Tom Delonge has appeared in a live-stream broadcast to discuss an incident involving a UFO, alongside a number of 'Department of Defence insiders'.

You can watch the event as it happened here:

To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science, of which Tom is CEO, is seeking to serve the public good through exploring 'the outer edges of science and the understanding of phenomena'.

The talk involved figures such as Chris Mellon (FMR Deputy Asst Secretary of Defense for Intelligence) Jim Semivan (FMR Sr. Intelligence Service, CIA's Directorate of Operations) and Dr. Hal Puthoff (Director of DOD/CIA/DIA Scientific Research Programs).

The former Blink-182 frontman is an avid believer in extraterrestrial life (as evidenced by songs like 'Aliens Exist'), leading to ridicule from many people. Nevertheless, he still believes we're not alone.

Here's how Twitter reacted to the bizarre appearance:

The news comes after he made an announcement on Instagram yesterday ahead of today's 'big reveal'.

The picture read: "Inside knowledge about unidentified aerial phenomenon could lead to world-changing technology", and was accompanied by a lengthy caption.

It read: "Thank you all for waiting for an announcement that is literally two years in the making.

"I have assembled a team of insiders that I believe can possibly change the world. All are current consultants to the US Gov on National Security Matters, and some literally left days ago from the Department of Defence to join me in this initiative.

"Fmr. High Ranking Government Officials and Senior Intelligence Officers from CIA, DOD, and also a Chief Engineer (Director of Advanced Programs) from Lockheed Martin's the Skunk Works have come together aiming to BUILD A REVOLUTIONARY TECHNOLOGY that can change life as we know it (we will be showing a concept of the spacecraft tomorrow), research the unknown and finally tell the 'story of the millennia' through Feature Films.

"NO ONE GOVERNMENT, INDIVIDUAL OR INSTITUTION should own what can truthfully help the world. We all can own it together. To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science is allowing a group of those who are interested to join us on day one."
