The Pentagon recently confirmed and officially released three UFO sightings caught on camera. These videos show Navy pilots interacting with what the Department of Defense called unidentified aerial phenomena.
The first video is from 2004 and was initially published by the New York Times in 2017.
David Fravor, one of the pilots who saw the UFO in 2017, said he had never seen something like it in his life.
“[It was a] white object, oblong, pointing north, moving erratically,” he told CNN. “As I got close to it, it rapidly accelerated to the south and disappeared in less than two seconds.”
The other pair of videos were recorded in January 2015. They were then released to the public by the New York Times in May 2019.
The Pentagon admitted to taking a deeper look into UFO sightings after these encounters. They provided $22 million in funding to the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program from 2007 to 2012. The program focused on studying reports of UFOs.
“There is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone,” former head of the program Luis Elizondo told CNN. “These aircraft – we’ll call them aircraft – are displaying characteristics that are not currently within the U.S. inventory, nor in any foreign inventory that we are aware of.”
This UFO footage is now part of the public domain.
“I’m glad the Pentagon is finally releasing this footage, but it only scratches the surface of research and materials available,” Senator Harry Reid tweeted, “The United States needs to take a serious, scientific look at this and any potential national security implications. The American people deserve to be informed.”
The importance of Reid’s tweet cannot be overstated, as he was the Senator behind the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program.
Update: FOIA request reveals details of recent East coast UFO sightings.
These recent UFO sightings could provide some insight into a few cryptids that are theorized to come from outer space.
Grey aliens, referred to simply as Greys, are the most recognized cryptid alien-type. They’re grey humanoid creatures with no ears, hair or noses, and they have abnormally large heads and black eyes. Greys are known to have long, skinny bodies without much muscle definition, varying in size. Some claim they’re smaller than humans, while others suggest they could be bigger.
Greys are best known for abducting sleeping victims, scooping them from Earth to perform experiments on them. A few abductees have described their experience as hell-like and torturous. Oftentimes, however, these abductions are forgotten. Abductees have a vague knowledge of being taken, and the mysterious bruises, surgical incisions, punctures, and triangular burns confirm it.
Could Greys be operating these mysterious UFOs?
Chupacabras might be aliens. Found in Puerto Rico after a UFO crashed, these bipedal reptilian creatures will haunt your nightmares. They have red eyes, green or grey scales and spikes lining their backs.
Don’t get too close, as these cryptids are very dangerous. They feed on goats, cows, chickens, and other livestock — possibly even humans. Chupacabras pierce through their victims’ skin and drain them of their blood.
Another theory, however, claims Chupacabras are the test subjects or scouts for a different alien lifeform. If true, they would’ve been sent to Earth as a war strategy. Are these aliens coming back to check on their deployment?
The Flatwoods Monster seemingly crashed into Earth by accident. Witnesses remember watching a bright light fly through the sky before a loud bang and flames. Nearby residents went to see the crash and couldn’t believe what they found.
An alien, standing over 10 feet tall and 4 feet wide, emerged from the smoke. It had a red head with large green-orange eyes. The Flatwoods Monster looked like a reptilian creature and wore a robotic suit that formed a spade behind its head.
Luckily for the residents that discovered this cryptid, the encounter wasn’t dangerous. The Flatwoods Monster left the scene, only to be spotted the day after. A couple’s car suddenly stopped working, and the cryptid emerged from the woods. Once again, it fled the scene without inflicting any harm on anyone, almost as if it is more curious and vengeful. If this creature has the ability to mess with electronics, it could be attempting to build a ship to leave our planet.
Mothman isn’t your typical alien suspect, but some theories suggest the cryptid could be extraterrestrial. This bipedal humanoid has large wings and glowing red eyes, to go along with its wings that help it to fly over 100 miles per hour. Mothman has been said to attack cars, utilizing its razor-sharp claws to damage the metal.
As if that isn’t bad enough, this terrifying creature lives in an abandoned World War II munitions plant known as the “TNT” area. While this cryptid calls Point Pleasant in West Virginia home, it has been seen traveling to New York, Minnesota, Russia, Chicago and many more places.
Certain people insist Mothman is a bad omen. Wherever it travels, disaster is sure to follow. There was an uptick in Mothman sightings before the Silver Bridge Collapse in 1967. This cryptid has also been spotted prior to a major bridge collapsing in Minnesota, the Russian apartment bombings, and even the nuclear plant explosion in Chernobyl.
Are aliens responsible for wreaking havoc on our planet with Mothman’s help?
Indrid Cold, also known as the Smiling Man, is a shapeshifting alien that has been connected with the Men In Black. When first sighted, it had a green reflective suit on with a black belt. It also had a darker skin tone and small, wide-set eyes. This cryptid lacked ears, hair, and a nose.
The second encounter, however, was completely different. Indrid Cold wore a blue reflective suit, similar to the first sighting. Aside from the suit, this cryptid looked like a normal human being. It had the same darker skin tone but with ears, slick black hair, and a nose. It’s referred to as the Smiling Man because of the wide grin it gives anyone that looks its way.
Indrid Cold only needed to see humans once before being able to shapeshift into one. This cryptid isn’t alone, either. There are two other “grinning men” known as Demo Hassan and Karl Ardo. How many more exist? The world has no idea.
The scariest part of creatures like Indrid Cold is that they could be secretly living among us.
There are a number of other alien-like cryptids, such as the Fresno Nightcrawlers, Hopkinsville Goblins, Dover Demon, and even Alien Bigfoot. Imagine all of the evidence and UFO sightings the Pentagon decided not to release.
