” … hundreds of UFOs…” Ryan Graves

A former Navy pilot says he witnessed UFOs flying in restricted airspace off the coast of Virginia nearly every day for two years beginning in 2019.

Former Lt. Ryan Graves told CBS’s “60 Minutes” that the unidentified objects — like ones seen in a Pentagon-confirmed Navy video near San Diego — are a security threat.


The latest firsthand account comes a month ahead of a report by the national intelligence director and secretary of defense on unidentified aerial phenomena, a measure that was including in a COVID-19 relief bill passed in December.

“”I am worried, frankly. You know, if these were tactical jets from another country that were hanging out up there, it would be a massive issue,” Graves said, according to a clip of the “60 Minutes” interview, which is set to air Sunday. “But because it looks slightly different, we’re not willing to actually look at the problem in the face. We’re happy to just ignore the fact that these are out there, watching us every day.” 

Seamen who have seen the unidentified objects believe they could be a secret US technology, enemy surveillance devices, or something entirely different, Graves told CBS.

“This is a difficult one to explain. You have rotation, you have high altitudes. You have propulsion, right? I don’t know. I don’t know what it is, frankly,” the lieutenant told correspondent Bill Whitaker as he watched an unclassified video.” foxnews

Comment: Graves’ interview will be on “60 Minutes” today. Water is not easily compressible. “Hundreds of miles an hour?” Under water? Rogan says in the interview that the navy has the data. They would have that because of the sensors aboard US fleet submarines.

Well, pilgrims, so far they don’t seem hostile. pl

    According to Wiki these things have around Before Christ thus our technology has enhanced to the degree that we document more of them.
    I agree, they do not seem hostile, so let’s bury our heads and worry about things we can control versus pissing off something we cannot control.

      They have been watching us for a long time. Their big question is whether the people of Earth are dangerous. The way we behave towards others, they are right. You can’t be too careful with the savages that we are.

  2. Keith Harbaugh says:

    During the Cold War the Navy had excellent capabilities for monitoring large objects travelling underwater:

    Do these or a successor still exist?
    Can these objects, if they exist, avoid leaving acoustic traces of their passage through the ocean?
    Perhaps we’ll find out next month.

  3. Antoinetta III says:

    I don’t get the reference to “underwater” in the last paragraph. The blurb is about UFOs, ie. Flying Objects. Nothing was said about stuff “flying” underwater, so where does this come from?

    These things don’t have to be craft from beyond the Earth. They could be some kind of life form from under our oceans. Something that makes the octopus look mundane.

    • Eric Newhill says:

      Per our mutual interest in remote viewing, UFOs and related topics were targeted by some of the best in the program. According to the RVers, they are, indeed, from other planets and worlds.

      Our Cephalopod overlords. Matt Groenig got it right 😉

    August 69 was at FOB Dong Ha approximately
    5 miles from the DMZ. Because of the heat decided
    To try to sleep on roof of our comm. bunker. Watched
    All night .50 cal. and 40mm. fire. Suddenly a B-52 strike
    About 2 miles away commenced, think Apocalypse Now.
    Out of nowhere a bright spherical orb appeared. It
    Hovered a distance away about 60 degrees above the
    Horizon as if watching the show. After the run was completed
    It moved to the right and SWOOSH straight up and
    Disappeared in a flash. I don’t believe it could have been
    Any type of observation satellite.

    Venus can be seen during the day if you know where to look for it and have good weather conditions, I’ve seen it a couple of times.

    Same applies to Jupiter and Mars, but no success.

    I did see the ISS and thought it was a UFO until my error was pointed out.

    Always be careful in observations because, errors are easier to make than to find out the real answer.

    If you have Netflix, watch Deep Space Nine, Season 4 Episode 7 “Little Green Men.”

    I am a former Navy Fighter pilot (F8 Crusaders)
    I was flying at 40k ft., Night, approx. .9 mach. ,Under FAA control center. I was joined in a flash a few ft. from my stbd wing tip. Center told me no radar contact with traffic…..The object was disc shaped.. INCREDIBLY bright….I made small turns away then into the object. .it remained in perfect formation.
    Went wings level and it went under me to my port wing tip, a couple minutes after, it flew, in a flash, port and disappeared.
    True up ! 👍

    Thanks for the heads-up Colonel – I wouldn’t have tuned in otherwise. It was an interesting segment of the show, which normally promotes banal, left-wing talking points. For those who missed it, specs of truly phenomenal UAP/UFO maneuvers were discussed, and a former member of the Department of Defense had this to say:

    Chris Mellon: So it’s not us, that’s one thing we know.

