Unusual UFO Sighting in San Diego: 2004 Nimitz Incident
San Diego is known as "America’s Finest City" for terrestrials, but are extraterrestrials interested in it, too?
In 2004, the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier was positioned off the coast of San Diego for individual ship training, and suddenly, one of the ship’s fighter jets spotted an unusual object in the sky. The aircraft captured live footage of the incident on its infrared camera, but the witnesses—including highly trained military personnel, expert radar operators, and fighter pilots in charge of the most advanced flight technology—could not explain what they saw. To this day, the 2004 Nimitz incident remains one of the possible UFO sightings in San Diego.
The USS Princeton missile cruiser had picked up signals of a mysterious object several days before the pilots discovered it in the air. According to the USS Princeton’s senior radar operator, his screen displayed more than 100 Anomalous Aerial Vehicles (AAVs) throughout the course of one week. The AAVs were witnessed at an altitude of 80,000 feet, a much higher height than any commercial or military jet is capable of flying at.
At first, the crew thought it was an equipment malfunction issue, but then they realized that everything was working normally. When the AAVs dropped from 80,000 feet to ocean level at a whopping speed, the crew decided to intercept. Commander pilot David Fravor came in close contact with the objects and described them as “40-foot-long Tic Tacs with no wings or propellers.”
Other Places Where UFOs have been Spotted in California
The year 2014 began mysteriously—people from Los Angeles to the Bay Area reported seeing unidentified objects on New Year's Eve. Eyewitnesses managed to take videos of the objects hovering in the air for about a minute before they flew off at a very high speed.
Civilians from Sacramento all the way to Stockton and Auburn came forth claiming they saw UFOs in Northern California. One of Sacramento’s eyewitnesses stated that the object was so bright that it could shine through a forest without any problem. To this day, it is inexplicable as to what people from various counties saw the night of New Year’s Eve 2014.
