A TRUCKER claims to have caught on camera a bizarre “Tic Tac” UFO “floating” over a mountain road in California.
Mario Jimenez was driving to work through Desert Hot Springs when he spotted what he described as a “UFO that resembled a flat cloud or blimp”.
The trucker shared the footage on YouTube, which appears to show a white object floating through the air.
“I always wonder how with modern technology we get all these horrible recordings of UFOs until today when I witnessed my own,” he wrote.
“Sorry for the quality was driving at high speed.
“Saw this on a route that I take to work very often I’ve seen clouds around the mountains very often but never like this.”
The eyebrow-raising clip was taken at about 8.40am on October 13, 2020 – but has just come to light after being shared by a UFO enthusiast, whose YouTube channel Mick Explores boasts more than 5,000 subscribers.
Many agreed that the footage shows a UFO, with one applauding the clip as “compelling”.
“This is SO cool! Awesome footage, thank you for sharing!!,” another wrote.
“It’s a tic tac,” one subscriber declared.
But others weren’t convinced and said the white object was likely instead a drone.
One commented: “Looks like a small airship or blimp, what do they use to inspect wind turbines within America?”
Another added: “Surveillance drone, nothing extra.”
“Studying the wind farm I expect,” a third chipped in.
The reported sighting comes after the US Navy pilot whose plane filmed the famous “Tic Tac” UFO footage revealed how his weapons system was disabled during the eerie encounter.
Seventeen years on, Lieutenant Commander Chad Underwood said when he tried to track the “target of interest”, he began seeing “strobe lines” on his cockpit radar.
UFOs have stepped from a fringe conspiracy theory to a genuine national security debate. In June, the US government admitted hundreds of mysterious encounters in the skies had been reported.
Earlier this year, the Pentagon confirmed the authenticity of an in-flight “tic-tac” video from 2004, recorded by his F/A-18 Super Hornet.
The incident unfolded during a USS Nimitz carrier group exercises off the coast of Mexico.
The crew aboard the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Princeton had been spending the past two weeks tracking mysterious aircraft on and off with an advanced AN/SPY-1B passive radar.
Last month, speaking to filmmaker Jeremy Corbell, the pilot revealed how his weapons system was suddenly crippled after he attempted to track the “tic-tac” object which was moving at incredible speeds.
He said: “Once I got the target of interest on my radar I took a lock and that’s when all the kinda funky things started happening.
“The erratic nature of the tic-tac. The airspeed was very telling to me.
“Then we started seeing what we call jam strobe lines.
“Strobe lines are vertical lines that show up on your radar that are indications that you are being jammed.”
