Pentagon confirms legitimacy of Navy pilot's unidentified aerial phenomena video

The Pentagon on Thursday confirmed that a leaked video showing an unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) was real, CNN reports.

The video in question was filmed in night vision and showed a triangle-shaped object flying through the sky.

Pentagon officials confirmed to the news outlet that the footage was taken by Navy personnel.

The imagery will be deciphered as part of "ongoing investigations" into UAPs, according to CNN.

Last August, the Pentagon launched a task force to further look into UAPs under Deputy Secretary of Defense David Norquist.

"The mission of the task force is to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security," the Department of Defense wrote in a statement announcing its creation. 

"The Department of Defense and the military departments take any incursions by unauthorized aircraft into our training ranges or designated airspace very seriously and examine each report."
