The Pentagon Has Officially Released Three Videos Showing UFOs
The videos, which had been leaked and seen before, show Navy pilots interacting with what the Pentagon has called "unidentified aerial phenomena."

The Department of Defense has officially released three declassified videos showing Navy pilots interacting with "unidentified aerial phenomena," aka UFOs.

In a statement Monday, the Pentagon said following a "thorough review," it had determined that the videos do not reveal "any sensitive capabilities or systems" and that their release "does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of [these types of] military air space incursions."

Of the three incidents seen in these videos, the first occurred in November 2004, and the other two in January 2015.


In its statement, the Pentagon acknowledged the fact that these clips had been leaked into the public domain years ago.

A Department of Defense spokesperson said they were 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 2004 video was brought to light in a New York Times story published Dec. 16, 2017, which included interviews with the two pilots who observed the encounter.

The pilots described seeing an oblong object about 40 feet long hovering about 50 feet above the water.

When they approached, the object rapidly ascended into the air and out of sight. “It accelerated like nothing I’ve ever seen,” one of the pilots said in the interview.


Following the story's publication, the Pentagon acknowledged the existence of its Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, which was founded in 2007 and disbanded in 2012. The purpose of the program, which received $22 million in funding, was to study reports of unidentified flying objects.

In May 2019, the New York Times published another story featuring two new videos from January 2015 of Navy pilots encountering similar unidentified objects during flights. The story included interviews with a number of pilots who described seeing extraordinarily strange objects racing through the air.


"Wow, what is that, man?” a pilot can be heard saying in one of the videos. “Look at it fly!”

Although the Pentagon had confirmed the previously leaked videos were authentic, Monday is the first time they have been officially released.

And, per the statement, it still hasn't reached a conclusion about what the videos show.

"The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as 'unidentified,'" it said.

Left-hand of the Govt is not talking with the right-hand of Govt. Some snickering going on at an undisclosed "Area 51"? Maybe

My opinion? The government has some records of such activity but they don't know exactly what the objects are and if alien life form is on the vessel(s).
We send space craft to explorer Jupiter, Saturn... Do you think our automated spacecraft will be a little more capable 1000 years from now?
It's possible we are being explored by more advanced civilization(s) far, far away from us.
We don't fully know how aliens communicate so to assume we should be able to pick up communication signals may prove wrong.
I'm guessing they use a split second signal that can send a massive amount of data so fast we don't have the capability of seeing that it exist.

They probably do a brief fly over and then hurry back home. “ No signs of intelligent life, returning to base!”
