THE US NAVY has inadvertently released a cache of undeciphered UFO files showing warships being shaken by mysterious “dangerous” drones.
More than 60 pages of encounters were uploaded by the military with the file name “proposed response” – indicating the unaltered documents were not publicly available.
The names and contact details of the people involved remain in the documents which appear to be red-boxed for the purpose of being removed from the file.
And documents show encounters with unidentified drones flying over six warships between March and July 2019 – something that has fueled the UFO debate in Washington DC.
UFOs – no longer known as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) – have stepped from the fringes into a major national security debate.
The files shed light on alleged encounters with unidentified drones rather than truly inexplicable objects – but continue to raise questions.
The mysterious vessel was described as sometimes making “dangerous” approaches to US ships and arriving just 500ft away from them.
The drones appeared to circle the ships with no communication – and some of them darted past the ships.
And there is no mention of US warships firing at the mysterious ship even though they are close to them.
The documents show that some of these drones are likely to be manual reconnaissance to collect data.
And after the files were accidentally uploaded earlier this week, they were deleted by the US Navy.

In one of the most striking encounters, the USS Bunker Hill tracked down 11 unidentified drones.
The drones – described as “quadcopter style” – range from a staggering 1,400ft to a staggering 21,000ft.
The maps published in the files show the drones circling the warship from about 4am to 6pm.
In the area with the Hong Kong-flagged M/V Bass Strait aircraft carrier – the US vessel attempted to contact but received no response.
It is suspected that some of the drones may be attempts to spy on US warships, such as one associated with the USS Paul Hamilton.
The destroyer was heading to Long Beach when it spotted three drones flying overhead – again with M/V Bass strait lurking in the area.
The USS Harpers Ferry – an amphibious assault ship – was threatened by eight unidentified drones, with three of them plunging over the ship at about 500 feet.
The photographs included in the document show one of the objects in the sky, while the map shows the ship cruising in its path.
The drones created a “dangerous situation,” according to the ship’s commanding officer during the encounter between 5:10 a.m. and 6:23 a.m.
And another event, saw six objects fly in a “consistent pattern” during a one-hour and 25-minute event aboard the USS Zumwalt.
The USS Zumwalt is one of the United States Navy’s most advanced destroyers, known for its sleek stealth design.
Sailors observed flashing green and red lights near the ship, and at one point one of the drones was injured in flight.
The image also includes green triangles spotted flying over the USS Russell.
The destroyer detected “green, white and red” lights in the sky – with three drones detected.
The USS Russell changed course to pursue the drone – but eventually lost track of the object.
And an unidentified vessel described as a “fun ship” was identified nearby, but did not respond to contact attempts.
US lawmakers last month disclosed the encounters to intelligence leaders when they confessed over the past year that they had polled 400 sightings and 11 near misses.
This is the first hearing of its kind in 20 years.
Intelligence bosses tried to explain how difficult it was to track the objects and showed congressmen two videos.
And while they don’t mention aliens, they do admit that there are some of the 400 encounters they have in their books that are truly inexplicable.
Images of green triangles were shown – and they are believed to be of unidentified drones tracked by the US Navy.
It comes on the back of a landmark Pentagon report in 2021 after three videos were leaked showing US Navy encounters with unexplained objects.
UFOs are currently being discussed by former intelligence officials, military veterans, legislators, NASA, and even former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.
NASA has even revealed their own UFO research plans – but it’s still clear that they don’t explicitly connect it to aliens.
While it’s unclear what the reality of the phenomenon is, it looks like there’s something in the sky that can’t be explained.
