Look at that thing dude! The Navy pilot’s voice may be grainy but there is no mistaking his bafflement. The unknown entity hovering in front of him in the video is distinctly weird-looking.
This UFO clip - like two others - has been made available to the public for a while, but not officially. Untill now.
On 27th April, the US Department of Defence stated that it was authorising their release, acknowledging that they had been leaked and were "circulating in the public domain".
The unknown aerial entity in the video clip, recorded by US Navy pilots, "remain characterised as 'unidentified'," it said.
The US government stated that it was releasing the video "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".
"The release of the videos by the Pentagon adds to the legitimacy of the the videos and will spur more speculation that humans have recently interacted with extra terrestrials," said a report by the Guardian newspaper.
Instinctively, social media went into a tizzy. "2020 is turning out more like a Hollywood apocalyptic movie," one Twitter user wrote.
