“Look at it Fly!” Navy Pilots Report UFO Sightings

Mention the word "UFO" and chances are people will think that you're talking about alien spacecrafts, X-Files paranormal phenomena or tin foil hat-worthy conspiracies. But who'd have thought that the U.S. Navy would have records of this kind of stuff?

The New York Times explains:

“These things would be out there all day,” said Lt. Ryan Graves, an F/A-18 Super Hornet pilot who has been with the Navy for 10 years, and who reported his sightings to the Pentagon and Congress. “Keeping an aircraft in the air requires a significant amount of energy. With the speeds we observed, 12 hours in the air is 11 hours longer than we’d expect.”
In late 2014, a Super Hornet pilot had a near collision with one of the objects, and an official mishap report was filed. Some of the incidents were videotaped, including one taken by a plane’s camera in early 2015 that shows an object zooming over the ocean waves as pilots question what they are watching.
“Wow, what is that, man?” one exclaims. “Look at it fly!”
No one in the Defense Department is saying that the objects were extraterrestrial, and experts emphasize that earthly explanations can generally be found for such incidents. Lieutenant Graves and four other Navy pilots, who said in interviews with The New York Times that they saw the objects in 2014 and 2015 in training maneuvers from Virginia to Florida off the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt, make no assertions of their provenance.

What could the flying objects be?

Got film of them? No video shown in this article. Remember what the U stands for. Drones? Ordnance (missiles, rockets, shells)? light reflections/lens flares? Venus? Impossible to seriously guess without something to look at.

"My guess is that the observed craft is an undisclosed US design."Most probably are. Others may be seldom seen atmospheric phenomena.
