In a video captured by the US Navy, an unidentified flying object is seen dancing on screen before crashing into the ocean, capturing the imagination of UFO hunters everywhere. There is currently little information about the object, except that the Pentagon has confirmed the footage is authentic, and now the video has been made available online by a UFO documentarist.
“The US Navy photographed and filmed “spherical” shaped UFOs and advanced transmedia vehicles; Here are some of those images.” affirms the filmmaker Jeremy Corbell on his website, where he has shared the clip and the details of the object.

According to Corbell, the video was captured 2 years ago, in 2019, but has since been made available to the public. It is believed to have originated within the USS Omaha Combat Information Center while it was sailing off the coast of San Diego, although this is unconfirmed.
Although the video is short, it appears that the object is capable of both air and water travel, making it more advanced in transmedia travel than any known vehicle, military or otherwise. The object itself is incredibly small, with radar images showing a solid ball measuring just 2 meters (6 feet) in diameter. However, it appears fast, reaching speeds of up to 254 kilometers per hour (158 miles per hour) during its aerial flight.
A search with a submarine was carried out shortly after it was detected, but the object disappeared a long time ago.
Currently, there is no known vehicle that can fly through the air for an extended period of time and then transition to the water and continue traveling. Throughout the 1900s, the concept of a flying submarine was explored, but significant challenges in air and fuel supply meant the idea never quite took off. In 2008, the US prepared to issue contracts for a flying submersible vehicle, but after Lockheed Martin canceled its plans for a submersible drone, it seems the contracts never materialized.
