New analysis of Navy UFO video highlights problems

A detailed analysis of the best known US Navy UFO video has provided an intriguing new perspective.
First leaked in 2017 before being formally published in 2019, the clip - sometimes referred to as the "gimbal" UFO video - shows an unidentified object being pursued at high speed by a US Navy pilot somewhere off the coast of the United States.

The object, which can be seen in the center of the frame, appears to perform various manoeuvers that should be impossible with today's conventional aviation technology.

Whether it shows an object of extraterrestrial origin or some sort of advanced prototype vehicle of human design, the video has become the poster child of the modern UFO phenomenon.
But is everything in this footage quite as it seems ?

In a new analysis, Mick West delves deeper into the footage and finds a few irregularities which don't debunk the video overall, but which do call into question the idea that the UAP in the center of the frame actually looked or behaved like this in real life.

You can check out his analysis in the video below.

The problem for people like Lehto is that they do not engage the math. They fail. That's all. They fail.

I dont know if hes lying or not i know like the comparison im gonna make he loves the attention he gets and doesnt mind his lack of evidence to support his claims. In a way fravor is to UFOs what meldrum is to bigfoot and the PGF.

Got an example? I can't find anything that matches this with the same perfect synchronicity. Regardless, it still looks like an image glitch to me. Whether or not the camera is creating it or following it makes little difference, I do not believe it's showing an accurate physical object.

Im with you, some of that is above my pay rate but i dont think this video shows what true believers wish it does.

Although this vid is the only thing members of the public have to work with, I seriously doubt that military intel hasn't got more.  Spy 1 radar used in the Aegis Combat System, for example, can give a profile of a tracked object and attempt to match it to known crafts. who knows what it is but the military surely has a better idea than we do

The shape is that of a lens flare, flat, oval, with center spike. How ever that may fit in to this little mess.. Does the object turn, rotate or spin as the jet banks or turns?. it does seem to follow, as if it was a lens flare or optical boo boo, the pace of the jet.. ive seen it too many times. it is said it is only visible in infrared?..and not with the naked eye? this would lean more towards a glitch of some kind..I hope not. I hope its a true ufo. the pilots you would think would be able to tell a reflection from and actual threat. It is being tracked by the fighters sensors etc..Hell I d... [More]

Lens flares can be optical in nature and also software in nature. Is it the sensors that detect the flare or is the flare due to postprocessing?

if it had a cloaking device on it would upset all kinds of things

Still waiting for that example video that shows this radar system following a known object the same way it folllows this thing.
