ufo sighting/9 18 2011 sunday between 10 30am and 10 55 am Hoboken NJ
notes from 2011
preface to sighting/
while walking towards the west side entrance of my building on Jefferson st. about 10 28 am i looked up and saw an all white jumbo jet flying west to east. i made specific note of its all white, no markings appearance . the jumbo jet looked very similar to the 911 mystery plane i had remembered seeing on the videos from 911 . then the following/
after the jet passed i looked up one more time prior to going into my building and spotted a bright white totally still object. it was directly above me and at a high altitude above the clouds and about the size of the head of a pin held at arms length. i watched it for about 3 minutes to see it was stationary in comparison to the telephone pole wires and my building. it appeared totally in place and not moving for several minutes. knowing this, i took the chance to run in and get my canon 20 d camera with zoom lens.
i came out and called a neighbor mike who was walking by and asked him to come over and look up and spot it with me. mike did and was also bewildered as to what it was? i took a number of shots hand held and tried to steady the camera, leaning it on the steps wall near my building. after taking about 12 shots as the object remained in place, i then asked mike to watch the object as i again ran in my building to get my tripod. by the time i came out the image began slowly moving west and seemed moving away. i got the camera on the tripod and then leaned it upwards and got about 6-7 more shots.
then to my amazement it started coming back towards the east and towards where I first spotted it. this really struck me as now it could not be a planet, the space station or anything in orbit.
and with the length of time it stood perfectly still i could not possibly see how it could have been a balloon. it also did not follow the apparent wind direction of the clouds and besides changed direction . as it returned, it seemed slightly higher in altitude as it came back to where i first spotted it.
it continued moving east as more clouds were beginning to fill the sky. i took several final shots before it was blocked by clouds and the side of my building. the two final photos demonstrate the heavy clouds and roof top edge of my building.
the fact that the object sat still in the sky for at least 5 minutes, then moved and changed direction had me truly stumped as to what this could be? it moved very straight no noise and at a very high altitude. however, even at a great distance, i could tell it was not perfectly round and had some shape to it.
after downloading the photos and darkening them , i zoomed in and saw the varied shapes this object made. i have all the original unadjusted shots on the camera as well as the unadjusted downloaded and darkened images compiled on my apple laptop. as a direct witness, i do not believe this was any kind of balloon or know craft, nor did i think it was moving in orbit.
a few days later i spoke to mike and he agreed it was not a balloon or anything he could figure out.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
no. it sat still for 5 minutes or so , then moved west, then stopped and returned east all independant of cloud movement .

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
i watch the skies and see many things cause i look up.
im submitting this becuase it is to this day unexplained by all who have reviewed it and i feel it has not been given enough study.
