Three declassified videos of UFO (Unexplained Aerial Phenomenon) have been released by the US Department of Defense to clarify "any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real".
The videos that were leaked in 2007 and 2017 respectively were published by the New York Times. The third footage is said to be released by an organization run by Blink-182 singer Tom DeLonge. After its release, sparks of curiosity led to the claims that these videos showed aliens or unidentified flying objects (UFO).
The video released in 2007 was filmed by two navy fighter pilots and if you watch it closely, you'll see a round object hovering over the water. The other two videos are that of objects that are moving through the air and one of them is spinning as well. In the video, you can clearly hear the pilot saying," Look at that thing, dude! It's rotating!"
Pentagon released an official statement saying, "After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena."
They added, "DOD [Department of Defense] is releasing the videos in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos. The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as 'unidentified'."
It's obvious that people have this yearning or firm belief that there is life outside this planet and the fascination leads to the development of such stories. Many conspiracy theories have been circulated over the years and most of them have been debunked. But, no matter how outlandish and stupendous these stories might sound, are we really that naïve to assume that we're all alone in this universe?
