Ceiling of Mirrors over my Blackhawk Helicopter.

My Blackhawk helicopter was taking fire from down below over the deserts of IRAQ one night. As the gunner, I was shooting and I momentarily looked up and prayed for God to protect us.

As I looked up, I saw like a thousand 16 by 16 inch flat square mirrors like solar panels all connected up about a 150 ft. long extending well beyond the length of the helo and 50 feet above it forming a flat ceiling. The panels were moving independent of each other like they were fluttering.

I donít know its width because the helicopter was partially obscuring it. But I had to look quickly back down and keep shooting because we were taking fire.

I am familiar with fixed wing and helo military aircraft, and work in a facility that repairs various military aircraft and have been doing so for 11 years. What I saw that night above IRAQ is unlike anything I have ever known, and I think of it to this very day.
