Nick is part of a crack crew of investigators in a new Discovery Channel show "Contact". It follows the marine along with former CIA targeting officer Myke Cole, conflict analyst Dr. Michael Livingston, astrophysicist Sarah Cruddas, journalist Paul Beban and ex-Green Beret Kawa Mawlayee. He told the Daily Star: "We’re seeing a lot of sightings connected to earthquakes, which is very interesting. “Sarah [Cruddas] and I were looking at a lot of sightings around a series of earthquakes, relatively large for the area too. “And I know the team in South America were also looking into similar patterns." He added that found it "interesting that we have a correlation between mass UFO sightings and natural disasters". But he did caveat it by saying he couldn’t definitely say that extra-terrestrials were causing the chaos. Footage has emerged over the years claiming to show UFOs in the region of earthquakes. In one clip, multiple UFOs were spotted on camera over locations recently hit by a quake. While a second claimed a UFO may even be the cause of the natural disaster. Full story at site.
