Recently had an experience that I am having a hard time explaining to myself....
Quick background...I grew up as a military brat and have been a government IT contractor off and on the past years. Been to over 25 different bases
in my career including Fallon, NV and China Lake, CA where some weird things have been reported over the years. But this past weekend I saw something
I'm out on my back balcony overlooking the Hudson River, NYC and the Bayonne, NJ Container Port and I see this cigar shaped THING flying through the
air. No wings, no propeller, no visible engines. Had to be at least 5K-10K feet above the ground and was traveling in a straight line along the
horizon. Noticed it out of the corner of my eye and thought nothing of it at first until i realized that it took almost 20 minutes to go from me
turning my next all the way to the left till i got all the way to the right.
On top of that...after about 15-20 minutes it appeared to stop, climb straight up at least 2000 feet and then head back the other way in less than
15-30 seconds time. Once it finished climbing it went back all the way to where I first saw it and disappeared. Thing is...the original trip took
almost 20 minutes, the return trip took less than one minute.
I had 6 other people with me who saw it so I know I wasn't suffering from the holiday heat and beer. Just something I can't place. Any ideas?
