I am pulling this from my memory. I remember it every day of my life for about 40 years now. I don’t remember exactly which day it was, the date is unimportant to me. It has always amazed me, every single time it comes to my memory – what did I see? Did I communicate with them on some level? I never said a word about this to anyone ever, as it just means nothing, it answers nothing, just making me look bizarre.

Today, I work as a mechanical engineer, registered as a professional engineer. And still, 40 years ago that day captivates me, as I sit here alone in my own thoughts. I have no answers.

It was a sunny day, 3 of us were sitting outside, trying to get one of those little kerosene engine model planes engine to start up, so we could fly it. It would not start. We lived about 1 mile from a naval radio station. As I said, it was a sunny day, except there was only 1 cloud in the sky. As focused on the cloud, I say a shiny ‘ball of mercury’ floating stationary below the cloud. Right as I saw it, I knew what I was seeing, and I thought “You dumb suckers – you are supposed to be hiding in the cloud, not below it.” I thought they were focusing on something, and drifted out of the cloud cover – or I guess, the cloud moved away from their location, exposing them visually. Right then, I felt like they heard my thoughts, they were in my head. It was a strange sensation – I can’t explain it. As I spoke those words in my head, I sensed them. In a few seconds it started rising, and accelerating at a straight 80 degrees straight up, increasing rapidly in velocity. It disappeared from view in a few seconds – straight up into space. No smoke, no sound --no trace. just gone.

That’s it. A couple seconds has mesmerized me for years, 40 years. And I know there will never be an answer. It’s like having a sip of coffee in the morning, then you are waiting for your second sip, that never comes…. ….

I feel I need to still keep this anonymous. I have 0 interest in talking anymore about it. I just wanted to contribute to those that are confused. There is nothing to be afraid about. Everything, places above are true, but I just don't want to be known. Sorry.
