Yes you heard it right, for the first time in history the Pentagon confimred that videos showing unidentified flying objects that moved in ways he couldn't explain are real.
The Pentagon has officially released three short videos showing "unidentified aerial phenomena" that had previously been released by a private company.
The videos show what appear to be unidentified flying objects rapidly moving while recorded by infrared cameras.
The Pentagon 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.
The US Navy has previously acknowledged that the three UFO videos that were released by former Blink-182 singer Tom DeLonge and published by The New York Times are of real “unidentified flying objects”.
This is the first time in history there's official confirmation from the Pentagon, US navy, or any other US official branch of the military of government regarding a UFO sighting.
Up until today every video or sighting of a UFO was dismiseed as being “drones” or "weather balloons” or other excuses.
This does not mean the Penatagon and the US navy says these were aliens, just that these UFOs are something it was not able to identify, meaning they're are not any type of known plane, drone or any flying object that's known to the US navy and its experts.
The first video of the unidentified object was taken on November 14, 2004, and shot by the US navy F-18’s gun camera. The second video was shot on 2004 by a US fighter pilots and shows another aerial vehicle with pilots commenting on it. The third video is a US Navy footage of an unidentified flying object off the east coast of the United States in 2015.
All of these videos have been verefied by the US navy as being real and showing real UFOs.
Luis Elizondo, the former head of the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), has previously said that people should pay attention to the comments the government is making about UFOs.
“What the pilots encountered that day was able to perform in ways that defied all logic and our current understanding of aerodynamics. Furthermore, beyond what the pilots saw with their own trained eye, the technological feat they encountered was further verified by the impressive Aegis SPY-1 radar, America’s premier radar system at the time, and even gun camera footage and sonar systems from submarines accompanying the carrier."
Luis Elizondo interviewed by CNN.
Currently the US Navy is drafting new guidelines for pilots and other personnel to report encounters with “unidentified aircraft”, a significant new step in creating a formal process to collect and analyse the unexplained sightings – and destigmatise them.
To be clear, the Pentagon and the US Navy aren't endorsing the idea that its sailors have encountered alien spacecraft, but they're acknowledging the strange aerial sightings by credible and highly trained military personnel and that they need to be recorded in the official record and studied – rather than dismissed as some kooky phenomena from the realm of science-fiction.
