All right, I'm going with misread hydrometer because it was the same temp and 40% of the beer didn't disappear from the carboy.  Thanks

If you didn't de-gas your secondary sample, you might have had CO2 bubbles lifting your hydrometer.

+1 bubbles, measure again and spin the hydrometer

I once had a similar problem but discovered that I was sliding the hydrometer back into the plastic case too quickly and the paper inside was moving giving me off readings. Broke it and bought another one, problem solved.
