Three videos posted online that have been related to UFO sightings do footage of "unidentified aerial phenomena," a Navy spokesman confirmed.
The three videos (one from 2004 and two from 2015) show the incidents into our military training ranges from unidentified aerial phenomena, "Gradually told NBC News in an emailed statement.
" The Navy has been identified as being unidentified, "he said.
The Black Vault is unidentified aerial phenomena "designation and said the three videos are commonly known as" FLIR1
The videos have been posted online by the group To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science.
The video called FLIR1 shows an oblong-shaped object, which accelerates out of view from sensors. The group says the video is from 2004 and the "2004 Nimitz incident."
Gradisher did not name the videos in his emails, but said the video is from the 2004 sightseeing aircraft from the USS Nimitz.
In the video called Gimbal, a crew member is heard saying "look at that thing"
The video called Go Fast, which is said to have been released in 2015, shows at what that appears to be over the water and crews are being heard "what the f — is that? " and "what is that, man?"
To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science says online that military videos of "unidentified aerial phenomenon"
Gradisher disputed those assertions online by a crew member in 2007. The post came to the attention of Navy officials in 2009, but officials did not decide on the matter because of the time that had passed and the size of the crew at the time, which was around 5,000 , he said.
The Navy said: "The Navy has no information on the other two videos that have been released into circulation." he said.
The New York Times reported in 2017 that the Pentagon's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program for unidentified flying objects, but that said the Defense Department said that it shut down in 2012.
Gradisher said in emails that the bigger issue about the three videos is about to increase
"Any incursion into our training ranges by any aircraft or phenomena, identified or not identified, is problematic from."
While the objects in the three videos are designated as unknown, the uninsured aerial systems – commonly called drones – are more prevelant, "sightings of this nature have increased in frequency. "
While popular culture may refer to unexplained objects as UFOs, the phrase" unidentified aerial phenomena "was borrowed from the United Kingdom and describes "Gradisher said."
Seth Shostak, senior astronomer and institute fellow at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, Calif., Said in an email this Wednesday the videos were "unidentified aerial phenomena"
"The videos were not really being questioned. What is being said? "Shostak, a regular contributor to NBC News, said in an email. "Now I think the answer was easy, that would be known by now. But when I look at these things I see no reason to consider them good evidence for 'alien visitation,' which is what the public likes to think they are. "
He said that in some reported sightings of unidentified flying objects other explanations