    Bill Whitaker (60 Minutes host): We know that?

    Chris Mellon: I can say that with a very high degree of confidence in part because of the positions I held in the department, and I know the process.

    Col. Lang,

    Apologies for this OT comment, but I thought this development to be significant, and worthy of note. A leading officer in the new Space Command has been relieved of duty. Details and context in this link from The Conservative Tree House where ominous trends have been followed for some time.


    It has indeed become crystal clear that The March Through the Institutions of the left is now heavily focused on preparing the military to take direct action against those who question the leftist putsch. This action currently focuses on the command structure and the ranks of the military, but the intent of the left to crush any resistance among the governments of the States, and the citizenry would be advanced next by an end run on the Posse Comitatus Act and its restrictions against such actions. I share Sundance’s alarm at these developments.

    Again, apologies for this OT, but maybe considering that this latest action concerns the Space Command, it’s not so OT after all…

    (P.S.: I have seen speculation that the sudden ramping up of the UFO “threat” is a contrived psyop to panic the herd, as was done with Covid 1984. Not too far fetched?)

    Thank you,

    Maybe Gordon Cooper’s film, shot in daylight conditions by professional photographers, could be declassified instead of some grainy shit photos.


  11. Keith Harbaugh says:

    There is one group of people who spend more time up in the sky then anyone else: commercial airline pilots.
    And of course they spend much of their time observing what else is happening up there.
    I would imagine they form a fairly close-knit fraternity, comparing notes on things of interest.
    And of course they have a union, the Air Line Pilots Association or ALPA:

    If UFOs were as common up there as some would have us believe, surely the airline pilots would have noticed.
    Have they formed a committee or some kind of working group to collect their observations on these unexplained phenomena?
    I don’t know, but seems certainly worth checking on what, if anything, they have collectively done to advance knowledge of these phenomena, if they exist.

    • lysias says:

      Whoever is responsible for the UFOs may find scheduled civil air flights a bore, and pay much more attention to unpredictable military flights, especially of unusual craft.

    • akaPatience says:

      You have a point, but on the other hand since SO MANY advances in technology stem from military R&D, it seems logical to me that technologically advanced beings would choose to focus their studies much more on military capabilities rather than commercial ones.

      Some of the vehicles that’ve been sighted can maneuver radically and travel at speeds that normal human beings can’t endure. However, in light of the OSS Omaha video in which the UFO is a sphere measuring only 6′ in diameter, perhaps it and some others are operated remotely. If not, then the being(s) inside of that 6′ sphere must be small…

  12. The Twisted Genius says:

    Why don’t all our surveillance satellites and early warning systems pick any of these sightings up? We can track each little piece of an immense cloud of debris in orbit, but UFOs just slip through our net. It all seems to be left to mainly military aircraft and ships. Maybe that government report will explain. Most recent sightings also seem to be over oceans. I don’t know if that’s the case or just the impression I got.

    • Pat Lang says:

      I believe Mellon an ex-dep assistant sec of defense for intel said on one of these expos that satellite and SIGINT intel exists.

  13. Eric Newhill says:

    Reading through the comments here and noting a common theme of assumptions based on lack of information. That is typical of most subject matter labeled as “fringe”, e.g. UFOs, psi, after death communications, NDEs, remote viewing.

    The self-appointed “authorities” act as gate keepers of reality and cast a disapproving pall over topics they deem to be “dangerous” to the fabric of society. The topics become taboo and information is therefore not readily available, at best. Often, the gatekeepers spread disinformation by way of superficial dishonest “debunking” of reports and scientific studies.

    UFOs are seen by commercial airline pilots relatively frequently. UFOs are seen over land as much as sea. They are reported from all over the world. They have been for millennia. Yes, many reports are fraud or mistaken identification; many are not. That is true of any area of study.

    • Mark Logan says:

      I’ve also been credibly informed airline pilots see UFOs from time to time but almost never report it. There’s no upside for either the pilot or employer and no useful information in a report of an odd light in the sky moving around.

      It’s a fair bet that in space exploration encountering an industrialized society is an exceedingly rare event.

  14. Keith Harbaugh says:

    A National Review author suggests banal explanations (birds, balloons, parallax, classified U.S. aircraft) for several of the reported sightings:

    National Review: Calm Down, Everyone: The ‘UFOs’ Aren’t Aliens.

    Obviously, such may explain some. But all? The jury is still out.
