Unidentified Submerged Objects: Recent Sightings Part 2

Be Skeptical, Be Open Minded!

Unidentified Submerged Objects
Unidentified Submerged Objects

Now that it has become somewhat acceptable to acknowledge and look for UFO's we are also seeing more reports of Unidentified Submerged Objects in the waters around the world.

USO's like UFO's represent an active threat to air traffic safety and safety in the oceans and other bodies of water. They are not benign!

The militaries of all nations continue to encounter them at all depths and the are frequently observed coming and going from our oceans.

Richard Dolan has in the past few days come out with an excellent video about USO's, which you will find below.

After that is a excellent video from Ancient Astronaut Archives that provides a long historical list of reports with descriptions and related data. Very well done.

These reports represent a long standing aspect of our world that most people have ignored for far to long.

Hopefully we will someday soon have a better understanding of what so many have seen and continue to see.

The article below gives us another long list of USO sightings often by multiple witnesses.

Incredible Encounters with USOs- Unidentified Submerged Objects

"There have been plenty of UFO cases and reports from the skies above our heads, but this seems to be far from the end of such unearthly phenomena. One area of supposed alien phenomena that doesn't seem to get as much attention is that of strange things beneath the waters of our world. Known as USOs, meaning "Unidentified Submerged Objects," or also "Unidentified Submersible Objects," these are those fleetingly glimpsed "underwater UFOs" which are seen roaming about and entering and exiting oceans or lakes to create just as much awe and wonder as their airborne brethren. Here we will look at a selection or truly strange cases of unidentified submarine craft zipping about and inspiring wonder and debate.

Some earlier reports of USOs were mentioned in the book Unexplained!, by Jerome Clark, the earliest coming from all the way back in 1924, before the idea of UFOs was even really a thing. On July 1 of that year, pilot D.P. Lott and a photographer by the name of R.A. Smith were flying a small aircraft over the Hudson River, New York, when they saw below them two enormous mysterious objects in the water, each one estimated as being around 250 feet in length and travelling parallel to each other through the waves. The objects were described as being cylindrical in shape and with pointed ends, both leaving an “arrow-shaped wake” in their paths as they lumbered through. After some period of observation, the two massive objects submerged out of sight. It would later turn out that the Navy had no submarines scheduled to be in the area, and even if they did, these things were much larger than any known submarine of the era except for the very newest models. Smith was actually able to take a photograph of the objects, although since their altitude was around 5,000 feet it is difficult to know just what it shows. The sighting remains unexplained.." from the article:

USOs: The Forgotten UFOs | The Richard Dolan Show

"Although water covers 70 percent of the Earth's surface, we seldom hear much about water-based UFOs, or USOs. However, there is a rich history of such sightings. UFO historian Richard Dolan discusses many unknown or barely known cases from around the world. Richard M. Dolan, one of the world's leading researchers and writers on UFOs, as well as other thinkers dedicated to pushing back our boundaries and exploring new vistas of our world." from video introduction

Underwater Alien Bases and Unidentified Submerged Objects

"There have been countless UFO cases and reports over the centuries, but one area of potential extraterrestrial phenomena that doesn't seem to get as much attention is that of strange things beneath the waters of our world. USOs, which is an acronym for "Unidentified Submerged Objects," are basically UFOs that can enter and exit bodies of waters such as oceans and lakes. While these phenomena aren’t as well known to the public as UFOs, USOs have a well-documented history that goes back much further that you may realize. This list of USO reports and potential bases is but a sample of the hundreds if not thousands of encounters that have been reported. For the sake of brevity, the Archive compiled a list that represents some of the better-known encounters.

