Washington DC Capitol. July 19th to July 20th 1952, at 11:40 PM, 7 unknown objects was spotted on air traffic control's radar. The objects were located 15 miles (24 km) south-southwest of the city; no known aircraft were in that area. A bright light was seen by control tower, it was hovering in the sky and then took off at incredible speed. At that point, more unknown objects appeared in all sector of the radarscope, the objects was flying over the White House and the United States Capitol. A airman who was in the base control tower saw the unknown flying object which appeared to be like an orange ball of fire, trailing a tail. The object took off at an unbelievable speed. A Capital Airlines pilot who was waiting in the carpet of his DC-4 plane for permission to take off, saw the flying unknown object, which he thought to be a meteor. He observed 6 objects - white, tailless, fast-moving lights - over 14-minute period. They took off at a high speed. At about 3 AM, the objects vanished when 2 US Air Force F-94 Starfire jet fighters from New Castle Air Force Base in Delaware arrived over Washington DC. But when the jet fighters left as they're low on fuel, the objects came back. They were last detected by radar at 5:30 AM. On the 29th of July, there was another UFO sightings. The UFO incident is known as the Washington Flip, the Washington National Airport Sightings and the Invasion of Washington. Also known as the Washington Merry-Go-Round, when the jet fighters were scrambled to intercept the objects, the objects outrun the jet fighters. Then the objects came back later on, the jet fighters went after them again, and the objects outrun them again. Although the official statement from the US Air Force was that the objects were actually "temperature inversions."
When @pgunio was still new in DC, one of our HS friends who visited asked her what was on top of the US Capitol Building. She didn't know what it was then so she just gave a guess 😅 Now we know that it is the Statue of Freedom, thanks to her amazing research and tour guide skillzzz ☺️Miss you pam! Thanks for being such a wonderful host 😘 #uscapitol#capitolbuildingdc#washingtondc#latepost
I've covered safety net #healthcare policy for Bloomberg BNA, now Bloomberg Law, for one year. And quite the first year it's been. Medicaid rose to the forefront of the national conversation amid the largest battle in its history over whom it should serve, its role, and who's responsible for the growing price tag: a defining debate that garnered newfound awareness. Still, in the absence of legislative overhauls, the Trump administration is likely to push through changes at the state level to restrict enrollment.
The now-lapsed CHIP also faced a year of deep uncertainty. As states run low on money and Congress fails to act, the prospect of shutting down the children's program becomes more real. Together the programs cover more than 74 million vulnerable people.
Literally a block away from the #USCapitol . As we were walking toward Senate Park, I thought to myself just how much I was going to enjoy taking these #firstlook photos for Joe & Natalie. Prior to the wedding day, the couple sent me a detailed spreadsheet of their timeline and every last piece of information I could ask for. And on top of that, they insisted I call or message them anytime for anything I need. It sounds like a typical thing that should happen but there was an obvious sense of how much they wanted us to feel like we truly belong in their wedding day. For them to be so welcoming and warm gave me room to enter their space freely and feel extra comfortable in the picture taking experience. Joe kindly greeted Kait and I at the hotel, and Natalie embraced our presence with a smile on her face and fun stories to share. We had such a special experience with these two. I can’t wait to share more images with them. 🤗
Life can be overwhelming and stressful around the holidays. Even though you are so happy to spend time with loved ones, the travel and craziness can dampen the mood. I challenge everyone to really take note of the “little” things in life to make you smile over the holidays! For me it’s the fact that I can walk less than a mile and just stare at the beautiful US Capitol Building or see the Washington Monument from my apartment! For the next week though I’ll be leaving the sighs of DC behind for the beauty of Texas! See ya in a week DC!
