We were crossing the Newburgh Beacon bridge.The river use to be crossed by a ferry.The sighting It started on Hudson River, Newburgh side zooming toward Mt. Beacon (we use to go up to the top of the mountain where George Washington had canons set up. It was a strategic look out.) It seemed to be going up the river like toward West Point Military Base .Hudson Valley Dutchess county is an area of small cities.

Full Description & Details

We were coming from Newburgh, my sister was driving,my cousin and myself. It was night time around 10pm in the summer. When we saw a circular brilliant bright ring of lights (lime green may have been one color) hovering over the Hudson River near the bridge. We thought they could see us however we could not identify what that thing was. At the wink of an eye it took off with blinding speed. We all yelled " Did you see that" All in disbelief until the music of the local radio( k104) station stopped playing because so many had called in with the same report. It was at that time we knew we had witnessed an UFO! Beacon for me had always been a mystery that I have never been able to explain! Mt. Beacon especially in my younger years when the incline still operated. Amazing.

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

no

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Nothing at all we were young and had never heard anything of the sort. It was not until about a week ago I was on a site and it mentioned the Hudson Valley with the likes of Stone Hedge and Sedona AZ that I became intrigued..
