THE US NAVY accidentally released a cache of unedited UFO files showing warships being swarmed by “dangerous” mysterious drones.
More than 60 pages related to the encounters were uploaded by the military with the filename “proposed redacting” – suggesting the unaltered documents were not intended for publication.
The names and contact details of those involved remain in what appear to be red-framed documents, which are to be deleted from the file.
And the documents reveal encounters with unidentified drones that flew over six warships from March to July 2019 – something that has fueled debate about UFOs in Washington DC.
UFOs — no longer commonly known as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs) — have stepped from the fringes into a major national security debate.
The files shed light on encounters believed to have taken place with unfamiliar drones rather than truly inexplicable objects – but continue to raise questions.
Mystery craft are described as at times making “dangerous” approaches to US ships, coming within just 500 feet of them.
Drones often seem to circle the ships without communication – and some of them swoop over the ships.
And there is no mention of US warships firing at the mysterious ship despite their proximity to them.
The documents indicate that some of these drones are likely data-gathering spy vehicles.
And after the files were accidentally uploaded earlier this week, they have since been deleted by the US Navy.
Website links leading to the documents now redirect to the service’s home page.
In one of the most striking encounters, the USS Bunker Hill was pursuing 11 unidentified drones.
The drones’ flight altitudes – described as “quadcopter style” – ranged from 1,400 feet to a staggering 21,000 feet.
Maps released in the files show the drones circling the warship from about 4 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The area was home to the Hong Kong-flagged bulk carrier M/V Bass Strait – which the US ship tried to contact but received no response.
It is suspected that some of the drone incidents were attempts to spy on US warships, such as one involved with the USS Paul Hamilton.
The destroyer was sailing to Long Beach when it spotted three drones flying overhead – once again with the M/V Bass Strait lurking in the area.
The USS Harpers Ferry – a DropShip – was threatened by eight unidentified drones, three of which flew overhead at about 500 feet.
Photographs included in the documents show one of the objects in the sky, while a map shows the vehicle flying over the ship’s path.
The drones created a “dangerous situation” during the encounter from 5:10 a.m. to 6:23 a.m., according to the ship’s commander.
And in another event, six objects flew in a “consistent pattern” in an event that lasted an hour and 25 minutes over the USS Zumwalt.
One of the US Navy’s most advanced destroyers, the USS Zumwalt is known for her elegant stealth design.
Sailors observed flashing red and green lights near the ship, and at one point one of the drones sped overhead.
Also included are images of green triangular shapes flying over the USS Russell.
The destroyer spotted “green, white and red” lights in the sky – with three drones.
The USS Russell changed course to pursue the drones – but eventually lost sight of the object.
And an unidentified vessel, dubbed a “pleasure ship,” was identified nearby but did not respond to attempts at communication.
US lawmakers grilled intelligence chiefs over the encounters last month when they confessed they had investigated 400 sightings and 11 near misses over the past year.
It was the first hearing of this kind in 20 years.
The intelligence chiefs tried to explain how difficult it is to track down these objects and showed congressmen two videos.
And while they didn’t mention aliens, they did admit that some of the 400 encounters they have in their books are genuinely inexplicable.
Photos of the green triangles were shown – and they are said to be unknown drones being tracked by the US Navy.
It came from a landmark Pentagon report in 2021, after three videos were leaked showing US Navy encounters with unexplained objects.
UFOs are now being discussed by former intelligence officials, ex-soldiers, lawmakers, NASA and even former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.
NASA has even revealed their own plan to study UFOs – but made it clear they didn’t explicitly link it to extraterrestrials.
Although it’s unclear what the phenomenon actually is, there seems to be something in the sky that can’t be explained.
