In my view, I think the message that you received is the key to identification.
There are allegedly a number of military mind control experiments taking place, many of which have been discussed here on ATS. There have also been
many UFO sightings whereby the witness or witnesses have reported receiving messages or information in various forms, Bentwaters is just one
The details of many black projects have been leaked to the public over the years but to my limited knowledge a craft like the one you saw is not one
of them, unless of course it has remained 100% secret.
So in this case, unless other hard facts come forward, supposition at this time is all we have.
So I'm going to take a guess at what this craft may have been doing.
We have a craft moving across the sky, broadcasting a subliminal message which I can only guess may have been something to the effect that the portal
/conduit was open and ready for channeling or broadcast.
I say conduit because this represents messages that have been left within crop circles, such as the 2002 Crabwood binary code crop circle.
Now if this is the type of message being broadcast, who is the intended recipient?
If it were military, could it have been directed toward ground units in the vicinity or other craft above?
If it were extraterrestrial, could it also be directed toward military or extraterrestrial contacts above or below, or toward the general population
as a whole in order to 'wake up' those that may not know they have these subliminal communicatory powers, but given the sparsely populated area, this
appears doubtful, unless of course the message was intended to reach only you and your witness.
May I also ask, did your witness receive this exact same message or thought as you? (Apologies if you have already provided this info).
Your image depicts very uniform blocks of light, is there any way these could have been blocks of ASCII binary which would have had varied block sizes
Of course none of what I write may be relevant to your sighting or answer your direct question of Military or ET but I think we have to look at the
broader picture here.
Had you only seen the lights in the sky, then it would be a pretty typical sighting of a unique lighting array.
However you experienced much more than this, by way of the broadcast / thought transfer. That's what's interesting and unique here over and above the
object. If we can't identify the object then we have to analyze the what other information is available, without that, we can only go so far.
I understand that the finer details of this case may help toward corroboration but if you can provide further information regarding the message
without giving away the actual wording per se, this may help, but I respect your decision if you choose not to.
