F18 Navy Pilot Uses His Own Smartphone To Record UFOs: Pentagon Confirms

There are so many disclosures about UFOs right now that it’s tough to cover and stay up. Many of these leaks are reaching mainstream media, but not all of them, and it appears that during the last five years or so, there has been a mainstream media story that has captured the interest of the public. The New York Times published an article on three movies supplied by the Pentagon of US Navy UFO sightings, in which UFOs executed moves no known man-made piece of technology is capable of, defying our understanding of physics and aerodynamics.

In one of these encounters, the object fell from 60,000 feet to near sea level and began hovering — all in milliseconds. That identical device could materialize in other areas in what appeared to be instantaneous transfer, all while allegedly predicting the Navy pilot’s future position.

The New York Times just published a report on “off-world cars” being recovered. When I came upon this, it reminded me of Dr. Edgar Mitchell’s comment from the Apollo 14 mission, “sure, there has been wrecked craft, and bodies retrieved.”

Keep in mind that many similar encounters have been published through declassified paperwork over the last two decades, but only one event from the Navy has received significant mainstream media publicity.

Another recurring element in this occurrence appears to be the failure of vital electrical instruments on military planes, such as the inability to fire their armament or the air radar going berserk. You may read about a case from Iran that is a good illustration of this here.

So, what happened?

For the past few years, the United States Department of Defense’s “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force” (or UAPTF) has been busy briefing lawmakers, Intelligence Community stakeholders, and the highest levels of the United States military on encounters with mysterious airborne objects that defy conventional explanations.

Christopher Mellon, Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, tweeted about a possible leak, which brought it to my notice. It arrived in the form of several films and photographs recorded by Navy troops. If you want to watch the video footage, you may find it in this article. The images below were taken with an iPhone by an F18 pilot.

According to a recent The Debrief piece,

“The Pentagon has acknowledged that US Navy troops recorded multiple leaked photographs and a video exhibiting unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAP, involving instances presently under investigation by the Department of Defense’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force” (UAPTF). Susan Gough, a Pentagon spokesperson, informed the Debrief in an email.”

Susan Gough, the founder of the famed government document site The Black Vault, verified the authenticity of the tapes in a statement. He also did a fascinating interview with former CIA Director James Woolsey.

Here are a few of the images obtained by a F/A-18 fighter jet’s rear-seat weapons system officer.

On April 6, 2021, KLAS Las Vegas investigative journalist George Knapp revealed the initial photo, now known as the “Acorn,” as well as two more freshly leaked photographs indicating odd flying objects. The other two photographs, dubbed “the metallic blimp” and “spherical” by Knapp, were apparently obtained within 30 minutes of each other on the same day. The other item in the second image appears to be transparent spherical.

You may see a close-up of that precise object in the first shot of the cover photo (above).

The photograph below was shot on August 27, 1956, above Fort MacLeod, Alberta, Canada, by two Royal Canadian Air Force pilots. (“Physical Evidence Associated With UFO Reports” – The Sturrock Panel Report – Electromagnetic Effects).

The pilots were flying four F86 Sabre jet planes in formation. One of the pilots reported the sighting as a “bright light that was strongly defined as disk-shaped,” like “a shiny silver dollar sitting horizontal.” Another pilot was able to photograph the item, as shown below.

Then there are images that, although still up to interpretation, can help to broaden the mind a bit further. The image below is courtesy of Norman Bergrun, a scientist and engineer who participated in NASA’s Voyager program. He spent decades at NASA’s Ames Research Center. He also worked at Lockheed Martin, where he was in charge of the Polaris missile testing. The image was taken during the Voyager mission in 1980. That mission’s aim was to photograph Saturn, its rings, and its moons.

What is the image of? It’s a “luminous source” from Bergrun’s book “The Ringmakers of Saturn.” According to Bergrun, there are a number of huge vessels “proliferating” in the vicinity of Saturn and its moons. His book goes into a lot more depth. Extraterrestrial vessels, even of this scale, he believes, are a foregone conclusion.

Why Is It Important?

Again, recordings and images locked away within the black budget realm appear to be a reality, and it begs the question of what kind of video footage and photographs are being kept hidden from the public. For example, a document received through the CIA’s electronic reading room explains a study of the UFO phenomena conducted by Chinese and Russian academics more than a decade ago. It reads,

Scientists from the People’s Republic of China and the Soviet Far East have initiated a collaborative investigation into UFOs. The first congress of ufologists from both nations has concluded in the little coastal town of Dalnegorsk. The Soviet and Chinese anomalous phenomena specialists have devised a program for studying previously known instances, as well as arranged for direct sharing of video and photographic materials on new comparable phenomena.

I don’t think the public will ever know what exactly has been found about these things from official sources, and we’ll only get a “sanitized” form of “disclosure” that may or may not accurately depict the phenomena. Government and mainstream media outlets have long sought to distort our perceptions of significant issues and events.

The concept of a “threat” has been a prominent motif in mainstream UFO disclosure debates, which concerns many experts in the subject given that the behavior of these objects is not indicative of any form of danger. They’ve always used evasive maneuvers to dodge our planes. Many others have underlined this, including Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer in 2008, General Nathan Twining in the 1940s, and, most recently, Richard F. Haines, a top NASA research scientist for more than two decades.

According to the aforementioned Task Force:

The UAPTF was formed by the Department of Defense to better its understanding of, and obtain insight into, the nature and sources of UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon). The task force’s purpose is to identify, analyze, and categorize UAPs that may represent a danger to US national security.

Another recent comment from Dr. Jacques Vallée, a well-known UFO researcher, scientist, mathematician, and astrophysicist, addresses this problem.

We must cease viewing UFO incursions as a danger, which is the whole point of this new task force. As much as I respect the task force, my colleagues and I want to collaborate with them to the degree that we can provide knowledge or resources to what they do. But there’s more; this isn’t, and shouldn’t be regarded as a direct threat… With the phenomena we’re seeing, if they wanted to blow up those F18s, they’d do it. Obviously, that’s not the case, and labeling something as a threat simply because it’s unknown is a bad notion.

Why should UFOs be any different? The mainstream media and government are gradually establishing a reputation for influencing the people’s minds on a variety of issues; why should UFOs be any different? More on that debate may be found here and here.

The Bottom Line.

The key message from this essay is that we should not rely exclusively on governments, mainstream media, and intelligence organizations for information concerning the UFO phenomena. This applies to everything. Mainstream media has long been able to “manage” public perception, essentially informing us when we are and are not permitted to investigate particular cultural issues. Consider the UFO phenomenon: it was mocked six years ago, but after mainstream society addressed it, it became accepted. Why?

Most of us now rely only on television for information rather than conducting our own study, leaving us vulnerable to significant amounts of perception manipulation on any given issue.

Having studied this phenomenon for more than 15 years, I can assure you that it is broad and, as I have stated in nearly all of my publications on the subject, has significant consequences that affect every element of life. These sightings have been documented in a variety of forms for thousands of years, and just as there was evidence for the existence of UFOs when they were considered a “conspiracy theory,” I can tell you that there is very strong evidence, based on my research, that these objects do not originate from any human being on planet Earth.

This is a huge paradigm-altering issue that has the potential to extend human consciousness and alter our perceptions of ourselves, the cosmos, and the nature of reality. Finally, I believe the phenomenon, in some unexplainable way, can be a great catalyst to help us look within, observe ourselves, and ask ourselves why we live the way we do and do the things we do when we have the potential to do so much better and create a human experience where everyone can thrive.
