That’s a fascinating account; excellent find DROBNJAK. Yes, gravitomagnetic fields rotate the polarization of light, an effect called gravitational Faraday rotation:Anyway, I found this interesting witness account. Witness watched UFO against clear blue sky, while wearing polarizing glasses and he had seen several dark rings around UFO's circumference. Interestingly, rings appeared to be static, as by formed with standing waves. Dark rings seen trough polarizing glass would imply presence of magnetic field, so called Faraday's effect.
Does anybody knows, can gravitomagnetic field cause polarization of the light, same as the magnetic field?

But as we were discussing earlier, it’s mighty hard to imagine a gravitational field so intense that this effect would be readily apparent to the naked eye through a pair of Polaroid sunglasses.
It takes vastly less energy to produce a polarization effect with a magnetic field acting on the air – especially humid air, via the Faraday effect – here’s a nice video of it (
Today we have an excellent theory that quantifies the magnitude of the gravitational field associated with mass-energy in an ordinary state – but we have no idea whatsoever how mass-energy produces the spacetime curvature effect that we observe. And until we have a theory that describes that coupling, we can’t rule out the possibility that it may be possible to produce gravitoelectromagnetic effects with vastly smaller energies than we now presume are required. We just recorded a podcast about a brilliant new 6D physics theory (with two dimensions of time + four of space) by Itzhak Bars at USC that predicts changes in the gravitational constant at phase changes of matter.
So there may well be a breakthrough in our understanding of gravitation that will be as unexpected and revolutionary as the discovery of electromagnetic induction. I can’t even estimate the number of nights I’ve stayed up trying to figure out a new experimental approach to resolve that question – but I have little doubt that it will seem very simple and obvious in retrospect, like most fundamental technological advancements.
Well, it might not be possible to figure out all of the details that way, but certainly we can learn a great deal by analyzing scientific observations, which is what I find so exciting about Chris O'Brien's mobile ufo observatory project. Think of it this way - just seeing that these peculiar performance characteristics are possible, is a huge step in the right direction. Similarly, Leonardo da Vinci figured out the basic principles of aerodynamic flight by observing birds:I don't think you can figure out a complex craft's propulsion system by external observation. It's like a caveman looking at a motorbike and saying it's pushed along by smoke coming out the exhaust pipes.

We've learned that field propulsion is possible by observing ufos. We might learn far more by observing other physical effects associated with these craft. Paul Hill's book is a testament to this approach.
In fact I often regard these sightings cases as alien contact - it's visual contact with what appears to be an extraterrestrial technology. And in many cases their flight characteristics appear to be intentional aerial demonstrations of the capabilities of their propulsion system, as if these performances are for our benefit. Even a casual analysis strongly suggests a gravitational field propulsion technology at work. I wonder how long it would've taken to consider this possibility, if not for the ufo sightings reported by witnesses.
We should collect as much clear and varied observational evidence as possible, to see what we might learn about them. That's the scientific method. And if we've heard correctly, this is exactly what the military did as soon as sightings became widespread in the late 1940s: high-speed cameras installed on interceptor aircraft (and probably all kinds of magnetometers and infrared cameras as so forth as well over time), cinetheodolites installed at military installations for estimating speed and altitude and trajectory changes. Just as we've learned the intricacies of the Sun's internal processes through external observations, the same may be possible with sufficiently precise and varied observations of ufos.
