May 1991

Alexandria, Virginia Unusual Object

Date: May 1991 ?
Time: Daytime sighting.

Just happened on your website and thought I'd report a possible sighting I made about 13 years ago, a Saturday afternoon in May 1991 I think. I was walking in an area of Alexandria, Virginia in broad daylight with few other passersby present when I happened to look up at the sky and was surprised to see an odd-looking hovering object at an undetermined altitude - guesstimate 10,000 feet?. Its shape was irregularly rectangular and apparently flat, nothing that corresponded to the usual repertory of UFO shapes. Color indefinite against the clear sky: perhaps gray. No sound was audible from it. I wondered if it could be a large piece of paper, lower than it appeared at first sight, but it seemed too rigid and it wasn't drifting or being wafted about as would paper. It was definitely neither a bird nor an aircraft: no wings, no flapping, no darting or wheeling. Instead, it seemed to move about purposefully and slowly in various directions for perhaps two minutes, and then it moved away in a straight line, maintaining the same altitude at a speed now suggestive of an aircraft, accelerating steadily, then apparently rising and soon disappearing in the distance. This is the first report I've made of this observation. Am not given to "seeing things" and this is the only time I've ever seen anything so inexplicable.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
