- The Pentagon has declassified three videos of UFOs, or “unidentified aerial phenomena,” after years of speculation about them.
- The videos, which can be seen in full below, were taken by Naval aircraft cameras and show small floating objects that baffled some of the pilots filming them.
- The clips were taken between 2004 and 2015, had previously been leaked by media outlets and UFO research groups.
- The Pentagon admitted their authenticity last September, but said in January that the material it had about the UFOs would cause “grave damage” to national security if released.
- In a statement on Monday, the Pentagon said the videos themselves don’t reveal “sensitive capabilities” and won’t hurt future UFO investigations.
- Retired Sen. Harry Reid, who authorized a research program into UFOs as Senate Majority Leader, tweeted that this release only “scratches the surface” of what the Pentagon has on file.
The Pentagon has declassified and released three videos of unidentified aerial phenomena — commonly known as UFOs — after years of speculation about them.
The videos, captured on Naval aircraft cameras with infrared targeting systems, show black shapes floating and sometimes accelerating at incredible speeds against the wind, as baffled pilots watched.
All three videos had been previously leaked, prompting the Pentagon to confirm their authenticity in September 2019 in response to a request under the Freedom of Information Act.
In January, it stated that the briefing materials it held about the videos were classified as top secret and would cause “exceptionally grave damage to the National Security of the United States” if released.
Despite longstanding popular association with stories of aliens, the Pentagon term for UFOs — unidentified aerial phenomena — does not imply extraterrestrial origin.
