It’s official. Aliens exist…we think. The Pentagon has officially released three short videos showing “unidentified aerial phenomena” that had been making the rounds online for the last few years. The videos, which were captured by US Navy pilots back in 2004 and then again in 2015 appear to show flying objects rapidly moving under infrared cameras. In two of the videos, you can hear the service members reacting in awe at how quickly the objects are moving.
“After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena. aThe Department of Defence is releasing the videos in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos. The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterised as “unidentified”,” the US Department of Defence said in a statement.
While crazy to witness, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen these videos. In December 2017, To The Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences, a company co-founded by former Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge (yep, you know the song) released some initial clips. The videos aren’t conclusive by any means, but in an interview with CNN back in 2017, one of the pilots described it as unexplainable. “As I got close to it … it rapidly accelerated to the south, and disappeared in less than two seconds,” retired US Navy pilot David Fravor said. “This was extremely abrupt, like a ping pong ball, bouncing off a wall. It would hit and go the other way.”
The Navy now has formal guidelines for how its pilots can report when they believe they have seen possible UFO’s.
