The U.S. Navy has finally acknowledged that videos appearing to show UFOs flying through the air are real.
They footage was recorded years ago by fighter pilots, and were later made public by the New York Times.
They were also released by a UFO research group founded by former Blink-182 singer and guitarist Tom DeLonge, who penned a song for the band called “Aliens Exist.”
The images of a “rotating thing” had been captured by a U.S. Navy aircraft, which had sensors locked in on the target.
“As we both looked out the right side of our airplane, we saw a disturbance in the water and a white object, oblong, pointing north, moving,” said Commander David Fravor, who saw it firsthand during a training mission. He described it like a “40-foot long tic tac,” maneuvering rapidly and changing direction.
The object was first sighted in 2004. Similar objects were again seen in 2015.
“This was extremely abrupt like a ping pong ball bouncing off the wall. The ability to hover over the water and go from zero to 12,000 feet and accelerate in less than two seconds was something I have never seen in my life,” Fravor explained.
The Navy has said it still does know what the objects are, and officials are not speculating. A navy spokesman simply confirmed that the objects seen in the various clips are “unidentified aerial phenomena,” or UAPS.
UFO reports were first investigated by a secret 22 million dollar program as part of the Defense Department’s budget.
The program has since been shut down, but it was run by a military intelligence official who told media they found compelling evidence that we “may not be alone.”
