UFO Sighting Report


June, 7, 2013


Ridge, New York, United States


At about 2100 hrs(EDT), I looked from the front yard of the house towards the backyard and noticed a bright, whitish/blue object moving from a S.W. to N.E. path over the Long Island sound. I called my next door neighbor's attention to it and he made a joke until he realized that along with its purposeful motion, the object omitted no sound. It vanished over the tree tops out of our sight.

Date Reported:

8/18/2013 8:52:59 PM

Sighting Time: 

9:00pm, 11:00pm



No. of Witnesses: 



60-90 seconds

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Bright whitish/blue spherical(?) mass of light like in the remake of 'The Day The Earth Stood Still'. Pale glowing red, spherical(?) mass with a pale glowing red center.

Size of Object(s)

Too far for me to make a comfortable guesstimate, but I would guess greater than 30ft.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Too low for a satellite and higher than a commercial jet plane or cargo plane.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Wooded, suburban eastern Suffolk County, LI. Over five thousand acres of NY state protected pine barrens in close proximation to the Long Island Sound, Peconic River, Lake Panamoka and dotted with small woodland ponds. Close proximity to the former Grumman site and abandoned nuclear missile base in Rocky Point, NY and BNL in Upton.

Full Description & Details

The early evening of June 7, 2013 in Ridge, NY on Long Island were calm and cool in the lower 70s with a clear, starlit sky. At 2100 hrs, as my X-wife was leaving the driveway, I noticed a bright whitish/blue object through the tree tops looking towards the backyard. It was bright and I would guess maybe 1500-2500 feet off the ground, I thought it was too low for a satellite which appear as dim almost imperceptible floating spots of light among the stars. This object moved with a steady S.W. to N.E. flight path and it moved faster than a commercial jet aircraft, yet it was not in a hurry, but moved with purpose. Again, it made me no sound of any kind.

After grabbing my glasses from inside the house, going to the backyard deck, and then back to the front of the house, I called over my neighbor working in his garage. He made a mocking joke about 'end of days', but got very quiet when he realized that this bright object made absolutely no sound of any kind! It then vanished over the tree tops headed for New England across the Long Island Sound.

On July 14, 2013 at around 2300 hrs, from the backyard looking up in the sky towards the north, a glowing red object with a pale yellow center appeared just over the tree tops heading south and changed direction to the west(NYC). I thought it might be a lantern, but it made a deliberate change in flight path direction. It omitted no sound of any kind and was in sight for one minute before it vanished over the trees. There are no really good and very few viewing points on LI as there seem to be in other parts of the country. I cannot easily explain the objects I have seen, only that they were not, nor did they behave like anything I had ever seen in past experiences.

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

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

There are many UFOs sighted. How many of them are of extraterrestrial origin, controlled by intelligent life forms? It would suck if Homo sapiens were the 'only' 'intelligent' life forms in the universe as held by still many. Since 1985, I have held the view that ETs evolved on this planet many hundreds of millions of years after pathetic and limited human beings perished as all species before have only except by our inabilities to adapt ourselves to nature. UFOs are no more complex than a bicycle, powered and guided by their highly evolved occupants use of telekinesis. How does a bee know how to chew wood into a paste to build a complex hive that can withstand heat/cold, UV and is composed of beautiful, mathematically sexy hexacombs? I believe that ETs' 'technical' abilities are something that they have slowly evolved into over millions of eons of time, and for them is no more strange, or cumbersome than a honey bee's abilities to know what its life function is and how to build and sustain the technology that supports their specie's life. Further, if(IMHO)ETs are here studying Homo Sapiens; it is not because we are the fascinating, complex and beautiful paradox we imagine in our self centered orbit. I believe they are monitoring the human species as a pathologist or epidemiologist charts the progress of disease, planning a course of sensible action to save the patient. The patient in this scenario is Earth and all the rest of her children suffering under the dominance of Human over population and biocide. There is comfort in knowing that everything is temporary and one day Earth and her Children will heal.
