A spokesperson for the Department of Defense has issued a statement regarding the footage that emerged earlier this month.
The intriguing video, which shows a (supposedly cloaked) jellyfish-shaped object moving over a US military base, was captured on thermal imaging camera.

It gained traction when UFO investigator Jeremy Corbell, who maintained that someone in the military had taken a great risk to get him the footage, shared it online earlier this month.

"It goes over a body of water," he said at the time.

"I'm told it stops on a dime, descends stiff into the water and for 17 minutes nothing. And boom! This thing comes out of the water and shoots off at 45 degrees."

Now, in a further development to the story, a spokesperson for the Department of Defense - Sue Gough - has come forward to issue an official statement in response to questions regarding the video.

"[We] do not comment on the authenticity of alleged DoD material that may have been leaked," she said.
"DoD takes public interest in unidentified anomalous phenomena seriously and is committed to openness and accountability to the American people."

"This commitment must be balanced with the department's obligation to protect sensitive information, sources, and methods."

The statement has been hailed as a possible sign that the video may be authentic.

"I must say it's very revealing for what it doesn't say," said NewsNation special correspondent Ross Coulthart. "It doesn't reveal a categorical denial."

"It's the last resort of governments and intelligence services when they don't want to answer a question."

"Essentially, it's a neither confirm nor deny."

Cant find the clip now, but it was a military guy that said he used the same thermal as in the video, and that is exactly how "birthday balloons" looks as they drift with the wind. The reason they fade in and out is because of the sun reflecting on the balloons surface relative to the thermal.
