|The Pentagon clarifies the truth about unidentified flying objects... and an inexplicable video|
On Tuesday, the Pentagon released declassified photos and videos of UFOs during a congressional hearing, and provided an explanation for some of them.
In a short, shaky video clip, a small object spotted by a military pilot appeared. The images also revealed three glowing triangles that appeared at night at different times.
The Pentagon clarifies the truth about unidentified flying objects... and an inexplicable video
Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott W. Bray, who showed the videos and photos, said the video and image of the glowing triangles remained unexplained for some time, but the latter were eventually identified as drones, according to Fox News.
But Bray confirmed that the military could not identify the unidentified object in the first video.

- He emphasized that many unknown atmospheric phenomena, called "unidentified flying objects", contained a limited amount of high-quality data, which hampers the ability to draw firm conclusions about their nature and purpose.
How did we get here?
Bray noted that there were at least 11 "imminent incidents" among US military aircraft.
This session, which was broadcast live on YouTube, is the first in more than 50 years on the phenomenon of "unidentified flying objects", specifically since 1969, according to the American radio station "NPR".
- Congress has mandated the Pentagon to regularly inform it of this phenomenon, and last year the Office of the Director of National Intelligence issued a report containing 144 sightings of flying objects.
Investigators found no links outside the ground planes or other devices flying at speeds or seemingly obscure paths, but they highlighted the need to collect better data about what Democrats and Republicans are increasingly seen as a source of concern for national security.
- In all views that have been investigated with the exception of one, there was little information for investigators to characterize the nature of accidents on a large scale, according to the network reported "PBS".
Senator Marco Rubio said in a statement at the time: "This report is an important first step to classify these incidents, but it is just the first step."
- Wrote RUBIO: "the Ministry of Defense and the intelligence community a lot of work before we can understand whether these air threats represent a serious source of concern for national security."
Lawmakers warn that these weather phenomena is known may pose a serious threat to national security.
- Said Democratic Rep. Andre Carson of Indiana and Chairman of the Sub-Department of the Intelligence Committee, said that the non-specific weather phenomena pose a potential threat to national security, and must be dealt with.
The report of US intelligence, released in June last, monitoring 144 cases of phenomena unknown since 2004, by multiple sensors, including the "radar, infrared, electro-optical, and devices exploration and monitoring of weapons, visual observation."
Said Rep. Rick Crawford: "the intelligence service has a duty to serious about taxpayers to prevent potential adversaries such as China and Russia from our surprise new technologies unexpected. The intelligence community must be balanced between the treatment of known threats to our nation's security, and the prevention of technical surprise."
