Former Navy Officer Recounts Seeing a Triangular UFO Emerge from the Ocean

In 1991, a Navy combat photographer witnessed a massive triangular UFO emerge from the Ocean, float in the air, and disappear into space, this documentary reveals.

Without a reason of a doubt, the most famous UFO videos we have ever seen are those that were “leaked” to the public back in 2017. The videos, a total of three of them, show unidentified flying objects being pursued or followed by US Navy pilots. It can be said that these videos kick-started, in a way, the path toward UFO disclosure which millions of people have been waiting for.

A refreshing change

The release of the videos changes so many things in the UFO community. For one, no longer are UFOs considered a conspiracy. Secondly, people are no longer afraid to speak out about them. But perhaps most importantly, is that governments, such as that of the United States, are putting in place regulations that protect people with confidential information on the subject. This allows people with “top-secret” information to come out and speak about what they know without fear of repercussions. The truth is out there, and the truth about UFOs deserves to be known. Having said that, here is a very interesting interview I recently came across.

Kevin Thomas served on the USS Nimitz, the US warship that supposedly was connected with some of the most famous modern UFO sightings in history. Mr. Thomas recounts in an interview that many years before the famous incident of Navy pilots encountering UFOs off the coast of the US, he witnessed a massive triangular UFO emerge from the ocean, only to shoot into space moments later. But before jumping into the reports that Mr. Thomas revealed in an interview, let’s look back at why the USS Nimitz is so important.


The 2004 encounter

Two Navy pilots shot video footage of a UFO shaped like a Tic-Tac back in 2004. The video encounter occurred as the pilots were on a routine training just off the pacific coast of the United States. Eventually, and after lots of bureaucratic work, the Navy admitted that what the pilots had seen and taped was an Unidentified Aeria Phenomenon, or UAP. This is the modern acronym given to UFOs. This triggered a chain of events. While the Navy and the Pentagon gave limited answers when asked about the counters, the US government started asking more questions. Eventually, the subject became of great national interest. UFOs became a very important subject of study. Now, even NASA is studying UFOs. The Pentagon rebranded its name and is cautiously studying so-called transmedium UFOS.

And in th light of such a huge leap forward in UFO research, more and more people are coming out with credible stories. In a recent video by QUEST TV, we have another great example of the many interesting things the UFO world has to offer. Not only are there more stories of ordinary people telling the world about their encounters, but former military personnel is doing the same.

In their October 22 video titled USS Nimitz Witness Tells His Story For The First Time | Contact, the show looks into the connection between UFOs/UAPs, and Earth’s oceans and lakes. Why are so many UFO sightings reported near bodies of water? Does that tell us something? QUEST TV spoke with a former USS Nimitz crew member. And he recalls his underwater UFO sighting more than a decade ago like it was yesterday.

USOs and the USS Nimitz

Kevin Thomas served as a combat Navy photographer, and in 1991, when he was serving aboard the aircraft carrier, he witnessed something that no one would easily forget. While on the fantail of the USS Nimitz, he saw a huge vessel surface pretty close to the carrier. But not only did the object surface as per the YouTube video, but it also surfaced. Eventually, it flew into the air and then disappeared into space. What Mr. Thomas had witnessed was what UFOlogists like to refer to as a USO, an unidentified submerged object. However, the object Mr. Thomas saw was both a USO and a UFO since the object emerged from the water, flew into the air, and then disappeared. But there is much more to the story than that.
