The U.S. Department of Defense has released three declassified videos to the public, all of which show “unexplained aerial phenomena”.
The Pentagon says they released these videos in an effort to “clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real”.
All three videos had been leaked before, 2007 and 2017.
Two had been published by the New York Times, while the third was leaked by an organization co-founded with former-Blink-182 singer, Tom DeLonge. After these initial leaks, many people thought they showed proof of alien unidentified flying objects (U.F.O.).
One of the videos shows a clip filmed by two Navy pilots in 2004, and shows a round object hovering above the water, about 100 miles out in the Pacific Ocean.
Two other videos show objects moving through the air, one of which is spinning.
The Pentagon made an official statement on the videos:
“After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorised 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. DOD [Department of Defense] 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. The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as ‘unidentified’.”
The existence of alien life and their coming to our planet has long-been the subject of much scrutiny and conspiracy theories, as it all correlates with our obsession with the unknown. It came to head a in 1947 when the Roswell incident happened: a farmer in Roswell, New Mexico found debris from what was believed to have been an alien craft. These kinds of theories, suspicions, and beliefs have permeated throughout our culture forever, and they never seem to dwindle.
DeLonge also tweeted out about the release, thanking his shareholders in his organization, To the Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences, and that he hopes to fund further projects in the future.
With today’s events and articles on my and @TTSAcademy’s efforts to get the US Gov to start the grand conversation, I want to thank every share holder at To The Stars for believing in us. Next, we plan on pursuing the technology, finding more answers and telling the stories.
