US Navy images show UFOs over the Arctic

A secretive set of photographs has emerged showing two unidentified objects near a US Navy submarine.
The pictures, which had been withheld from public release for years, are believed to have been taken in 1971 by sailors aboard the USS Trepang submarine during a mission near Iceland.

The grainy photographs include one of a black triangular object flying low over the water and a series of shots showing a large cigar-shaped object which appears to crash in to the sea.

The images were allegedly sent to the French Paranormal magazine "Top Secet" by an anonymous source however very little else is known about their origins or authenticity.

"They have certainly got UFO researchers scratching their heads and wondering and speculating that UFOs have a base in the Arctic regions," said UFO researcher and author Nigel Watson.

"They are an odd selection of pictures, that feature types of UFOs that have been regularly spotted by witnesses in all parts of the world. Airship or cigar-shaped type craft have been reported since 1896 when there was a great wave of 'phantom airship' sightings thoughout the USA. "

A larger selection of the photographs can be viewed - here.

The Moon is allright, but I think the sun is hot ! Yeah but the moon goes home every morning without having to be told and even gives you a week off each month to hang with the boys. Sounds like perfection, no?

That's fine, I feel anyone who takes the bleeding obvious and insists it is a deep mystery is not worth conversing with either. Lol. I've stated multiple times that I agree with the blimp theory. All I did was ask a question. It's done, get over yourself.

Ah some pictures to look at that bring out the best in people. Experimental planes are cool until they crash.

According to a US Naval archive, the USS Trepang was in the area at the time and a Rear Admiral Dean Reynolds Sackett, Jr from Beatrice, Nebraska, was its commanding officer from August 1970 to December 1973. This struck me as odd. The Navy doesn't make Flag officers captains of single ships, let alone leave them there for three years. Checking shows that Sackett did command Trepang in those years, but not as a Rear Admiral. He retired with that grade in 1991. Just clearing up a minor point of confusion.

Probably just some more mixing up of things that were individually true (i.e. the photos were of target blimps, probably dating back to WWII, and various other things), but that didn't necessarily happen at the same time.

These objects absolutely look strange to me, but the problem exists, for me, in trying to label them as ships.
