    Tic Tac Nimitz.

    The image was first used in connection with the Nimitz incident in this 2015 article:

    It was used in the original "To The Stars" presentation by Chris Mellon

    The image was also used today by George Knapp in a piece on LasVegasNow

    However this "UFO" image is in fact of a mylar party balloon. It comes from this Rense.com page dated 2005:

    This object, and the described motion, is a perfect match for a mylar party balloon in the shame of a "1", a common digit in party celebrations.

    What do you think Mick, considering those people are close or near your age, are those people scammers? Do they or someone among them know this is a scam since such "UFO" cases with mylar baloons are already debunked before across the internet? Why are those people doing that and who pays for this fraud? And what's next, a wedding lantern?

    Or maybe just an alien invasion. :)

    I think the use of that image was a mistake. They are just not very good at investigating.
