Skip to comments.Not Aliens, but Maybe Drones? New Reports Detail U.S. Navy’s UFO Encounters
Posted on 05/19/2020 1:34:46 AM PDT by AggregateThreat
In one particular report from March 2014, which refers to the UFOs as unidentified aerial devices, a pilot described seeing a metallic object that was small in size, approximately the size of a suitcase, and silver in color.
The pilot apparently came within only 1,000 feet of the object, but was unable to positively determine the identity of the aircraft. The pilot then attempted to regain visual contact with the aircraft, but was unable.

These drone sightings refer to sightings on the opposite coast of the United States, and are not related at all to what was seen by the eye witnesses/pilots.
your FR name is the same name as your website?!?!?!?
and you just joined.
you got b.lls I’ll tell you that :)
Won’t be around long but got b.lls.
Story posted several times already (originally covered by the The War Zone).
In the statement that says they “are not currently within the U.S. inventory nor in any foreign inventory that we are aware of,” it says the foreign inventory is not fully known. That opens up the possibility of a ongoing top secret program used to monitor activity in the United States. When these spy craft appear in U.S. skies, people think they are from another planet. This type of spying goes on among several nations. It’s just that no one wants to tell about it and would rather let people blame it on the myth of extra terrestrial beings checking out us earthlings.
We got us a blog pimp.
The emerging surmise by many UFO researchers is that most UFOs are from alternate dimensions, from an advanced hidden civilization long resident on the planet, or from a future, advanced version of mankind. While the small size of the objects observed by the USN argues against their being from a distant alien civilization, it does not of necessity indicate a mundane origin in contemporary military technology.
yeah but to be fair he didn’t come at us pretending.
His name matching the website made it pretty easy to figure out :)
So he’s either semi honest or mostly stupid :)
Most likely RC aircraft.....RC hobbyists have some incredible planes, many are miniature jets with actual turbine engines.......
And if some civilization is out there, and no doubt there is, why would they want to bother with us? Mankind has a disturbing predilection with it's own destruction. Were I some advanced civilization I'd avoid this place. And if some advanced civilization did happen to notice us they might not come with benign motives. They might come here and kill us all and harvest what they want from the planet.
‘’semi honest or mostly stupid’’. LOL!!
I believe that the reasons to visit Earth are: (1) scientific curiosity; (2) the potential for useful DNA and whole biological specimens; and (3), as a waystation and base for further exploration. Similar reasons impelled and guided exploration throughout human history.
With that line of thinking, we might as well believe that we’re the only form of life in the universe.
On a nerdy tangential note: the internal consistency of fantasy/sci-fi plots is of passing interest, and the same goes for the alien speculation game in real life. The idea that a race of aliens capable of interstellar travel would arrive to loot Earth presupposes the idea that Earth has something so rare and valuable that looting it would be worth the effort. If you stop to think about it, this pushes back in the direction of "rare Earth" theorizing, which militates against the likelihood of aliens in the first place.
In all the vastness of the universe, what makes Earth so special? Water? We think water is special because we depend on it. An alien race might not share that dependency -- but if it did, it is difficult to imagine that it would not have solved its own water problems long before it attained interstellar travel. Or that it would not have learned to melt ice. Or to combine hydrogen, oxygen, and an appropriate energy source. A water dependent star-faring race would probably understand the chemistry.
So what else does earth have that is found nowhere else, or that is exceedingly rare? It's hard to think of anything other than life itself, which as far as we know (so far) is still unique to Earth.
That leaves us with something on the order of dilithium crystals, which Star Trek technobabble tells us are exceedingly rare and -- surprise, surprise -- cannot be replicated. The latter is important because, in a sci-fi universe in which almost anything can be easily synthesized or replicated, the problem of scarcity has to be artificially reinvented so that it can be mined for plotlines. (Without scarcity problems, scriptwriters are reduced to sex, power, and insanity, which are all well and good but which tend to get stale after awhile). So: where are our dilithium crystals?
It’s not possible to identify an object as “suitcase size” under those conditions.
Scientific curiosity would indeed be the likely motive assuming that alien rationality parallels our own. An alien race capable of interstellar travel would presumably have solved its own resource problems long before it reached Earth. If such a race were capable of mining Earth, it would be capable of mining other planets and asteroids. Unless we hypothesize that our alien visitors would be very near neighbors — quite possible — and that Earth is their nearest port of call, resource issues seem an unlikely motivation.
New DNA and new useful species on Earth would also be a likely attraction for aliens.
I didn’t say we were. Go back and read the post.
Unless they brought Earth’s DNA library here in the first place. Where’s the guy with the hair?
