UFO Crashes Off Okinawa, Japanese Navy Secures Area, Releases Photo

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


According to the site In Other Newz, Nippon Television reported December 5th that “an Unidentified Flying Object, a UFO, went down off the coast of Okinawa, an island at the southern tip of Japan. Several news crews, along with police and emergency vehicles, rushed to the scene just in time to see the UFO sink into the water, according to multiple sources.”  

UFO photo purportedly released by Japanese Navy


Japanese Navy officials have released the first ever photo of the UFO that crashed off the coast of Okinawa yesterday. The photo appears grainy and somewhat unclear since the vessel is submerged underwater but clearly shows a power source still glowing brightly atop the aircraft’s dome.

“We wanted to release this photo to the world and confirm the reports issued yesterday,” said Japanese Navy spokesman Yoshido Hari. “This picture will give credence to what some of our citizens living on Okinawa witnessed yesterday. We clearly still have many days of salvaging ahead of us but we will take our time and bring the aircraft up in one piece. We must preserve the object as much as possible.”

Numerous reports began to circulate around the globe yesterday about a possible UFO crash off the coast of Okinawa. Many people, including the mainstream media, believed the reports to be false or an elaborate prank. The picture snapped by Japanese Navy divers will put those thoughts of falsity to rest.

“This is not a joke,” said Hari, speaking candidly to reporters. “We have clear evidence at the bottom of the ocean that indicates UFO presence. What the world once thought virtually impossible is now a reality. It is up to us to preserve that reality in order to study the structure of the vessel and perhaps even the alien lifeforms inhabiting it.”

Several scientists from the United States have already been dispatched by the U.S. government and will arrive in Tokyo sometime today. It is unclear, however, if the vessel will be moved to the capital city for further study and research or if it will remain housed in a hangar on Okinawa.

“At this early junction, we can’t say for sure where we will be conducting our studies,” said Hari. “Our main objective at the moment is salvaging the giant aircraft in one piece. We must get it out of the water before saltwater eats away critical pieces. Obviously, keeping the structure intact would be optimal.”

Asked if the Japanese Navy had any intentions of releasing future photos of the downed UFO, Hari commented, “At this time we have no other photos to release. The water is somewhat murky and the picture released to the world this morning is the best quality available at this time. We will try to produce other photos of the vessel as conditions improve.”

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda is expected to arrive on the small island sometime tomorrow to speak with Navy representatives regarding the salvaging of the UFO. Needless to say, the Japanese government has a huge interest in preserving the aircraft as it will be used for future research endeavors.

It  was a good story and well written but unfortunately is  not  true.  No Japanese news sources are reporting the event.  the originating site admits it is completely made up, but that hasen’t stopped the story from going viral. 

What appears to be a pink-colored UFO hovering in the sky in these Google street view images of Jacksonville, Texas is suspiciously similar to the UFO photo allegedly released by the Japanese Navy.  Do the images below  offer confirmation of the story or confirmation of a hoax?

Another view of the pink UFO seen on the Google street cam.  

The story of the sunken UFO is appearing at many UFO sites from only from In Other Newz, but not in Japanese print media.  A search of YouTube while turning up videos of recent UFO sightings in Japan, shows no evidence of a UFO crash in Okinawa.

      The photo above claiming it is from the UFO crash in Japan on 12/5/12 is the SAME photo that shows up on Google earth street view for a street in Texas!! Hmm. Yea right. Check out links below. Oh and there are many more links. :wink:

        I knew I remembered seeing this UFO? a few months ago. Thank you TL823 for exposing another hoaxer. This is one of the reasons I read this Before It’s News crap to expose people out and out lying either just to see their name on the internet or so they can dupe people so they can make money. What do you say to this Alton Parrish? Nothing? What a surprise.

    • LukeSkywatcher

      It’s all happening!

    • Pateriot

      The first three photos are without a doubt, lense flare!!

      Some more weak evidence to add the ever growing pile. Show me an actual alien aircraft or alien species not some lights in the sky. It just seems like there’s a big magic show being put on and we’re all believing it. Question is, who’s the magician? and why pull this trick? It’s easy for magician to make you believe he can cut a body in half, pull a rabbit out of a hat etc.. lights in the sky should be a walk in the park. And i’m not suggesting an actual magician for the record. Smoke and mirrors, cloak and dagger, now we’re on to something. Aliens didn’t come here to give us a light show.

    • Shadow Killer

      This is exactly why the UFO mystery will never be solved because of A*s-Clowns like ‘In Other’! :mad:

        Totally agree. Those who have an agenda one way or the other will always try to muddy the waters. Shame those who can’t deal with it try to ruin it for others all in effort to make themselves feel better or further their own agenda.

      So, ET’s travel trillions of miles, far more than we could dream of traveling or surviving today, and crash into the ocean instead of landing somewhere in a controlled way? Rubbish!
      Unless the ships occupants are teenagers out on a joy ride, its just another hoax in poor taste and bad editing.

      Google street view is street view not ocean, is not updated every minute so how could they get multiple photos of a UFO that is in the ocean? Also one of the photos is of it in the air but you said they got their just in time to see it sink. Several news crews got their in time to take these, “grainy”, photos. I thought Japanese technology was some of the best in the world but all they got was a few grainy photos. I can take a photo of something several feet underwater with a grocery store camera and it would come out better than this. As usual a grainy blurry photo of a UFO equals HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

      What UFO? What Navy? That’s a lens flare.

      I know it seems too simple. But to them it’s everything about Earth. Our gold, rare in the galaxy is the reason for this decades long UFO season. :roll:
