According to Chris Ciaccia of Fox News, “The U.S. Navy’s acknowledgment that the 2004 videos of an encounter with a UFO were real has caused much consternation.  Now, a new report says two ‘unknown individuals’ told several Naval officers who witnessed the event, known as the USS Nimitz UFO incident, to delete evidence.”

Sounds like “Men in Black!”

“The report, published in Popular Mechanics, cites interviews with five Navy veterans who discussed what they experienced at the time while they were sailing on the USS Princeton on Nov. 14, 2004, off the coast of southern California.”

“One of the men, Gary Voorhis, said he was chatting with some of the radar techs on the USS Princeton when he heard them talking about ‘ghost tracks’ and ‘clutter’ on the radar system, a state-of-the-art Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) and AEGIS [A name taken from ancient Greek mythology.  An ‘aegis’ was something that offered physical protection. In some stories, it was the thundercloud where Zeus kept the thunderbolts he used as weapons. In others, the aegis was a magical protective cloak made from the skin of the goat that had suckled Zeus as an infant.] Combat System.”

“The air control systems were taken down, recalibrated to clear out the supposed false alarms when the tracks got clearer, he said.”

‘“Once we finished all the recalibration and brought it back up, the tracks were actually sharper and clearer,’ Voorhis told the news outlet. ‘Sometimes they’d [the UFOs] be at an altitude of 80,000 or 60,000 feet. Other times they’d be around 30,000 feet, going like 100 knots [115mph]. Their radar cross sections didn’t match any known aircraft; they were 100 percent red [unidentified]. No squawk, no IFF (Identification Friend or Foe).’”

“Operations Specialist Senior Chief Kevin Day said in the documentary film, The Nimitz Encounters, that his job was to ‘man the radars and ID everything that flew in the skies.’”

“On or around Nov. 10, approximately 100 miles off the San Diego coast, Day noticed the strange ‘tracks’ on the radar.”

‘“The reason why I say they were weird [is] because they were appearing in groups of five to 10 at a time and they were pretty closely spaced to each other. And they were [at] 28,000 feet going a hundred knots tracking south,’ Day said in the documentary.”

“The Navy eventually sent out fighter jets to get a look at the object[s], with one succeeding in getting it [one] on video–the now-famous black-and-white tape that was released publicly in 2017. Along with that tape, there were two other video recordings from years later that were released publicly by the New York Times, Fox News has previously reported.”

“The videos in question, [are] known as ‘FLIR1,’ ‘Gimbal’ and ‘GoFast,’”

“The first video of the unidentified object was taken on Nov. 14, 2004, and shot by the F-18's gun camera. The second video was taken on Jan. 21, 2015, and shows another aerial vehicle with pilots commenting on how strange it is. The third video was also taken on Jan. 21, 2015, but it is unclear whether the third video was of the same object or a different one.”

“After the incident with the ‘Tic Tac’-shaped object that Voorhis said gave off ‘a kind of a phosphorus glow’ at night while darting around, two ‘unknown individuals’ took all of the data recordings.”

Did they hold up a silver thing, and ask you all to look at it as it gave off a big red flash?

‘“They were not on the ship earlier, and I didn’t see them come on. I’m not sure how they got there,’ said P.J. Hughes, who was miles away from the Princeton, and was unaware of the unidentified objects, in the interview.”

“Hughes added that he was told by his commanding officer to turn over the recently secured hard drives of the airborne early-warning aircraft, the E-2 Hawkeye.”

‘“We put them in the bags, he took them, then he and the two anonymous officers left,’ Hughes said.”

“On the Princeton, Voorhis described a similar situation.”

‘“These two guys show up on a helicopter, which wasn’t uncommon, but shortly after they arrived, maybe 20 minutes [later], I was told by my chain of command to turn over all the data recordings for the AEGIS system,’ Voorhis added in the interview with Popular Mechanics.”

“It may be convenient to blame ‘unknown individuals’ for the disappearance of the tapes, but Cmdr. David Fravor, one of the pilots who was able to get a close view of the object, said people accidentally erased and recorded over them.”

Uh huh.

