KEY POINTS

  • Pentagon confirmed that the leaked footage featuring several UFOs was taken by the U.S. Navy 
  • Jeremy Corbell shared photos of the "spherical craft" on social media after verifying their authenticity
  • Pentagon already announced that it will be releasing a detailed report on UFO sightings this year

The footage of several mysterious flying objects in the sky was captured by a U.S. Navy Destroyer using night vision cameras, Pentagon has admitted.

The video caught a lot of attention because of its bizarre content. The green-tinged clip first features three faint orbs hovering in the sky. A fourth object is also captured by the camera. When zoomed in, the triangular shape of the object is revealed.

The 18-second clip, which was recorded by staff aboard the USS Russell, was leaked to filmmaker Jeremy Corbell, who made the documentary “Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers,” and KLAS TV news director George Knapp, according to The Sun.

Corbell was able to verify the footage's authenticity after procuring information from an intelligence briefing in Pentagon that took place on May 1, 2020. In the briefing, officials confirmed that the footage was indeed shot by the Navy, New York Post reported.

“George Knapp and I were able to verify the materials you are about to consider,” Corbell told the Sun. “I can confirm their authenticity, as well as the narrative supplied to me when they were presented.”

Corbell also shared three images captured by the USS Omaha of a UFO that was spherical. “It is noted that the ‘spherical’ craft was suspected to be a trans medium vehicle and was observed descending into the water without destruction,” Corbell said.

“It is noted that the ‘spherical’ craft could not be found upon entry to the water — and that a submarine was used in the search,” the filmmaker added.

Moreover, Corbell and Knapp were able to receive information about a third sighting that occurred on March 4, 2019. The sighting was allegedly witnessed by a F/A-18 pilot and his weapons systems officer.

“These are authentic photos and video from actual military encounters with UFOs, generated to educate high-level intelligence officers within our military on the nature and presentation of the UAP-UFO phenomenon,” he said.

“It is my hope that these materials will be representative of a unique moment in modern history; a possible turning point towards the rational and transparent approach of investigating and exploring the mystery of the UFO phenomenon,” Corbell added.

Despite confirming that the leaked footage was taken by U.S. Navy personnel, Pentagon officials have refused to comment on the nature of the video as well as its content.

In an announcement made in March, Pentagon said it will be releasing a detailed report on UFO sightings from all over the world, which will include incident reports that are hard to explain.
