Police Officer Snaps Photo of US Coast Guard Airplane Chasing UFO

A Bradenton Beach Police Officer has snapped a fascinating photograph that shows a US Coast Guard airplane chasing a saucer-shaped UFO.


In Manatee County, Florida, Anna Maria Island is known for its heavy tourism. But what are the odds that some of its visitors are from outer space? Well, I am not sure, but after looking at the photograph of a Coast Guard plane chasing a UFO, I might be convinced that some of th visitors are not of this world. While patrolling Coquina Beach on November 5, a Bradenton Beach police officer snapped the odd photograph. In it, we see a Coast Guard plane chasing a flying saucer. “I watched a Coast Guard plane fly over the bay, then turn back toward the Gulf. I looked up and saw a big black thing in the sky,” Bradenton Beach Police Officer Charles Morose told the Ana Maria Island Sun.

Traveling at 500mph

As explained by the police officer, based on the size of the US coast guard airplane, the object that was being pursued was around the size of a car or maybe a small aircraft. Based on the fact that the Coast Guard plane changed course and returned toward the Gulf, Morose believes it may have seen the object. As soon as the aircraft started following the object, which was nearly stationary when he first spotted it, its speed and trajectory quickly changed. In Morose’s estimation, the UFO was traveling at least 500 mph. “It just shot off like a rocket toward the horizon, and it was just gone. I’m no UFO conspiracy theorist, and I’m not saying it was from space or anything like that, but there was something in the sky, and it was hauling butt.”

Not a drone

As revealed by the Sun, the officer argues that whatever the object was, it was neither a drone nor a bird. As someone who lives in the area on a daily basis, Morose is familiar with drones and the birds that live there. In his eyes, it’s an exciting encounter with something strange that will remain a mystery for some time to come. People around the world have become quite interested in UFO sightings. And even more so now that NASA has officially stated it is investigating unidentified flying objects. The Pentagon, too, has publicly stated it is researching UFOs in an attempt to figure out what these objects are and whether they are a threat to national security.
