A photo of a flatbed semi-hauler snapped on Friday morning -- March 4, 2016 -- as it transported a mysterious saucer-shaped object draped in tarpaulin on Arizona State Route 77 near Holbrook, has gone viral on social media. Public curiosity about the mysterious object was piqued after inquiries with the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) by a local Arizona station elicited a "cryptic response."
The photo (see below) was uploaded to social media by Charlene Yazzie. She passed the truck while driving on Arizona State Route 77 near Holbrook in Arizona. She was surprised when she noticed the truck was escorted by black Department of Public Safety (DPS) vehicles. She wondered what the covered flying saucer-shaped object could be and snapped a picture."I was driving north and the truck was headed south to the freeway," she told local Arizona station KPHO. "It was escorted by three DPS vehicles."
She uploaded the picture to Facebook where it attracted a lot of attention. Members of the UFO community speculated freely about it.
When KPHO approached the DPS for an explanation of the mysterious tarp-draped object, the Duty Office responded, saying, "Unfortunately we do not know what that is but it looks interesting."
The response fuelled suspicion and sparked even wilder speculation, with conspiracy theorists construing it as an acknowledgment that the object was top secret and that the DPS personnel who escorted it had also been kept in the dark about what it was.
UFO conspiracy theorists believe that the military and government agencies have recovered crashed UFOs from multiple sites in the past and that government scientists and engineers are working in multiple top-secret bases to reverse-engineer the propulsion technologies of the UFOs.
Related conspiracy theories that emerged in the decades after the Roswell incident claim that the U.S. government entered into military-technology alliance with advanced alien races that helped the Nazis to develop the V-2 rocket technology.
Major breakthroughs in the U.S. space program in the era after the Second World War were due to assistance received from advanced alien races, such as the Grays, the Tall Whites, and the highly evolved Arcturian races.
Reports of ongoing advanced research into "impossible" EM Drive technology at NASA's Eagleworks Laboratory and a new technology called "directed energy propulsion," which could make a journey to Mars last only 30 minutes, have fuelled speculation that major breakthrough has been achieved in decades-long efforts to reverse-engineer UFOs recovered from UFO crash sites.
According to conspiracy theorists, government agencies are deliberately teasing with snippets of information released to the media to prepare the public for the unveiling of new radical technologies derived from alien spacecraft reverse-engineering projects.UFO blogger Scott C. Waring also asserted that the semi-hauler was carrying a flying saucer UFO, and that it was being transported from the top-secret Area 51 military base in the Nevada Desert.
He suggested that the UFO could be the latest advanced technology from the U.S. government's alien allies.
"This could be some of the alien tech being moved out of Area S4, part of Area 51," he wrote. "For the USAF to be transporting it and not flying it, means this is the newest alien tech -- probably given recently from aliens to the USAF as a gift."
But some skeptics criticized Waring's assumption that the government would transport "earth shattering secret equipment down a civilian roadway."
"Ha ha! What is dumber than transporting a potentially earth shattering piece of secret equipment down a civilian roadway? Do it during the light of day! C'mon guys," one skeptic wrote.
Another commented, "But it is a well-known fact that Scott don't have a clue what he is talking about. This is no UFO nor is it alien tech."
