Ever since the New York Times "leaked" a top-secret video showing a "Tic Tac" UFO, more and more people have reported similarly strange-shaped and strange-behaving UFOs.
The original "Tic Tac" UFO that made headlines was actually seen in 2004, but the term "Tic Tac" was not widely used to describe UFOs until the aforementioned NYT article, which was published in 2017.... SOOOO, which came first?!? The NYT article or the Tic Tac UFO?
Regardless, there does seem to be a recent increase in cigar, rod, or "Tic Tac" UFO sightings. In the latest example, a video of a stationary elongated object (seemingly) hovering in the daytime sky over San Antonio, Texas has been submitted to MUFON (case 118900). The witness allegedly saw this "while driving on De Zavala Rd:"
What do you think of this recent UFO sighting over Texas? Do you think it shows a "Tic Tac" UFO or something much easier to explain (like blimp)?
Is it related to other similar cigar, rod, and "Tic Tac" UFO sightings that have been covered on this site? (see example:)
10/11/21 Update: I have made a correction to this story since posting it. The correct date of the sighting is September 19th, 2021, not August as originally written (I presume this was just a typo on my part).
That said, this story also may not be over... people have been reporting an increasing number of "Tic Tac" UFOs in recent months. For example, according to a NUFORC report (case 164617), there was another "Tic Tac" UFO sighting over Dallas that occurred about a week prior to this one (on the 12th), in which the witness described seeing a "completely silent ... object ... "Tic Tac" like in shape... extremely high up in the sky." It had no wings and vanished within a "blink of an eye." Apparently the witness captured this UFO on camera, but unfortunately that video is not attached to the NUFORC report to view.
Original story (with correct date):
During a daytime flight, a passenger was gazing out the window when they noticed something strange... specifically, a metallic-looking "Tic Tac"-shaped object flying toward them. The witness snapped a few photos and submitted them, along with testimony (case 118274) to MUFON.
What do you think these photos show? An alien spaceship? Or is there a simpler explanation... like another commercial airliner? Check out the evidence below, and let me know what you think in the comments, or on social (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube):
(note - I corrected some spelling errors in the following report:)
Like a metal satellite - tic tac shaped?
I am currently looking into many cigar (or you could even say, "tic tac")-shaped UFO sightings. Could these all just be misidentifications? Or is there a spooky pattern starting to emerge here? Do you think these recent sightings in Texas are related to the national reports made by Navy pilots and other military eyewitnesses?
Check out this recent report sent to me and let me know what you think in the comments or on social. Chris in Cooper, Texas, writes:
It was north of Cooper TX around 5:43 p.m. on my way to work. I was in the passenger side. I looked out my window and saw it. The sky was a grayish blue and the object seemed to glow. I watched it thinking it was just a normal object, then the object began to phase in and out. I kept watching it to figure out if my eyes were playing tricks on me and the phasing sped up slightly, then it completely vanished. I kept looking to see if I could find it but it was just gone.
A large, white, cylindrical object was seen and photographed in the daytime sky in Mingus, Texas. The witness speculated that it could be a blimp, but was confused as they live in a town that is "out of the country." Check out the photos and testimony submitted to MUFON (case 116476):

A memorable UFO sighting from a few years ago has just now been submitted to MUFON (case 113545). According to the witness, an "egg-shaped object" hovered in the sky before zooming off into a storm that was developing nearby:
Metallic craft stationary then zoom into storm
Although no videos or photos were taken of this particular UFO, I wanted to spend some time on this case, because this is hardly the first time I've received reports of "egg" or oval-shaped UFOs.
These UFOs are sometimes called "Tic Tac" UFOs, thanks to the Pentagon and Navy using that same wording to describe the UFO videos that were released to the public in 2017. I just reported on a sighting of so-called "Tic Tacs" in San Antonio, in fact.
Compare recent sightings of oval, egg or "Tic Tac" UFOs to the Pentagon UFO videos below, and let me know what you think. Are the Tic Tac UFOs that the Pentagon is investigating being seen all over the world, including here in Texas?
