The Pentagon has confirmed that images and footage of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) released to the public last month were taken by U.S. Navy personnel, and are currently under investigation by its UAP Task Force.
It comes after documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell shared media on YouTube, writing that the U.S. Navy “photographed and filmed ‘pyramid’ shaped UFOs and ‘spherical’ advanced transmedium vehicles.”
In one clip, footage of what the Pentagon calls a “transmedium vehicle” appears to hover from side to side, before dipping below sea level.
“This footage was filmed in the CIC (Combat Information Center) of the USS Omaha on July 15th 2019 in a warning area off San Diego,” Corbell wrote. “This footage depicts a UAP event series that reached a crescendo with one of the unknown targets entering the water. No wreckage found. None of the unknown craft were recovered.”
Confirming the authenticity of the clip, Susan Gough, a Pentagon spokesperson, told the Daily Caller that it was captured by U.S. Navy personnel.
“I can confirm that the video was taken by Navy personnel, and that the UAPTF included it in their ongoing examinations.”
Corbell said intelligence reports note that the “spherical” craft could not be found upon entry to the water, and that a submarine was used in the search but nothing was recovered.
The Pentagon’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, which was established last year, is scheduled to release a report on its findings in June. The countdown was triggered by the passing of the December 2020 stimulus bill.
The Pentagon said the task force was established “to improve its understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins of UAPs.”
“The mission of the task force is to detect, analyze, and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security,” it said.
