Re: 1983 UFO Landing, N.J.

On August 15, 1983 I returned home from work to my residence in Cookstown New Jersey.

Since my girlfriend didn’t have dinner ready, I decided to take my two dogs for a walk. I had already been warned by the New Hanover Police not to walk my dogs through town as they were vicious and I kept them as guard dogs. I chose instead, to walk them through the adjacent property which encompassed a large field and a since shuttered Oil Company. It was very humid this night and the sky was overcast and no stars were visible. I began the walk around the outside perimeter of the property along the wood line, when it became obvious that my dogs were growling at something that was not in my field of vision. Since I had already had trouble with the police and couldn’t see what was upsetting the dogs, I began to walk the dogs away from the wood line to avoid my dogs attacking a person or another animal.

I had then reached the middle of the field, away from the shadow of the wood line and now the dogs became even more aggressive and both dogs were now looking “up” in the same direction. It took a moment for my eyes to adjust, but then I saw it. A massive triangular object sitting motionless in the air above us. The object was horizontal in the air above me, with the point of the triangle at the top and the wingspan below that. The air reeked of ozone, which really surprised me as I didn’t see any sign of lightning the entire ride home from work, or since I had arrived home. Looking at the object, I had a strong feeling that there was something very unnatural before me; it was as if this object was not entirely there before me, only a “portion” and another “portion” was somewhere else. It was as if a hole or window had been punched into the air above me, reeking of ozone and the object was within this “hole”.

I tried to make sense in my mind to what I was watching, and tried to dismiss this object as a classified aircraft since the Main Gate of Maguire Air Force Base was about 1 ½ miles away. I then began to wonder why the Air Force would test such a Top Secret Aircraft in a residential area away from the base. Nothing made sense at all, especially a craft that obviously has mastered gravity. While pondering these thoughts, I decided to calm down and smoke a cigarette. At the instant I struck my lighter, an immense wave of “feeling” hit me, the hair rose on the back of my neck and it was very clear that both my dogs reacted in the same instant as the feeling hit me. The “feeling” I had was unmistakable, it seethed through every part of my being. It was pure contempt, as if I was the intruder! In this instant I knew it was not of human origin and I immediately began walking back to the house and didn’t look back. I had an unshakeable sensation that I had eyes on my back the entire time bringing the dogs home!

Upon turning to leave, I then saw a translucent “tunnel” of spiraling mist on the ground leading into the farthest tree line from me with shapes moving in both directions.

Upon getting back in the house, my girlfriend told me that I had been gone with the dogs for over an hour, of which I thought was maybe (15) minutes tops. At that point I looked at my watch and found it had stopped. During this entire experience, not one car past down the road, nor was there any police or Military presence there the remainder of the night. I have kept this event secret for years, along with the location; however I will give the exact location to MUFON.

Please note, I am more than willing to submit to any battery of polygraph testing, hypnosis and sodium pentothal to validate my statement.

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

Absolutely not!
