On September 13, 1995 I was on a highway in Sardinia, Italy on my way to Palau to catch a ferry boat to the island of La Maddalena. I was with an American government contractor to perform a job with the US Navy then stationed at the Italian base on Santo Stefano island in the Mediterranean Sea.
As I looked out over the scenery I was taking photos of I saw something in the sky. It was a bright white elongated object. I took a photo of this object, but I have only shown it to a very select few people over the years since.
I found this video on Youtube recently. The object I saw looked exactly like the object crashing in this video. Over the years since I have misplaced the the photo I took of the object I saw that day in 1995, but the object in this video is the same as what I saw. If I ever find the picture I will edit this article and post it here.
