The Pentagon on Monday officially released three previously leaked U.S. Navy videos showing unidentified aerial phenomena. 

Two of the videos were shot in January 2015 and the other in November 2004. 

The three videos had already come out in 2007 and 2017 via "unauthorized releases,” the department said, and the Navy had already confirmed the videos were authentic. 

A video titled "FLIR.mp4" provides only a grainy image with some sort of blob in the center of the screen.

The referenced media source is missing and needs to be re-embedded.

The Defense Department said that the official release of the footage would not compromise any information.

"After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena," the Defense Department said in a statement.

"DOD is releasing the videos in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos," the statement explains.
