There is absolutely no reason to accept any information given about Powers' identity, circumstance, or history at face value. Absolutely none.

Mysterious object off Rhode Island coast extraction delayed by heavy surf. It looks man-made but nobody can figure out the purpose or what it is.

Got around to listening to Peter Davenport's appearance this week with George, turns out a friend and I saw a UFO that was reported to NUFORC by two different people last Saturday night.  We were out in a rural park near Yellow Springs, OH (roughly ten miles east of WPAFB) watching the meteor shower, it was around 2245 EST.  I noticed a very bright flash almost directly overhead, but I saw no navigation lights one would normally see with an aircraft. The light flashed several times over the next ten minutes or so. The intensity of the flashes varied, with time between flashes variable as well.  Whatever it was moved in a random manner, there was no clear path of flight, kinda like a butterfly. There was no sound associated with the object.  My friend immediately called up the "SkyGuide" app on his tablet to see if there was a satellite or other space junk in that part of the sky (none), I called up "FlightRadar24" to see what air traffic was in the area.  The app did identify a couple high flying commercial jets overhead during this period, but they were easily distinguishable from what were we seeing.  We also looked for whatever it was through 8x binoculars (friend) and a first generation NVS (me) but couldn't locate it due to its unpredictable flight path.   It eventually just quit strobing.

No way to tell the size, speed, or altitude of what we saw, but it did appear to be quite high in the sky.  My buddy is a longtime astronomy buff, and I have a very good knowledge of aircraft and their performance characteristics.  If I was a betting man, my best guess is we were looking at an electric motor powered drone with a strobe attached being flown by someone looking to hoax those out watching the meteor shower.  Who knows?

Interesting. I have no idea how high the various amateur drones can go but I'm sure one could configure with LEDs etc to look pretty cool and perspective is hard in the night sky especially. You and your friend are credible reporters/observers (it wasn't, I presume, the typical- in some cases- "I was coming home from surfing and went out for a smoke on Malibu dude, you know, and looked up and..."
You should submit this report to Davenport's site simply for the history and to get it into the record. You could even just cut&paste what you put here. I like Peter Davenport and his stuff and this is a "very interesting" report. As an aside, it is cool, but also, considering these times somewhat troubling, how well those flight apps work. The other day I picked up my brother and fam at the airport and, due to construction temporarily, the 'cell phone waiting lot'' is right near the runway. I could track his plane and watch it land (visually and on the screen) and the app was spot-on. I must say though it brought back good memories of days when you could watch the planes land and some airports even have observation decks where you could have a cup of coffee or a drink and wait, or just watch for fun.

I've contacted Peter requesting information from him. I looked at his "recent reports" section tonight and was surprised to find a good number of sightings quite similar to ours in various parts of the country over the past few weeks.  I have a working theory, we'll see if I can get data to flesh it out.  I will send a report to NUFORC once I determine if my theory has merit.

I suspect it was a multi copter drone. They can fly surprisingly high and would be effectively silent. And as they have self stabilising gyros installed, their tracking and stationary positions will be rock solid, even with a slight breeze. The radio range is about a mile so the operator could be some distance from you as long as they have line of sight.

Just my ten cents worth.  :)

I've had a vaguely similar experience. This was a few years back on a landing strip in Leelanau County, MI. We were trespassing out onto the runway to stargaze, and there were two "flashes" a minute or two apart almost like a strobe light or a flash bulb going off, just pure white and instantaneous. All the people in our group of saw them.

It wasn't any kind of trail cam or security system as the airport had virtually no security or fencing at the time.

That was pretty much my thought as well, at least until I saw how wide spread the reports were on the NUFORC site. Would take a lot of drone operators and specially strobe equipped drones.  Certainly possible I suppose, but starts to sound like a conspiracy theory if the sightings are as far afield as they seem.

FRBs are relatively new phenomena to astronomers, and only a handful have been discovered to date including a repeating source. But it seems unlikely there will not ultimately be a natural explanation for them.

Otherwise as more and more of them are discovered, the sky will seem to fill up with apparent UFO beacons...

I've heard rumors of particle beam weapons for intercepting ICBM's for a few years now. Could this be?

This article was forwarded to me by a former colleague.  I've been to MacDill, the idea of basing black aircraft there is lunacy.  Take a look at MacDill on Google Earth, it's just a few miles from downtown Tampa, as well as the Tampa International Airport, and just across the bay from St Petersburg.  Why would anyone base classified a/c at an airbase where literally millions of people would have an opportunity to see them?
