Over the years, we’ve become somewhat immune to so-called UFO sightings after learning that many of them are easily explained away as weather balloons, test aircraft, or outright hoaxes.
But what if the U.S. military had footage of genuine UFOs and verified their authenticity? That would certainly add a great deal of validity to the theory that such things exist.
Well you might want to sit down, because the U.S. Navy just announced that three videos showing UFO encounters are indeed the real deal, according to Popular Mechanics:
The U.S. Navy has confirmed that three online videos purportedly showing UFOs are genuine. The service says the videos, taken by Navy pilots, show ‘unexplained aerial phenomena,’ but also states that the clips should have never been released to the public in the first place.”
This video was shot in 2004 and nicknamed FLIR1:
“(It) was taken off the coast of California in 2004 by pilots flying from the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz. In the videos, air crews loudly debate what the objects are and where they came from.”
Be sure and note some of the maneuvers the UFO takes in this video. None of those moves are possible with existing aviation technology.
This clip carries the name “Gimbal,” and NBC News notes:
“A crew member is heard saying ‘look at that thing’ about an object that they said appeared to be going against the wind. One says they believed it was a drone.”
Keep in mind, the military doesn’t say these are proof of alien life:
“The Pentagon says the aerial objects in the videos are simply unidentified, and for now, unexplained. The Navy is pointedly not saying the objects are flying saucers or otherwise controlled by aliens.”
This video has, by far, the best name: “Go Fast.” And once you see the footage, you’ll understand why.
Taken in 2015, this video shows an object sailing over the water as crew members ask “what the f— is that?” and “what is that, man?”
Reportedly, the videos have undergone the review and declassification process and were cleared for release. At least that’s the assertion from the group the released them: To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science.
But as with most things that involve UFOs or UFO phenomena, there’s a debate over that claim, with U.S. Navy spokesperson Joseph Gradisher disputing the assertion:
“He said the video from 2004 from the Nimitz was widely shared throughout the ship at the time and was posted online by a crew member in 2007. The online post came to the attention of Navy officials in 2009, but officials decided not to pursue the matter because of the time that had elapsed and the size of the crew at the time, which was around 5,000, he said.
The Navy ‘has no information’ on how the other two videos were released into general circulation, Gradisher said. ‘These videos are copies of official Navy footage taken by Naval personnel conducting training missions in controlled military airspace,’ he said.”
While the government may insist that these videos don’t verify the existence of alien life, ask yourself a question: What else could these objects be? If even the Navy says they’re genuine, that raises more questions than it answers.
In time, we may finally have evidence that we aren’t alone in the universe. For now, we have three of the coolest videos ever recorded which if nothing else prove that not everything in this world can be explained, no matter how much we want them to be.
