An unclassified image that was leaked from U.S. intelligence agencies shows what appears to be unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), the Pentagon’s term for unidentified flying objects.
The object in the photo has been described by U.S. officials as silver and “cube-shaped,” according to a report from The Debrief, which first shared the image.
The photo was first leaked back in 2018, but is just now gaining tracking online — as people attempt to figure out what on earth this ‘UFO’ could be.
The Debrief’s Tim McMillan, a contributor to Popular Mechanics, learned of the photo’s existence from a “defense official who has been verified as being in a position to have access to the UAPTF’s intelligence reports,” he writes. Three other government officials confirmed with McMillan that the photo, which was shared on a secure network used by the U.S. Intelligence Community, comes from a 2018 task force report.
A military pilot reportedly encountered the object while flying over the Atlantic Ocean on the East Coast of the U.S. in 2018 and captured it with their personal cell phone.
It’s likely that a backseat weapons system operator on an F/A-18F Super Hornet took the photo of the object, which McMillan calls “inverted” and “bell-shaped,” and describes it having “ridges or other protrusions along its lateral edges, extending toward its base.”
It is possible that the object could be a GPS dropsonde, a sensor on a parachute that provides info on the vertical profile of a storm. However, intelligence officials don’t believe that to be the case, nor do they believe the object to be any type of weather balloon.
The object has been described that, unlike a balloon under similar conditions, the object was completely motionless and seemingly unaffected by ambient air currents.
There is no doubt that the object is incredible strange and something that the pilots who took the photo, had never encountered before while in the air.
Are we alone in the Universe?
