Three footages posted online which have been described as being associated to UFO sightings do footage of “unidentified aerial phenomena indeed,” a U.S. Navy spokesman verified.
However, as for specifics, spokesman Joseph Gradisher stated the Navy does not know what the objects are.
In the website, last week first reported the Navy’s “unidentified aerial phenomena” designation and mentioned the three footages are generally referred to as FLIR1, Gimbal, GoFast.
The footage has also been posted online by the group to The Stars Academy of Arts & Science.
The footage called FLIR1 reveals an oblong-shaped object, which accelerates out of the way from sensors. The group states that footage is from 2004 and the “2004 Nimitz incident.
Gradisher didn’t identify the footages in his emails, however, stated the footage from the 2004 sighting is from an aircraft of the carrier USS Nimitz.
Within the footage called Gimbal, a crew member is heard saying “take a look at that thing” about an object that they stated seemed to be going against the wind. One assumes they thought it was a drone.
The footage called Go Fast, which the group notices from 2015, reveals an object that appears to be above the water and crews are heard asking “what the f— is that?” and “what’s that, man?”
The Stars Academy of Arts & Science said online that U.S. military footages of “unidentified aerial phenomenon” have been via the declassification review process and approved for public release.
Gradisher disputed those assertions. He mentioned the footage from 2004 from the Nimitz was widely shared throughout the ship on time and was posted online by a crew member in 2007. The online post came to the attention of Navy officials in 2009; however, officials decided not to pursue the matter due to the time that had elapsed and the size of the crew at the time, which was around 5,000, he stated.
The Navy “has no data” on how the other two footages have been released into general circulation, Gradisher stated. “These footages are copies of official Navy footage taken by Naval personnel conducting training missions in controlled military airspace,” he said.
