Were 6 UFOs spotted over warships in 2019? Pentagon confirms photos are REAL and were taken by Navy
The confirmation came days after Admiral Michael Gilday said he was clueless about the origins of the mysterious drones that chased the warships in July 2019
The Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) is in the headlines once again. The Pentagon has confirmed that a set of images and videos UFOs flying over Navy warships off the California coast in July 2019 “were taken” by branch officials.
Mystery Wire reported recently that amazing pictures have been leaked from a secret Pentagon probe of the UFOs. On April 8, the Wire said: “The UAP Task Force has been gathering evidence for a comprehensive report for Congress which is due in June that includes photographs and videos of UFO encounters with U.S. military assets, including Navy destroyers off the southern California coast.” It said the report is partly meant to educate other military and intelligence officials about the UFO mystery. The new images were picked by the Task Force and received by investigative filmmaker and Extraordinary Beliefs editor Jeremy Corbell, who confirmed their authenticity. The Wire also confirmed independently that the visual materials are included in the Task Force’s briefing presentation.
One of the images appeared to be a pyramid-shaped object while the others were believed to be drones or balloons. The Navy though has identified them as unknowns.
Pentagon spokesperson confirms about photos/videos
Pentagon spokesperson Susan Gough told the Wire on April 9: “I can confirm that the referenced photos and videos were taken by Navy personnel. The UAPTF has included these incidents in their ongoing examinations. As we have said before, to maintain operations security and to avoid disclosing information that may be useful to potential adversaries, DOD does not discuss publicly the details of either the observations or the examinations of reported incursions into our training ranges or designated airspace, including those incursions initially designated as UAP.”
The Pentagon’s confirmation came a week after Admiral Michael Gilday, the chief of naval operations, said he was clueless about the origins of the mysterious Tic Tac-shaped drones. Gilday conducted an investigation into the incident which saw a group of what some called unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) chased four US destroyers for up to 100 nautical miles off the California coast. Even flight logs showed six mystery aircraft swarming the warships near a sensitive training area at the Channel Islands at a speed of 40 mph. They also reportedly had a greater maneuverability than US military drones. Last week, when Gilday asked at a media event whether the Navy confirmed the identity of drones, Gilday said it had not.

Drones performed brazen maneuvers over Navy warships
Last month, The Drive revealed that American warships located off the coast of Los Angeles saw the mysterious drones chasing them at a high speed even in low visibility. “The drones were described as flying for prolonged periods in low-visibility conditions, and performing brazen maneuvers over the Navy warships near a sensitive military training range less than 100 miles off Los Angeles. The ensuing investigation included elements of the Navy, Coast Guard, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The incidents received major attention, including from the Chief of Naval Operations—the apex of the Navy's chain of command,” the report added.
Jeremy it looks as if the stills of the sphere plunging into the water are from a night vision video.... Have you viewed this and will we be able to view it at some point? pic.twitter.com/7dhFMJHRSd— Scott Browne (ITF) (@SBrowneITF) April 8, 2021
The Drive also got ship logbooks and internal emails from the Navy under the Freedom of Information Act besides eyewitness accounts from the staff on board to establish that the UAVs had a far greater aeronautical capacity than any previously known drone(s).
The 2019 incident has a parallel to previous UFO encounters, including the infamous case of 2004 when six Super Hornet pilots made a visual or instrument contact with a mysterious aircraft in November. Similar sightings were reported in the 1960s as well but most of the military investigations into them remain classified. Lawmakers have been asking the Pentagon to reveal its classified records about the encounters, citing national security. In January, the Congress, as part of its Covid-19 relief package, set June 1 as the deadline for the intelligence agencies and the defense department to release UFOs and unidentified aerial phenomena.
