Tom Delonge, former Blink-182 guitarist and source of mid-2000's teenage angst, is spacing out. To the Stars Academy of the Arts and Sciences—which Delonge helped found—shared a recently declassified military video, which they claim indicates the existence of aliens. The video was taken by a Navy fighter jet, and pilots are heard wondering what the speeding white dot they spotted over the ocean could possibly be.
While Delonge is not crying "Aliens!" just yet, he and To the Stars, as well as some politicians like former Defense Secretary Chris Mellon, are pressuring the government to seek more answers and attempting to build credibility of UFO investigations in the public eye.
In an 0p-ed for the Washington Post, Mellon mused that UFO's like the one seen in the declassified video could be evidence of covert technological advances by countries like China or Russia, yet he does not dismiss the possibility of extraterrestrial beings.

Who knows what perils we may avoid or opportunities we might identify if we follow the data?" pic.twitter.com/YIncDbV6Go— To The Stars Academy (@TTSAcademy) March 9, 2018
Twitter began looking to the stars.
Maybe Tom Delonge is on to something with this whole aliens/UFO thing... but I don't think it'll end well— CPT Schmidt (@patty_mcdee) March 13, 2018
That Tom Delonge has had contact with aliens, and that Avril Lavigne died and was replaced with a lizard person— Matthew Lee Gill (@mattleegill) March 12, 2018
some people want to be famous for money or social clout (totally bad reason) whereas *I* would want to be famous so I could befriend tom delonge and then find out all the alien secrets (totally excellent reason)— Mia 🍑🍯 (@hikikohoney) March 9, 2018
tom delonge presents warped tour but every band only plays renditions of aliens exist & all the booths either alien truthers or area 51 tours— e (@qvchater) March 2, 2018
Then again, there were also skeptics in the midst.
I just discovered Joe Rogan's talk with Tom Delonge about UFOs and alien life— SkythaGuy:O (@SkythaGuyo) March 1, 2018
It's absolutely amazing how ridiculous this guy is
If I start reading Tom Delonge’s novels which are barely concealed ‘Alien’s exist and they just might destroy us’ propaganda will it become problematic to my understanding of the world?— Andrew Marsh (@appleshampoo182) February 28, 2018
This doesnt even make sense. Tom Delonge is a conspiracy theorist who says he is part of a secret society to disclose aliens.— アダム (Adam) (@ximxiti) February 28, 2018
Actually...a lot of skeptics.
I guess Delonge will have to rely on actual aliens to ship his UFO merchandise now.— Aldea Shepard (@aldea_shepard) February 28, 2018
If Tom DeLonge can believe in aliens then you can make it through this week.— Peter Gubbe (@EnFuegoInc) February 28, 2018
I wish I could believe in anything as much as tom delonge believes in aliens— Jackson Frons (@fronssss) March 6, 2018
Delonge is continuing to press for more information on these UFO's, and we're sure the research of To The Stars won't be letting up soon either. Could proof of extraterrestrial life be on the horizon? Don't blink.
