UFO evidence: Pentagon releases 3 videos of ‘unidentified aerial phenomena’ – watch here
Two of the videos were shot in January 2015 and the other in November 2004. These grainy videos, the Pentagon says, depict “unexplained aerial phenomena”, with some believing they show alien UFOs.
The Pentagon has officially released three short videos that show US Navy pilots encountering what appear to be "unidentified aerial phenomena". These grainy videos had previously been released by a private company.
Two of the videos were shot in January 2015 and the other in November 2004. These three videos had already come out in 2007 and 2017 via "unauthorized releases”, said the US Department of Defence. The Navy had already confirmed the videos were authentic.
These videos were first released by To The Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences -- a company co-founded by former Blink-182 musician Tom DeLonge that says it studies information about unidentified aerial phenomena.
The videos show what appear to be unidentified flying objects rapidly moving while recorded by infrared cameras. Two of the videos contain service members reacting in awe at how quickly the objects are moving. One voice speculates that it could be a drone. Watch here:
The release of the videos by the Pentagon adds to the legitimacy of the videos and will spur more speculation that humans have recently interacted with extra terrestrials. The Navy has guidelines for reporting UFO sightings.
The Navy previously acknowledged the veracity of the videos in September of last year. They are officially releasing them now, "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," according to Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough.
"After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems," said Gough in a statement, "and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena."
The Pentagon has previously studied recordings of aerial encounters with unknown objects as part of a since-shuttered classified program that was launched at the behest of former Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, CNN reported.
Reid tweeted on Monday that he was "glad" the Pentagon officially released the videos, but that "it only scratches the surface of research and materials available. The US needs to take a serious, scientific look at this and any potential national security implications".
I’m glad the Pentagon is finally releasing this footage, but it only scratches the surface of research and materials available. The U.S. needs to take a serious, scientific look at this and any potential national security implications. The American people deserve to be informed. https://t.co/1XNduvmP0u— Senator Harry Reid (@SenatorReid) April 27, 2020

Tom Delonge really left Blink 182 and forced the government to declassify UFO videos.... pic.twitter.com/DImdCjO8c9— JakeFrom#basedFarm (@JakeGruelle) April 28, 2020
