The Pentagon now confirmed that the photographs were in fact taken by U.S. Navy personnel.
The short night-vision video shows a “pyramid-shaped” flying object moving at a constant speed, on it, a blinking light pulsating irregularly.
“I can confirm that the referenced photos and videos were taken by Navy personnel. The UAPTF has included these incidents in their ongoing examinations,” Susan Gough, a Pentagon Spokesperson told The Black Vault.
May 1st 2020 a classified briefing was generated about the UFO / UAP presence via the Office of Naval Intelligence. I was able to obtain information regarding these & other UAP related briefings – as well as – unclassified slides & some intriguing military captured UAP footage. pic.twitter.com/F6V9h64Qfs

“As we have said before, to maintain operations security and to avoid disclosing information that may be useful to potential adversaries, DOD 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,” she added.
She didn’t further specify if they are still “unidentified” or are used as a training of identifiable objects.
“I have nothing further for you beyond what I provided,” Gough said.
Near the Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia, another series of sightings shows three different UAPs.

They were recorded by an F-18 weapon systems officer in March 2019 using his iPhone, the apparent crafts are now known as the “Sphere,” “Acorn,” and the “Metallic Blimp.”
There is speculation about their being weather balloons or spy drones, but they are so far unidentified, and as mentioned previously, the Pentagon didn’t elucidate further.
Last year, a Pentagon spokesperson told ABC News that three UFO videos officially released by the department were “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.”
“After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena,” the DOD stated.
