“DOD is 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.”
Three videos with “unidentified aerial phenomena” have made their way around the internet for years after someone leaked them in 2007 and 2017. The Navy authenticated the videos as Leslie blogged last year.
Because an alien invasion would be the cherry on top for 2020!
From CBS News:
“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,” [Defense Department spokeswoman Sue] Gough said.
“DOD is 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,” Gough said. “The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as ‘unidentified.'”
CBS News also detailed the videos:
The 2004 incident occurred about 100 miles out in the Pacific, according to The New York Times, which first reported on the video in 2017. Two fighter pilots on a routine training mission were dispatched to investigate unidentified aircraft that a Navy cruiser had been tracking for weeks.
The Navy pilots found an oblong object about 40 feet long hovering about 50 feet above the water, and it began a rapid ascent as the pilots approached before quickly flying away. “It accelerated like nothing I’ve ever seen,” one of the pilots told The Times.
The pilots left the area to meet at a rendezvous point about 60 miles away. When they were still about 40 miles out, the ship radioed and said the object was at the rendezvous point, having traversed the distance “in less than a minute,” the pilot told The Times.
The other two videos took place in 2015 with pilots catching “objects moving rapidly through the air.”
In one video, a pilot called the objects drones while another said they’re “going against the wind” and “rotating.” A pilot in the second video asked, “What the f*ck is that?”
The pilots said “that they had a series of interactions with unidentified aircraft during training missions in 2014 and 2015 along the East Coast from Virginia to Florida.” Their experiences forced the Navy to draw up protocols on how pilots report any unidentified flying objects.DONATE
