Full Description & Details

My friend and I were had been around near Manitou Rd. in Garrison, a rural area off of Rte. 9D just north of the Westchester-Putnam county line, having left our homes without our parents' knowledge. It was just a short time before or after midnight, and and we were walking on Manitou Rd., just west of Rte. 9D, and we both noticed the sky lighten. We both turned around back toward 9D and saw a glowing object of the sky. My friend's later description of the object differed somewhat from mine, so here I only give my recollection of what I saw.

It was difficult for me to estimate how high it was in the sky or how far away it was, but I would guess about 500 feet in the sky and about one-fourth to one-half mile south of us (toward the Bear Mtn. Bridge) and a little bit east of us. The object was a saucer-shaped craft that glowed a bright whitish light. It made no sound that I heard and then traversed the distance from where it was to just a little bit east of us (one-fourth to one-half mile) in less than a second, and stopped "on a dime," still making no noise. After a few seconds, it traveled northeastward (toward South Mtn. Pass) until we lost sight of it.

We both reacted with fear--I felt an intense fear in part due to the object's seeming command over time and space--and we moved further away from what we had seen before we started talking about it.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I had not gone out of my way to read about UFOs before my sighting. Since then, I have had some interest in the subject. I have sought hypnosis as an adult, but have not had success with it.
