The UFO Phenomenon

Astronomer weighs in on US Navy UFOs debate

With the government's UFO report expected any day now, just how likely is it to be a game changer ?
Earlier this month we heard rumors from high-ranking officials that the US government's upcoming UFO report had seemingly confirmed the presence of unidentified aerial phenomena.

As we wait for the public release of the report however, several experts - including astronomers - have been weighing in with their views on what it is we can expect to see.

One of these is Nick Suntzeff from Texas A&M University - a decades-long veteran in space research who recently talked about the subject at length for a recent article.

"I have no idea what the report will say, but I doubt they have any evidence where a UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, previously called a UFO) is clearly resolved," he said.

"For starters, have you ever noticed that UAP images and videos are usually out of focus?"

Suntzeff argues that the US Navy pilot videos we've seen in recent years could have alternative, conventional explanations and are not necessarily conclusive evidence of UFOs.
"In one video, a pilot said the UFO resembled a large Tic Tac mint and that it was defying the laws of physics over the ocean and moving fast," he said.

"The problem here is that we don't know how far away it was. If it was high above the ocean, then the apparent motion is likely due to the airplane and not the object."

"I can't rule out we have visitors from other planets. But we need clear evidence. We need a clear photo, for instance. So far, we do not have such evidence."

On the topic of whether or not the US government has access to UFO crash debris, he added:

"If they do, this is the best kept secret ever. Our government is not great at keeping secrets, and this one would be a doozy. No, I don't believe there is any physical evidence."

"I don't think intelligent civilizations could travel the thousands of light years to the earth, and then crash their spacecraft. If they can travel that distance, I seriously doubt they would be this careless."

Thanks for being clear, about why you wanted to converse in the first place.  All I can say is your the best, and the brightest I cant compare to your level of intelligence! Sorry if disagreeing with you is so tedious and pointless!

I will ask you one last time do you think the US Navy Hoaxed those Videos?  You don't want to answer that question why? Yes I watched the video, but again the video is implying a hoax!

It's not that I don't want to answer the question--it's just that the question is irrelevant. Which video? How is it implying a hoax? If you watched the video then what parts of the arguments put forth do you (dis)agree with? Why do you (dis)agree with them?

Here’s a really good, balanced view of the latest UFO revelations.  This guy is really worth a watch.

I totally understand why you would want to be done with a conversation wherein you are being held accountable for claims you are making.

That has nothing to with it, first who are you to hold anyone accountable fir anything. Second you refuse to answer a simple yes or no question because it defeats and knocks down your house of cards. So, Respectfully if want to hold something hold yourself accountable for not answering a simple question like do you think the US Navy is hoaxing this entire situation? Besides that the report that released today let's the air out of your tires, you no longer have kegs to stand upon!

It has everything to do with it. You don't have a good reason for dismissing the claims being made in the videos. A participant in the debate. What is my house of cards? Please elaborate. I also intentionally refuse to answer your question because it is an absolutely nonsensical question. Why should I entertain your question, also, when you haven't done what I first asked of you--i.e. outline what specific conclusions made in the videos you (dis)agree with, why, etc. I reckon you haven't done that because you can't. I am intentionally avoiding answering this question because my answer is alrea... [More]

Until you answer that question I am placing you on ignore!

Then how will you know if I answered the question, genius?
