Awful photo quality, on some of them, but some are quite good, and, they’re the real thing.

A set of UFO images taken in the Arctic and believed to date from 1971 is currently igniting the various conspiratorial and paranormal discussion forums around the world.
The images are believed to have been taken from the submarine USS Trepang SSN 674 while it was traveling between Iceland and Jan Mayen Island in Norway. Several UFO hunters say the photographs are evidence of secret US aircraft tests, while others claim they are alien craft looking for places to drill for oil.
Alex Mistretta, a paranormal investigator, studied the images after their first appearance in French paranormal magazine Top Secret , according to Black Vault . Mistretta claims that his source told him that the photos were taken from the American submarine, under the leadership of Admiral Dean Reynolds Sackett, Jr .
Official documents seem to confirm this claim, but the information is so readily available that some have said it does not prove the validity of the images. An inscription on one of the photos reads: “Official Photograph. Not to be Released. CT ”Another:“ Unauthorized Disclosure Subject. Security Certificate (sic) SSN 674. Criminal Sanction ”.
Commentator Bill Smillie suggests that all the images may be of a single object that has the ability to change shape, according to news published in The Express . “This is a selection of photos that feature types of UFOs that have been regularly spotted by witnesses in all parts of the world,” said Nigel Watson, author of UFO Investigations Manua .
“Cigar-shaped or airship-shaped spaceships have been reported since 1896 when there was a large wave of ‘ghost’ airship sightings across the United States.” Watson notes that explorer Benjamin Trueblood had seen it on a polar expedition in 1908, the Eskimos he encountered were keen to talk about an airship they had seen. “I am not sure of their authenticity,” says Watson. “There are definitely going to be ufologists who are going to scratch their heads and speculate that UFOs have a base in arctic regions,” he concludes.

I remember this case. It didn’t get much coverage if I recall. Love that TicTac. The shot of it vertically submerging is fabulous.
