Footage captured by the US Navy that shows a spherical unidentified flying object (UFO) was recently released. The UFO was caught hovering in midair, moving side-to-side before diving into the ocean.
The video was published online by a filmmaker who produces documentaries about UFOs. His name is Jeremy Corbell, and he described the mysterious object on his website. He wrote that "the US Navy photographed and filmed 'spherical' shaped UFOs and advanced transmedium vehicles".
The video of the actual footage appears to have been shot off a monitor and has several edits. It shows a dark, round blob sitting above the horizon. Male voices, suspected to belong to members of the US Navy, can be heard in the video. One says, "took off, bookin' it," as the object moves horizontally in the screen's crosshairs.
The scene "reached a crescendo" with the blob entering the water, and one of the off-screen voices says, "Whoa, it splashed!" as the UFO disappears, Corbell wrote.
Pentagon spokesperson, Susan Gough, confirmed that the footage was captured by the US Navy. However, she did not comment on when and where the footage was actually taken. According to Corbell, the footage was filmed on July 15, 2019, at approximately 11 pm PDT, from within the USS Omaha's Combat Information Center, near the coast of San Diego.
The radar images taken of the UFO shows a solid unknown object, which measures about two meters in diameter, flying at a speed of 46 to 158 mph (74 to 254 km/h).
The object flight lasted over an hour before it vanished beneath the waves after diving in the water. However, no wreckage was found at the location where the object went down.
Corbell said that: "A submarine was used in the search and recovered nothing. We do not know what, if anything, the Navy or Pentagon might be willing to say about the USS Omaha incident, but we are confident the incident is a legitimate mystery and look forward to whatever information might be forthcoming."
Gough confirmed that the footage was included in "ongoing examinations" by the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF). According to The Debrief, the UAPTF are a US Office of Naval Intelligence program investigating reports of unexplained aerial vehicles.
