Found this nicely made video/documentary very interesting. It is the story behind the recent Pentagon released "tic tac' UFO footage recorded by Navy jets.

Are we getting closer to some form of official disclosure? This story was on last night's TV and radio news.

A news release yesterday said three videos posted online that have been described as being related to UFO sightings do indeed include footage of “unidentified aerial phenomena,” a U.S. Navy spokesman confirmed.

This may be related, I saw a doco on Foxtel called the "Unexplained" (History channel) and Tom DeLonge was in the program. Very interesting.

"Former Blink 182 singer Tom DeLonge left one of the world's biggest rock bands to further his research into UFOs under the guise of the so-called "To the Stars Academy of Arts & Science".

I believe Unexplained is a program Delonges start up To the Stars has helped produce for the History Channel so yes they are connected. The episodes of the program basically promote TTSA

The good news is these episodes of Unidentified are on line at Vimeo. Here's S1, Ep 2.

The incredible new eye witness testimonies in these Nimitz encounter interviews are there for everyone to watch. It includes revelations like these UFO contacts actually took place over 4 days.

Kevin Day, who was Chief Radar Operator on the USS Princeton, said it was 'raining UFO's' with over 100 contacts visible on radar. That's a lot of 'tic tacs'!! The Princeton was part of the USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group. They were 100 miles SW of San Diego on a training mission.

The 'tic tac' shaped UFOs were travelling very slowly at 28,000 feet. Suddenly they were seen to drop to the ocean surface in .78 of a second!! That's 24,000 mph in our atmosphere...or around 30 times the speed of sound!! The amazing unidentified objects were also tracked underwater on sonar at over 70 knots. There will surely be more amazing facts revealed in the near future as the 'snowball effect' brings more witnesses out in the open, particularly those who have now left the Navy.

If it's not out already, I'll bet there will soon be a book released on this fascinating case file.

Wasn't Kevin also the guy who said that due to his Tic Tac encounter (which amounts to sitting in a chair in the bowels of a ship miles away from the "object" staring at a monitor screen) he was imbued with the psychic abilities of precognition, heightened intellect, the ability to manifest his desires along with apocalyptic dreams foreshadowing the future?

Where are you getting the tracked on sonar at 70 knots? I'm familiar with the story of the person (Gary) who's most associated in this case with the sonar claims. He says he heard it second hand by eavesdropping on the sonar guys on board the Princeton. But i haven't heard the 70knots figure quoted before. The case is reported from so many angles and players that its hard to keep up with whats canon.

The "100 contacts visible on radar" was explained by Kevin as over a six day period they witnessed a total of 100 contacts but didnt see more than ten at any one time.

Its an interesting case. Even more interesting that it occured in waters where all sorts of military tests are constantly done, during a large naval exercise, using newly upgraded radar systems.

Anyways, to quote the famous line in ufology, with commander Fravor I'm pretty sure he "knows what he saw"

I have read about Chief Radar Specialist and Air Intercept Controller Kevin Day’s post incident anxiety attacks that he said gave him vivid dreams in the aftermath of this radar tracking encounter.

Who knows how you or I would react in the pressure cooker environment of the armed forces after being exposed to such a mind altering and life changing experience. However, that doesn’t change at all what he and other Navy radar specialists witnessed with their super sophisticated electronic eyes back in November, 2004.

As for the Gary Voorhis testimony about his fellow Navy operators sonar tracking this 40 foot long ‘tic tac’ of over 70 knots, it can be heard at around 19.20 and 37.25 on the above video of Unidentified S1, E2.

UFO's and USO's are the same vehicles. I have personally spoken at length with a US Navy sailor who watched a 'huge round luminous green object' sail directly under his Destroyer. All his exercising battle group were aware of the USO and he said 'even the Admiral watched it'. This incident took place in the Pacific Ocean in the early 70's.

The ‘more than 100 contacts’ was over a stated 4 days. I was not trying to infer it was all at once. Not sure where the 6 days comes from.

The fact remains that this massive sighting has rocketed up the list to become one of the best documented UFO cases of all time and will continue to gain momentum as more information is released.

Regarding six days. Kevin said so himself on march 27th, 2019 at UFOMegaCon. Plus if you add the dates up. His incident started November 10th and continued through till the 15th of November.

Post incident anxiety doesn't explain the psychic ability histrionics. Besides whats mind altering about seeing strange stuff on your radar screen? Alarming, intriguing sure. Bestowing newfound psychic abilities though?

Thank you for the timestamp and reference to the video where he states 70knots underwater. I'll consider his second hand info canon now in this story.

I agree the glowing, radar tormenting lights in the air and water are the same thing in this case and many others.

I believe the individual who you talked to who said he saw one sail under his navy destroyer is telling the truth. My mother even saw one at a close distance sail next to her sailboat off Catalina island (same area Kevin says his first sightings on the 10th started) one night and flit away into the sky. And i myself have seen things you wouldn't believe in the same airspace. So im not discounting they witnessed what they did. I am discounting what they attribute them to. Which i find interesting. Like i said i believe fravor, day and the others "know what they saw"

As for how revelatory and disclosure heralding this case seems. I believe it will be up there in the annals of ufology for some time. That is until certain developments in optics become more mainstream in the civilian sector. Then it will be blatantly obvious as to what they are. Might be even sooner than we think if one blogger has the scoop he claims he does and has his way. Then again his exclusive is a week over due. Curious if someone kiboshed it for him.

