Former President Barack Obama admitted Monday that unidentified flying objects (UFOs) are real.
Appearing on CBS' "The Late Late Show with James Corden," Obama responded to the growing focus on the subject of UFOs.
"What is true, and I'm actually being serious here, is that there is footage and records of objects in the skies that we don't know exactly what they are," he said
"We can't explain how they move, their trajectory,"
he said. "They did not have an easily explainable pattern. And so I think that people still take seriously, trying to investigate and figure out what that is."
"But I have nothing to report to you today,"
Obama also joked about his experience coming into office and asking about the existence of aliens.
"When it comes to aliens, there are some things I just can't tell you on air,"
Obama told Corden.
"Look, the truth is that when I came into office, I asked,"
Obama continued. "I was like, 'All right, is there the lab somewhere where we're keeping the alien specimens and spaceships?'"
"They did a little bit of research ... and the answer was, 'No,'"
Obama also joked that Reggie Watts — the show's bandleader — might himself be an alien.
"When he asks all these questions, he's deflecting,"
Obama quipped, asking, "Do we know what he looks like behind those glasses?"
Obama's comments come during a week when public interest and speculation regarding UFOs has reached a fever pitch. Just this week, leaked footage from the U.S. Navy appeared to show an unidentified flying object (UFO) flying erratically in California, before pitching suddenly downwards and beneath the surface of the ocean below.
"A recently leaked video captured by the U.S. Navy shows an unidentified flying object off the coast of San Diego moving across the sky before suddenly disappearing into the water," reported
The Hill. "The video obtained by documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell was filmed in the Combat Information Center of the combat ship the USS Omaha on July 15, 2019."
"The US Navy photographed & filmed 'spherical' shaped UFOs & advanced transmedium vehicles; here is some of that footage,"
tweeted Corbell. "Filmed in the Combat Information Center of the USS Omaha / July 15th 2019 / warning area off San Diego @ 11pm PST. No wreckage found. No craft were recovered."
"This footage is unclassified. Still images of this footage were included in the May 1st, 2020 UAPTF intelligence briefing that I have previously reported on,"
Corbell added, directing interested readers to his other platforms for further information.
onlookers are heard to say as the craft disappeared beneath the surface of the ocean.
According to NBC News
, "The Defense Department confirmed that the clip was recorded by Navy personnel and said it will be reviewed by the Pentagon's Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, a panel established last year to 'gain insight' into the 'nature and origins' of such objects."
