The Pentagon released three UFO videos that came from UFO researches by former Blink 182 guitarist and Angels and Airwaves vocalist Tom DeLonge.
DeLonge co-founded To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science research company, which works with the U.S. government. The company was founded after he left Blink 182. DeLonge has a keen interest in UFOs.
TTSA released three UFO sighting clips filmed 2004 and 2015. The videos came from U.S. Navy pilots. The first one encountered an unknown aircraft over the skies of San Diego, while the other video shows an unusually spinning object over the water. The videos released by DeLonge and TTSA got millions of views.
The clips, named "GIMBAL.wmv," "FLIR.mp4," and "GOFAST.wmv," were also published by the New York Times. Because of the number of views, the government launched an investigation on the videos and labeled the unknown objects as "Unidentified Aerial Phenomena."
The Pentagon released the videos to "clear up any misconceptions" that the public might have on whether the footage was real or not, according to a statement released by spokesperson Sue Gough. The Pentagon also labeled the phenomena as "unidentified."
On Twitter, DeLonge wrote after hearing the news, "With today's events and articles on my and @TTSAcademy's efforts to get the U.S. Gov to start the grand conversation, I want to thank every share holder at To The Stars for believing in us. Next, we plan on pursuing the technology, finding more answers and telling the stories."
