Incredible leaked night vision footage has captured four UFOs, including one shaped like a pyramid, hovering above a US Navy destroyer.
The Pentagon has confirmed the authenticity of a video clip showing four unidentified flying objects, including one shaped like a pyramid, hovering above a US Navy destroyer at sea.
Incredible footage from a night vision camera shows the encounter captured by a seaman on board the USS Russell, which most recently has been on deployment with the 7th Fleet in the Philippines Sea.
Shot by a night vision camera, the 18-second clip appears to show several mysterious flashing objects in the skies above the destroyer.
Three faint orbs can be seen before the camera pans to a fourth flashing object, zooming in to reveal its clear triangular shape.
The date and location of the incident hasn’t been confirmed.
The film was leaked to Jeremy Corbell, a film director in the United States who made the documentary Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers, and George Knapp, a Las Vegas KLAS TV news anchor.
Mr Corbell said he has been able to verify the film‘s authenticity after gaining information from an intelligence briefing from the Pentagon into Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP).
Pentagon officials also separately confirmed the images were taken by US Navy personnel – but did not comment on the nature of the footage.
Mr Corbell also shared three photos taken by another US Navy vessel, the USS Omaha combat ship, of an unidentified “spherical” craft.
“It is noted that the ‘spherical’ craft was suspected to be a trans-medium vehicle and was observed descending into the water without destruction,” he told The Sun.
“The craft could not be found upon entry to the water and a submarine was used in the search.”
In a third incident, images of which were also leaked, two crew on board an FA-18 fighter jet somewhere in the Pacific spotted a UFO from the cockpit.
Mr Corbell said they took “personal mobile phone images of UAPs” of the encounter, which occurred in mid-2019.
“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.”
A Pentagon spokesperson told The Sun: “I can confirm that the referenced photos and videos were taken by Navy personnel
“As we have said before, to maintain operations security and to avoid disclosing information that may be useful to potential adversaries, (the Department of Defence) does not discuss publicly the details of either the observations or the examinations of reported incursions into our training ranges or designated airspace, including those incursions initially designated as UAP.”
It’s not the first time the Pentagon has confirmed the authenticity of footage showing UFOs shot by members of the military.
Last year, it formally released to the public three videos showing pilots’ encounters with unexplained objects.
The clips showed three separate incidents involving “unidentified aerial phenomena,” one from November 2004 and two from January 2015.
“DOD is releasing the videos in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos,” a spokesperson said at the time.
“The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterised as ‘unidentified’.”
Commander David Fravor, a former US Navy pilot, witnessed the events of November 10, 2004 from the cockpit of a fighter jet.
“This is not like, we saw it and it was gone, or I saw lights in the sky and it‘s gone – we watched this thing on a crystal clear day with four trained observers,” he said.
“We see this little white Tic Tac because we’re about 20 feet above it and its going north, south, north, south, and it‘s abrupt”.
