Pentagon Confirms Pyramid-Shaped UFO
The Pentagon has acknowledged the authenticity of a series of recently surfaced photographs and videos of unidentified flying objects captured by the US Navy.
While many people refer to unexplained sightings as UFOs, the more modern word used in defence circles is “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” (UAPs) – and the intelligence community takes them very seriously.
Although UFOs are a taboo topic, synonymous with conspiracy theories and intertwined with pop culture, the fact remains that UAPs, also known as Anomalous Aerial Vehicles (AAVs), are very real sightings of phenomena that neither the military nor scientific observers can easily classify.
The newly discovered sightings include video of a mysterious “pyramid-shaped” craft travelling through the sky, as well as photographs of three other strange artefacts, one of which appears to have been posted online last year.
Although no one knows for sure what these mysterious visions are, the Pentagon has reported that the photographs and videos of UAPs captured by the US Navy are true.
“I can confirm that the related photographs and videos were taken by Navy staff,” Pentagon spokesperson Susan Gough said in a statement sent to a number of news organisations.
“These events have been included in the ongoing investigations of the UAPTF [Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force].”
DOD is Quite
Although the Pentagon confirms the imagery’s authenticity, the US Department of Defense (DOD) has remained tight-lipped on what, if anything, their inquiries into these unusual artefacts have turned up.
“As we have previously said, DOD does not discuss publicly the specifics of either the findings or the inspections of confirmed incursions into our training ranges or specified airspace, including those incursions initially designated as UAP, to maintain operations protection and to avoid revealing knowledge that may be useful to potential adversaries,” Gough said.
More information about the specifics of these sightings can be disclosed thanks to Corbell and Knapp’s inquiries, including information provided in a series of confidential intelligence briefings by the UAPTF in May 2020 to educate Defense personnel on UFO/UAP matters.
What is in the Video?
One confirmed sighting is described in the briefings as a “pyramid-shaped” (Corbell’s term) craft that was filmed by crew members of the USS Russell off the coast of San Diego in July 2019.
Although video of the incident only clearly shows one such triangular-looking object hovering about 210 metres (700 feet) over the ship, an account of the incident claims three unidentified vehicles flew in a swarm over the ship.
A spherical vehicle of some sort was seen flying into the ocean and disappearing in the water by crew onboard the USS Omaha in another sighting. The craft was believed to have sunk, according to the UAPTF documentation, but a submarine search of the area later found no debris.
Three UAPs were seen near Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia, according to a series of other sightings captured on the same day in March 2019 by an F-18 weapon systems officer using his iPhone’s camera.
The artefacts have been dubbed the ‘Sphere,’ the ‘Acorn,’ and the ‘Metallic Blimp,’ and while some have speculated that they may be weather balloons or foreign surveillance drones, they remain unidentified and are still considered UAPs as far as we know.
That isn’t what the Pentagon confirms. When asked if these UAPs were still classified as unidentified by intelligence website The Black Vault, Gough only replied, “I have nothing more for you than what I got.”
Somethings are Unexplained
While several concerns remain regarding these strange unexplained events, the recently leaked information at least adds to the proof that the Department of Defense continues to study and treat UAPs as a serious issue.
Corbell and others in the intelligence community hope that by sharing this knowledge, fair and open inquiries into these enigmatic artefacts can be aided.
“Recent UAP contacts have been placed in our direction with intent,” a senior intelligence officer familiar with the briefings told Corbell. “They should be looked upon as advantageous opportunities for future study.”
“With every incursion, overflight, and possible midair – it’s never been more important to investigate this UAP phenomenon and deglamorize the UFO stigma among the ranks.”
