The US Navy has finally acknowledged footage purported to show UFOs hurtling through the air.



The objects seen in three clips of declassified military footage are "unidentified aerial phenomena," Navy spokesperson Joe Gradisher confirmed to CNN.


The term UFOs, which stands for "unidentified flying objects," is now used less frequently by officials, who have instead adopted the term "unidentified aerial phenomena," or UAP.


Gradisher also said the videos were never cleared for public release. "The Navy has not released the videos to the general public," he said.


The clips, released between December 2017 and March 2018 by To The Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences, appear to show fast-moving, oblong objects captured by advanced infrared sensors.

In footage from 2004, sensors lock on a target as it flies before it accelerates out of the left side of the frame, too quickly for the sensors to relocate it.


Two of the videos, both from 2015, contain audio from US fighter pilots attempting to make sense of what they're seeing.


"It's a f****g drone, bro," a pilot says to his colleague in the first clip.


"My gosh! They're all going against the wind."


"Look at that thing, dude!"



One of the videos was shared by The New York Times in December 2017, when one commander who saw the object on a training mission told the outlet "it accelerated like nothing I've ever seen."


The Times spoke with more pilots, who spotted objects in 2014 and 2015, this year. One of the pilots told the outlet: "These things would be out there all day."


The pilots said the objects could accelerate, stop, and turn in ways that went beyond known aerospace technology, The Times added.


They said they were convinced the objects were not part of a secret military project like a classified drone program.


"Navy pilots reported to their superiors that the objects had no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes, but that they could reach 30,000 feet and hypersonic speeds," the Times report said.


Hypersonic speed is more than about 3,800 mph — five times the speed of sound.


Gradisher said the Navy's transparency about unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAP, is largely done to encourage trainees to report "incursions" they spot in the airfield, which threaten pilots' safety.


"This is all about frequent incursions into our training ranges by UAPs," he said. "Those incursions present a safety hazard to the safe flight of our aviators and the security of our operations."


The public clips capture just a fraction of the frequent incursions Navy training ranges see, he said.
