High Altitude Surveillance Military Drone

3-06-2020, just before sunset. Unmanned military drone Spotted over my house in Upstate NY. With human eye’s it looked like a black bird doing circles high up in the sky. Until I zoomed in and realized what it was. RQ-4A Global Hawk. A 220 million dollar UAV that acts as a massive surveillance platform in the sky.

    That’s actually a MQ-9 Reaper. You can identify it by the propeller at the rear of it and the shape and length of it’s wings and rear elevators. The MQ-4 Global Hawk is powered by a jet engine that has a huge intake on top of the fuselage and overall is about twice as big as the Reaper. If I had to guess I’d say that it was being used for training since the Air National Guard has a UAV training base near Syracuse New York. But it could be being used for surveillance of fires by the Bureau of Land Management, protesters and rioters by the FBI or by the CIA to watch a terrorist sleeper cell. Just joking. There’s a lot of reasons for one to be flying around. Depends on where you live and where you saw it. At least it didn’t have any missiles under it’s wings. That would be a little concerning. The link below has an article that shows the different drones flown by the US government and has a diagram that shows their size and shapes compared to each other as well as the bases that control them and training centers.

    This is exactly what I saw in my dream back in 2002 in the skies above San Diego.