‘“You know how it is when you go to and from cruise,’ Fravor said in a January interview on The Fighter Pilot Podcast. ‘Someone goes, “What are these? Hey, they look like blank 8mm tapes. We’ll just use them.”’”

Ya…, we know how it goes alright!

“Earlier this year, the Navy issued new classified guidelines on how to report such instances ‘in response to unknown, advanced aircraft flying into or near Navy strike groups or other sensitive military facilities and formations.’”

Uh, ya…, the “guidelines” make it clear that anyone involved should turn everything over to “The Men in Black” immediately and keep their mouths shut next time!

Mr. Erickson Rules will keep you posted if any other news surfaces regarding this whole UFO conundrum.

UFOs are back in the headlines!

I must admit that I have an interest and a curiosity in the subject of UFOs.

On one hand my interest and curiosity lies with the possibility that we are being visited by extraterrestrials, and on the other hand we have the U.S. government seemingly trying to cover up this possible UFO activity, which peeks my interest as well.

Taking the “laws” of nature and physics into consideration, it is extremely likely that there are other intelligent life forms out there in the universe, but it is also extremely unlikely they’ve been able to visit us.

The closest star system to Earth is Alpha Centauri, which is 4.22 million light years away; meaning if we could travel at the speed of light (which we can’t) it would take us 4.22 million years to get there.

And that’s the closest star!

See what I mean when I say “it is also extremely unlikely they’ve been able to visit us.”

But…, we make those assumptions based only on knowing what we know.  We don’t know what we don’t know yet!  Science learns more every day, and Man’s limitations are changed every day as well.  So who knows?

But that begs the question, if nothing is happening regarding UFOs, why the need to cover anything up?

If nothing is happening regarding UFOs, why the need to draft new guidelines to report these “encounters?”

According to Christopher Carbone for Fox News, this is exactly what the U.S. Nay is currently doing.  “The U.S. Navy is drafting new guidelines for pilots and other employees to report encounters with ‘unidentified aircraft.’”

“The new effort comes in response to more sightings of unknown, advanced aircraft flying into or near Navy strike groups or other sensitive military facilities and formations, according to the Navy.”

‘“There have been a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years,’ the Navy said in a statement to Politico, which first reported the move.”

“For safety and security concerns, the Navy and the [U.S. Air Force] take these reports very seriously and investigates each and every report.”

“The initiative comes amid increasing interest from lawmakers and the public following the release of classified files from the Defense Intelligence Agency which revealed the funding of projects that investigated UFOs, wormholes, alternate dimensions and other obscure topics…”

Hmmm.

“That research, first reported by The New York Times in 2017, was funded by the Department of Defense under its Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) and reportedly spent $25 million conducting studies and trying to evaluate multiple unexplained events.”

“Chris Mellon, a former Pentagon intelligence official and ex-staffer on the Senate Intelligence Committee, told Politico that establishing a more structured, official means of reporting what the military now calls ‘unexplained aerial phenomena’ (UAP), rather than ‘unidentified flying objects,’ would be a ‘sea change’ (a profound or notable transformation).”

“Right now, we have a situation in which UFOs and UAPs are treated as anomalies to be ignored rather than anomalies to be explored,” he added.

Christopher Wilson of Yahoo News adds that, “The Navy has updated its guidelines for pilots to report unidentified flying objects, the New York Times reported, following a series of mysterious sightings off the East Coast.”

“The Navy pilots [involved with these sightings] will be part of a new History Channel series, ‘Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation.’”

“The newspaper says pilots based on the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt saw the objects — some of which they described as spinning like tops and reaching 30,000 feet — during the summer of 2014 through March 2015 in training exercises off the Atlantic coast from Virginia to Florida.  In 2014, an F/A-18 Super Hornet pilot reported nearly colliding with one [a UFO]. Two pilots were quoted by name in the story. They said they began to see the objects after receiving upgraded radar systems.”

‘“People have seen strange stuff in military aircraft for decades,’ Lt. Ryan Graves said. ‘We’re doing this very complex mission, to go from 30,000 feet, diving down.  It would be a pretty big deal to have something up there.’”

Ya…, I’d say so.

There have been other such reports over the years.

The truth is out there my friends.

The truth is out there.
