Two balls of light were seen lurking by a U.S. Navy warship last fall.
Reports of these orbs were recently revealed by a documentary filmmaker whose previous works have delved into the Navy’s other strange encounters with UFOs.
The New York Post reports how Dave C. Beaty—the director behind the 2019 movie, “The Nimitz Encounters,” which covers another strange Navy-UFO moment—unveiled this information during an interview with the U.S. Sun Online that was published on Monday.
The same Post article continues to describe how Beaty tells the story of how the warship—the USS Kearsarge—was followed by at least two “car-sized” orbs for several nights, both of which were tagging behind the ship by roughly half a mile and 200 feet above the ocean.
These UFOs were also supposedly filmed by the ship’s crew, although the footage has not been released (yet).
The Navy has long history of seeing UFOs, a history which was only publicly confirmed relatively recently after the Pentagon unleashed a series of strange reports and videos of such encounters.
“Anything that would expose a military weakness or military capability of course is sensitive, but if these objects turn out to be not man-made and not foreign state actors, we need to be open and address these with academic study, empirical methods, and grant funding to conduct research at the university level,” tells Beaty to the Sun.
“While I commend our DoD and officers for handling the collection of data, at some point we need to focus public attention on the mysterious question of what these objects are, that is the ones that have defied prosaic explanation after investigation.”
