Unidentified Submerged Object Stuns Nuclear Submarine Crew by Traveling at the Speed of Sound

The underwater encounter took place in the late 1990s. The sighting came to light after a scientist who served aboard the Nuclear Submarine USS Hampton decided to come forward and reveal what had happened.


A lot has changed in the last few years in the UFO community. People no longer see the unidentified flying object phenomenon as something conspirative. No longer are people ashamed or scared to speak out. 2022 is perhaps the closest we have come to crystal clear UFO disclosure. There has been a paradigm shift. And it has mostly been positive. NASA is researching the UFO/UAP phenomenon, with top scientists leading the research. The Pentagon has revealed its interest in UFOs, and its UFO office is leading its own study. But there is more to the UFO phenomenon than just unidentified flying objects. The UFO phenomenon also has its counterpart in the seas.

Its called the Unidentified Submerged Object (USO), and it is equally as important as UFOs. I have written in the past about it and stressed that scientists need to pay more attention when it comes to unidentified submerged objects.


Why this matters

If we take a look at some of the most amazing and important UFO sightings, they all seem to happen near or over bodies of water. For example, the famous Navy UFO videos that were declassified years ago took place just off the coast of the United States. A video shared by UFO researcher Jeremy Corbell shows a UFO being tracked by a Navy Destroyer just before the object seamlessly dives into the ocean, producing no splash as it enters the sea. This kind of UFO/USO footage blows my mind.

Unidentified Submerged Objects

Now, a scientist who served aboard the Nuclear Submarine USS Hampton has come forward, revealing a fascinating USO encounter that took place in the 1990s. As per Bob McGwier, the USS Hamtpon was passed by an incredibly fast-moving object, which traveled faster than the speed of sound. The encounter was confirmed by a crew member who was awestruck by the unidentified object’s speed.  Speaking to former fighter Pilot, now UFO researcher Chris Lehto, McGwier said that a person with knowledge of onboard systems cape up to him and said that the USO was “going faster than the speed of sound underwater – but that’s faster than the speed of sound in air.”
