Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The UFO was about the size of 2 full moons that are low in the sky on a spring night. I describe it to be about the size of 747 getting ready to land at about a thousand feet and of equal size. It was football shaped but rounded at the ends. It had what appeared to be a light bar across the center. The light bar having about 6 large lights separated by a blank spot in the center. The lights ran across from left to right in a progression. The color went from yellowish to orange on the left then from orange to yellow on the right. It flashed across and then as the last light lit it disappeared and the vanished.
Size of Object(s)
holding my arms at about 3ft wide and about 2 ft apart for the height. I say that the size would be if a 747 was coming in for a landing at about 1000 ft off the ground and was on approach to land at airport. I have seen this hundreds of times and that looked to me to be the height. in my guesstimate it was about 250 ft wide and 100 ft high.This is judging from what the length of a 747 is.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
Distance was about 2 football fields and about a 1000 ft high.
Description of Area / Surroundings
It is a state pkwy in a rural area of Putnam County upstate NY
Full Description & Details
I was heading to my brothers house in Verbank NY on 5/10/13. It was a clear night and it was about 62 degrees out. I had my fiance -Michelle Langone ( age 37) in passenger seat and in the back of car were(behind me(asleep) my fiances son) Derrick Hulsen (age 13) in the middle my nephew Vincent Alaimo ( age 15) who was awake and engaged in conversation with my fiance and myself and also witnessed the UFO. behind Michelle was Dana Hulsen (age 16) (her daughter who was asleep also during sighting). I was driving North on the Taconic Pkwy ( I just looked at speed and i was doing 60 mph) I approached Fahnestock Pk @ Pudding St. ( we were traveling in left lane) it was a clearing with a treeline directly to my right. The UFO was a free floating , hovering and about 1,000 ft off the ground .As we approached the patch off trees (about 20 cars lengths) i noticed a football shaped object that had rounded edges hovering and floating free or any obstructions about above the treeline. It had lights across the middle that were separated. The lights flashed from left to right as if it was a light bar that had 3 lights on it and then a space of 3 blank spots then another 3 lights.The lights ran across from left to right and as the lights finished there progression the UFO craft disappeared. Vanished as fast as it was there, but not before Michelle and Vinny and myself all commented that we just witnessed a UFO over ( what we know to have )The Stone Chambers of Putnam County. As I passed trees I looked up in a complete clearing and saw nothing in the sky. I also glanced through the sunroof and saw nothing as well as a quick check in my side view and the rear view mirrors.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No. This was a unfamiliar object and did not mimic and other object i have ever seen in my life and travels.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I have seen UFOs on Three separate occasions. 1991 my X Wife and I saw 3 UFOs over Middle Village Queens fly in formation and break into single file and then fly away for over a 2 min sighting. We Video taped it but later discovered just blurs and eventually taped over it. In 2008 my girlfriend but now fiance was with me and her 2 Children Dana and Derrick saw a UFO over Juniper Vally Pk in Middle Village Queens and that sighting lasted about 2 min solid. It zig zagged and changed positions instantly and and hovered at different heights then disappeared into the day sky.
I think that when you see a UFO it needs to be told, i don't like that people don't believe what we see and try to make light of the story we tell and the picture we paint in there minds. I have seen UFOs before and never told people, I'm letting you know what I have seen exists.
