Tom Delonge says he was a bit surprised by how seriously the American government took his organization To the Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences‘ previously released videos of UFOs.

TTSA released three videos in December 2017 and March 2018, as did the New York Times, that show objects in the sky that reportedly date back to the mid-2000s. They are better known as “FLIR1,” “Gimbal” and “GoFast”.

In September, Navy spokesman Joseph Gradisher has confirmed to The Black Vault that “the Navy considers the phenomena contained/depicted in those videos as unidentified”.

The term “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” is used because it provides the basic definition or observation of an object or aircraft that is unauthorized or unidentified in different military-controlled airspaces, Gradisher added.

He denied to speculate what could be seen in the video, so it’s still a mystery as to what it could be. Could it prove that maybe Aliens Exist?

“The Navy has not publicly released characterizations or descriptions,” Gradisher said. “Nor released any hypothesis or conclusions, in regard to the objects contained in the referenced videos.”

In a later interview with Rolling Stone, Delonge admitted he was surprised when the Navy took his videos seriously and identifying the objects as “unidentified aerial phenomena.”

“My reaction is kind of two-par because, on one hand, I’m over the moon, but on the other hand, I knew all along that they just weren’t saying it,” he says. “It’s a surprise to me that it actually happened. We’re all really excited, because as American citizens, we need to hold our government accountable. We need to inform them that they work for us, not the other way around. On something as important as this, it’s not a good thing to be wondering if they’ve had information like this for a long time.”

“It really kind of cedes the trust in government, which I don’t really want to have happen. Because I work with a lot of government people and they’re the most trustful people I know. So, I think this is one of those things that can really build bridges between the U.S. citizens and their government.”

Delonge says now that the government has established that they don’t know what the objects are, they can focus on figuring it out.

“I think the most significant thing was when the government said that the video contains ‘unidentified aerial phenomena,'” he states. “That is because they have ruled out all the other things that they know how to find. These systems find real planes and jets. They have high fidelity and they are the most advanced systems on earth. The pilots have been trained for many years with millions and millions of dollars to make them specifically trained observers using those systems.”

“Everyone says, ‘Well that’s just a drone or something’. I don’t think people understand that the systems and the pilots are created and educated in such a way to where they’re not guessing.”

When asked if he had ever seen anything inside the aircrafts, the Angels & Airwaves frontman said no, but that he and his team are still doing plenty of research.

“I’ve always had a lot of fun with my fans back in the day before To the Stars, just putting out things to laugh with them to make them wonder. Now that I’m running a company that has a real science division, and doing all the things that we are doing, there’s no real room to play those types of games with the audience,” he says.

“The only things I am able to prove are the things that To the Stars are doing, specifically the scientific endeavors we’re involved with, and we are in the process of all that now. We did analysis on the videos when they came out, and now we‘re doing all the analysis on the materials that we have, and we hope to be talking more about that soon.”
