Why Scientists Don’t Freak Out About UFO Videos

If you’ve been online at all recently you’ve probably seen this video.  This is one of two clips released by the Department of Defense.  Both videos show a thermal image of an unidentified flying object. The videos have been widely shared and scrutinized and a lot of people think that this is the first real evidence that extraterrestrials exist and that they’re visiting us here on earth. There’s just one thing – most people in the scientific community don’t think these videos prove anything.

People have been claiming to see UFOs for decades  and countless videos purporting to show alien aircraft have been popping up since the invention of film, but this video is unique. It was released by the Department of Defense which found the video noteworthy enough to study, then release, which is a first for the US government.

Until 2012 the DoD says it ran a secret advanced aerospace threat identification program. The program was funded by 22 million dollars worth of  “black money” those are funds the Pentagon sets aside for classified programs.  Both airplanes see disturbance in the water and a white 40 foot long tic-tac shaped object. This commander was one of the Navy pilots that spotted the UFO get over to the eight o’clock position “It’s at about the two o’clock position and I decide I’m gonna go and see what it is and it’s about 2,000 feet below me and I cut across the circle and as I get within about a half mile of it it rapidly accelerates to the south in about two seconds and disappears.”

All this seems pretty incredible so why don’t scientists care? I think it’s very very difficult as a scientist to look at something like this and say anything except what’s intriguing.  We spoke to Caleb Scharf.  He’s an astronomer and director of the multidisciplinary Columbia astrobiology Center. He says “I would need a vast amount more documentation and context to really understand what’s going on here yeah because I think that that’s exactly yeah one cannot tell much from the video.” That’s Carolyn  – she’s an assistant professor at Purdue school of Aeronautics and Astronautics – ” I would like to know more about wind what was the turbulence.  With a lot of unexplained natural phenomena on the earth that in the Earth’s atmosphere that don’t require so the further investigation but again it’s jumping to saying that what you’re seeing could be some advanced technological alien spacecraft but that’s a really big leap to make.”

What they’re talking about is the scientific method. Before scientists will accept something as fact a lot of research and testing has to be done and it has to take place in a controlled environment you can’t really set up thorough proper scientific experiment its reliance on serendipitous data that’s one of the most difficult kinds of problems solved in science so I’m not surprised that we don’t have a good answer yet but these videos were released by the US government there has to be some significance there right?

The spirits have opened us about it and if you don’t know what you’re looking at then throw it out to the world and say look this is what we got you could interpret it in a variety of different ways if we’re just going off of the scientific method hard evidence and akincana of data are the best metrics for explaining this phenomenon but what if you did see it for yourself would you still need an experiment to explain it so bottom line what do you think this was I believe as do the other folks that were on the flight that we visually saw that it was something not from this world the commander is not alone the videos continue to be scrutinized by a lot of people who think that this is an alien spacecraft as for the DoD other than releasing the videos they haven’t said much presumably they have access to more data from the flight and from reports made immediately after the encounter releasing more info could begin to answer scientists questions but ultimately even that might not be enough on the one hand I could be really cynical battles it but I think it’s wonderful that people are intrigued by phenomena that they see out in the world that that’s a good thing that’s a positive thing our curiosity is a positive thing and to be honest if there are any strange things floating around up there I’d like to know what they are the difficulty with this kind of problem is that you can’t plan for.

The Incredible Alien UFO FLEET Sighting of May 16, 1808 in Sweden

For as far as written history permits us to remember, mankind has always witnessed strange things happen in the skies, which people, by the standards of that particular time, have not been able to explain adequately. The sighting of an unidentified flying object or UFO is not a rare phenomenon, and many of these occurrences over the years have been carefully studied and subsequently debunked, while others remain as mysteries that baffle even the best of us. Among those which are left unexplained, many of these UFO sightings are believed to be flying spaceships of extraterrestrial beings.   However, not all unidentified flying objects are potential alien spacecraft. Some are even stranger. One such remarkable and unexplained phenomenon took place in a small village in Sweden over 200 years ago.

On May 16, 1808, civilians living in the small village of Biskopsberga – which is located near Skanninge in Ostergotland, Sweden – witnessed a strange event which cannot be easily explained. At present, the village no longer exists, but at the time of the unusual phenomenon, it was the home of around 300 inhabitants.   The UFO sighting took place in a hot and cloudless afternoon. The wind was blowing from the west. People were still preoccupied with working on their farms when they noticed that the sun shining over their village suddenly dimmed, turning into a dull brick-red shade. The sunlight became so dark that villagers could stare right into the sun without feeling any kind of pain in their eyes.   At the same time that darkness engulfed the small village, a large number of spherical objects appeared from the western horizon. These unidentified objects appeared small, and they measured just several inches in diameter. They appeared dark brown in color and they seemed to be headed toward the sun. Then, as these strange figures got closer to the sun, they changed their colors from dark brown to black.

