Just to add more salt to our 2020 wounds, The Pentagon has decided to release three videos of "unidentified aerial phenomena" onto the world, which were recorded by US Navy pilots.

The Pentagon UFO footage, recorded by infrared cameras, sees a series of unidentified flying objects recorded by pilots who have no choice but to look on in awe at the incredible movement of the objects. However, don't be too worried about what you are seeing, as the videos were not recorded very recently.

One of the videos dates back to 2004, while the other two were recorded in January 2015. So no, the aliens haven't started arriving this year - they've probably been here for quite some time already.

According to spokesperson Sue Gough, The Pentagon are releasing the videos now: "In order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos.

"After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena."

Senator Harry Reid, who was previously involved in a classified program looking into these happenings for The Pentagon, tweeted that the US "needs to take a serious, scientific look at this".

As the great Kent Brockman says: "I, for one, welcome our new insect alien overlords."
