The 5 Most Credible Modern UFO Sightings

Let’s revisit five of the most believable UFO sightings of the 21st century.

In 2017, several news organizations revealed the existence of the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP), a U.S. government-funded investigation into unidentified flying objects from 2007 to 2012. This secret $22 million program, however, was not the first of its kind. Official government UFO studies began in the late 1940s with Project Sign, providing some of the most credible videos of aerial phenomena to date. The 2017 revelation that the U.S. government was actively researching UFOs re-ignited world interest in UFOs and aliens. Below are five of the most believable UFO sightings of the 21st century.

1. The Lights Above the New Jersey Turnpike (2001)

It takes a lot for motorists to stop alongside a highway to look toward the sky, but on July 14, 2001, drivers on the New Jersey Turnpike did just that. For around 15 minutes just after midnight, they marveled at the sight of strange orange-and-yellow lights in a V formation over the Arthur Kill Waterway between Staten Island, New York, and Carteret, New Jersey. Carteret Police Department’s Lt. Daniel Tarrant was one of the witnesses, as well as other metro-area residents from the Throgs Neck Bridge on Long Island and Fort Lee, New Jersey near the George Washington Bridge.

Air-traffic controllers initially denied that any airplanes, military jets or space flights could have caused the mysterious lights, but a group known as the New York Strange Phenomena Investigators (NY-SPI) claimed to receive FAA radar data that corroborated the UFO sightings from that night.

2. The USS Nimitz Encounter (2004)

On November 14, 2004, the aircraft carrier USS Princeton noted an unknown craft on radar 100 miles off the coast of San Diego. For two weeks, the crew had been tracking objects that appeared at 80,000 feet and then plummeted to hover right above the Pacific Ocean.

When two FA-18F fighter jets from the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz arrived in the area, they first saw what appeared to be churning boiling water in an oval shape underneath the surface. Then, in a few moments, a white Tic Tac-shaped object appeared above the water. It had no visible markings to indicate an engine, wings or windows, and infrared monitors didn’t reveal any exhaust. Commander David Fravor and Lt. Commander Jim Slaight of Strike Fighter Squadron 41 attempted to intercept the craft, but it accelerated away, re-appearing on radar 60 miles away. It moved three times the speed of sound and twice the speed of the fighter jets.

3. O’Hare International Airport Saucer (2006)

Flight 446 was getting ready to fly to North Carolina from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, when a United Airlines employee on the tarmac noticed a dark grey metallic craft hovering over gate C17. That day, November 7, 2006, a total of 12 United employees—and a few witnesses outside the airport—spotted the saucer-shaped craft around 4:15 p.m.

The witnesses say it hovered for about five minutes before shooting upward, where it broke a hole in the clouds—enough that pilots and mechanics could see the blue sky. The news report became the most-read story on The Chicago Tribune’s website to that date and made international news. However, because the UFO was not seen on radar, the FAA called it a “weather phenomenon” and declined to investigate.

4. The Stephenville Sightings (2008)

The small town of Stephenville, Texas, 100 miles southwest of Dallas, is mostly known for its dairy farms, but in the evening of January 8, 2008, dozens of its residents viewed something unique in the sky. Citizens reported seeing white lights above Highway 67, first in a single horizontal arc and then in vertical parallel lines. Local pilot Steve Allen estimated that the strobe lights “spanned about a mile long and a half mile wide,” traveling about 3,000 miles per hour. No sound was reported.

Witnesses believed the event was reminiscent of the Phoenix Lights sightings of 1997. While the U.S. Air Force revealed weeks later that F-16s were flying in the Brownwood Military Operating Areas (just southwest of Stephenville), many townspeople didn’t buy that explanation, believing that what they saw was too technologically advanced for current human abilities.

5. East Coast GO FAST Video (2015)

Leaked in 2017 along with the news of the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program, was a video that revealed an encounter between an F/A-18 Super Hornet and an unidentified flying vehicle. Seen along the East Coast on a Raytheon Advanced Targeting Forward-Looking Infrared (ATFLIR) Pod, the craft was similar to that spotted off San Diego in 2004: a fast-moving white oval about 45-feet-long without wings or exhaust plume.

The pilots tracked the object at 25,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean as it flew away and simultaneously rotated on its axis. No explanation ever emerged.

Alien Life Might Be so Advanced That It’s Indistinguishable From the Laws of Physics

We’ve never seen aliens … or have we? No, Roswell conspirators, not now. Please sit down. We’re talking in multitudes of higher complexity.

