UFO Sighting Report


January, 1, 2011


New York City, New York, United States


My roommate and I were walking home to catch the subway and looked up and saw what we wished we had had a camera for. There were no fireworks nor was this near the water. Very odd but thought you should know.

Date Reported:

1/1/2011 4:59:54 PM

Sighting Time: 

12:35 am



No. of Witnesses: 



10 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

There were about 30 or 40 of them, almost in lines of birds in flight headed out for the season. They were silver/white, not sure how to describe the shape. It was a bit dome shaped but we also were in a bit of a shock when we saw them.

Size of Object(s)

Right by 8th and 49th, there is a very tall building right by the subway station, they seemed very far away from even the top of the building. I would say if you held an eraser up they would have been about that size at the end of the eraser.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Not really sure. Hope the discription above helped.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Right by 42nd street, after the ball dropped. There were no fireworks, there was one helicopter but you could tell it was that. There were no street lights shinging up to that area and they were moving quick, slow, a few of them did a pryamid, and then they were gone as if nohting had been there at all.

Full Description & Details

My roommate and I were getting off work in Manhattan around 49th and 8th, right by the blue line, e, c, a, when we looked up and saw some very strange things. As we were walking down the sidewalk, at approximately 12:35 am, we saw a large group of unidentifiable silver/white objects in the sky. There were several lines of them and they were moving fast then slow, some even stopped. Approximately 9 to 12 of them formed pyramids in the sky then 3 also moved side to side as if enacting evasive moves in the sky. When we saw them they were between 47th and 50th street and closer to the east side rather than the west, where we were. I looked for other light sources and even saw a helicopter flying in the air above us for whatever was being filmed or watched. I was New Years Eve near Times Square after all.

As we watched the formations and the objects move against the background of our solar system, they disappeared. Even after walking around the block and searching for anything in the sky that would indicate they were weather balloons or a mass of airplanes or anything but what we saw, they were gone. As if they never existed. We noted the time as 12:54 am when we decided to go home to Queens, Yes I understand we live where 3 of the captured UFO’s already are, and considered ourselves very lucky to see such an unexplained event.

We both would say, since we had no time to count them or document what we had seen, there were approximately 30 to 40 of the objects that were in the sky, they came and went quickly, and we are not sure if anyone else even saw them.

NYC, Manhattan, 47th to 50th street, east side location. Duration approximately 10 minutes.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

I really don't think so. I had never seen anything like it in my life.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I know there are things out there that are not explainable. I had never seen a situation like this before, I find no explination for what my roommate and I saw, and I am Wiccan. I have read a fair ammount of information but never have incountered this situation personally. The first thing I knew I needed to do was write down the information and just get it out there so people would know, hopefully someone would be able to shed some light on it or at least have it confirmed by others.
