The following recounts an incident in 2004 that advocates of research
into U.F.O.s have said is the kind of event worthy of more
investigation, and that was studied by a Pentagon program that
investigated U.F.O.s. Experts caution that earthly explanations often
exist for such incidents, and that not knowing the explanation does not
mean that the event has interstellar origins.

Cmdr. David Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Jim Slaight were on a routine training
mission 100 miles out into the Pacific when the radio in each of their
F/A-18F Super Hornets crackled: An operations officer aboard the U.S.S.
Princeton, a Navy cruiser, wanted to know if they were carrying weapons.

“Two CATM-9s,” Commander Fravor replied, referring to dummy missiles
that could not be fired. He had not been expecting any hostile exchanges
off the coast of San Diego that November afternoon in 2004.

Commander Fravor, in a recent interview with The New York Times,
recalled what happened next. Some of it is captured in a video made
public by officials with a Pentagon program that investigated U.F.O.s.

“Well, we’ve got a real-world vector for you,” the radio operator said,
according to Commander Fravor. For two weeks, the operator said, the
Princeton had been tracking mysterious aircraft. The objects appeared
suddenly at 80,000 feet, and then hurtled toward the sea, eventually
stopping at 20,000 feet and hovering. Then they either dropped out of
radar range or shot straight back up.

Sounds like plasma fluctuations along a path of lightening. A stable
