Oh, looks like 2020 is still on it.
With all that has happened in the first quarter, 2020 continues to blow everyone’s minds… More often than not, not in a good way.
Now, the Pentagon has released three videos that show “unidentified aerial phenomena” or what most of us know as “unidentified flying objects” (UFOs).
One video shows the incident that happened in November 2004. Meanwhile, the other two were recorded in January 2015, according to CBS News.
The videos were recorded by Navy fighter pilots during training exercises. All three were officially made public on Monday but they were already leaked between 2017 and 2019 according to Defense Department spokeswoman Sue Gough.
Although Navy officials claim the legitimacy of the videos, they previously insisted that the footage should not be released to the public.
Gough said officials changed their minds after rechecking the videos. Gough told CBS:
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.
The three videos were previously been posted by To the Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences (TTSA).
Watch them below.
Luis Elizondo, the former head of the classified program, told CNN in 2017 that he personally believes “there is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone.”
These aircraft — we’ll call them aircraft — are displaying characteristics that are not currently within the US inventory nor in any foreign inventory that we are aware of.
One of the pilots who saw one of the unidentified objects in 2004 told CNN in 2017 that it moved in ways he couldn’t explain.
“As I got close to it … it rapidly accelerated to the south, and disappeared in less than two seconds,” said retired US Navy pilot David Fravor. “This was extremely abrupt, like a ping pong ball, bouncing off a wall. It would hit and go the other way.”
Senator Harry Reid expressed on Twitter that he was “glad” the videos were already released to the public.
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
