US Navy Confirms These UFO Videos Are The Real Deal

In December of 2017, the organization released videos claiming to be "US military videos of unidentified aerial phenomenon".

The Navy's choice of words when confirming the videos as being of real UFOs also raised eyebrows within the alien tracking community. But a Navy spokesperson says the clips show "unexplained aerial phenomena", which is not to say that they're piloted by aliens. That's a big leap from how videos like these have been handled or described in the past.

The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs), as referred to by the Navy, are called "FLIR1", "Gimbal" and "GoFast". Never before has a branch of the armed services declared a picture or video of an object is a true unknown or unidentified aerial object.

In a subsequent interview with The Washington Post, Gradisher downplayed the significance of the moniker, saying that "unidentified aerial phenomena" was not a new term and that the Navy preferred it to the more popular "UFO" because the latter comes with cultural stigma that might discourage pilots from reporting such incidents for fear of being labeled, well, kooky.

John Greenwald, the author of a civilian archive of declassified government documents, had requested information in August from the Navy regarding the videos.

A Navy official has confirmed that recently released videos of unidentified flying objects are real, but that the footage was not authorized to be released to the public in the first place.

Unfortunately for the White House, this new scandal is just getting started, as is the search for the truth. But a conversation between two foreign leaders is not itself an intelligence activity.


"I very much expected that when the USA military addressed the videos, they would coincide with language we see on official documents that have now been released, and they would label them as "drones" or "balloons, '" Greenwald told Motherboard". They went on the record stating the "phenomena" depicted in those videos, is "unidentified".

In a statement to Politico, the Navy nodded to "a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated airspace in recent years".

"The department will continue to investigate, through normal procedures, reports of unidentified aircraft encountered by U.S. military aviators in order to ensure defense of the homeland and protection against strategic surprise by our nation's adversaries". "It is important that we prioritize data available for public review, as compared to statements and implications", he said.

The second video is from the USS Nimitz in 2004 and later released, showing the study parameters in the video, and the light captured in the frame zoom quickly to the left and out of frame.

Lieutenant Ryan Graves, another Super Hornet pilot, told the New York Times that the objects he saw in 2014 and 2015 looked like a "sphere encasing a cube".
