Article:Investigators with the Pentagon’s UAP Task Force have requested that airmen try to document their encounters.
On March 4th, 2019, one of them did.
An F-18 weapons systems officer (WSO) seated behind the pilot used his iPhone to capture images of three different objects he encountered in the same airspace.
At 3:02 p.m. he photographed an odd shaped object. Another photo, taken close to the same time, was first posted to twitter on May 11, 2020, then again on social media 6 months later.
Other photos taken on the same day; March 4th, 2019 have never been made public until now. Mystery Wire has taken the step of watermarking these photographs in this article. We will, at a later date, release the photographs without watermarks.
On of these photos, the "Acorn" is discussed here: https://www.metabunk.org/threads/balloon-like-ufo-photo-from-the-debrief.11481/
Of the other two, the "Sphere" (also labeled a "Jellyfish") looks to me like an out-of-focus highlight (bokeh). The close mirror being in focus is a strong clue.
The metallic blimp is difficult to interpret due to low resolution. Possibly some kind of balloon.
Article:The Task Force reports noted that the objects were able to remain stationary in high winds, with no movement, beyond the capability of known balloons or drones.
For me this one line makes the whole story seem ridiculous. Stationary relative to what? And how was this measured. High altitude air movement is not very turbulent, so balloons would apprea still.
