On Monday, Elizondo also noted "eerie similarities" between the new video and the ones released a year ago, including the location in US airspace, the presence of US Navy pilots, the "Tic Tac" shape of the object and other signatures he said the videos shared in common.

"What the f-- is that thing?" one pilot can be heard saying in the video. One of the pilots involved in the incident, retired Commander David Fravor, told CNN that he saw what looked like a "40-foot-long Tic Tac" maneuvering rapidly and changing its direction.

The group that posted the video hopes its release sparks more debate about UFOs.

The Pentagon confirmed the existence of the program, funded and activated thanks in large part to former U.S. Sen Harry Reid, D-Nevada, according to similar reports from the New York Times and Politico.

To The Stars said it was a Department of Defense video, captured from an F/A-18 Super Hornet jet with a Raytheon-developed infrared system.

"It is time to set aside taboos regarding "UFOs" and instead listen to our pilots and radar operators".

The object continues at a fast rate, and the pilots appear to be amazed. An alleged military video of an unidentified aircraft was released Friday.

A year ago in a report by the New York Times, Pentagon acknowledged they shelved a program in 2012 that was devoted to identifying unknown space objects claiming there "were other, higher priority issues" that deserved funding.

"Reports from different services and agencies remain largely ignored and unevaluated inside their respective bureaucratic stovepipes".

Chris Mellon, TTSA adviser and former deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence under presidents Clinton and George W. Bush, criticized the national security agencies for not researching what is behind the unusual objects in the sky, ABC News reported.

"There is no Pentagon process for synthesizing all the observations the military is making".

However, he wrote that sightings of unusual and mysterious objects are not new to officials in the defense department and intelligence agencies but "nobody wants to be 'the alien guy in the national security bureaucracy; nobody wants to be ridiculed or sidelined for drawing attention to the issue". "This is true up and down the chain of command, and it is a serious and recurring impediment to progress", he said. "The current approach is equivalent to having the Army conduct a submarine search without the Navy", Mellon said in an op-ed for The Washington Post.

Mellon argues that the issue needs to be taken seriously, and that a concerted effort that cuts through the "quarrelsome national security bureaucracies" could find realistic explanations for the incidents, and not rule out alien life as purely fictional.

"Internationally, we are the most backward country in the world on this issue", Bigelow told the New York Times.

"They are proactive and willing to discuss this topic, rather than being held back by a juvenile taboo", he said.
