I'll be honest. I saw something once and the confirmation was so enthralling (read: terrifying) that I couldn't move. It felt like I was literally glued to the ground. I didn't think about grabbing my phone in the maybe 30 seconds I had to do it, it made me reevaluate life, bro. Like, 30 seconds of philosophy on the meaning of life, my purpose...Just everything. I couldn't tear my eyes from it.

It isn't like casually talking about the subject on a web site where you have as much time as you need to make your point. When it happened, I don't think I was capable of making that choice, tbh. It blew my # mind. So, I understand why they don't have proof. I'm not attempting to sway you one way or the other. I am saying if you haven't had an up and personal view of something like this, it's harder for me to properly describe the sensation of it to you.

Mine was a black cube in a cloud in SE OH, btw.

I saw some craft very low flying just above the tree tops heading the opposite direction I was heading in and not very quickly. It took me a few seconds to realize what I was seeing, slammed on the breaks and pulled off the road. By the time I got my phone or of my pocket it was too far away. Even if you are not freightend it's still rather difficult.

I wish I could have turned around but there was median separating traffic. As for what it looked liked, the only thing I've ever seen that resembled it was that helicopter drone that crashed at Osama bin laden's compound in Pakistan.

interestingly. Seeing triangles rise up out of the water is not an isolated thing. I was talking to the captain and crew of a local fishing charter in southern california two years ago who all swore the night before in the early hours they saw a large triangle emerge from the water in the channel islands hover for a few seconds with water dripping off very slowly until it powered up a few seconds later and zoomed off over the horizon.

(Crazy bassplyr speculation begins below)
The whole coastline from texas to florida has a large amount of triangle sightings. Keep in mind you have a nasa facility on the border of Louisiana and mississippi hidden back in a swamp. You have eglin. Mcdill along that coast (both bases are known for running spooky or classified programs) florida has a lot of nasa facilities too.

It would be likely that there are many military projects going on in the gulf.

I believe the sailors saw one of ours.

Giant triangles do exist if you look at what companies like JP Aerospace are doing. They build heavy lift 1200 foot long chevron shaped (like the pheonix lights) dirigibles that can take large items just up into low earth orbit. If a public company is doing this. It might be likely the military was 30 years earlier. What about all those flaps of 1000 foot long triangles and chevrons in the 80s over hudson valley, new york. Probably the militaries version of said tech.

The JP Aerospace platforms are being designed to have a film of electric charge along the skin of the vehicles to repel atmosphere and help mitigate drag. They are looking to use MHD thrusters to propel it. Granted its designed to go slow. But whats to say the military version doesnt have a few bells and whistles thrown in.

Another thing to keep in mind. Vehicles such as these from close up are often reported with a thin film of plasma surounding it (whether the plasma is for propulsion or atmospheric friction mitigation or something else) a laminate of plasma seperated from a vehicle may be able to function as a parallel plate wave guide to create a dielectric field that can regulate the refractive index of light in it via controlling the voltage travelling through the cavity inbetween the plasma layer and the vehicle. Inducing whats known as a Kerr effect. I wont go into mlitary uses for such an idea but, that region with the altered refractive index then can function like a lense for light. So its concievable the triangle is not as big as it appears but the lensing of light makes it appear so. Its concievable the triangle did not zip off at light speed but instead did some lensing trick to cast its light elsewhere or to simply cloak and appear to disappear.

Plasma doesnt like water too much but maybe its utilizing a similar concept where the effects are the same but isnt effected by water as much.

One thing to consider with this report. If the vehicle is literally 1200 feet long and it submerges. Thats literally like trying to submerge a aircraft carrier and swim it around underwater. I bet that even though the gulfs seabed is pretty shallow and featureless that there are still only a few places in the gulf one could safely submerge and cruise around something that big. So that narrows down where it could possibly be entering and egressing the gulf waters. If they saw it launch from near a bunch of oil rigs. Then that is possibly one of the areas thats safe or navigatable for the big guy. If thats the case i bet that there are a lot more folks working that area that have seen this sort of phenomena and that this captain is just one of the few to start talking about it.

Well I see ....

My point was it to get more precise definitions . I guess every one is fine with the Alien/ufo terminology.

No one is doing brain surgery offshore in a work environment...good grief.

Yes there are dangers, no different than being a carnival ride operator...

Skilled people have A LOT of time...i know.


I'm sorry but I can't see what the amount of leisure time they've got has to do at all with what we're discussing here. I'm not sure what you're getting at. They might have all the time in the world, but that does not change the fact that electronics are not allowed outside crew quarters on oil rigs. Were you trying to make a point about a different subject??

Oh wow, nice. Maybe that'll help clear up all this apparent confusion about the absence of footage from the "pics or it didn't happen" frame of mentality.

From personal experience when ypu see something extrordinary you are most often mesmerised and in the moment. You just simply dont think aboumotaking a photo. Youre too busy trying to take in as much detail about the experience to even think of fiddling for your camera.

I can also see it along this line:

People out on the ocean watch a lot of empty sea. They are not expecting news worthy events at any second. I suspect seeing this event creates a mental state where a person watches it to understand what they are seeing. At 40 seconds, it's not much time.

