Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The flying orb appeared round, saucer-like in shape. It glowed very bright, sort of pulsated as it hovered high above, dodging through and around the few sparse clouds that shown on that bright sunny day. It moved extremely fast. And glowed as bright as the sun. At first I'm thinking this is impossible...there's the sun (which I consciously marked as a reference point), and here's this glowing orb whisking above in short quick bursts of speed, dodging in and around the few clouds in the clear blue sky.
Size of Object(s)
In my recollection, the flying object appeared to be the size of a fighter jet, although it was of a circular/saucer like shape.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Urban area, large, open outdoor shopping mall parking lot, slightly hilly environment.
Full Description & Details
I didn't have a camera with me on this day, yet I sure wished I did. I walked along the parking lot area of (then known as) E.J. Korvette's shopping mall and the first thing I heard was hundreds of car horns sounding off... Drivers were purposely blowing their car horns to bring attention to the event that was happening in the skies above. Between the huge outdoor mall parking lot, the people in the stores running out to witness the ufo, and the countless drivers riding along the connecting highways (i287, i95), there had to have been literally hundreds of people who witnessed this phenomena, yet no one has ever mentioned it afterwards.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
At first, you have to ask yourself if what you saw was a man-made object...or a shooting star, or something, yet this was not the case. And here's the downright corny thing about it...the very next day, and for a few days after, there were odd shaped blimps and hot air balloons flying over the same Port Chester area, as if the government was trying to pass it all off as some sort of gag.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I was and still am an enthusiast of sic fi movies and television shows, and have always been in belief that we are not alone in the universe. Yet this opened up my mind to an incredible experience which I thought I'd never see in my lifetime, yet I did.
I'm sure this incident was reported at the time it happened...with literally hundreds of witnesses that afternoon in the E.J. Korvette's open air parking lot, how could it not have been reported?! Hundreds of lives were changed that day.
