The videos, one taken in November 2004 and the other two in January 2015, have been circulating in the public domain after unauthorized releases in 2007 and 2017.

The short videos, each showing an unidentified flying object (UFO), are known as FLIR, GOFAST and GIMBAL.

“DOD is releasing the videos in order 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,” the defense ministry said in a statement.

The US Navy previously acknowledged that these videos circulating in the public domain were indeed navy 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 released videos can be found at the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) website.
