A couple of years ago, a pair of videos started spreading across the internet. In the snippets, some strange entities can be seen in the sky – though it isn’t clear what they are. A few months later, a third clip made it online. Nobody could say for sure what the videos showed – and now the U.S. Navy has piped up on the matter.
All three clips were first publicized by the New York Times newspaper and a body known as the To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science. The first piece of footage was actually recorded back in 2004. In it, a U.S. Navy jet apparently comes across an unexplained object soaring through the skies above San Diego. The other two videos present something similarly bizarre.
In September 2019 an announcement regarding these mysterious videos came from the Navy. However, things didn’t exactly become clearer as a result. In describing the shapes featured in the clips, a spokesman named Joseph Gradisher sidestepped the term ‘unidentified flying object (UFO).’ Instead, he used the more inscrutable phrase ‘unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP).’
The creator of The Black Vault – a website which seeks to reveal confidential governmental information – has spoken out about the Navy’s statement. Indeed, according to John Greenewald Jr., the fact that the authenticity of the clips has been confirmed is huge. Furthermore, he’s even claimed that the footage was never meant to be viewed by the general public.
“The most powerful military doesn’t know what these objects are,” Greenewald told The Washington Post newspaper. “That doesn’t mean aliens, or that they don’t have some plausible logical explanation. But… admitting that they see things in the sky and they can’t identify them, that to me is the most amazing part of this.”
