The US Navy has finally acknowledged footage purported to show UFOs hurtling through the air.
The objects seen in three clips of declassified military footage are "unidentified aerial phenomena," Navy spokesperson Joe Gradisher confirmed to CNN.
The term UFOs, which stands for "unidentified flying objects," is now used less frequently by officials, who have instead adopted the term "unidentified aerial phenomena," or UAP.
Gradisher also said the videos were never cleared for public release. "The Navy has not released the videos to the general public," he said.
