In case you were too busy Christmas shopping over the weekend, you may have missed the news — the U.S. government acknowledged a secret UFO investigation and it looks like E.T. has been here quite some time.
Both the New York Times and Washington Post reported about the release of the real-life X-Files, some regarding military personnel flying next to objects that “accelerated like nothing I’ve ever seen.”
The captivating video was released as well. It’s from a US fighter jet’s encounter with one of the documented unknown flying objects from 2004. The video was released by the US Department of Defense Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) and captured from an F/A-18 Super Hornet.
You can hear the pilots exclaim, “It is [expletive] goin on, bro,” and “There’s a whole fleet of them.”
There’s a more detailed version of the video here that’s already nearing one million views in one day.
The government didn’t even acknowledge AATIP existed until this weekend. It was shut down in 2012 because, according to reports, “there were other, higher priority issues that merited funding.”
