Last night around 11:30pm I came down to get a snack and wake my mom off the couch. As I came down the stairs I saw an unusual near the horizon just above the tree line. It was a very clear night which is unusual for NJ. It was far too bright to be a star or planet and it wasn’t moving like a helicopter or plane. Not only that but it looked sparkling red! I live about 1 mile down the road of a military base, so it’s not unusual to here strange booms and noises or see flares. But this was no flare and I wasn’t the only one to see it. I woke mom up off the couch and told her to look outside. We both saw it. Then the strange light began moving up and down. At first I thought my eyes were just playing tricks on me, but no it was clearly moving up and down way faster than any helicopter could accomplish, even the tricked out ones for performance competitions.
Now this isn’t the first time I’ve seen strange lights in the sky in that area. I have even seen them outside my window. One night I came home late from working the night shift and a light was hovering outside my window and quickly fled one I got up the stairs. Another time me and my brother saw two strange lights moving through the clouds right after sunset. At first we thought they were a reflection but then they started moving up and down through the clouds with ungodly speed. The dog started barking at them.
But usually I see them and I feel I’m the only one, this time many people in NY actually called the police!
[quote=New York Post]The truth is out there — and it’s hovering over The Bronx.
A mysterious light in the sky so freaked out some Hunts Points residents that they called authorities to report their only possible explanation: the arrival of aliens from outer space.
A “flying spaceship” is moving swiftly over East 149th Street and the Bruckner Expressway, one terrified woman told a 911 operator Saturday night, according to an FDNY source.
Juan Marrero said he, too, had a close encounter.
“I look up and see this fireball, ‘Whoosh!’ and then another, ‘Whoosh!’ ” said Marrero, 57, a pigeon fancier who was on the roof of his building at 11:30 p.m. when he saw two bright lights streaking across the sky. “From one side of the sky to the other, too fast for an airplane.”[/quote]
I read this and freaked out! Holy crap that was when I went down for a snack!
[quote=New York Post]Andres Morales, 25, said he also saw the speedy orb — and did his best to document his out-of-this-world experience.
“I stuck my hand out the car window and snapped like crazy,” he told The Post. “I don’t know what it was but it was moving crazy fast.”
It’s not the first time locals have said extraterrestrial immigrants boogied down from another galaxy to check out the neighborhood. Unusual lights in the sky were seen in the same area last year, and also in 2011, according to self-described “UFO journalist” Ryan Sprague.
“I definitely think we’re dealing with anomalies that could potentially be nonhuman,” Sprague said.
East 149th Street is close to La Guardia Airport, which could lead to “misidentifications,” Sprague conceded, though he said witnesses should not be discounted.
Those who saw the orb on Saturday, and the one last May, echoed the same description — a light that “just sort of hovered, stationary, and then shot off in the blink of an eye,” he stressed.
“The maneuvers these objects seem to be making don’t fit with any current technology that we’re aware of,” Sprague said.
“They’re not moving, then darting off at unbelievable speeds,” he explained. “I just don’t think that’s something a human could survive.”
But why The Bronx?
“To study us,” one longtime resident offered. “Maybe they want to learn to break dance.”[/quote]
Maybe this light has something to do with the earthquake in Nepal or the loud booms I heard last week? But to be so bright and flashing that it was seen not only in NY but the Eastern coast of NJ?! I am a rational thinker first but even I have a hard time defining what this thing is and it makes me wonder. Furthermore it seems to have been seen on two nights, Saturday and Sunday. If it happens again tonight, I’m going to try to get a photo, but the best camera I have doesn’t work in low light.
