... “mother of pearl, silvery white disc as big as a KC 10 tanker at least
Let me just say this about myself; I’m 55 years old I am a navy veteran jet engine mech. stationed on an aircraft carrier, always been a gearhead, model builder, sci–fi books and movie fan.
Compared to most people I’m a military aircraft expert; knowledgeable on theories of flight etc. and what I saw was
totally life changing.
Portsmouth, New Hampshire, on the coast. It was a brisk November weekday about 2 pm; bright sun, low white fluffy cumulous clouds moving quickly inland. It was about 50 degrees and I just happened to be walking near the loading dock (door was open) and a tall DHL driver had a package and needed a signature.
We made idle greeting conversation; he was a good bit taller than I so I had to look up to talk to him. Over his shoulder something caught my eye. He drove off.
I went outside and saw something shining through the cloud, but it wasn’t the sun; it was two o’clock and
the sun was over my right shoulder and behind me.
So I kept watching as the clouds moved over the stationary object. It was a “mother of pearl, silvery white disc as big as a KC 10 tanker at least. I saw it as the wisps of cloud peeled and swirled off its edges then it became unobscured by clouds.
I was standing there in awe; I had the presence of mind to look around, but there wasn’t a soul anywhere. It stayed put for about an entire minute.
I called out at this point to a co-worker on the phone inside; then it started to move out over the ocean. By the time my co-worker came out it was fairly small, but she did see it!
It went until it became a dot; then took off straight up in an instant.
Our company is located adjacent to the control tower at Pease military air base, how they could not have seen this thing is ridiculous. Somebody had to have seen something.
