A UFO was reportedly caught on video passing by the Navy’s Blue Angels during an air show on Long Island over Memorial Day weekend, NY Post reported.

Video footage: UFO spotted racing Blue Angels Super Hornet at Jones Beach Air Show

The unusual incident occurred as the small sphere zoomed past the Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet over Jones Beach, as captured in peculiar footage obtained by TMZ.

The TMZ video clip is super brief, lasting just a blink. But we can see a glimpse of an unknown object zooming through a crystal-clear sky during a Blue Angels show in Long Island last Friday. This thing moves crazy fast, keeping up with one of the Blue Angels’ super hornet jets, which is seriously impressive.

If you’re not familiar, the Blue Angels are the U.S. Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron, known for their speed. Yet, this object is even faster! It’s only visible for a split second in the video. You can see the UFO gliding right in front of the jet in slow motion before disappearing from view.

Reportedly, the object was flying at an altitude of approximately 36,500 to 41,000 feet, as per a report submitted to the National UFO Reporting Center.

The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) continues to baffle experts due to its astonishing speed and the absence of any visible trail as it streaked ahead.

UAP is the updated term adopted by government agencies and officials, replacing the previously used term “unidentified flying objects” (UFOs).
