US releases videos of "unidentified aerial phenomena" that fueled new UFO theories

For some years now, videos from the United States Navy have fueled theories about unidentified flying objects (UFOs), after being published in 2017 by The New York Times without having been officially made available. The Department of Defense has now authorized the release of the three videos, ensuring they are "unclassifiable" files.

In a statement, the Department of Defense guarantees that after a "thorough" analysis, the institution determined the authorized release of the videos, which date from 2004 and 2015. The decision comes after it has been verified that this publication does not affect US investigations. about "identified phenomenaareosno" in military airspace.

The longest video is 1.16 minutes long and shows a relatively static phenomenon until it disappears from the radar. The file was published with the designation "Flir" in the Navy virtual library.

In the other, shorter videos, it is possible to see two objects in each one. These are much more "restless".

In 2017, the Pentagon admitted to funding a secret program worth several million dollars to investigate UFOs. The so-called Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program ran from 2007 to 2012 and received 22 million dollars per year of funding, resulting in documents describing the appearance of unidentified flying devices that seemed to move quickly, with no visible signs. of propulsion.
