The Department of Defense (DOD) has authorized the release of three unclassified Navy footages of unidentified flying objects.
All videos, one taken in November 2004 and the other two in January 2015, were already circulating in the public domain after unauthorized releases in 2007 and 2017.
At one of the videos, a Navy pilot are shocked and chatting with fellow aviator as they witnesses in disbelief what they are seeing in their monitors as their cameras lock-in the tictac shape flying object.
One other video shows an object hovering above the sea, while another video shows one object flying against the wind at break-neck speed.
“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,” said DOD in an official statement.
“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,” it added.
The Pentagon cleared it out that the aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as “unidentified.”
