While the Department of Defense has yet to comment on the release of this alien UFO sighting, the fact that it comes from a generally reliable source gives credence to the fact that I may in fact be a legitimate sighting.

There is reportedly a negative stigma associated with anyone who pursues the idea that the UFOs are extraterrestrial life visiting earth and believers tend to attribute the slow progress on identifying the aircraft on lack of interest from superiors.

A new purported military video of an unidentified aircraft has been made public, following the Pentagon's acknowledgment a year ago that it had shelved an initiative devoted to identifying unknown objects in aerospace.

The footage was recorded in 2015 on a Raytheon ATFLIR pod, a targeting pod mounted underneath aircraft that's equipped with a camera with a laser rangefinder and a laser-spot tracker.

To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science reports in a news release that they were the first to receive the video detailing an F/A-18E Super Hornet fighter jet's encounter with the UFO.

"Whoa! Got it!" one of the pilots, yells after getting a lock.

As the UFO continues on its flight path, one of the pilot makes a note of their speed and direction - "They are all going against the wind".

"This is a f-- drone bro", one pilot says.

The objects, which the pilots initially suspected as being drones of some sort, appear to hover briefly before zipping away at speeds that elicit gasps from the pilots, the Washington Post reported. "Its rotating!" the other pilot says. "Look at that flying!".

One of the pilots from the declassified videos published by The Times told ABC that he thought the aircraft he saw was "not from this world".

"It could be anything, so I wouldn't rule anything out, and that's why I think we need to look at it", Elizondo said.

To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science - an organization leading on the issue that includes a former head of the now-defunct Pentagon program and was co-founded by former Blink182 musician Tom DeLonge - released the video titled "GO FAST" on Friday.

In his resignation letter, Elizondo said the government should start taking "the many accounts from the Navy and other services of unusual aerial systems interfering with military weapon platforms and displaying beyond-next-generation capabilities" more seriously.

Thomas Crosson, a spokesperson with the Pentagon, told the Times at the time in an email that the program ended due to "higher priority" issues that needed additional funding.

"The DoD takes seriously all threats and potential threats to our people, our assets, and our mission and takes action whenever credible information is developed".

Christopher Mellon, a former deputy assistant security of defense for the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations, claims that the government needs to thoroughly investigate nationwide reports of flying unidentified objects, given the sheer quantity in recent years.
