DeLonge stepped away from music back in 2015 to found the To The Stars Academy – an organisation for the study of UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Seeming like a joke at the time, DeLonge has had the last laugh as the the US Navy has conceded that objects in footage released by his Academy, does fact put the “U” in UFO.
This information is especially significant because up until now, the Navy has always been able to identify unknown objects in the sky as things like weather balloons or drones. This footage, however, the Navy is yet to make a conclusion as to what the objects are and are specifically using the term “Unidentified Ariel Phenomena”.
“That the Navy is using the term ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’ shows that they have broadened what is expected to be reported by U.S. fighter pilots to investigate anything unknown in their airspace that in the past has been connected with a stigma,” Roger Glassel, a Swedish writer and UFO specialist, told Motherboard.
The clips were shot in 2004 and 2015. One shows US Navy pilots chancing upon an unknown aircraft in San Diego, while the other two capture an unusual rotating object flying over water. DeLonge made made the videos public through his To The Stars Academy in 2017 and 2018.
If only DeLonge had given us some sort of clue to aliens existing earlier.
Keep your eyes peeled for when Tom Delonge’s History Channel show about UFOs arrives shortly.
