A former US Marine has claimed mass of UFO sightings are connected to mega earthquakes and other natural disasters.
Nick Karnaze, a former United States Marine Corps soldier who served in Afghanistan as an Intel Officer, is part of an investigation team tasked with collecting evidence to prove aliens have been in contact with Earth.
As part of his staggering findings for Discovery show Contact, the ex-soldier told Daily Star Online how he noticed a correlation between UFO sightings and natural disasters.
“We’re seeing a lot of sightings connected to earthquakes, which is very interesting,” Nick told this site.
“Sarah [Cruddas] and I were looking at a lot of sightings around a series of earthquakes, relatively large for the area too.
“And I know the team in South America were also looking into similar patterns.”
Nick revealed he found it “interesting that we have a correlation between mass UFO sightings and natural disasters”.
However, he added: “There are a few possible explanations but not nothing is really jumping out as definitive to say ‘this is what’s causing it, and this is why’.”
Footage has emerged over the years claiming to show UFOs in the region of earthquakes.
In one clip, multiple UFOs were spotted on camera over locations recently hit by an earthquake.
While a second claimed a UFO may even be the cause of the natural disaster.
And though the objects remain a mystery and their origins unconfirmed, the former military man revealed there has been multiple sightings near military facilities.
He added: “There are some other clusters of sightings that we’re seeing in areas that relate to military facilities, that would go online if it were a classified programme.
“Otherwise clusters of sightings, we see these clusters off the coast of California. Very unusual.
“And also some off the Eastern seaboard here in the US.
It comes after Nick claimed the objects were something “beyond a classified military programme”.
