David Axe reports:

The US government apparently recently streamed, possibly live on the public internet, footage from at least one military-style drone flying over Florida’s panhandle.

The drone appeared to be flying thousands of feet over the coast, aiming its high-tech camera at random civilian boaters as part of what could have been some kind of test—or maybe a demonstration by a military contractor. The footage is still up on the obscure website and is reportedly a recording. It could, by now, be months old.

Yes, this is weird. Especially considering that one of the agencies that apparently sponsored the feed is the National Reconnaissance Office, which oversees America’s fleet of top-secret spy satellites.
