UFO Sighting Report


August, 21, 2013


New York, New York, United States


Red and green lights in a diamond formation moving across the sky, then stopping, changing directions, stopping and hovering again, this time for longer, before flying off again. Trying to remember if the lights ever flashed but I don't think so. Don't know if it was really a UFO, but it didn't seem like a chopper, couldn't have been a plane, and seemed too large and too high for a really big flying remote control toy.

Date Reported:

8/21/2013 8:57:35 PM

Sighting Time: 

9:40 PM



No. of Witnesses: 

just me


probably 40 seconds?

Size of Object(s)

No idea how large it was, as the sky was dark and it's hard to estimate how high it was, though if I had to guess, I'd say it was perhaps 15-20 feet across.

Description of Area / Surroundings

urban, but seemed to be hovering over Sara D. Roosevelt park, on Chrystie Street just 1-2 blocks south of Houston Street, more or less above the soccer field, before it flew westward out of my sight.

Full Description & Details

Around 9:40pm, I looked out my window to admire the beautiful (1-day post) full moon rising on a warm August evening, when instead what caught my eye were the big bright red and green lights in a diamond formation moving slowly and silently across the sky, seemingly only about 1/4 or 1/3 of a mile up in the sky. Then it stopped in its southeast trajectory, hovered for maybe 10", then moved northward for perhaps about 300 feet before stopping and hovering again for about 30". Finally it flew westward and out of my visibility, and while it could have been a helicopter, I didn't hear anything that sounded like one, and I haven't known them to have big bright red/green lights but no white headlight. Shrug... I'll probably never know!

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

totally open to (and tickled by) the idea of them, but never seen one. Know nothing about them, though I did have a tennis coach once who claimed he had seen a UFO land, and had interacted with aliens. I believe in them, but I didn't believe him, and decided he was semi-nuts.

Reported Sighting? 


Reported To: 

called 311, but they had no other reports and didn't seem to record anything officially; offered to transfer me to a police precinct but I didn't feel like taking the time to do so.
