Long Distance Drones, Maybe Foreign, as Possible UFOs.

Yeah decimal seem to make sense given the named location is close by but maybe its is possible there is some different convention which is a different near by location.
Whatever the format - the 119°W definitely puts the location west of San Clemente island.

The drone swarms in 2019 were reported with red , white and green flashing lights.
Couldn't help but notice there are green, red and white flashing lights on the Skyfront 13+ hr flight time drone.
And couldn't help notice one of Skyfront's customers is the US NAVY

Maybe red, white and red flashing lights are standard on drones?
Or could this be the NAVY using this drone in a training excersize?

Commercial drones are required to have flashing anti-collision lights.

Anti-collision lights are traditionally white or red but the FAA does not proscribe colors for the anti-collision lights in drones. The only requirement is that they be visible at a distance of 3 nautical miles.

It's likely that many manufacturers utilize the navigation lights (red, green & white) as anti-collision lights to save money.

I have a suspicion that some of those might have been stars - in particular Capella, which is one of the "Green Triangle" stars shown in the videos.

Article:
The reality is that every star in the sky undergoes the same process as Capella, to produce its colorful twinkling. That is, every star’s light must shine through Earth’s atmosphere before reaching our eyes. But not every star flashes as noticeably as Capella. The flashes are happening because Capella is low in the sky in the evening at this time of year. And, when you look at an object low in the sky, you’re looking through more atmosphere than when the same object is overhead.

The atmosphere splits or “refracts” the star’s light, just as a prism splits sunlight.

So that’s where Capella’s red and green flashes are coming from … not from the star itself … but from the refraction of its light by our atmosphere. When you see Capella higher in the sky, you’ll find that these glints of red and green will disappear.

By the way, why are these flashes of color so noticeable with Capella? The reason is simply that it’s a bright star. It’s the sixth brightest star in Earth’s sky, not including our sun.

Some of the drones look like the drones Palmer Lucky's company developed for the military , stealth recon drones

Palmer Luckey's company - Anduril., also make counter drone drones. Small drones that work with AI to track and knock out drones out of the sky.

As Palmer Luckey said, Electronic Warfare against autonomous / AI drones is useless . As knocking out their communication does nothing to them Thus why he developed a counter drone that uses AI itself to literally ram drones out of the sky
