Official U.S. Navy Photos of Arctic UFO Encounter LEAKED 02-11-2016

A set of newly-released photos detail the U.S. Navy’s close encounter with an enormous UFO.


The case was submitted to The Black Vault by researcher Alex Mistretta, who in turn got photos from one of his anonymous sources in Europe. An interesting story follows the attached pictures.In March of 1971, the USS Trepang, a Sturgeon Class attack submarine, was on a routine military and scientific mission at the edge of the Arctic Ocean.To further investigate, Mistretta enlisted the help of someone to post pictures in hopes that and others may be able to find out more about the images.The images that were found are fantastic. They seem to be of large objects aloft over the ocean, some, if not all, taken from the periscope of a submarine. The big question is are they real, and if so, what are they?

The exact location of the sighting is unknown, but the submarine’s position was estimated between Iceland and the Jan Mayen island in the Atlantic.The unidentified object was first spotted through the periscope by an officer named John Kilika while the photos were taken by the officer who accompanied him, who remains anonymous. The photos are high-quality enough to observe what is going on, which is uncommon in the field of ufology.Mistretta’s source claimed there were a few annotations on the back of one of the photos: “Official photograph. Not to be released. CT.” and “Unauthorized Disclosure Subject. Security Certificate SSN 674. Criminal Sanction.”SSN 674 was the official classification number given to the USS Trepang. Furthermore, the nuclear submarine was indeed in the area at that time. The report also mentioned the presence of Admiral Dean Reynolds Sackett aboard the submarine, which can be verified here. It is unclear whether the encounter involved two distinct UFOs or a single one capable of shape-shifting, but the photos appear to show two distinct objects, one shaped like a cylinder, the other like a triangle.

Unfortunately, more information regarding this interesting case is absent but we will be the first to present it if more information arises.
