The US Department of Defense (DOD) recently confirmed that a 2019 video that captured apparent unidentified flying objects (UFOs) is an authentic video. According to the DOD, the UFOs are not necessarily alien in nature but are considered unidentified.
The US Pentagon confirmed last week that the footage of the UFOs was captured by Navy personnel. The military’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force is reportedly investigating the several strange air or spacecrafts captured on video – including one that appears to be a triangle shape, one shaped like an acorn and another one described as a metallic blimp that moves like a rocket.
The Pentagon began forming a brand new task force set for investigating UFOs last August. Investigators would analyze flying phenomena that have been observed by US military aircraft.
On Aug. 4, 2020, Deputy Secretary of Defense David L. Norquist approved the establishment of an Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force (UAPTF). The Department of the Navy, under the cognizance of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, will lead the UAPTF.
The Department of Defense established the UAPTF to improve its understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins of UAPs. The mission of the task force is to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security.
The DOD says it will not provide more detailed information for security reasons, but conspiracy theorists across the net have speculated their announcement is them attempting to prepare the public for possible first encounters.
Photos and videos of triangle-shaped objects blinking and moving through the clouds were taken by Navy personnel, Pentagon spokeswoman Sue Gough said in a statement to CNN.
“As we have said before, to maintain operations security and to avoid disclosing information that may be useful to potential adversaries, DOD does not discuss publicly the details of either the observations or the examinations of reported incursions into our training ranges or designated airspace, including those incursions initially designated as UAP,” Gough said.
US intelligence agencies have been directed to give unclassified reports about unidentified aerial phenomena’s (UAP) to Congress in June.
