If you’re a fan of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and alien visitation, this is manna from heaven.
Three videos showing U.S. Navy pilots encountering mysterious, fast-moving objects emerged in 2017 and 2018. The videos were made public due to reporting by The New York Times and efforts by To The Stars Academy, a research, development and media center for cutting-edge science and technology.
One of the UAP videos was taken in November 2004, and the other two were shot in January 2015. All were captured by Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet jets with pilots utilizing Forward-Looking Infrared (FLIR) technology, hardware that detects heat and creates images.
The three released UAP videos are called “Gimbal,” “GoFast” and “FLIR1” (also known as the “Tic Tac” video).
