UFO Sighting Report

Date:

July, 16, 2013

Location:

Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, United States

Summary:

Strange string of lights.. Perhaps 50 or so (maybe a bit more) lights hovering over Berkeley Heights. All, but one, were white (mag -3.0) lights; the lone one in the middle of the string was red. Hovered to the left and right a few feet (from where I was standing, looking up, of course).

Date Reported:

7/17/2013 6:42:17 PM

Sighting Time: 

11:55 pm

Day/Night: 

Nighttime

No. of Witnesses: 

Hundreds

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 .

I would just like some answers as to what these were. I was, and am concerned because I have never seen anything like this before. It was quite overwhelming to be honest. I had been walking to the car from the fireworks show that had just ended, and people were starting to notice the strange string of lights hovering over the area. I stopped and looked up at the gleam of lights in a parking lot, and herd mentality had ensued as more and more people came over and also looked up, wondering what was going on.

I'd say the apparent magnitude of the lights were around a -3.0. It seemed like they were fairly localized since as I moved, they were being left behind, rather than following me as I walked., but definitely higher than any normal (define normal) objects of this particular magnitude that I have previously witnessed in the sky.

I hope the details and video that I have posted is informative enough for someone to provide some answers. It was peculiar, that's for sure.

Thank you.

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.

Witness Background

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.
