations in 2007. Italy’s University of Bologna also has a radio SETI search, and Harvard University in Boston has an optical SETI search. So, while the US Air Force’s detection of UFOs might not be aliens visiting the Earth – the various SETI efforts around the world might just one day lead to such a discovery.

[Editor’s Note]   Once again, the Deep State institutions are lining up to debunk what Navy pilots are seeing with their own eyes.  Seth Shostak and SETI along with Harvard-Smithsonian, are leading the charge toward abject unenlightenment and disinformation surrounding the extraterrestrial/UFO phenomenon. Despite the overwhelming evidence of UFO’s, or ET-controlled drone UFOs which is most likely, that are routinely operating in our skies, the Deep State is pushing hard to make sure that the mainstream public does not take this seriously, and to disregard it all as a ‘glitch in the technology’. ‘There’s nothing to see here. We have it covered. Move along. Move along.’

 

According to recent media reports, between 2014 and 2015, US Navy pilots detected several Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) during training. Their radars detected these UFOs flying at hypersonic speeds at altitudes just over 9000 metres, despite having no obvious means of propulsion.

In total, six pilots who were stationed on the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt during that time period spotted UFOs during flights along the Southeast coast of the US, The New York Timesreported late last month.

Two of the Navy pilots interviewed by The New York Times have also appeared in the new History Channel documentary series: Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation, which also premiered late last month.

The objects had “no distinct wing, no distinct tail, no distinct exhaust plume,” Lt. Danny Accoin, one of the pilots said. “It seemed like they were aware of our presence because they would actively move around us.”

Accoin had told the Times that although tracking equipment, radar and infrared cameras on his aircraft had detected the UFOs twice, he was unable to capture them on his helmet camera.

Meanwhile, Lt. Ryan Graves, the other pilot featured in the documentary said that a squadron of UFOs followed his Navy strike group up and down the eastern coast of the US for months. After the USS Theodore Roosevelt was deployed to the Arabian Gulf in March 2015, the UFOs reappeared.

Such accounts would surely fire up the imagination of those of us who are fascinated by the thought of extra-terrestrials visiting our planet. However before we get too excited about this prospect, it’s worth noting that none of the pilots interviewed by the Times suggested that the UFOs they detected were alien in origin.

So, what were they? Well, the pilots themselves thought that they might have been part of a highly-classified drone programme using cutting-edge technology. There are other possibilities.

Trump’s Opinion on UFOs: Nope – But You Never Know

Listen to “E29 7-13-19 Trump’s Opinion on UFOs: Nope – But You Never Know” on Spreaker.
by Anna Hopkins                      July 6, 2019                     (foxnews.com)

• President Trump was interviewed by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson while the President visited the Far East in late June. It was aired on Fox News on July 5th. Carlson asked the President about a recent briefing he had regarding the Navy pilots who reported seeing “strange objects” flying at hypersonic speeds and emitting “no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes.” (see video below)

• Trump mused, “I mean, you have people that swear by it, right?… And pilots have come in and they said — and these are pilots that have — not pilots that are into that particular world, but we have had people saying that they’ve seen things.” This was the Commander-in-Chief’s way of saying he isn’t convinced UFOs exist.

• President Trump continued: “Well, I don’t want to really get into it too much. But personally, I tend to doubt it. … I’m not a believer, but you know, I guess anything is possible.” Apparently, he’s keeping an open mind.

• Recently, the Defense Department held a briefing with Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-VA) and two other Senators regarding Navy pilots’ encounters with UFOs. Carlson asked the President, who has access to any military base, about a claim made by a government official who said that the U.S. is in possession of UFO wreckage at an Air Force Base facility. Trump said he hadn’t heard about it but had seen the story covered on Carlson’s show.

[Editor’s Note]   Nick Pope was also interviewed by Tucker Carlson in the Fox News interview. Pope rejoiced that a US president was even discussing the subject. In a recent ExoNews article, Rich Sheck applauded Trump conceding that UFO’s are real, even if he doesn’t believe in extraterrestrials.(see here)   Dr Michael Salla recently wrote an equally optimistic account of President Trumps interview with George Stephanopoulos. (see here)   When asked if Trump believed in UFOs, the President responded “not particularly”. So Trump must have information of what these UFOs really are, and is actively seeking a way to inform the public. Many in the UFO community seem to be banking that Trump is only pretending to be ignorant and indifferent to the existence of UFOs of extraterrestrial origin as part of a master plan that the President has up his sleeve to affect full disclosure when the time is right. I wish I shared their optimism. But I have a feeling that Donald Trump isn’t pretending.

 

Does President Trump believe the truth is out there?

Apparently not.

During an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, Trump, who has all our information about extraterrestrials and UFOs at his disposal, said he isn’t convinced UFOs exist.

But he’s keeping an open mind.

“Well, I don’t want to really get into it too much. But personally, I tend to doubt it,” he told Carlson. “I’m not a believer, but you know, I guess anything is possible.”