They might have been caught even more off guard by a 250 ft USO/UFO rising out of the water and taking off at warp speed. Just saying.

It's really interesting how some of the descriptions read on MUFON from that same date....they range from "teardrop" to "triangle". The report from the boat stated the giant craft was an oval shape...yet some of the reports from people on shore regarding that same exact sighting from their view called it a triangle. So that's fascinating to me. I wonder if it has some kind of cloaking technology that causes it to look different from other know, like those pictures that show one object at one angle but from another, it's a totally different object?

I think it's ours too, personally. Not that I reject the idea of it being ET, because I don't at all, but I think it's far more likely that this alleged craft was operated by humans and they certainly didn't just make an oopsie and accidentally pop up all willy nilly in full view of dozens of people like that. I'm betting we'll start having a lot more sightings like this in the very near future.

he craft rose up out of the water (Gulf of Mexico) about 40 feet, no water was dripping from the craft. Within a split second the craft disappeared at a 30 degree angle into the sky. Speed appeared to faster than speed of a light turning on in a room. Within seconds it had disappeared completely.

I can say for sure that the craft was dark colored, oval in shape and made no sound whatsoever.

Good find and it certainly isn't the first time this type of behaviour has been reported - there are plenty more accounts of unknown objects emerging from (or submerging into) the world's oceans at the thread below and some of the reports from naval officers, ship's captains, crewmen, coastguards, submariners, fishermen, airline pilots, policemen, sonar operators etc.. are pretty mindboggling.

That is simply not accurate, it used to be 'allowed' in non-PPE areas on platforms, not so as of late.

Video Taken From Rig of OSV in Storm

Some companies may still adhere to that old rule, most to do not. On the OSV, which is what this thread is about, there is no such absolute rule.

What I was "getting at" is the only place you are told to turn your phone off is in the Helo ot in an area prone to gas and signs are posted all over. The OSV, no such rule.

Reports of Ariel phenomena off the shores of Mississippi. Wonder where the location of the sighting was from the OP report?

That was my first guess to check youtube for video evidence on that date from the shores.

Thank you for giving me yet another perspective on the situation. I was sitting here last night thinking about that 40 second window.

I saw something a few days ago that was not an aircraft, from my back yard. It didn't seem to be moving ridiculously fast, so I decided to chance going for the binoculars. At that moment, the object was directly above my head. So I sprinted into the house, grabbed them and ran back out there. It was still visible, but in the few seconds it took to grab the binocs, it had already traveled double the distance from my view of it.

I cannot say how many seconds elapsed from the time I noticed it til I looked at it through the glasses, but I'm certain it was longer than forty seconds. I did have my phone and did get a pic of it as well. But I have to wonder how many precious seconds I spent looking at the object, while my brain tried to categorize what I was seeing. I didn't want to look away because I wanted to see as much of it as I could. I had to make myself go get those binoculars, and I was lucky as hell that it was still there when I got back.

That was just a distant object that I happened to catch sight of...had I been looking the opposite direction, I'd have missed it entirely. So, translating that to a forty second window where the object is close enough to see detail and larger than a house, coming up out of nowhere, I have to say honestly that I wouldn't have dared to go for those binoculars. I wouldn't have wanted to take my eyes off it to get the camera. In fact, I probably wouldn't have thought to do such a thing if I were to witness something like that...I'd have been too gobsmacked and too worried that it would disappear and I'd miss it.

Someone said earlier in the thread...maybe it was you...that until you see something like that for yourself, you cannot know how you would react. In my situation, I had my phone in my back pocket, but I didn't care about a stupid photo. I wanted the binoculars because I wanted to SEE it.

Just because it is over the ocean does not mean that it is without a doubt a OVI or whatever they call them. Hi Karl!

I have experienced similar. Seeing something outside and knowing if I leave to go into the house I may miss much of the sighting. I spend a lot of hours outside, day and night, and there is rarely anything of interest along these lines. Lulled into being unprepared.

I often skywatch and have done the should i run and get my binoculars or not thing often. I usually opt not to because things can fly out of your field of view or be hard to spot again if i do run to get the binoculars. Easier sometimes just to swuint and watch as best you can and not go rummaging around for stuff.

I am from the area where this sighting happened. And I know a whole slew of people who work on those rigs out there. They have satellite phones, etc. to communicate with the family, but other than that, they're isolated out there for months. They don't bother taking a phone, for two reasons. First, there's no point because they rarely get signal. Second, they are required to leave all electronics in the living quarters unless told otherwise. There may indeed be companies out there with a more relaxed environment, but that is not by any means common.

We can argue this all day, but it's only one possible explanation for no photos or footage. And it's really not relevant to anyone but the people who insist on photo evidence before they can discuss the many other aspects of the sighting itself. So I will simply agree to disagree with you. It's not worth arguing about.

Yes, I agree. I posted a bit down there from my own experience...and that's just a recent example. I can only imagine how it would feel to witness something on the level that these guys did. Amazing.

posted on Mar, 27 2017 @ 12:48 PM
Lol, I gave you guys the reason for no pics/video on the FIRST page of this thread, and 9 pages later there are still folks not able to grasp the rather simple concept...

What's up with that?

Some people want to believe that a picture has to be taken by someone. It just doesn't always work out in real life.