Try this on: Maybe aliens are the puppet masters behind the laws of physics. Or maybe aliens literally are physics. Just when we thought we had a grasp on the fundamental constants of the universe, boom, dark matter rips off the mask, and it’s E.T. Too crazy to be true? Prove it.

Magic, Shmagic

British science-fiction writer and futurist Arthur C. Clarke famously formulated three adages known as Clarke’s three laws. Of them, number three steals most of the spotlight: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

Consider cavemen for a moment. If you hand-delivered an iPhone to an ancient cave-dweller, he’d be dumbfounded at the “magical” device. But give it some time, and Fred Flintstone would probably start tweeting and Snapchatting. Now, let’s crank ‘er up a notch. Imagine technology so advanced, it’s not even recognizable as technology, or magic, for that matter. It could be so advanced that calling it magic would be an insult. Sorry, David Blaine.

One-Word Explanation for Anything: ALIENS

This isn’t all some far-out psychedelic rambling. (Even if it were, we’d still be here for it.) As bonkers as it may sound, Scharf argues that his thought experiment could explain the most mysterious cosmic phenomena. Take our dear ol’ elusive friend, dark matter. This unseen stuff makes up 27 percent of the observable universe, but virtually everything else about it is famously unknown. Based on the assumptions and predictions of cosmologists and astronomers, dark matter could be much more complicated than we’re ready to understand. Inconsistencies between dark matter models and observations only back that up.

With all this apparent complexity, Scharf says it wouldn’t be outlandish to think that technologically advanced life is stored there. “What better way to escape the nasty vagaries of supernova and gamma-ray bursts than to adopt a form that is immune to electromagnetic radiation? Upload your world to the huge amount of real estate on the dark side and be done with it.” The inconsistencies might just be a result of being artificially tampered with.

You can run a similar exercise with the elusive dark energy, which makes up roughly 68 percent of the universe. The universe didn’t start expanding at an accelerated rate until a cool 5 billion years ago, and scientists don’t know why. Well, well, well, how convenient.

According to Scharf, an advanced alien civilization could have bumped the speed up so they wouldn’t have to live in such a crowded, hot mess of a universe. “Any very early life in the universe would have already experienced 8 billion years of evolutionary time by the time expansion began to accelerate,” he writes. “It’s a stretch, but maybe there’s something about life itself that affects the cosmos, or maybe those well-evolved denizens decided to tinker with the expansion.”

Just Sayin’

Note that the ideas Scharf is putting out there are just that: ideas. None of this is peer-reviewed or even testable (YET). This is just one brave astrobiologist on a mission to brainstorm the boundaries of theoretical possibility and make you paranoid beyond all reason that every inescapable, so-called law of “nature” affecting you is extraterrestrial intelligence. We’re just having fun, kids!

Scharf signs off with a mind-bender: “Perhaps hyper-advanced life isn’t just external. Perhaps it’s already all around. It is embedded in what we perceive to be physics itself, from the root behavior of particles and fields to the phenomena of complexity and emergence. In other words, life might not just be in the equations. It might be the equations.”

A pilot of the Turkish Airlines company records a UFO from the cabin

It has always been said that the only people who see UFOs are anonymous people, who get carried away by the stereotype that has been perpetuated by the world of science fiction, leading to erroneous identifications of what they have witnessed. But the reality is quite another, UFOs are sighted by men and women from all walks of life, and from all social and economic classes: from chefs to bankers, cleaning staff to surgeons, writers and politicians. So, it should not surprise us that those who spend their working days in the heavens also witness the so-called anomalous aerial phenomena . In fact, the cases of encounters of pilots with UFOs are considered more credible than any other.

And if we have to mention a particular case, the first thing that comes to mind is the flight 1628 of Japan Air Lines was, a UFO incident that occurred on November 17, 1986. The crew of the Japanese cargo plane Boeing 747- 200F, which was en route from Paris to Narita International Airport, near Tokyo, saw a UFO, in addition to being detected by the radars. The meeting lasted approximately seven minutes and the crew, made up of the captain, the co-pilot and the flight engineer, assured that two spacecraft stopped in front of the plane while emitting very intense lights, to such an extent that they felt the heat in the interior cabin.

The witnesses had experience and lots of flight hours, including Captain Teraushi Kenju, a former Japanese fighter pilot with more than 29 years of flight experience. Undoubtedly, this incident is one of the best known UFO cases in the history of aviation, but it is not the only one. Now, a stunt pilot has recorded a UFO flying at high speed from his cabin during a flight.

