Have you ever experienced things that you cannot believe? I have. It was on 9-11, as a matter of fact. I was working at the National Science Foundation when the planes hit the twin towers. The NSF is located in Ballston, VA.  Normally, it took me nearly 2 hours to drive from Laurel, MD, Howard County, where I lived, to Ballston. I was working through Sybase (an SAP company now) as a senior software engineer.  We gathered in the conference room and we were shocked, as we all were nationwide.  We had to evacuate, as we were in a tall building, about 20 floors, and drive home.

Unfortunately, we could not drive through Washington, DC as I have done dozens of times. I had to drive out to Manassas, VA, nearly 30 miles away, south on the Fairfax Connector into Fredericksburg, VA and back up I-95 to the eastern beltway, I-495, and back up into Howard County.  That trip, from 1030 AM took almost 8 hours.  Yes! 8 hours!  When I got home, my wife and I sat on our deck and listened to… nothing. No airplanes, the birds weren’t even chirping or flying.

Then we looked up into the partly cloudy sky and what we saw was weird.  A cigar shaped; black object was hovering way up in the sky. I’d guess about 20,000 feet.  You can see planes upwards of 35,000 feet but barely white specs in the sky with the contrail. My second wife and I stared. We watched it. It moved right, left, and moved like lighting to right (due east) as our home’s back yard faced north.  We didn’t understand this. That was something that totally floored us.  It was my first experience with seeing, what I believed, was a UFO.  Why was it there?  What was it and why on that particular day?

I experienced something else while in the US Navy, but it fits more into the UneXplained than Unidentified. I was on the USS Yellowstone AD-41 (www.ussyellowstone.org which I built and needs updating) and we were traversing from Norfolk, VA to Mayport, FL. We were on our last leg and I was at the helm. I was a master helmsman as well as one of the Draftsman/Illustrators in the Print Shop.  We passed into the Bermuda Triangle (credit History Channel) and the ship just stopped!  For 2 hours we floated. Engines and all power gone!  The compass and gyros spun wildly. We bobbed and floated. Then just as mysteriously as it stopped, the power came back on, the compass and gyros stopped spinning suddenly and locked back into their position.

A starboard bow view of the destroyer tender USS YELLOWSTONE (AD-41), the nuclear-powered guided missile cruiser USS BAINBRIDGE (CGN-25) and the guided missile frigate USS MCINERNEY (FFG-8) tied up alongside each other while in a harbor.

The teletype started and the Navy Command Center, where I worked from 1989 – 1990, radioed us and asked where we were. They lost all contact with us and our position was 2 miles from where they lost us.  We regained control of the ship and sailed into Mayport without further issue.  Like I said, it was more of UneXplained then Unidentified.  But suffice it to say, I have experienced things that I cannot explain but that UFO on 9-11 was definitely, Unidentified.  Tune into History and watch, Unidentified and if you’ve ever experienced seeing something you cannot identify, then you are not alone.
