THE family of a sailor who looked into the famous Nimitz incident claim a “wolf-like” creature started to look into their home after the investigation.
The startling revelations were revealed in a new Military.com report drawing on interviews with a number of former officials involved with the Pentagon’s probe into UFO sightings.
In 2004, Naval fighter jet pilots had taken off from the USS Nimitz, a nuclear aircraft carrier, and encountered an unidentified oblong object in the sky that became known as the “Tic Tac,” due to its shape.
The UFO, aka unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs) has, over the years, drawn a lot of interest and speculation as to what it actually was.
At the time, a secretive Pentagon program commissioned a sailor to carry out an investigation.
When the sailor, who has not been named, returned to his wife and teen children in Virginia, they say they saw on two occasions a “wolf-like” creature that walked on its two hind legs, peering into their home.

Their claims have not been verified.
Now-retired Defense Intelligence Agency official James Lacatski said in the interview the military started taking claims about UFOs more seriously after concerns were raised aliens might pose a risk to national security.
“You know what was on the internet at the time, it just sounded like advanced technology to me,” Lacatski told Military.com. “I said, ‘I’m interested. We need to do something about this if it’s true.’ And I spoke to my management, and it started from there.”
Many documents detailing the military’s growing interest in UFOs started being leaked to the press during Donald Trump’s time in the White House.

Congress approved defense spending which included the creation of a more public-facing UFO office in December 2021.
Despite that, information has remained piecemeal and unconsolidated because most files have not been declassified.
The dedicated unit is called the Anomaly Surveillance and Resolution Office (ARSO).
It will probe whether or not the strange craft that have been reportedly buzzing the US military are unknown technology from Russia and China or potentially something more alien.
Critics of the move have claimed though little will change and any government will simply cover up any major findings.
Mutual UFO Network spokesperson Ron James warned in January this year that the public is unlikely to find out about any evidence of alien interference.
"This is a subject with a provable history of secrecy," said James, speaking to NBC.
"And anything that lacks a new openness about the information is subject to more, possibly inappropriate control."
James added: "We don't see that this means new resources will be dedicated to the matter.
"We believe considerable resources have always been dedicated to the matter at some level inside deep government and industry."
In a well-documented “Nimitz incident” off Southern California on November 14, 2004, a mysterious object was picked up by radar, camera, and seen by four naval aviators.
David Fravor, commander of the F/A-18F squadron on the USS Nimitz and flying at his wing, Lieutenant Alex Dietrich, were two of the four people who saw the object.
Fravor said: “We saw this little white Tic Tac-looking object. And it's just kind of moving above the whitewater area.
“The Tic Tac's still pointing north-south, it goes, click, and just turns abruptly. And starts mirroring me. So as I'm coming down, it starts coming up… It was aware we were there.”
He said the object was about the size of his F/A-18F, with no markings, no wings and no exhaust plumes.

Fravor added: “I don't know who's building it, who's got the technology, who's got the brains. But there's, there's something out there that was better than our airplane.”
