The footage was posted online by To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, a private scientific research group that aims to “help push science, technology, and ultimately humanity forward.”
It is not the first time UFO footage recorded by the military has been declassified.
The New York Times published videos in December of declassified UFO flights recorded by the U.S. military. The Times later reported that the Department of Defense fielded a program that investigated the incidents, but that it was terminated in …read more
