The 5 Most Credible UFO Sightings In Modern History
1) The Peculiar Lights Above the New Jersey Turnpike (2001)
On July 14, 2001, traffic ground to a halt on the New Jersey Turnpike when a mesmerizing sight was seen by all. Drivers across New Jersey stopped and got out of their cars to see a strange V formation of orange and yellow lights in the sky, above the Arthur Kill Waterway.
Lieutenant Daniel Tarrant of the Carteret Police Department, was one of the witnesses as well as numerous other New Jersey residents. When the media and civilians inquired about the V formation, air-traffic controllers denied the presence of any airplanes, military jets or space flights. A group called the New York Strange Phenomena Investigators 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. The USS Princeton had tracked objects that appeared at 80000 feet and plummeted over the Pacific Ocean.
Two FA-18F fighter jets from the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz arrived in the area, they identified boiling water in an oval shape underneath the surface. They then identified a white tic-tac shaped object appeared above the water. There were no physical signs of an engine or exhaust on the engine and when the fighter jets intended to intercept it, it accelerated away, moving three times the speed of sound and appearing 60 miles away.
3) O'Hare International Airport Saucer (2006)
On November 7, 2006, flight 446 was getting ready to fly from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, when a United Airlines employee on the tarmac observe a grey metallic saucer hovering in the air above gate c17. There were over 12 United Airline employees as well as numerous civilians who spotted the craft.
Witnesses claim it hovered for five minutes before shooting upward where it broke a hole in the clouds, enough that clouds separated and the employees could then see the blue sky.
In spite of numerous witnesses, the UFO was not seen on radar, the FAA called it a "weather phenomenon" and refused to investigate.
4) The Stephenville Sightings (2008)
On January 8, 2008, citizens reported seeing white lights above Highway 67, presenting as a single horizontal arc and then in vertical parallel lines. A local pilot, Steve Allen, estimated that the strobe lights "spanned about a mile long and a half-mile wide" traveling about 3000 miles per hour. In spite of this, no sound was reported.
The US Air Force claimed responsibility for the lights, stating that F-16s were flying in the area. The witnesses rejected this explanation, believing that the movements made were far too advanced for current human abilities,
5) East Coast GO FAST Video (2015)
In 2017, a video leaked on the news showing an encounter between an F/A-18 Super Hornet and an unidentified flying vehicle. The craft was similar to the one spotted in 2004, in San Diego, a rapidly moving white oval, 45 feet long and without wings. Pilots tracked it at 25000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean as it flew away whilst simultaneously rotating on its axis.
No explanation was ever provided by the US Air force.
