UFO sighting 2019

Newly-leaked UFO video is real, confirms Pentagon

The footage was filmed by a US Navy pilot in July 2019

The Pentagon has confirmed the legitimacy of newly-leaked photos and videos of a UFO, revealing that it was filmed by US Navy personnel in 2019.

The green-hued footage was published by Mystery Wire and Extraordinary Beliefs last week, and shows a blinking triangular object flying through the sky. According to CNN, the photos and videos had been circulating since last year.

Sue Gough, a spokesperson for The Defense Department, told CNN: “As we have said before, to maintain operations security and to avoid disclosing information that may be useful to potential adversaries, The Department of Defense 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 unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP).”

Gough also revealed that the new footage is included in “ongoing examinations” by the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, which was created in August to investigate UFO sightings observed by the military.

In July last year, The Defence Department said that the task force had been established to “standardise collection and reporting” of UFO sightings, and that it would share some of its findings with the public twice a year.

The announcement came three months after the Pentagon declassified three videos of UFOs, which had previously been leaked in 2007 and 2017. Speaking to Dazed in April last year, Nick Pope, who investigated UFOs for the UK government’s Ministry of Defence in the early 90s, said the declassification wasn’t “quite the ‘disclosure’ that the UFO community dream about” but that “we’ve come a long way from the usual official denials and debunking”.

Pope added that government’s typically deny UFO sightings “because of the embarrassment that comes from the implication that despite our sophisticated air defence network, there are still things in our skies that we can’t identify”.

In January, the US government released hundreds of documents about UFOs, which are available for the public to download for free. Dating back to the 1980s, the reports supposedly contain all of the information the CIA has about UFOs. You can download them here.
