Navy Shot at UFO in 1896
Portsmouth, New Hampshire Naval Yard 1896
Picture this: you are standing on a small wooden bridge that leads from the shore to a wooden dock in the Piscataqua River in Portsmouth, NH. The year is 1896. You are guarding a United States Navy ship that is tied up to the dock. It is dark and the air is still and chilly. All you hear is the slight slapping of the water on the dock and the creaking of the boards you are standing on.

You have the latest and best rifle in your hands and you are getting a chill from the river breeze in the cool night air. The ship is tied to the dock and once in a while you hear the creaking noise of the old wood that the ship is tied up to.

All of a sudden the man who is guarding the navy ship calls out to you. "Hey what is this?" There, coming down the river and heading for the ocean is a silent object that looks like a white/yellowish oblong flying thing. It is flying, but has silent: you don't hear a sound, except the slight slapping of the waves on the pier and the ship. It is getting closer. What to do? Do you fire at it or just watch in awe and amazement of the "something" flying and coming at you and the ship?

There is no one to call or ask. The object is getting closer. It is almost over your head. As it gets nearer and closer you look at each other and decide this thing, nobody has seen before and you get panicky. What to do? So both men bring their guns up and fire at the object as it passes over their heads.

You hear the bullets hit the object. The sharp ping, ping on the metal surface. Now the object brightens up and silently gains speed and heads down the river and out to sea. Both men look at each other in bewilderment. One of the guards runs to get a superior officer. As the officer and the other servicemen run back they witness the White-yellowish silent object head out to sea. This is something that no one, not even an officer, has ever seen before.

The object that two armed navy men shot at and hit was still flying. It continued making no noise and appeared to have no engine or wings. No one has ever seen any thing like that before. It was reported to the base commander. He doesn't believe what he is hearing! A flying object, completely silent and all the servicemen heard was the sound of the bullets bouncing off its hull. The officer tells the navy admiral and the admiral gets the testimony of all three men who swear to the incident in written statements. Remember it is 1896.
