A video clip from the Department of Defense (DoD) showed US Navy pilots’ sighting of an unidentified flying object (UFO) in the East Coast of the United States in 2015.

According to Navy Times, the video titled GO FAST was released online on Friday, March 9, by ‘To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science (TTSA)’, a private scientific research and media group.

The group is led by Hal Puthoff, a NASA and U.S. Department of Defense adviser; and James Semivan, a former Central Intelligence Agency official.

“GO FAST is an authentic DoD video that captures the high-speed flight of an unidentified aircraft at low altitudes,” the TTSA said in a statement after the release of the video clip.

The video of the UFO was recorded by the Advanced Targeting Forward-Looking Infrared (ATFLIR) a multi-sensor, electro-optical targeting pod that was mounted underneath a US Navy F/A-18 jet.

The ATFLIR was equipped with a camera with a laser rangefinder and a laser-spot tracker.

One of the pilots tried two times to lock onto the UFO that was flying very fast, but failed. He succeeded on his third try. They were heard speaking out their excitement at what they are seeing.

“Whoa! Got it. Woohoo. What the (expletive) is that thing?” one of the pilots exclaimed.

“Did you box a moving target?” asked the other pilot.

“No, it’s in autotrack,” the first pilot answered.

“Wow, what is that man? Look at that flying,” the pilot was heard saying.

The DoD did not comment on the declassified video.
