A U.S. warship opened fire on several UFOs that terrorized U.S. Navy destroyers off the California coast over several weeks in 2019.
A series of UFO sightings occurred in July 2019, when up to six mysterious flying machines swarmed over several U.S. Navy warships near the secret Chennell training area in the Channel Islands.
It was originally reported that these groups of UFOs disturbed U.S. ships for several days in mid-July, but new documents show that UFOs flew near U.S. ships with impunity for the entire month.
According to the new information, on July 20, the USS Russell fired five shots at UFOs that could fly at speeds of up to 80 km/h and travel at least 200 km in a single flight, far beyond the capabilities of any commercially available unmanned aerial vehicle.
The USS Russell, a U.S. Navy destroyer, encountered the drones around 9:30 a.m. July 20 and fired five shots around 11 a.m. with one misfire and four misses on target.
Two days later, at 10:30 a.m. on July 23, the USS Russell sent a team of “ghost hunters,” a rifle-shaped anti-drone device that jams radio frequencies between the drone and its operator, but there were no positive results.
The USS Russell also dispatched a “Small Craft Response Team,” or SCAT, which provides 360-degree vessel protection and is typically used to attack small boats. At the same time, the USS Bunker Hill also sent SCAT and SNOOPIE teams. However, they were unable to repel the UFO group.
The Navy was unable to identify this group of UFOs during the investigation.
The lack of evidence led to widespread public discussion after filmmaker Jeremy Corbell published a series of photographs showing a triangular-shaped UFO flying over the superstructure of the USS Russell. The Department of Justice confirmed that the footage was taken by the ship’s crew.