Carlson was pressing the president on a recent briefing he had regarding the Navy pilots who reported seeing “strange objects” flying at hypersonic speeds and emitting “no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes.” Last week, the Defense Department also held a briefing with Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., as well as two other senators as part of an apparent effort to communicate with politicians about naval encounters with unidentified aircraft.

Two Experts Offer Tips on How to Spot an Unidentified Flying Object Near You

Listen to “E27 7-12-19 Two Experts Offer Tips on How to Spot an Unidentified Flying Object Near You” on Spreaker.
by Abby Haglage                     July 2, 2019                     (yahoo.com)

• July 2nd was “World UFO Day”, commemorating the July 2, 1947 UFO crash in Roswell, NM. Seventy-two years later, people are still fascinated with the UFO phenomenon.

• In a New York Times exposé , two Navy pilots revealed that they had spotted UAPs flying over the East Coast almost daily for more than six months between 2014 and 2015. Experts have many theories as to where UFOs come from, ranging from glitches in radar technology to spacecraft belonging to other nations. Although the Navy pilots’ reports are credible, they do not link these objects to extra-terrestrial beings. In fact, there is no evidence that does so. The Roswell crash itself was officially just debris made up of rubber strips, tinfoil, and paper.

• Origins and cause aside, how can people actually spot a UFO? Astronomer Chris Rutkowski says that a place with a good view of the sky is crucial, and the later at night the better. “Most UFO sightings came between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m.” “I’d personally recommend simply finding a dark location at night, away from city lights, and watching the skies.”

• According to Rutkowski, places with higher populations tend to have more sightings. But “(UFO) ‘hot spots’ come and go from year to year,” says Rutkowski . “So in some years, the state with the most reports by population could be Vermont, while it might shift to Missouri another year.”

• Rutkowski also suggests using tracking app technology. “There are many planetarium and satellite tracking apps you can get that can help you pick out objects in the sky, and see which ones aren’t stars and planets!” he says. The app store lists a number of helpful ones with high ratings, including Orbitrack and ISS Detector.

• Jan C. Harzan of MUFON says knowing the places where UFOs are often spotted is key. “On a per capita basis Maine and Arizona are the two best states to see a UFO,” Harzan says. “But UFO sightings happen all over the world.”

• Rutkowski is of the opinion that UFOs are not aliens from another world. Harzan does believe in extraterrestrials. But both men agree that the chances of a civilian spotting a UFO in the United States are good. Says Rutkowski, “Polls have shown that 10 percent of all North Americans believe they have seen UFOs — in the USA alone. That’s about 33 million people.”

[Editor’s Note]   What I find disturbing is that the new normal which the mainstream is pushing is that, yes it is now undisputed that UFOs exist. But these thousands of UFO sightings cannot be of an extraterrestrial origin, because extraterrestrials do not exist. Once again the skeptics use the fact that the government has been hiding evidence, ridiculing witnesses, and covering up the ET presence for the past 72 years – to argue that there is no “actual” evidence of extraterrestrials. But the evidence is there for anyone who cares to do a little research.

 

On July 2, 1947, a rancher in Roswell, New Mexico, stumbled on what appeared to be debris from a “flying saucer” made up of “rubber strips, tinfoil, and rather tough paper.” Baffled, he turned the materials over to the sheriff, who began an investigation. The event, later known as the Roswell UFO Incident, would eventually be recognized as the first sighting of an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) in the U.S.

Seventy-two years later, the rancher’s discovery is one that is still commemorated, a day that is now officially known as: “World UFO Day.”

Aimed at both awareness and fun, the day celebrates the original sighting, while also recognizing how many have been recorded since. Although the vast majority of these have been shared by civilians, the U.S. government has confirmed its own encounters with what it calls “unexplained aerial phenomena” (UAPs).

Last month in a New York Times expose, two Navy pilots revealed that they had spotted UAPs flying over the East Coast almost daily for more than six months between 2014 and 2015. To be sure, although their reports are credible, they do not link these objects to extra-terrestrial beings. And in fact, there is no evidence that does so. Experts have many theories as to where these objects do come from, ranging from glitches in radar technology to spacecraft belonging to other nations.

Origins and cause aside, how do people interested in UFOs actually spot one? In honor of World UFO day, Yahoo Lifestyle tracked down two experts to find out.

Find an open view of the sky

While it’s important to note that places with higher populations tend to have more sightings, longtime ufologist (UFO expert) and acclaimed astronomer Chris Rutkowski says that “a good view of the sky,” is crucial. “Especially a horizon,” he tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “So downtown Manhattan might not be better than Mesa, Arizona, overall.”

Jan C. Harzan

Know the states where it’s most common

According to Jan C. Harzan, executive director of the nonprofit MUFON (a UFO investigation & research organization), knowing the places where they’re spotted the most is key. “On a per capita basis Maine and Arizona are the two best states to see a UFO,” Harzan tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “But UFO sightings happen all over the world.”
