I was at working in my office in a building just a couple of miles north of Miramar Naval Air Station (site of the old Top Gun Flight School) in San
Diego. I am looking out my large glass window north and west. It was one of those days with high pressure keeping a cloud bank stationary over local
Interstate 5 near the Pacific Ocean but the rest of the sky sunny.
I was talking on the telephone and noticed that moving slowly south through the clouds was a dark shape in the cloudbank. I thought it was
something related to the military, what with so many flights from NAS Miramar flying over our building in those days. But it was moving oddly. To
give an analogy, imagine a black fish (like a Molly) swimming in a cloudy gray tank of water among plants. It definitely captured my attention, but I
continued to talk on the phone with my cousin.
As it appeared to move further to the south, it began to emerge from the clouds. At this point I have confusion between what I thought I saw, and
now how I have explained it to myself. I thought I was looking at a huge sphere. As it revealed itself, it was round, had a brownish red, color
like a rusted frying pan, and was textured with a faint but distinct pattern of horizontal and vertical bands, slightly curved suggesting roundness,
and in the space of each intersections of the bands a pattern that looked octagonal. By this time I was moving from window to window to change my
vantage point, but it remained. It must have been lunchtime or thereabouts because nobody else was there, so I couldn't get verification. My cousin
was still on the phone on my desk.
Then one of two really amazing events took place: as I was looking, the circle of what I assumed was a sphere, turned into a line. I saw no
movement between the stage of circle and line. I did not know what was happening. Then, equally confusing, the line vanished and the circular shape
returned, but without a visual experience of this change, and it was smaller and set back deeper in the clouds so I could no longer see the pattern.
Now my words fail me because the next and most amazing event took place. With no sense of it moving, it appeared to change positions, still as a
circle, but from one location to another. My analogy is that it looked like a basketball bouncing in the clouds. My interpretation is that I had
been looking at a saucer shaped object with its edge down toward the ground, changing positions so that it was edge toward me looking like a line.
Then it returned to an edge downward position but some distance further from me returning a little into the cloudbank, and then changing position
faster than the eye could track. I changed windows again, but then it was gone. I returned to the phone and asked how long I had been away. About 4
minutes was the response. I scanned the news the next day for similar reports. Nothing
This area was too heavily used by the military for this to have gone unnoticed. The area is just a few blocks north and west of the main entrance
to Miramar Naval Air Station, with lots of corporate offices and businesses around. It was early-mid afternoon. Something is just not right about
this scenario. If I had called the authorities, would I have been visited by Men In Black?
