Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Circular or Oval Two big bright lights (one on the upper right and one on the botttom left) A shadowy red glowing ring around the object
Size of Object(s)
I would have to say above the tree it was about 3/4 of the width of the tree top and about the same size height. It looked like it was right there, not far away at all, to us it looked huge.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Metuchen is a rural residential area, lots and lots of tree covering, we were coming down the street from an incline and a park area, so we had clearing above us to see above the trees at this particular area. We are a small town in New Jersey, it is only 2.5 square miles (we are surrounded by Edison). It was a beautiful night and the sky was so clear, there was not one cloud and you could see multiple stars. There are no power plants/industrial areas within miles of us.
Full Description & Details
I was driving down oakland avenue last night with my friend Connie. It was just around 9pm and the sky was completely clear (you could see multiple stars). We came to almost the end of Oakland Avenue right before Grove Avenue when above the trees we saw a huge object. It was such a shock to the both of us that all we could say was "what the hell is that" "holy crap" "what the hell is that". What we both describe the "object" as is the same and we both saw it for about 3-4 seconds. The object was directly above the tees and it was definitely close because we saw it as huge. It had two big bright lights on it (one was on the upper right and one was on the bottom left). We describe the shape as circular or oval and there was a ring around it that was a shadow looking red ring. Since we were very shocked at the moment, she kept driving, making a right onto grove ave. Then we realized that we needed to look at it again, but now the trees were blocking it. We went around the bock (behind where we thought the object was, on a hill). There was a clearing at the street in front of a church, we stopped, and saw bright lights (now they were pretty far), and then we both saw a flash of light for about 1-2 seconds that dissappeard from the middle before the bottom or top and then it was gone. We kept driving around the area to hopefully spot it again, but we had no success. For the rest of the night we were both very freaked out/confused not being able to concentrate on anything other than what we had seen. We hope that someone else saw this last night, I would not believe that no one else saw this, because of the size of it and how bright it was (and right in front of us)! We definitely cannot explain what we saw as anything that we have ever seen before.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
We both sat around talking about this incident last night, we couldn't stop thinking about it, trying to make any sense of it, but we could not. We know it was too low to be anything like a plane and it was just in the same place (not moving the whole time we saw it). We know the Giants blimp was seen ealier last night, but this was way too low for that and obviously not a big blue and white balloon. The shape of it was circular/oval and it was not the moon or sun. It was right in front of us, like we could almost touch it if we were tall enough, it was right above the tree tops directly in front of us. The lights were very bright and the shadowy red around it was very apparent. This did not resemble anything I have ever seen (both in person or even on TV).

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I am open to anything being possible, if I were to see a UFO, I would have a different image in my mind then what we actually saw. We could not describe the actual object's color, only the lights and the red ring around it. I watch Unsolved Mysteries all the time, and I am open to the possibilty to life outside our universe, I still wonder what happened at Area 51. Even though I am always open to the possiblity of it all, I never in my wildest dreams would have thought that I would see something unexplainable.
I would just like to know anyone else who saw this. Me and Connie would really like to talk to other because we know that only other who saw this could actually understand how we are feeling from this experience.
