So one of the videos is now a confirmed to be a zoom effect as opposed to an actual object?
I'm trying to understand that highly detailed debunking.
If this is true... what the hell are these guys thinking? They would have to realize that it would get debunked. Was this whole project set up to
Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself. Curious to hear if these videos provide any evidence at all of something unexplainable by current aircraft
Don't get carried away immediately, as many people seem to do
This is where the data leads us, with the official record of the
as main source:
On Nov 14, 2004 the Princeton led two F18’s to an unidentified target which the Princeton had on their (highly advanced) radar.
According to the Princeton radar, the unidentified target was at a distance of 40 nautical miles, a height of 25000 feet and traveling at 100 knots
(100 nautical miles per hour).
The F18’s, on arrival, spotted a large unidentified object in the water with steam/smoke/churning around the object. The object was much larger than
a submarine and resembled a downed airliner.
While descending from 24000 feet to get a closer look, one of the F18’s sighted another unidentified object at around 4000 feet with the following
- capsule shaped
- 25-30 feet in length
- no visible markings
- no glass
- unable to achieve a radar lock on it
- unable to identify it
The other F18 was higher and confirmed these events.
The capsule passed underneath the F18, which began a turn to acquire the capsule. But the capsule made an even sharper turn and began climbing at a
rate that was too much for the F18 to keep up with. The capsule outran the F18 and was lost in the haze.
Later, another F18 was able to get some footage of an unidentified object with the ATFLIR. This object, too, was detected by the Princeton’s radar.
The footage shows a capsule shaped object of unknown size at an unknown distance. The F18 was not able to get a radar lock on the object.
So yeah, it's still by definition a UFO.
At first sight the FLIR1 footage looks spectacular, it also fooled me because when you see the video you do not realize how small the field-of-view
actually is, that the object which seems to sit stable in the center of the image is actually moving, and that the zoom factor is enlarged in the last
The question remains of course why the ATFLIR lock on the object was broken. Did the unidentified object somehow play a role in this? You do see a
couple of strange flashes on the ATFLIR screen just before the lock is broken.