Those Amazing USOs

USOs! Unidentified submersible objects! For many years, there wasn’t much research into the subject of USOs. UFO research focused mostly on flying objects. But today UFO investigators have come to realize that our oceans are swarming with extraterrestrial craft. Mile for mile, one of the top producers of USO reports is the stretch of water off the southern California coast, known as the Santa Catalina/San Pedro channel. There are now more than 150 documented cases on record. This video presents more than a dozen dramatic cases of UFO/USO activity in the Santa Catalina channel. These are cases involving multiple witnesses, radar confirmation, photographs, films, physiological effects and more. Jan 28, 1953, Rex Hardy Jr, a former Lt. Commander in the U.S. Navy and others observed four silver discs over Malibu, CA. They estimated that the objects were each the size of a B-36 aircraft, and moved at about 1200 MPH. This was the first of several sightings in that area that would cause great concern for Air Force officers. Dec 16, 1953, Clarence ‘Kelly’ Johnson, designer of the U2 aircraft was with his wife near Pt. Mugu when saw a strange object moving against the prevailing winds. At the same time, the crew of a Lockheed WV2 aircraft sighted the same object from Long Beach. Project Bluebook officers investigated the case and told the witnesses they had seen nothing but a “lenticular cloud!” Mar 22, 1957, two UFOs were detected on radar at LAX Airport. When the objects approached to within ten miles, the Air Force scrambled F-89 jets, at which point, the radar station lost power. Minutes later, the objects appeared during a missile test at Pt. Mugu and were filmed. Unfortunately, the film was classified and has never been released. The next day, the objects returned and were seen by hundreds of people and again caught on radar. 2004, an anonymous civilian witness driving along the Pacific Coast Highway near Torrance saw three glowing objects only 400 feet over his car. A few months later, he and his entire family saw a disc-shaped craft while boating near Catalina Island. Aug 8, 2005, a group of eight shark fishermen were off the coast of Newport Beach when the saw a bright object approaching. It hovered a few miles away only 100 feet above the water. Then it started to come closer, causing some of the fishermen to become concerned. One of the men, however, received a strong impression of positivity from the object. Dec 2, 2006, a wedding party at Newport Beach were along the beach when an eerie silence descended over them. Looking up, they saw the shadow of an object they estimated to be about 500 feet in diameter. Jun 1963, the best man at a wedding in Laguna Beach was taking a nighttime walk along the beach when he saw a glowing object with portholes just beneath the waves. He first thought it might be a submarine, but realized that it was far too close to the shore. 1972, Robert Snyder was visiting his friends in Pacific Palisades when they all saw a disc-shaped object covered with colored lights approach from the north. As they watched, the object descended into the water and then began to move underwater faster at extremely high speeds. Jun 1980, two people were camping at Point Mugu when they saw what they first thought were buoys with lights on them floating just offshore. Then suddenly, the objects rose into air, hovered for a half-minute, and darted away in the blink of an eye. Mid-1980s, art director, Xander Smith revealed his sighting of brilliant lights offshore of Malibu. He first thought it might be a big-money production of a movie until the next day when he learned that more than a hundred people in the area had seen the “mysterious lights” and nobody could explain them. 1989-1994, Many witnesses along the coast from Marina Del Rey to Rancho Palos Verdes observed many objects floating under the water. In one instance, a very large USO was seen releasing smaller ones. In another incident, witnesses were warned off by mysterious government agents. 1996, Jason Brooks was with his girlfriend at Salt Beach in Dana Point when they observed what they thought was a boat. Then suddenly the “boat” took off straight up and began performing incredible darting maneuvers for 30 minutes. The next day, the USOs were back! Throughout the 1960s, a resident of Rolling Hills observed numerous UFOs/USOs. Then one evening, an object hovered over her car, causing EM effects, then moved directly over her house. That evening, her father (who worked for the Navy designing ULF antenna) experienced what she believes was direct contact.

USO's/UFO's Target Boaters?

Video from Preston Dennett

UFOs are not only seen in the skies above us. They are also seen in our oceans. Researchers call them, "USOs" or unidentified submersible objects. And there are a lot of them! USOs are seen all over the world, but one of the most active areas on our planet is off the coast of Southern California, specifically, the Santa Catalina and San Pedro Channel. This body of water has produced more than 150 documented cases of UFOs and USOs. With an average depth of about 3000 feet, and some areas one mile deep, there are plenty of places for USOs to hide. Objects have been seen diving into the water, and flying out, sometimes both! One of the most interesting types of USO encounters are cases in which these craft have targeted boaters. There are nearly a dozen cases on record in which UFOs hover directly over boaters, or even more incredibly, precisely beneath them. Cases have been occurring for decades and are still happening today. On July 10, 1955, the Washington family was in their boat thirteen miles off the coast of Newport Beach when a UFO appeared right over their boat and began to follow them. They called the Coast Guard who agreed to send out a plane to investigate. No sooner had they hung up the radio when the UFO darted away. In July of 1987, a group of people were making a night-crossing from Catalina Island to Rancho Palos Verdes, when a UFO approached and again, stopped over their boat. With a very unusual appearance and making no sound, it was clearly not a conventional aircraft. On January 3, 2004, a gentleman by the name of Young Chyren was shocked to see a UFO hovering right over a sailboat only a short distance off the shore of Santa Monica. When the object remained in place, he quickly grabbed his camera and snapped a photograph, which clearly shows a metallic disc-shaped object, providing more evidence that UFOs are targeting boaters. Even more compelling are those cases in which UFOs (or rather, USOs!) approach boats from underwater. A dramatic case occurred in the late 1980s to an anonymous electronics engineer who was sailing his fully equipped yacht to Santa Cruz Island when a massive, round, glowing, green craft targeted his boat and moved directly underneath it, causing his compasses, depth-sounders and electrical equipment to all fail at once. Or consider the case of a gentleman who was sailing along the coast of Catalina Island at night when a gigantic square of glowing white light appeared under his boat, illuminating the water for hundreds of feet around him. Or the case of a gentleman who was in the Channel Islands area when he saw what he first thought might be whales swimming under his boat. Then one approached closely and he saw that it wasn't a whale; instead it was a round, silvery metallic, saucer-shaped object. These are just a few of the many cases in which USOs are targeting boaters in the Santa Catalina channel. This video presents a chronology of these very interesting encounters, including one case in which a boat was actually sunk by a USO! Why are UFOs targeting boaters? Are they curious? Are they trying to announce their presence? Where are these objects coming from? How many are there? What is the motive behind this very unusual aspect of UFO behavior? This video presents the best cases of boaters that have been targeted by USOs, and answers many of the questions surrounding these types of accounts. If you would like to learn more about USO activity in this very active area, check out my book, "Undersea UFO Base: An In-Depth Investigation of USOs in the Santa Catalina Channel."
