Description: (Sequence of messages in ascending order sent by pilot):
I’ll send more details if I find you are legit. The photo was taken from 36,000 feet making the object perhaps miles across. Notice the shadows on the icebergs going beneath the object and the swirl in the ice flow as if the object had moved.
I was the pilot flying the aircraft. I’ll get the routing from flight tracker to pinpoint the location. I fly for a major US airline. The object did not appear to be moving at the time. But, you can see a disturbance in the ice flow as if it had been moving. There are shadows on the closest ice flows/burgs that are clear. The left side is most obvious. I’ve had many other pilots look at the picture ( some intel types and MIT types) and no one thinks it’s natural. The upper surface is smooth and gray and less reflective than ice. Other huge icebergs can be seen around with the reflective edges.
The sighting was within the last couple months. There was no weather phenomenon involved. We rarely get a day crossing when we get to see Greenland. So I was looking out the window at the ice floes and the up coming terrain. That’s when I saw this object. I didn’t consider it a “flying” object at the time. But in retrospect it looks likes it is just above the relative “icebergs”. The two uniform “intakes” or shadows on the top are also quite interesting. I am a former Air Force pilot as are most of the people I’ve shared the picture with. I “cross the pond” often, and have for many years. This was strange to say the least. Let me know what you are thinking.
Note: The aircraft was flying to the west at 539 MPH at an altitude of 36,000 feet. The first officer was also an ex Air Force pilot. The pilot has provided the date of the sighting, but it is not published in this report so as to not reveal the identity of the pilot and first officer.
One wonders if the object could be an unidentified submerged object (USO). These objects have been reported in the arctic and I have had military witnesses report them. USO’s are common off of the coast of California. As noted by the pilot it appears that the object has disturbed the iceberg environment perhaps by it’s movements. The object was likely very large and as noted by the pilot could be “miles across.” However, we don’t know the apparent size of the object in terms of “arc minutes (e.g. size of dime, pea, etc. held at arm’s length). If this information were available, one could provide a reasonably accurate estimate of the size of the object. The object could also be a “heat source” given that the area in vicinity of the object is darker in color. I also suspect that the object may be coated in ice as it’s color confirms to the background.
The position on the above map is estimated based on information provided by the pilot and the flight tracker data.
