Full Description & Details
While driving South on the Palisades Parkway, my boyfriend and I noticed this large dark, oblong object, surrounded by lights to the left of the car. It was higher than the trees, but not very far away. Quite large, it was traveling slowly, like a hover. We pulled of the parkway to continue to see the object. Four other cars were off the road at the same location watching the object in the sky.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
None that I have ever seen.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I was 24 at the time. A female. I have enjoyed fiction reading. Think that there are unexplained events, but haven't believed that we have aliens among us or aliens that have visited the planet.
I just came across the book on Hudson Valley UFO's and was shocked to see that other's had witnessed this object during the same time period. The object appeared to me just as the illustration that accompanied the article appeared. I am amazed that so many others witnessed the same type of object.
