New Navy Witness Claim He Saw A Mysterious ‘Tic Tac’ UFO Operating Underwater

When it comes to the Tic-Tac UFOs, the USS Omaha and USS Nimitz, as well as their pilots and crews, have received all of the attention. However, other ships in the same region have had their own experiences with pilots and crew members, and one just came out with a fresh account involving the vessels that have the Navy, the Pentagon, and Washington lawmakers most anxious — undersea and trans medium ships. Is it time for the rest of us to be concerned as well?

“I was looking down into the water from above when a gigantic, fat, white ‘Tic Tac’ thing, maybe twenty feet long, emerged in my vision below me, going right and darting into the depths as quickly as it appeared.” I couldn’t make sense of what I saw. It was unmistakably a solid thing, but as it dropped, its forward end quickly crumpled in on itself and vanished.”

In 2010, E-4 Petty Officer John Baughman was assigned to the USS Carl Vinson, a Nimitz-class supercarrier, while the ship was in Haiti delivering humanitarian relief following the country’s terrible earthquake. Baughman was a Gunner’s Mate on leave at the time, doing what many sailors do on leave: gazing out across the major reason they joined sailors. On the Trail of the Saucers website, he tells UFO researcher Ryan Sprague that he anticipated seeing “anything from sharks, dolphins, and whales to enormous squids, sea turtles, and swordfish.” Instead, he noticed an unknown submerged item. Because he was a well-trained crew member, he immediately reported the observation to his immediate supervisor, who informed Baughman:

“Everyone notices strange crap in the water.”

Strange – certainly, but this was not’shit’. While the USS Nimitz’s Tic Tac contacts in 2004 were still a decade away from being made public, there’s no question that they were known among Navy personnel, particularly sailors and pilots on supercarriers. His superior’s answer, on the other hand, represented the day’s mindset — don’t talk about UFOs or you’ll be deemed weird, mocked… or worse. Even after the Pentagon report confirmed that there are things above and below the surface that it can’t explain, Baughman told Sprague that he’s not sure what it was, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from reporting unidentified flying or submerged objects and assisting the military and private scientists and researchers in determining what they are and how to respond.

“It’s difficult to come to terms with something like this, and I’m still unsure about it since it doesn’t make sense.” At the same time, more data points, even if they’re as simple as my narrative, might assist answer the enigma of whether they’re foreign foes playing mind games, non-human creatures, or any of a plethora of other possibilities.”

Ryan Sprague deserves credit for having John Baughman’s story published. He’s inviting people – military, ex-military, and regular individuals – to report sightings and provides a location to do so on his website. As Baughman discovered, “everyone sees crazy things in the ocean,” but only the courageous and few report it.
