The Pentagon on Monday officially released three unclassified videos taken by Navy pilots that have circulated for years showing interactions with ‘unidentified aerial phenomena’. One of the videos shows an incident from 2004, and the other two were recorded in January 2015.
“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.”
– Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough
The videos show what appears to be unidentified flying objects moving quickly while recorded by infrared cameras. Two of the videos contain service members reacting in awe at how quickly the objects are moving.
The videos became public after unauthorized leaks in 2007 and 2017, and the Navy previously verified their authenticity.
