Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Spherical and white, with the exception of one in the middle of the string (it was red). The apparent magnitude of the lights seemed to be a -3.0. The lights seemed to be attached to an invisible strong due to their hovering ability, but I didn't see any string. It was truly an odd sight that I had never seen before.
Size of Object(s)
Half an inch, if that. Reminded me of a star or planet as seen from the ground. Not sure what the scaling estimates would be for the actual size.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Suburb. Small town -- about 28 miles west of New York City. As to whether there are any military bases nearby.. Not that I know of. There are power companies, such as Jersey Central Power & Light, located in Morristown, NJ.
Full Description & Details
First off, I took some video (to the best of my ability with the hardware I had at the time) with my camcorder, which required me to adjust the brightness and contrast before publishing it to YouTube. With the adjusted version, you can make out the string of lights well enough, as well as hear the other people who are also concerned about these UFOs -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0w5sBN31-T4 .
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
It could absolutely be a conventional man-made objects, or objects.. It didn't look like anything natural that I have ever seen.
I am a voice over artist. Also finishing up college, receiving my Bachelor in Business. I have a fascination with the sky, both day and night. I also appreciate the beauty of a meteor streaking across the sky. I would love to visit a true dark site (at least a class 2 on the Bortle Scale) to take in the inherent beauty of the stars, planets, and the Milky Way (to name a few different objects).
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I look at the sky constantly. I enjoy going outside in the middle of the night just to see the few stars I can see in my neck of the woods. Light pollution definitely affects my viewing ability; however in the middle of the night is probably the best time to see the most stars. I do believe there are other lifeforms somewhere out in the cosmos.. It'd just seen naive to think otherwise. Whether these other possible lifeforms visit our planet..? Well, that is to be debated.
