    Not theoretically impossible - but tricky for visible light.
    Look up 'Metamaterial' to see how to do it.

    Invisibility tricks are one thing, but the claims around this myth are extreme; including but not limited to crew members left half embedded in steel, time travel, spatial dislocation, etc.

    The best information that I found indicates that the USS Eldridge had never even been in Philly. The entire legend originates with one person - Carl M. Allen, aka Carlos Miguel Allende. There is no supporting evidence for the story and it is a banned topic.

    Check the S&D posting guidelines for additional information.
