A US Navy officer who witnessed the USS Nimitz UFO encounter has revealed the object had mysterious legs protruding from it, in a clearer video not released to the public.
Jason Turner was a Petty Officer on the USS Princeton when fighter jets from nearby ship USS Nimitz encountered a strange object off the coast of San Diego, California, US, in 2004.
Footage of the incident was released in 2017 and showed how the tic-tac-shaped “craft” was able to pull off otherworldly manoeuvres.
Despite being grainy, the video has gone on to become one of the most widely-cited clips that conspiracy theorists use to prove the existence of UFOs.
But Jason has now said there is an even clearer video out there which shows the craft in a whole new light.
“What the video you see now is just a small snippet,” he told Dave Beattie of The Nimitz Encounters.
“You’re seeing small turns left and right but this thing is so much more than what you see in this video.
“The quality was very clear [in the other video].
“It was always really clear but what you see now is fuzzy and grainy, hardly identifiable.
“The shape of it [was odd] as it had some protruding objects at the bottom of it.
“I couldn’t tell if they were curled back or straight down because I was a good five or 10 feet from the feed.
“But there were definitely legs on it. It was oblong, like a tic-tac.”
Jason went on to say he had “never seen anything like it” – and sent a stark warning if it is never identified.
“It puts everybody at risk – our military, our people, our homeland – if there are things that are far superior to us and our capabilities,” he explained.
Several other witnesses of the UFO have come out since the initial revelations in 2017.
Commander David Fravor revealed earlier this month that a mysterious “dark mass” was spotted emerging from the ocean and swallowing a torpedo – some 10 years before the Nimitz incident.
