Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) have been a subject of discussion for the longest time. The biggest discussion obviously has been their authenticity. Over a long period of time, people have claimed to have sighted such objects and claimed that they were alien spacecraft.

Now, before yesterday no sane mind would put any stock into it. But what has happened in the last 24 hours is that the US Navy has made similar claims regarding their authenticity.

According to reports, the US Navy 'confirmed' the authenticity of three videos about UFO sightings and said that these videos should have never been made public.

Joseph Gradisher, the spokesperson for the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare, told Black Vault:

The Navy designates the objects contained in these videos as unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP).

He added:

The military goes with the term UAPs instead of UFOs as UAP "provides the basic descriptor for the sightings/observations of unauthorized/unidentified aircraft/objects that have been observed entering/operating in the airspace of various military-controlled training ranges.

In one of the released videos, pilots can be heard talking about spotting an object flying off the East Coast in 2015. In fact, one of the pilots can be heard saying in the video 'Wow! What is that, man? Look at that flying'.

This is the first time the US Navy has 'confirmed' such an incident with an officital statement. Mind you though, the scientific community gets to have the final say on the matter. So if you had your hopes high about Star-Lord flying with a racoon and a talking tree, we would suggest that you hold your horses.
