Three U.S. military videos that show footage of “unidentified aerial phenomenon” are authentic, according to U.S. Navy statements obtained by The Black Vault, a blog dedicated to exposing government secrets.
The clips, taken by Navy pilots between 2004 and 2015, show objects that pilots claim performed aerial maneuvers and moved at speeds impossible for known aircraft to accomplish. Here’s everything we know about the objects.
First, there were at least two different UFOs/UAPs involved in the Navy sightings. In a 2017 New York Times interview, retired U.S. Navy Commander David Fravnor said the flying object that he observed from the cockpit of his F/A-18F Super Hornet in 2004 was “around 40 feet long and oval in shape,” and described it as similar to a Tic Tac.
Lieutenant Ryan Graves, another Super Hornet pilot, told the Times that the objects he saw in 2014 and and 2015 looked like a “sphere encasing a cube.” These sightings could be of two separate objects or a single object viewed from different perspectives.
