I suppose that could be a possible scenario, but something tells me that such a vessel wouldn't have the need to escape from anyone. It can slowly rise out of the water without so much as a drip and completely silent, then accelerate in less than a second's time fast enough to disappear entirely from view, but it has to run away from subs or torpedoes?


I totally agree with you, so perhaps it was being chased by something other than subs and torpedoes?

A craft of similar capabilities from another faction? Or they weren't being chased by anyone and just felt like showing off.


I had not thought of it being chased by something with comparable tech, but you're right...that is entirely possible. The one thing that makes me lean toward this being a deliberate sighting is the description of it slowly coming out of the water. If it had come shooting out at speed, I'd have assumed the opposite. But maybe slow is the only speed at which those craft can exit the water...some limitation that makes it vulnerable for a few seconds. But once it's clear of the water, then it's gone in a flash.

I wonder if radar in the area might have picked up a signature from its pursuer, if there was one. I wonder if anyone is looking.

But my guess is as good as anyone's, and there are perhaps benevolent "visitors" but altruism isnot high on my list of "visitor" virtues.

My apologies if I take a negative view of the subject and often my wording can be not as gentle as it should be.


To be fair, we've not been given a very sunny outlook regarding ET life...either we're conditioned to fear them or we're at such a severe deficit of real information that suggests otherwise that we have no choice but to see the threat first rather than any benevolent intentions toward humanity. I personally believe there are both, just as there are on this planet. I believe that it is part of the delicate balance of existence. But then again, I believe there is a place where science and spirituality converge, and that's not a very popular opinion around here.

Don't apologize, please. I, too, tend to come off as abrasive when that is not my intention at all. I simply type how I speak and I'm very direct. And I would much rather not argue...no one learns anything that way.

So what does your gut tell you this thing was? Terrestrial? ET? Secret Space Program? Good guys or bad guys?

If there are non terrestrial craft in the Earth's oceans, I have to believe the US Navy knows "of" them. That is a big part of what the navy does, knowing what is out there and where.

Of course, it is possible they might be very quiet and hard to track.

Yes, that's what I'm suggesting. Someone posted sighting reports from shore that coincide with the event in the OP. It's a few pages back...I'm sorry but I don't remember who posted it. I don't know how many miles away they were. At least one stated that they saw the rig and boats out there when it happened. I suppose it could have been multiple different sightings in the same general area at the same time. Anything is possible.

Well the F117 Night Hawk was secret for well over a decade before it came into the white world, and the Military has many black projects from the 70's they still have not declassified, so why do you think they would openly show this one if its way more advanced?


Desensitization perhaps? Maybe they're going to reveal some new tech and want to gauge reaction? I've been trying to reconcile that in my mind also...I just can't shake the feeling that this was purposeful. But why?

But that doesn't mean there is nothing out there , it just means the existence of UFOS is denied and ridiculed on so many levels that ufology has become obsolete.



You can thank Hollywood for that.

I have to agree with you. If they're down there, the Navy knows they are. If it is in fact non-terrestrial, then would it be safe to assume our military is OK with that?

The military might have no choice. In other words, they may not like it but can do nothing about it.

That's obviously swamp gas that got caught in a thermal pocket and refracted the light of venus.

Oh deer!

Government knows about them for more than 60 years. Either they're working with them or aliens do not want to be revealed, yet.

Or both.

Sight over water. I'm 55 miles east of Chicago and can see several buildings a few times a month when conditions are just right. my house is about 20 feet above the lake. 80 Miles things would be real small and hard to tell what you saw.

I'll give it a maybe possible because of what I can see when conditions are right

Could be related to the overall shape of the craft and the viewing angle.

The b2 from the side looks like a tear drop.

That's not an apples to apples comparison. You may only be 20 feet above the lake (very close to lake level), but the buildings, while they begin at close to lake level, extend much higher. Not to mention you'd have to identify specifically where you are and specifically what buildings you can see to research the exact elevations of each to factor that in. I have no doubt you can see them, however that is due to how tall the buildings are.

We're talking about a much simpler concept: people on shore (very close to sea level) supposedly being able to see something that's also very close to sea level (40 feet above the water) at a distance of 80 miles. It would be mathematically impossible. The curve of the earth would prevent it.

HOWEVER, re-reading the description it doesn't say they were "80 miles out to sea". It says they were "80 miles southeast of New Orleans". There are points of land far southeast of New Orleans because of the way the land juts out into the Gulf. So I'll have to retract my earlier statement. I don't think it's impossible for folks on shore to have seen it, depending on the exact position of the boat. Without coordinates there's no way to do the math.

That probably wouldn't be a very comforting thought for a lot of people. It would mean that either our government is blatantly lying to us and secretly working with ET groups or that there exists an ET race that has free reign on our planet and, unbeknownst to the general public, are untouchable by any terrestrial forces. Either way, it means we've been deceived by our own people.

Whatever the origins of the craft might be, it would be nice in such a scenario to think that someone out there is deliberately revealing things to the public so that people will have a reason to push harder for the truth. There are multiple sightings recorded from that same day that describe an oval or teardrop or triangular shaped object, in a variety of locations. Maybe all of them were deliberate. Maybe we've got friends in high places...or low in this case...who are trying to get our attention. By the response to this thread, I'd say if that's what they're doing, it's working.

I'm sorry...I should have clarified earlier that the reports I skimmed over were of the object in the air, not actually coming up out of the water. They saw it take off. I don't know where the sightings were as far as distance in miles but one report said the witness could see the vessels out there from his or her perspective. I can say for certain that people I personally know heard a loud booming sound as far away as Biloxi, and it was different from a sonic boom...more like thunder. Well, there was a witness report of hearing the boom too and if I'm not mistaken, that person was in the New Orleans vicinity.

I would imagine a company with 500m to several billion dollars invested in an drill ship, rig or platform wouldn't be concerned about it being lost due to consumer grade electronics.



Hopefully they'd feel more strongly about the loss of lives that would result if one of those things goes boom.

You're right, it definitely does! That could easily translate to an oval shape, too.

Sadly, it's often more about the company and the money it makes. That's why the Deeepwater Horizon was lost.

The OP link story says sighting took place 80 miles SE of New Orleans and the video above says 80 miles SW or New Orleans. Just an observation, there is quite a bit of difference in the two locations. The second location is most definitely shallow shelf as opposed to a deep water possibility originally stated in the link.
