As above, so bellow
I think keepers of Big Secret are drip feeding it to to populace, save for the fact that all this tech is really in private possession.

Two very real reasons are not new. Military deception and for those facing a government retirement package, another source of income.

For what purpose? I refuse to believe altruism is the real motivation behind this
On a second thought, I would say you are right. I shot myself in a foot.
It can not be both that MIBs are "drip feeding info" and that info is in private possession.
Its more that people are clawing back what is rightfully theirs over the time, bit by bit, till either major UFO incident happens but escapes MIBs or attitudes evolve.

Well, lets put it this way, Caulthart is serious guy and he's good at digging up dirt. His success attracted big audience and now MIBs are now feeding him red herrings. Same thing happened with that award winning US woman journalist ( forgot her name ) who did phenomenal and rational research on cow mutilations. Then MIBs started feeding here up with all kinds of hallucinations and she swallowed all of it in spades

Linda Moulton Howe. She did a great job with the original cattle mutilation phenomena of the 1970's and 80's but then plunged into the deep end. Or it could be that she was always out there, but the cattle mutilation era had enough truth to it.

Mysterious black helicopters retrieved downed UFO near Alaska

UFO expert Ross Coulthart claims to have new information that disproves President Biden’s statement about the mysterious ‘UAP’ downed by USAF fighters last February, reports dailystar.co.uk.

Coulthart said his Pentagon source confirmed that the downed object was in fact a silver cylindrical UFO and not a civilian balloon as President Biden had claimed.

The whistleblower said the President personally ordered the shoot down and the operation involved multiple forces, including HC-130s, F-16s, and black OGA (other government agency) helicopters.

The incident occurred about 13 kilometers off the frozen Alaskan coast, and pilots sent to inspect the site gave conflicting accounts of what they saw. Online videos taken by UFO hunters showed black helicopters hovering over the coast.

US officials said the object posed a “reasonable threat to air traffic” and was shot down on the president’s orders. A Pentagon spokesman said rescue teams collected debris from the object on the surface of the ice.

However, the search was called off, and officials refused to give a detailed description of the object, saying only that “it was not an aircraft as such.”

These statements caused outrage among Americans. Many are wondering why President Biden hid the truth about the operation and why the information about the downed UFO was kept secret.

UFO experts are studying this case with great interest. They hope that the new details of the operation will help them understand the nature and origin of these mysterious objects that continue to appear in the sky.

Multiple US military whistleblowers reveal how a disc-shaped UFO intercepted nuclear missile and disabled it with 'laser-beams' in mid-air over California

The US military is in possession of a video of a UFO apparently disabling a nuclear warhead during a routine test, according to multiple former officials.

They claim the video in question captured a saucer-shaped craft circling the unarmed, dummy warhead shortly after it detached from the Atlas missile booster, then shooting four beams of light at the warhead, disabling it.

Retired US Air Force officers Lieutenant Bob Jacobs and Major Florenze Mansmann claim to have viewed the recording of the 1964 encounter before the tape went missing.

The former officials were part of a team responsible for capturing video of missile test launches in California with telescopic photography and videography equipment.

Two days later, after they screened the video, they claim that two plain-clothed CIA agents confiscated the footage and swore them to secrecy.

The incredible account is part of a pattern that some UFO experts have identified, where UFOs seem to interfere with nuclear weapons.

The alleged incident occurred nearly six decades ago, on September 15, 1964, but it has more recently come into public knowledge due to author Robert Hastings investigating it.

Luis Elizondo acknowledged the existence of the video and claimed he has seen it, according to a February 10 post by Hastings on The UFO Chronicles website.

Elizondo says he was the former director of the Pentagon's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) program to study UFOs, and he has been involved in several high-profile leaks of military footage purporting to show UFOs.

An unnamed source revealed to Hastings that Elizondo confirmed the details of the event in internal interviews.