Apart from the Nimitz encounter in 2004, let’s not forget what occurred around the USS Roosevelt and its battle group in the Atlantic in 2015.

The carrier based Navy F18’s took the other two videos released by the Pentagon, the ‘Gimbal’ footage and the ‘Go Fast’ video of the round object skimming low over the ocean surface. The pilots get quite excited in this one!

Airmen have again come forward to verify close up sightings. US Navy fighter pilot Lieutenant Ryan Graves is an impressive eyewitness.

An interesting part of this case report is the stalking of the Roosevelt by a fleet of UFOs. They even followed the carrier to the Persian Gulf in the Middle East!

Yeah the Roosevelt incident is interesting. It happened in late February early March 2015 off Florida...during a major naval exercise. Just like the earlier incident. Then the phenomena followed the carrier to the middle east. Its almost as if these things are part of the task force fleet and probably serve some sort purpose.

Graves has stated that while in the Mediterranean on the Roosevelt he occasionally saw similar types of anomalous radar contacts although they were significantly reduced in intensity and volume. Both accoin and graves have stated that they dont believe they were extra terrestrial. Here's a quote from accoin when asked about them being extraterrestrial. “We’re here to do a job, with excellence, not make up myths,” said Accoin.

Graves statement of it appearing like a sphere with a cube inside sounds plausible with these sort of things under the right circumstances. Just gotta understand the science behind it.

The go fast video can be debunked with high school trigonometry as an effect of parallax. The object whatever it is isn't going high sub mach. Turns out the math shows its going 40knots.

From a May 2019 New York Times interview with Navy pilots Graves and Accoin.

What was strange, the pilots said, was that the video showed objects accelerating to hypersonic speed, making sudden stops and instantaneous turns — something beyond the physical limits of a human crew.

“Speed doesn’t kill you,” Lieutenant Graves said. “Stopping does. Or acceleration.”
Asked what they thought the objects were, the pilots refused to speculate.

“We have helicopters that can hover,” Lieutenant Graves said. “We have aircraft that can fly at 30,000 feet and right at the surface.” But “combine all that in one vehicle of some type with no jet engine, no exhaust plume.”

Lieutenant Accoin said only that “we’re here to do a job, with excellence, not make up myths.”


I believe both pilots are still active with the Navy so of course they will ‘toe the line’ and would try to not publicly say anything that would be considered controversial or outside mainstream thinking.

Sounds to me they're hinting that they're not craft.

Ok, hears what I thought about last night while thinking about the sea and unexplained aerial phenomenon (yes I had a few beers lol).

Fish have excellent movement abilities in the water (thanks to dorsal fins); they can swim fast, stop on a dime and make sharp turns in sea water, which is more dense than air. Air at sea level has 0.1275% of the density of water (assuming we are comparing the same volumes). Another amazing sea creature is the Cone Snail with it's lightning speed harpoon.

https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn ... g-strikes/

There are probably many other ocean creatures with "kick ass" abilities that seem to leave terrestrial creatures in their wake. Look up how cunning and clever killer whales are and the many species of killer jelly fish!

My crazy "beer drinking" hypothesis is could some of the aerial phenomenon be organic in nature, and posses similar abilities to those of the sea given billions of years of evolution? The tic tac object reminds me of small fish, darting all over the place.

I will wait for the men in white coats to pick me up.

Surprise, surprise... doesn't sound like that to me at all! :D

Surely the many objects that gave all those strong radar returns must be solid craft of some sort.

You allude to them being covert government assets. And I favour the E.T. hypothesis. Another theory is they are just us... coming back in time from Earth's distant future. I have often heard of the ufonauts being called 'masters of time and space'. Who knows for sure where the real truth lies.

Radar returns can be caused by simple non solid things such as temperature inversions. A solid object is absolutely not needed. Refractive index changes can even do it. Lots of things can that aren't solid.

How does swamp gas rate? (lol)

Everyone knows radar returns under certain conditions can be anomalous. However, to suggest over 100 contacts from the USS Princeton’s sophisticated array and experienced operators are all wrong and not connecting with a solid craft is just wishful thinking, clutching at straws, or both.

Well the joke's on ufologists if they think solid objects are the only thing that can reliably fool radar. Especially sophisticated state of the art radar systems.

Sometimes researching outside of ufology's dogma facilitates the endeavor of ufological inquiry better.

Nothing wrong with beer mate. I loves me some beer too. A nice cold VB would be awesome right now.

Also, a few beers can cause you to think out of the box which can in turn bring new insights you wouldn't normally come onto.

Either way one if the most beautiful things in the world is an esky packed with ice and beer. A lawn chair and an esky...its a great way to skywatch for UAPs

G’day Yowie88,
Welcome to the discussion. I would have thought it was the ‘men in black’ that flying saucer aware people should worry about…

As bassplyr said, thinking outside the box is good. It is so often the way to new discoveries. There are certainly some amazing creatures in our oceans. The octopus, for example, has DNA that confounds scientists. Their genetic code is so strange it could be alien. The octopus appears to be utterly different from all other animals on this planet. Panspermia theories anyone?

There must be thousands of undiscovered species living in the depths of the oceans… and some are very likely to be of enormous size! Your thoughts on the possible organic nature aspect reminds me of interesting things I have read about UFO craft themselves actually being alive! Some UFOs may be millions of years more advanced than us. So with a little imagination, anything is possible. :D
