Shock truth about Pentagon UFO picture which convinced world aliens may exist

0 comments 📅17 January 2018, 05:44 today reveals the shocking truth about a “UFO picture” that played a key role in the staggering “Pentagon UFO” story that has convinced many people “we are not alone” and intelligent aliens may be flying advanced craft on Earth.    The still image of the so-called “white tic tac UFO” was screened during a major conference when former US government and military insiders were brought to together by former Blink 182 singer Tom DeLonge for his new alien research group To The Stars Academy.  The photograph was shown during an October 2017 presentation by academy member Chris Mellon, who served for almost 20 years in the US federal government in a series of national security positions.  Its use appeared to suggest the image showed the “Nimitz UFO” encountered by a US Navy crew off the coast of San Diego in November 2004.

The UFO, which was also captured on Navy radar video camera, was said to “defy the laws of physics” in its movements.  With a large version of the still image behind him on a screen, Mr Mellon told reporters: “Clearly this is not a US experimental aircraft, but whose is it?   “How did it accomplish these feats?   “This story may sound like a sci-fi movie, but it is a true story, and far from being the only one of its kind.”  Details of the case went on to make international headlines with the image of the alleged UFO even being screened by US TV news station Las Vegas Now.  However, can reveal the picture was not taken in San Diego in November 2004, but in Eccles, Manchester, in July 2005.  Worse still, it is not even a UFO, but believed by UFO investigators to be a helium party balloon in the shape of the number one.

The embarrassing revelation has cast doubt among some on the credibility of the To The Stars Academy, which was hailed as a turning point in the quest for the truth about UFOs by many investigators due to the backgrounds of many of its key members.  The academy has been crowdfunding to raise cash to enable its research and has so far pulled in more than $2.3 million (£1.7m) from 2,580 investors.  The picture and others of the same balloon can still be seen in a July 2005 report by Manchester UFO investigator Steve Mera on conspiracy theory website   Mr Mera said he investigated it at the time and later concluded it to be a floating party balloon.

He told “Truth of the matter is… it was taken in Eccles, Manchester and I investigated the case.  “Likelihood… it was a novelty balloon, a number ‘one’.  “Someone manipulated the photo a little by increasing its brightness.”  Debunking website has picked up on the inaccurate use of the image.

Metabunk administrator Mick West said on the website forum: “However this ‘UFO’ image is in fact of a mylar party balloon.   “This object, and the described motion, is a perfect match for a mylar party balloon in the shape of a “one”, a common digit in party celebrations.”  Metabunk discovered the image had been used in an earlier article about the Nimitz UFOwhich was published on in March 2015.  There was, however, no caption saying what the image was in that article.

The same article was referenced by Mr Mellon in his presentation, and it may be that it was taken from there in good faith in the belief that it was a genuine image from the Nimitz UFO incident.  At the academy launch in October, Mr DeLonge said its members were “principle players with the highest credentials,” however, the balloon revelation has led to claims casting doubt on the ability of the academy for thorough investigation.  In Mr West’s view, it shows very poor research on the part of the academy.  He added: “I think the use of that image was a mistake. They are just not very good at investigating.”

It is not the first time pictures or footage used by the academy to show alleged “genuine UFOs” have been called into question.  In November we revealed how Mr DeLonge used hoax CGI footage of an alleged “TR3B triangle UFO”, claiming it was a leaked genuine video. contacted Mr DeLonge at the time about the hoax video, but received no response.  We contacted the academy again through its press agency to ask for comment on how the image of the Manchester balloon came to be used as evidence for the Nimitz UFO and we await a response after 48 hours.  “The danger here is that people might come to believe that the wider story is false.  “It isn’t. Tom DeLonge and some of his people might have occasionally put up a stock image they found online – much as a newspaper sometimes illustrates a UFO story with a generic image – but the recent revelations about the Pentagon’s UFO project are all true: the project existed and was funded to the tune of $22M; some of the personnel involved with this project came to believe some of the objects were extraterrestrial; there are genuine, declassified military videos of navy jets chasing UFOs; and some of the pilots involved in these chases have gone on the record to confirm this.  “All of this has been meticulously fact-checked, so it’ll be a tragedy if people come to doubt this major news story just because of a mix-up over images.”
