The swarm of drones that hovered around U.S. destroyers off the California coast remain unidentified, but there are “no indications at all” they are “extraterrestrial,” according to a top Navy official.
“No, we have not” made any conclusions on the identity of the drones, Adm. Michael Gilday told a Defense Writers Group event Monday in Washington, NBC News reported.
“I am aware of those sightings, and as it’s been reported, there have been other sightings by aviators in the air and by other ships not only of the United States, but other nations — and of course other elements within the U.S. joint force.
“Those findings have been collected and they still are being analyzed.”
The Navy is expected to deliver a report on “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” to Congress later this year, according to the report.