For some unknown reason, the spherical objects changed their course slightly, moving in a straight procession across the sky to the eastern horizon. When these small figures approached the sun, they reduced their speed, only to increase their pace again after passing in front of it. The strange phenomenon didn’t stop there. For a significant period of time, new spheres appeared from the west and subsequently disappeared when they reached the east.   That afternoon, the number of spheres flying across the village’s sky was so many that it became impossible to count them. In the eyes of the villagers, it seemed as if millions of small balls were, for reasons unknown to them, suddenly flying in the heavens.   According to the Transactions of the Swedish Academy of Sciences from 1808, “the phenomenon lasted uninterruptedly, upwards of two hours, during which time millions of similar bodies continually rose in the west, one after the other irregularly, and continued their career in exactly the same manner.”   One of the witnesses of this unusual phenomenon in the skies over Biskopsberga was K.G. Wettermark, who was a respectable citizen and secretary of the Swedish Academy of Sciences.

Not far from where Wettermark stood, one of the spheres fell down to the ground, and he managed to observe the ball’s behavior when it did. He noticed that just before these spheres touched the ground, they looked like air-bubbles which children used to play with and produce from soapsuds using a reed. Moreover, he immediately examined a spot where one of the balls had fallen, and he saw nothing but a scarcely perceptible gelatinous film which was as thin and fine as a cobweb.

It was still changing colors, but it soon dried up entirely and vanished without a trace.   What were these weird bubbles? Why were there so many of them flying in the skies that afternoon? And why did it seem like they were capable of consciously changing the course of their movement?   The older the UFO sighting, the harder it is to investigate and explain. Most likely, the alleged UFO sighting in the skies of Biskopsberga, Sweden in 1808 was nothing more than a natural phenomenon that could not be explained by the scientific knowledge available at the time.

And even if modern science is capable of resolving this mystery, a strange case like this one can be very difficult to study as such phenomena occur so rarely.   A similar, although not entirely identical incident occurred in Basel, Switzerland on August 7, 1566. At the time, citizens of the city saw a large number of black spheres fill the skies. Not only did these objects appear to be flying towards the sun, they also looked like they were engaged in some sort of aerial battle.   The UFO sighting in Switzerland in 1566 took place at the time when the sun rose. People saw many large black balls that moved at great speed in the skies, flying toward the sun. These figures also made half-turns, with each one banging against the others as if they were engaged in fierce combat.

Many of them turned red and igneous before they were consumed and died out. The strange phenomenon lasted for several hours that day before disappearing completely.   The main difference between the sighting in Sweden in the 19th century and the odd occurrence in Switzerland in the 16th century is that the black spheres in Switzerland were unable to survive the heat from the sun. The spherical objects seen in Sweden, on the other hand, changed direction when they approached the sun.   Without a doubt, the inhabitants of Biskopsberga were confused and puzzled by what they had seen happen in their skies. The Swedes didn’t succeed in solving the mystery, and not a single person got closer to the truth even after the UFO sighting in the village that day was published in the North American Review in 1816.   At present, there are several theories that have been presented, speculating on what the strange UFO phenomenon in Sweden in 1808 really was. However, just as when the eerie occurrence took place around 200 years ago, no one really knows the answer for sure until now.

And so, it is safe to say that this particular case of UFO sighting remains unsolved. .

UFOs and Aliens Evidence in Ancient Art – Fine Art-Tips.

The Madonna with Saint Giovannino is in the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence Italy and dates back to the 15th century. Everything seems normal but if you look to the right there is a man and a dog looking up at a flying object. Let’s look at it a little bit closer. Here is the baptismal Christ at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge England.  As you can see something that looks like a flying saucer is illuminating the scene, and this one has something similar as well. It is the Annunciation by Carver Crivelli painted in 1486.  It is in the National Gallery in London, and as you can see a sliding object is sending down a beam of light to the Madonna.

This is a crucifixion at a cotillion Nikita, Georgia. At the top right and left we can see two upside-down balls each with a face looking down and lastly I’m going to show you something really outrageous! Another crucifixion and this painting is in a monastery dating from 1350.  There are two flying machines in the sky – the one on the left chasing the one on the right each with a pilot inside. Let’s look at them closer. The one on the right is even looking back at the one behind.
