The identity of 100 UFOs that swarmed over a fleet of Navy warships almost three years ago remains unexplained.
In close encounters that lasted for hours, the mystery crafts, complete with multi-coloured flashing lights, repeatedly appeared over vessels off the southern California coast during July 2019.
Navy chiefs initially reported they were reasonably confident that the UFOs were drones.

But documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell has said the ships’ crews claim the craft possessed capabilities beyond traditional human vehicles.
"I don't care if these were drones or true UFOs, pyramids, triangles or even seagulls with lights strapped onto their wings," he said.
"I want the fundamental question to be answered. Do we know the controllers of these units?"
Last year, Corbell published videos showing flashing objects hovering above US Navy ships, with radar screens picking up nine of the craft and infrared footage of an orb-shaped object diving into the ocean.
In a hearing on UFOs last month, Deputy Director for Naval Intelligence Scott Bray said he believed the objects were drones.
Last week, meanwhile, the Navy released slides suggesting the craft were Quadcopter style unmanned aerial systems and likely came from a nearby Hong Kong-registered freight ship.
But Corbell states he has dozens of accounts from crew, investigators and officials who say the freighter has been ruled out, as it was docked 100 miles away when some incidents occurred.
The movements are also believed to be more advanced than could be triggered by any known drone technology.

He said Navy documents showed the objects could hover at 21,000ft, fly for more than four hours, travel vast distances and were impervious to military anti-drone technology.
Corbell said a witness on the destroyer USS Russell saw one of the craft accelerate instantaneously into the upper atmosphere.
Others said the objects moved from the air into the sea and one Naval officer described it as "world-changing".
Naval documents detail eight incidents – lasting up to four-and-a-half hours – where unmanned aerial systems swarmed five warships in the Pacific over a fortnight.
Footage of a radar screen detecting a swarm over the USS Omaha also shows nine craft moving up to 158mph.
Corbell added: "There were estimated to have been at least 100 of them conducting a coordinated series of manoeuvres directed at our warships.
"If we don't consider this an urgent national security issue, America and many other nations who have experienced the same kind of encounters around the world, consistently and recently, are susceptible to attack by an unknown technologically advanced entity that can operate their craft in our restricted airspace with absolute impunity."