Strategic Anomaly Detection Effort Uses SETI Ellipsoid Technique to Scour the Cosmos for Technosignatures - The Debrief

A strategic approach for selecting promising targets for signs of advanced civilizations could move SETI researchers one step closer to discovering intelligence elsewhere in the cosmos.
The method relies on observations from the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) mission to observe what is known as the SETI Ellipsoid, and is outlined in a new study by researchers with the SETI Institute, along with colleagues at Berkeley SETI Research Center and the University of Washington.
A geometric strategy that selects potential technosignature observations, the SETI Ellipsoid describes an egg-shaped area of the cosmos where intelligent civilizations would likely have had enough time to witness an astronomical event.
Specifically, it works off the assumption that any potential extraterrestrial civilizations that may have witnessed such galactic-scale events may use them as a cosmic Schelling point—a solution chosen by parties under conditions where they can’t otherwise communicate—which may be manipulated to broadcast synchronized signals through space to indicate their presence.
An example of such a galactic-scale event might be supernova 1987A, light from which was first observed by astronomers as it reached Earth on February 23, 1987. According to the authors of the new study, ongoing and continuous wide-field sky surveys present astronomers with an excellent opportunity to scour the cosmos for signals like these.

Bárbara Cabrales, one of the study’s co-authors, said that new wide-scale surveys of the sky offer astronomers “groundbreaking opportunities to search for technosignatures coordinated with supernovae.”
“The typical timing uncertainties involved are of a couple months,” Cabrales said in a statement, “so we want to cover our bases by finding targets that are well-documented over the course of about a year.
“In addition to that, it’s important to have as many observations as possible for each target of interest, so that we can determine what looks like normal behavior and what might look like a potential technosignature.”
In their research, the Cabrales and the team examined sources in the TESS continuous viewing zone, accounting for around 5% of the available TESS data, based on observations made during the first three years of the mission.
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) was built and designed specifically to search for exoplanets, and since its launch in 2018 has covered an area 400 times the size of the earlier Kepler mission. According to the new study’s authors, by using improved three-dimensional locations for stars obtained from Gaia Early Data Release 3, a total of 32 SN 1987A SETI Ellipsoid targets were identified in the TESS continuous viewing zone.
“We examined the TESS light curves of these stars during the Ellipsoid crossing event and found no anomalous signatures,” the study’s authors write.
Although no anomalies were detected during the team’s observations, the methodology they applied is nonetheless promising and offers potentially promising approaches that have applications within the scope of other sky surveys and across an array of different targets and signal types.

The technique, they say, might also be applied to large amounts of data that exist in archival databases, which could mean that the kinds of promising technosignatures that astronomers hope to find could already be present in the existing data they have collected, not unlike fossil recoveries that are collected and preserved in a museum for years before they are eventually identified as a novel species.
Of key importance is that the study showcases how leveraging Gaia’s high precision distance estimates helps demonstrate how astronomers can compare these distances alongside data from time-domain surveys like TESS, thereby allowing them to improve their overall chances of monitoring and detecting anomalies.
By combining distance measurements from the Gaia catalog with the SETI Ellipsoid method for anomaly detection, researchers can search through large amounts of archival data either to look for potential signals or to select targets for future searches.
“This work is the first step in searching those newly-highlighted parts of parameter space, and is an exciting precedent for upcoming large survey projects,” said co-author Dr. Sofia Sheikh, who cited as an example the Vera C. Rubin Observatory, previously known as the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, which is currently under construction in Chile, which will engage in a massive synoptic astronomical survey called the Legacy Survey of Space and Time once it is complete.
The team’s new paper, “Searching the SN 1987A SETI Ellipsoid with TESS,” was published in The Astronomical Journal on February 12, 2024.

Show us the satellite pics...
I've been thinking a lot about the skeptics recently. Initially I was angry because they have limited their scope to testable evidence and refuse to consider other types of evidence, including eyewitness testimony. I have come to believe they are valuable and should be embraced in the same compassionate way that Mick West strives for, and sets out in his new book. There is so much garbage footage and nonsense proffered as evidence for aliens these days --and the gullible think it is real, and with their expertise, the folks at Metabunk can cut through it, and that is a very valuable service. Folks who have really seen anomalous UFOs have nothing to be worried about. It could be a very long time befire hard science / skeptics get the extraordinary evidence they need, and that's okay! That is science. We should all be angry at the hoaxers.
