Is it the rotation that's the main point of contention? I know not every UFOologist is on the aliens camp, but let's face it the majority are, but is the rotation the only thing that's standing between aliens and not aliens?
You tell us, that's the issue really.
When it first came out that was the main claim it was rotating, the pilots were excitingly exclaiming it's rotating!
The full analysis of the video took a long time because it's very complex we essentially had to learn how the ATFLIR targeting pod worked, read the patent for the ATFLIR and piece things together with sim manuals, leaked Navy manuals etc. It's still going on with recreations, and simulations.
Things went a bit quiet on all the Navy videos for a bit Mick had videos up for a while that explained stuff mostly.
Then there was Chris Lehto and Ryan Graves, ex pilots with a slant towards the not of this Earth explanation. With Graves apparently having seen the whole video and or speaking to the actual pilots.
The video is the poster child for the recent UFO renaissance. It's the one shown on the TV news stories. But it's more like a prompt for all the stories where you just go around in circles from video to story and back again.
