The Department of Defense reported that recently leaked images and videos of UFOs were real and captured by navy officers, adding to the increasing curiosity in unidentified flying objects, or what the US government refers to as unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP).
Navy staff captured photographs and videos of a flashing triangular shape in the sky in 2019, as well as other UAPs, is known as a “sphere,” “acorn,” and “metallic blimp,” according to Sue Gough, a Pentagon (the headquarters building of the United States Department of Defense )spokesperson but the defense department, according to Gough, will not comment further on the quality of the video or share any examinations into it.
“To maintain operations security and to avoid disclosing information that may be useful to potential adversaries,” Gough said in the statement.
The Pentagon posted three videos of UAPs taken between 2004 and 2015 in April of this year, which included audio of pilots marveling at the speed of the objects they were seeing. The footage’s publication sparked federal concern in investigating UAPs. Following bipartisan criticism, the Defense Department established a UAP task force in August. Congress approved a government spending bill in December that contained a recommendation to the national intelligence officer and defense secretary to issue a report on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAPs) within six months.
Last month, John Ratcliffe, Donald Trump’s former intelligence chief, teased the report’s contents, telling Fox News that it would contain “unknown sightings from all over the globe.”Ratcliffe said, “Frankly, there are a lot more sightings than have been made public.”To follow the deadline set by Congress’s budget bill, the UAP report must be released by early June.
