Unidentified Submerged Objects’ Phenomena
An unidentified submerged object, or USO, is any object or optical or mechanical detection phenomenon of unknown origin observed under water that remains unidentified even after thorough investigation. This particular use of the acronym should not be confused with USO, the popular abbreviation of the United Services Organization. The maritime analog to UFOs, or unidentified flying objects, unidentified submerged objects are often seen by those who study unidentified flying objects as a related phenomenon (ufologists). Likewise, many sightings of USOs constituting “typical” UFOs emerging from the water are seen as a subset of the latter rather than of the former.
Unidentified Submerged Objects or USOs are any objects or optical phenomenon seen in the water which are of unknown origin and cannot be identified even after being thoroughly investigated. These Unidentified Submerged Objects are seen by most ufologists and investigators as a phenomenon the same as or similar to UFOs, Unidentified Flying Objects, the difference being they are seen traveling under or entering or leaving a body of water.
Most USO sightings are of a “typical” UFO emerging from the water, and are not seen or classified as a separate phenomenon by most people. Although identifying and dispelling unidentified flying objects has typically been important to militaries as a national security, the relatively rare USO sightings, compared to UFO sightings have never been reported as a national threat or caused the sensation that typical UFO sightings often have.
Ranging is size and shape the most common USO sightings are of disk shapped or cylindrical shapped objects. Traveling at speeds far exceeding any earth based underwater craft these objects typically travel anywhere between 150 and 500 knots when submerged. Some of these objects have even been reported as traveling at much higher speeds.
UFOs have been seen by many people all over the world and for a planet where two thirds of the surface is covered by water it should come as no surprise to the eclectic that there is more life hidden away from our eyes than what we get to see on TV. USOs or Unidentified Submerged Objects have been seen by many explorers, sailors, naval officers, fisherman and regular folk getting around the planet in their ships and boats. Deep Sea UFOs is a HistoryChannel Documentary on the phenomena of underwater UFOs with some interesting case studies of USO encounters tracing far back to the time when Columbus and his crew were crossing the Bermuda Triangle and sighted mysterious underwater lights which top UFO researchers like Stanton Friedman believe correspond to USO activity reported in modern times.
Unidentified submerged objects are occasionally reputed to have flown into and out of bodies of water that are choked with heavy ice coverings as if the ice presents no barrier whatsoever. After these reports, large holes have been observed that do not appear marked by catastrophic impact. Some have proposed that these USOs possess the ability to melt ice at speed of transit. Examples of this have allegedly occurred in Norway, Sweden, and Russia, where these objects have been reported flying into and out of the water in the area.
There is a strong belief among some that these UFOs emerge from inside the Hollow Earth and have their origins in the super advanced ancient city of Atlantis which lies somewhere in the depths of the Atlantic ocean. Many folks living along the Indian coastline have also witnessed bright colorful lights in the sky, particularly right before the Tsunami hit the eastern coast.
