If you have not read Part One of this Two-Part article, please see the cover of Issue 96, November/December 2008, to bring you up-to-speed so you will know where I am "coming from" in the details below.
As I said at the conclusion of Part One, it was not until the summer of 2005 that I reported my sighting again. A lot happened in my life after the sighting and it wasn't on my mind so much, as I was quite preoccupied with a lot of other things - in other words, "life happened". But I never forgot. I don't recall now how I found out about the 2005 Symposium, but I did. I also discovered that the MUFON headquarters was in Littleton. I recognized John Schuessler from "somewhere" in the past, probably from seeing one of those UFO programs on TV. I attended the Symposium and joined both MUFON and Colorado MUFON, and began attending Colorado meetings regularly. Eventually I discovered other local meetings and began attending them as well, but not as regularly. I put a new report of the sighting on MUFON's web site and also NUFORC's site. Since then I have put it on all the other web sites that accept UFO reports (those I know of, anyway).
I created a PowerPoint presentation about my sighting and presented it at the December 2005 Colorado MUFON Holiday Potluck, held in Glendale. It was only a 10-15 minute presentation; John Schuessler was the "real" speaker. I also created a small presentation about a sighting in the 90's in Fairfax County, Virginia. A friend from church, who happened to work at the CIA (Langley headquarters), showed me an article that appeared in one of the local suburban papers. I made a photocopy of it, and later typed it into a Word document. I mention it here because the UFO reports all described it as being cylindrical, just as the ones I saw were. The article follows below; I am sorry that I don't have the information on the date and the newspaper. It would have been either The Connection, The Times, or The Fairfax Journal.
What's Happening over at the CIA?
You wouldn't have seen it unless you were awake and stargazing, but in the wee hours Sunday a strange craft zipped through the heavens on a course that took it by Tysons Corner, over the CIA at Langley and [up] the Potomac River toward Great Falls. Like all extraterrestrial craft, it was gone in the blink of an eye, but don't tell the eyewitnesses they didn't see anything. They did. And they're scared.
Not surprisingly, the news services gave Sunday's alien visit the token 3-line squib for wrap-ups, but that didnt diminish the effect of this alien craft on residents. Police switchboards were jammed with callers, while a special detail of Army Rangers swooped in by Apache helicopter to man The Company's ramparts at Dolley Madison Blvd. The description of the UFO is not unfamiliar.
"Well, all I know is what I saw," one newspaper carrier on morning rounds told a reporter. "I was driving up Dolley Madison when I saw this tube-shaped object-you know, sort of like a cigar-sail right over the CIA. It had lots of lights, shot what appeared to be a search light down on the grounds, then was gone. I mean gone, man. All you could see a second later were the lights heading toward the river."
A hotel worker fainted when it stopped to hover near the 20th floor. Lovebirds canoodling at Turkey Run said they heard the deafening roar of a jet and felt an intense blast of heat as the noise faded. Something flew over McLean and Great Falls Sunday morning, that much is for sure.
We may never discover the craft's origin, but we must learn what is going on at CIA that would make an alien ship stop to fix its investigatory ray upon our G-men and their benign reservation. Or is it all that benign? Thirty years ago, newspapers reported the crash of an alien craft in nearby Prince William, after which government agents supposedly took the bodies of its crew to Langley. It was much like the case in Roswell, N.M., where the government has yet to come clean about its fallen "weather balloon." Maybe the ET's in Sunday's UFO wanted to retrieve the remains of their galactic comrade(s), although one wonders what would now be left of the little green men, considering how many years they have been in the hands of government scientists. Many of NASA's top brains were drawn from the ranks of the Nazi hierarchy after WW II; 3 decades was ample time for them to conduct their "research" on our alien friends and dispose of their broken, lifeless bodies.
Of course, there are those who won't believe. But they will never believe, for they do not understand what is at stake, as do the victims of unjust ridicule. For them, the story will be the fantastic whopper it really is.
Back to my story… After reporting my sighting again, I occasionally would check MUFON, NUFORC, and other sites to see if anyone else who was there that night and saw what I saw had made a report. Nothing showed up until August 2007, which I didn't see until September. I was quite thrilled to see it, of course. This report was made to the MUFON site only. Here is the edited/shortened report plus details I got from the witness later, inserted within:
