I just found this site, Im so glade to be able to report this.
My husband was stationed in Germany on leave from the military. We had taken the kids to a movie, and then pizza hut.
We were traveling up 331 I believe the.I reached for a cigarette and saw what I thought was a blimp. this was about 6:00, the sun had gone down. My husband military was all in avaition for 22 yrs. I questioned him about that "blimp" he said that is not a blimp..
The odd thing is was there were no other cars, or traffic. there is a Y in the road, at that time there was a little hotdog stand, the craft was hovering above it. The left side of the Y was 331, the right side took you to the shopping centers. the cigar shaped craft had windows, and they blinked one window at a time, when the back of the craft windows could be seen on the clouds.
As I said there was no other cars on that intersection. My husband backed the car across a 4 lanes in the road and parked the car in a Gulf gas station. the kids were asleep. My husband and I got out and stood at the front of the car. (remember that it was 6:pm. The next thing I remembered to check on the kids in the back seat.. To my surprise it was 10:00pm. I have no memories of talking to my husband, and he wasnt talking either. Both of us had no memories of being that late at night.
Still standing at the front of the car, we saw the craft shoot up in the sky very fast. When we got home, my husband called the FtBragg to see if anyone saw on radar.
I still have questions as to what we were doing in the hours between 6:00pm and 10:Pm its all just a blank.
