The U.S. Navy finally recognized footage allegedly showing UFOs hurtling through the air. And while officials said they don’t know what the objects are, they also don’t give hints.
The objects seen in three clips of declassified military footage are “unidentified aerial phenomena,” Navy spokesperson Joe Gradisher said.
The clips, released by To The Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences between December 2017 and March 2018, seem to display fast-moving, oblong objects captured by advanced infrared sensors.
In a 2004 footage, sensors lock on a target as it flies before accelerating out of the frame’s left side, too fast for the sensors to relocate it.
Two 2015 videos contain recordings from U.S. fighter drivers trying to create meaning of what they see.
“It’s a f****g drone, bro,” a pilot says to his colleague in the first clip.
“My gosh! They’re all going against the wind.”
“Look at that thing, dude!”
Gradisher said the Navy’s transparency on unknown airborne phenomena, or UAP, is mainly performed to promote trainees to report “incursions” on the airport that threaten the security of pilots.
“This is all about frequent incursions into our training ranges by UAPs,” he said. “Those incursions present a safety hazard to the safe flight of our aviators and the security of our operations.”
The public clips capture just a fraction of the frequent incursions Navy training ranges see, he said.
“For many years, our aviators didn’t report these incursions because of the stigma attached to previous terminology and theories about what may or may not be in those videos,” he said.
The only way to find out what those UAP are, he said, is to encourage trainees to report them when they see them.
