While the Halloween season is a more predictable time to be branching off into the paranormal, this latest video has to be seen to be believed.
When it comes to fringe theories and mystical thinking, the idea that little green men from outer space are zipping around our planet in unbelievable devices has been around for hundreds of years. In earnest, Americans became enamored with the UFO culture in the late 1940’s after a strange incident in Roswell, New Mexico that captured the national attention.
The Roswell incident, in which a purported UFO crashed to earth and was recovered by the U.S. military, came immediately following the fears of World War II in which several technological races were occurring between the U.S., Germany, and the Soviet Union. When something happened in Roswell, many believed that our wartime enemies had gotten a leg up on the competition.
Now, as more and more Americans find themselves enamored with the possibility of extraterrestrial visitation to earth thanks to television and media, the Navy is releasing footage and eyewitness accounts of a bizarre 2004 incident that many believe could be the real deal.
“Commander Fravor began a circular descent to get a closer look, but as he got nearer the object began ascending toward him. It was almost as if it were coming to meet him halfway, he said.
“Commander Fravor abandoned his slow circular descent and headed straight for the object.
“But then the object peeled away. ‘It accelerated like nothing I’ve ever seen,’ he said in the interview. He was, he said, ‘pretty weirded out.’
“They were en route and closing in when the Princeton radioed again. Radar had again picked up the strange aircraft.
“’Sir, you won’t believe it,’ the radio operator said, ‘but that thing is at your cap point.’
“’We were at least 40 miles away, and in less than a minute this thing was already at our cap point,’ Commander Fravor, who has since retired from the Navy, said in the interview.”
The video is even more bizarre.
The recent increase in bizarre UFO stories making the rounds in American media has spurred conspiracy theories of its own, with many believing that these releases are coordinated to lessen the psychological impact of a scheduled disclosure of information by the U.S. government.
But to believe that, you must first believe that aliens from another planet are coming here to taunt our Navy pilots.
