No one else saw what Jan Nanette (a pseudonym) saw at the
Pentagon on that fatal day of Sept.11, 2001. I'm sure I know why. In my research data there are a
certain percentage of alien abductees who acquire paranormal psychic abilities. Also I believe that "GOD" pre-ordained that Jan would be where she was and see this incredible sight.
The following report is excerpted from the inspirational
Universe of Worlds: Exploring the Frontiers of the
Afterlife by Robert J. Grant, Chapter 1,
Death Has No Sting, Pages 1 to 4. When Jan Nanette awoke at 8:30 a.m. on
September 11, 2001, she was in a state of panic. She had slept right through
the blaring clock radio alarm, and was half an hour late for work.
It wouldn't have been such a bad situation, but Jan was
doing consulting work for the Pentagon, and this was only
her second week on the job. Jan telephoned the office and
told the receptionist she was running late. After a quick
shower, Jan dressed in a hurry, grabbed her briefcase, and
maneuvered through the heavy Washington D. C. traffic.
"I've always prided myself in being punctual," Jan said,
"And being late to anything is my biggest pet peeve; (this
situation) was worse because it was only my second week on
the job. On top of all that stress, I was really
perplexed. I went to bed that night before around 11:00
p.m. I always hear my alarm, and usually I'm awake before
it goes off."
Getting to the Pentagon was difficult that morning.
Traffic was heavy, which only increased Jan's anxiety.
When the Pentagon finally came into view, she felt her
anxiety subside, but its easing would be short lived.
After dealing with the D.C. traffic Jan said, " I felt
relieved when I finally saw the Pentagon, but I saw
something hovering over the building and all of a sudden,
I was afraid . . . . It's hard to explain, but this
feeling of dread came over me. I saw what looked like a
huge, black, oval mass or cloud-like thing on top of the
Above that was a white, floating mass like a puffy cloud.
But my attention was drawn to the black, oval shape. I
mean it was black - blacker than any color that I'd ever
seen. I knew it wasn't a cloud or smoke because of the
shape. It was oval in shape, symmetrical - and the
strangest thing was that it was perfectly still. It was
resting on the top part of the Pentagon and seemed to go
up maybe ten or fifteen feet.
I can't even describe how awful I felt just looking at it.
I know it sounds crazy, but if I could describe that black
thing in one word, it would be evil. Directly above this
layer of black was a large, oval, mass of white. It didn't
touch the blackness. It seemed to hover above it the way a
parachute looks when its open in the air, or an umbrella.
It was the most brilliant white I have ever seen. I can't
describe exactly how it looked but its shape, too, was
totally symmetrical and seemed to hover over the dark
thing. Have you ever seen a yin-yang symbol? Well it was
kind of like that, except the white extended higher than
the black. I saw these for only an instant. Looking back,
it was like everything was in slow motion."
It's not uncommon for people who are involved in, or
witness a traumatic event, to later report that time
seemed to slow down; what happens in a matter of seconds
imprints itself on the mind as if the event went on for
hours. That was Jan's experience as she observed the
strange black and white masses, and then witnessed the
plane crashing into the Pentagon.
What Jan saw before the plane crashed was, in her words,
"the most powerful, unexplainable thing I've ever seen."
Jan said she realized that she had seen the souls of those
killed at the Pentagon, departing the earthly realm,
BEFORE the plane crash occurred. In terms of actual time,
the complete experience couldn't have lasted more than a
From the time Jan noticed the strange black and white
masses above the Pentagon until the terrorist attack
occurred it was less than a minute. What she saw next was
even more horrifying. "I heard, then saw the plane heading
straight for the Pentagon" Jan said, "and it was like
seeing something totally incomprehensible. My mind just
couldn't believe what I was seeing. Before the plane
crashed, it was as if everything went into slow motion,
literally. I can't explain it better than that; it was
like watching a movie on my
VCR and clicking the remote to watch a scene in slow
Jan continued, The plane was heading for the Pentagon and
was still some distance from it. All at once I saw these
round, sphere-like orbs of light rising up out of the
plane. Dozens of them came out of the plane and it seemed
as if hundreds of them rose out of the roof of the

"Everything was in slow motion except these round
lights. They zoomed upward in a sort of spiral motion -
all of them together - upward through the awful blackness
and then they disappeared into the whiteness."
As Jan watched the light phenomena, she was filled with
what she called," the realization of an absolute truth" of
what she was seeing. It is frustrating for her to try to
describe how she received the message. It came to her
instantaneously, the way the answer to a dilemma or
problem may suddenly dawn in the mind.
In the midst of this horrible thing happening," she said,
"this instantaneous knowledge filled my entire being and I
was divinely reassured. I knew that those zooming spheres
of light were the souls of the people who were going to
die in the crash. I knew they were removed from their
bodies before the actual crash into the Pentagon."
Jan talked with others who witnessed the attack at the
Pentagon. No one that she spoke with saw the strange black
and white forms above the roof. No one saw orbs of light.
Nevertheless, Jan believes there was a spiritual reason for
her having this experience. "My spiritual life began on that
day, September 11, 2001. Jan said, "On the one hand, I felt relieved that I was
saved; had I not overslept I probably would be dead. But on
the other hand, I felt guilty, like Why me? I've been in
counseling since all this happened, and I've found that
survivors guilt is very common. I've suffered from periods
of stress and post-traumatic distress from witnessing the
crash. And yet in the midst of all the mixed emotions, I'm
filled with a sense of serenity where before I would cry
over the loss of all those lives.
Jan explained further, "God cannot stop the terrible things
we humans do to one another, like the terrorist attacks on
the Pentagon and the World Trade Center, but He is present at the darkest times of
traumatic situations. I know he is taking care 'behind the
scenes' of the souls involved, no matter how bad it might
Perhaps Jan survived and witnessed the vision that this
story might be told. In the Creator's infinite care and
love, perhaps He implanted a mystical understanding in Jan's
heart and soul that, although we grieve for the sudden
physical loss of friends and loved ones, there is a safe
passage for their souls - before the trauma, before the horror.
Jan's vision did not make the horror go away, nor did it
remove the grief of losing close friends, but it awakened in
her an understanding that, to the soul, death does not
exist. It is but a passage. Jan knew it was true. She had
seen it with her own eyes.
Researcher Donald Worley explains the aeroforms seen by
Jan, be they disc or orbs, are very much a part of the
dimensions that most humans, who are really like blind
slugs, do not realize exist around them. We live on a planet
that has now, due to modern scientific discovery, become a
frightening tinderbox of potential massive destruction. It
is a monumental tragedy that things have come to this.
This would never be if each human on Earth adhered to this
simple prayer from Robert Grants fine book:
Dear Lord, Let me this day be in harmony with the Source of all Love, all
Light, and be a channel of this Love, this Light, to those I
meet in every way. Let my thoughts be more and more attuned
with Devine Love, now. Amen.
