In 2004, the U.S. Navy’s Carrier Strike Group 11 was conducting training off the California coast when radar operators began to detect unusual aerial objects nearby. Over the next several days, the objects would be repeatedly observed, culminating in a close encounter between one of the objects and a pair of fighter pilots.
Known today as the “tic tac,” the object described by the pilots during the 2004 USS Nimitz incident has become one of the most widely-recognized descriptions of a purported UFO in recent days. However, its appearance in 2004 was not the first time such an object has been described in UFO literature. This week on The Micah Hanks Program, we go on the trail of the tic tac in a search through history for similar descriptions of aerial objects since the end of World War II.
