Conspiracy theories are a normal topic in the lives of many; controversy has sparked on all platforms about whether or not conspiracies actually do exist, and have even been backed by believers all over. Some believe that all of them are just hoaxes, while others claim that there is solid proof of these cryptids’ existence. For those that believe in the extraterrestrial and other beings far beyond our understanding, proof has been found.

On April 29, news media all over was going insane over footage that was released by the Pentagon; footage captured by the United States Navy. The footage, confirmed to be real, shows unidentified flying objects, which are flying at speeds unimaginable to the Navy at the time. The voices in the video can be heard expressing the awe that they get from the sight and speed at which the objects are moving.

According to multiple interviews with Pentagon employees and members of the Navy, it has been confirmed that this is not the first time footage has been released to the public by an unknown source, before being confirmed by officials. In fact, the video that caught the attention of many was the third ever released. Because of the previous speculation about the accuracy and quality of the videos, the positive confirmation sparked an uproar amongst believers and non-believers.

In the black-and-white videos, we can see a circular object, which the fighter jets are locked onto. In the footage, you can hear the pilot exclaim that the objects are “going against the wind; the wind’s 120 miles west,” referring to the entire fleet that was appearing on their radars. This phenomena caught the attention of all of the separate pilots, all of which could not believe what they were seeing. The speed of the object, as well as the way it moved and turned, was not a natural occurrence.

According to the Department of Defense on Defense.gov, the videos were officially released “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,” which was in response to the public’s suggestions that it was edited and fake footage, as well as the public’s confusion in whether or not there were outside extraterrestrial beings that were officially caught on tape. The Department of Defense, or DOD, chose to officially release the footage, for the videos did not “…reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena.”

Because the videos had unauthorized releases in both the years 2007 and 2017, people were skeptical on the accuracy or inaccuracy of the footage, and required answers. However, the official details are still labeled as “unidentified” by the Navy. Despite this, the phenomena has been seen in a positive light, for it can pave the way to new discoveries and more research in the field. Ever since, more apparent UFO sightings have been sparking up in other remote locations; organizations, like the Irish Aviation Authority, also claimed to have a sighting that was reported by commercial airline pilots, but it is currently unknown whether or not their claims have been proven. Until then, all that the people can do is wait.
