While we know and love Tom DeLonge for gracing us with his musical gift in blink-182 and Angels & Airwaves, we know he has another passion — space. 

He’s done a lot of work with his organization To the Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences, including previously releasing three videos that potentially show UFOs.

Now, the Navy is actually acknowledging that those clips do indeed show objects in the sky that are a total mystery. 

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”. 

Now, 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, nor released any hypothesis or conclusions, in regard to the objects contained in the referenced videos,” Gradisher said. 

DeLonge is the star and executive producer of a show on History called Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation, so he definitely has a lot of knowledge about the subject of extraterrestrial life. 

The recognition from the Navy is huge for DeLonge and his team’s work in the field. To celebrate, let’s jam out to “Aliens Exist” because it’s definitely the only appropriate song to listen to right now. 

Speaking of that track, DeLonge is performing the blink-182 throwback on his tour with Angels & Airwaves, which definitely put us in our feels. You can see a video of that below.