The Turkish UFO

Turkish captain Atilla Şentürk, from the Turkish Airlines area company, saw the strange object during a commercial flight from Istanbul to Cologne on May 10 . Şentürk recorded the white object moving in circles at an “incredible speed” from his plane. Half tricks have published the video, which shows the UFO emitting flashes of light on the horizon. Due to its distance from the plane, the object can not be clearly seen.

“During the flight from Germany to Cologne, we saw an incredibly bright object at high altitude ,” Şentürk told CNN in Turkey . “It was not a satellite or a star.”

The pilot added that the object quickly disappeared moments after it was recorded. Although the media usually report on UFO sightings, the pilot declared that he himself had never seen anything like it in his entire career.

“It was the first time I saw something like this,” added Şentürk. “He was very close to us and very bright despite the sun. I had never seen anything fly so fast. “

In addition to the captain, the flight cabin supervisor and the First Officer also witnessed the object of unknown origin . Since the images were taken by a pilot of a commercial plane, the Turkish media have echoed the unusual encounter. And how could it be otherwise, social networks have also reacted. There are many who have been surprised with what you see in the video, ensuring that the UFO was following the trajectory of the plane.

They also recalled that an incident similar to 2013 could have occurred, when a Boeing 757 from the Air China company hit an unidentified flying object . On that occasion, the encounter occurred at an altitude of 26,000 feet only 20 minutes after the plane took off.

There were no injuries between the passengers and the crew, but the plane was forced to make an emergency landing at the Shuangliu airport in China. Although most surprising of all was that when landing, the operators saw the aircraft visibly damaged. For the skeptics, both the sighting of Şentürk and similar ones are simply wrong identifications, completely forgetting that the witnesses are experienced pilots with a large number of flight hours.

What is your opinion about the video? Is it a UFO chasing the plane? Or do you have another explanation?

Black and red UFO is spotted and terrifies driver in Nashville

SPOOKY footage shows a blank triangular UFO with red flashing lights hovering over a car as the terrified driver can be heard bursting into tears and saying”f**k, f**k”.

The driver then leaves her husband a series of panic-stricken voice messages, shared with Sun Online, in which she tells him “Baby I’ve just seen a spaceship.”

The motorist spotted the strange black triangle with red lights underneath it while driving home from a dance class in Nashville, Tennessee, in the USA.

She was recording herself singing on her phone when she decided to point the camera towards the road ahead.

Suddenly three red lights appeared in the distance and started moving slowly towards her car.

As they got closer, the woman sees them and she can be heard whispering “f**k, f**k” before she bursts into tears in sheer panic – and tried to call her husband.

The driver told Sun Online: “I kept looking in my back seat just to make sure I was still alone in my car. I was terrified but my husband wouldn’t answer his phone.”

She described the craft as a large black triangle covered in red lights, which was “shiny and had a very sleek design”.

She explained: “I was driving home from Nashville, I was alone and I was singing. All of a sudden it just seems to appear out of nowhere and it was hovering over my car.

“It was probably the size of three cars but it was a triangle. There was no sound.

“It was black and had a very nice sleek design.

“The red lights where all nicely placed in rows, but there were some line shape lights. The material was shiny.

“The brightness of the lights weren’t extremely bright because I don’t remember the red being reflected anywhere or like inside my car. Unless it was too far away for it to make my car reflect red light.

“I started to cry and my initial thought was confusion because I was wondering what a device like that is doing out here and so low to the ground and because I didn’t know what I was looking it.

“It was completely foreign until I had the realisation that it was absolutely a UFO.”

After the disturbing incident, she frantically tried calling her husband but she couldn’t get through to him.

In a series of panic-stricken voicemails, she pleads: “Baby please answer me, I just saw a spaceship. I’m scared, I just saw a spaceship. I saw it clearly, please answer me.

“It had three points, it was a triangle and it was in the sky.”

In another voice message, realising she had inadvertently filmed the UFO, she says: “I have a video of it, I was recording as I was singing and I got it, I got it. I’m going to send it to you ok.”

Clearly frustrated by not being able to get through, she adds: “Why don’t you ever answer when I need you the most? What the f**k dude?”

The witness said: “I stopped recording so I could call my husband and get help or let him know what was happening because it felt like I was going to be taken. I sped up and all I could focus on was getting away from it.

“When I looked back the first time it was there then I looked again and it was gone, maybe it disappeared.

“I kept imagining that an actual alien would just appear on my back seat so I kept looking in my back seat just to make sure I was still alone in my car. I was terrified and my husband wouldn’t answer his phone. Until I sent him some voice notes.”

Eventually her husband texted her back: “Holy sh*t dude.”
