Disclosure Strikes Again!

As regular readers of this Blog surely know, as well as anyone else who has been following the UFO scene for more then a short time, episodes of Disclosure Mania are regular occurrences. Many in UFOOLogy get very excited, and proclaim their expectation that sometime very soon, the government will "disclose" what they know about UFOs and aliens. Of course, that never happens. We recently experienced one such episode in July, and  now are in the midst of yet another. Unsurprisingly, it was "UFO Jesus" on November 24 leading the way:

 It was also hinted at on November 13 by UFO filmmaker James Fox,

Well, "UFO Jesus"  hit it right on the head. Something happened on December 2, but it wasn't "disclosure." There was an article by Tim McMillan published on-line in The Debrief, called "Fast Movers and Transmedium Vehicles -  The Pentagon's Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force." Like most articles supposedly "disclosing" something, it was a huge disappointment. What did we learn from the article?

  • Classified breifings were held recently for Senators by the Pentagon's "UAP" Task Force. But we already knew that.
  • Unnamed supposedly high officials "told The Debrief that there was much more going on behind closed doors." Inspecific claims from unnamed persons.
  • "Multiple sources confirmed for The Debrief that the UAPTF had issued two classified intelligence position reports, which one individual described as “shocking.” ". Unnamed sources making unnamed "shocking" claims.
  • Then we are treated to an embedded YouTube video of a supposed UFO video taken at the Nellis AFB Range by government contractors in 1994, which had already appeared on national TV shows in 1995. The relevance of this video to whatever is supposedly happening in Washington now is: none whatsoever. In fact, if you watch this video from about 7:00 on, it is clearly seen to be a fly, bee, or other insect hovering in front of the camera. You can even see its wings flapping. It looks very much like another famous Fly UFO video, of which Leslie Kean has been a big promoter
Irrelevant embedded "UAP video" in the article, from Nellis in 1994. Appears to be another Fly UFO.
  • "One of the intelligence reports, released in 2018, is said to have provided a general overview of the UAP topic and included details of previous military encounters. According to sources who had read it, the report also contained an unreleased photograph of an “aerial phenomena” categorized as “unidentified.” The Debrief was told the accompanying photo was captured from within the cockpit of an F/A-18 fighter jet with a pilot’s personal cell phone. According to three U.S. officials who had seen it, the photo showed an unidentified silver “cube-shaped” object. The report is said to have indicated the object was “hovering” or completely motionless when military pilots encountered it." So, unnamed sources say that there is an unreleased photo of a UFO from a fighter jet. Wow!!
  • But it gets better: "Overwhelmingly, everyone The Debrief spoke with said the most striking feature of the recently released UAPTF intelligence position report was the inclusion of new and “extremely clear” photograph of an unidentifiable triangular aircraft. The photograph, which is said to have also been taken from inside the cockpit of a military fighter jet, depicted an apparent aerospace vehicle described as a large equilateral triangle with rounded or “blunted” edges and large, perfectly spherical white “lights” in each corner. Officials who had seen it said the image was captured in 2019 by an F/A-18 fighter pilot. Two officials that received the report said the photo was taken after the triangular craft emerged from the ocean and began to ascend straight upwards at a 90-degree angle. It was indicated that this event occurred off the eastern coast of the United States. Several other sources confirmed the photo’s existence; however, they declined to provide any further specifics of the incident." So, more unnamed officials commenting on an unseen photograph. Double wow!

McMillan's article gives us an artist's recreation of what the reported "triangular aircraft" looks like:

 Fans of Disclosure and  "To The Stars," like Chris Mellon, praised McMillan's article as "A must-read article for anyone interested in US national security. Excellent work." On the other hand, blogger Jason Colavito wrote "New Article Claims Military Has "Clear" Photo of Flying Triangle Rising from Ocean," calling McMillan's article "a bit shaggy and at times somewhat unclear."

But lo, the very next day McMillan publishes a second article in that same publication, titled "Leaked Photo Surfaces of Purported Unidentified Aerial Phenomena." In it, we see the photo itself, here greatly enlarged:

 The leaked photo of an "unidentifiable triangular aircraft," included in the "UAPTF intelligence position report". 

Frankly, it looks like a balloon to me. The longtime British UFO researcher Isaac Koi noted the amazing similarity of this leaked "triangular UFO" (center) to a Batman Balloon made of Mylar:

Of course, the balloon might have had Superman on it, or Spider Man. We can't resolve it clearly enough to tell.

So this is all it takes to baffle the Pentagon's "UAP experts:" a mylar balloon, and a fly. Thus endeth the latest episode of Disclosure Follies. No doubt many more episodes will follow.

Once again, believers in "Disclosure" end up disappointed.


  1. We need to know who was on that balloon. If it is Superman then this is disclosure. Superman is Kryptonian, an alien. If this is a Superman balloon photo, then the government is in possession of a photo of an alien in the sky :D.

  2. That photo is of the 'cube-shaped object', supposedly taken in 2018. The photo of the triangular craft object was taken in 2019, and doesn't seem to have been released. The only version I've seen is the artist's impression, as you've posted above.

    1. ? It's not shaped like a cube. The report said a triangle shaped object over the ocean, this photo is of a triangular shaped object over the ocean, but it's not? It's a cube?

    2. There were two UFOs. Read the bulleted point above, starting with the phrase: "One of the intelligence reports, released in 2018", describing the motionless 'cube-shaped object'. Seen from a distance, as in the original photo, ( it's so small that it could be taken as cube shaped.

      The second object, the 'triangular object', dates from 2019, and was said to have lights at each corner, and rose at a 90 degree angle from the water. The photo of that one still hasn't been released. You're confusing the stationary object with the moving one.

    3. There is a lot of confusion and controversy about that photo right now.So the "cube UAP" looks triangular??

      Tim McMillan says he was told that the photo was taken in 2018. However, the photo's metadata says it is from 2019.

    4. No, the 'cube-shaped' UFO is the 'mylar balloon' in the photo. The photo of the 'triangular' UFO hasn't been released. All we've been given is the artist's impression.

      Metabunk makes it clear in this post that there are TWO objects, the cube and the triangle:

  3. >> Isaac Koi noted the amazing similarity of this leaked "triangular UFO" (center) to a Batman Balloon made of Mylar << LOL Good ol' Isaac Koi

    I was going to suggest black plastic garbage bag caught in an updraft but I think Issac has nailed it! Good Eye!
