The story of The Nimitz Encounters has long fascinated me, for those unfamiliar with it, it's UFO (as in unidentified flying object, not aliens per se) encounter with the Nimitz battle group in 2004. There is a good documentary of this on YouTube. They found and saw something, just what it was is still a mystery in 2019.


Now in May 2019 there is some more info coming out, of this encounter and other encounters like it in 2014-15. The New York Times wrote about it, as well as other news sources.

I'm still wondering about what they all saw, it could be new tech out of Edwards, Vandenberg or Groom Lake, it could be fucking aliens, but it was something, it's on video, and there is quite good data available on the flight characteristics, and I assume that the classified data is even better.

Saw the documentary. My best guess is it was faked. This from wiki:

Stephen Pope, editor of Flying magazine criticized the stories of the incident in The New York Times as "borderline-sensationalist" and says they provoked "a flurry of breathless reporting by media outlets around the world, most of which seem to have failed to notice that the Times’ original reporting has some major problems with it." Pope noted that the purported UFO videos were not released by the Pentagon, but by a former official who is now connected to "To the Stars Academy of the Arts and Sciences", a Las Vegas company that is seeking funding for UFO research.[28]

The video footage in the NY Times article is clearly sourced as Department of Defense, and not some former disgruntled employee ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yeah, I can see that. Now I'm confused.

It is a very intriguing story, but seems like it has a lot of missing parts. Hard to even guess about what really happened. My guess is that someone is lying - which this whole video thing seems to suggest.

I'm thinking it's a drone that is designed to confuse radar, so it's flight characteristics are actually not true, and that they've unwittingly been a part of a weapons test basically.

The fact that they keep meeting these things close to Vandenberg AFB and not that far away from Edwards and Groom Lake, suggests it's something from there.
