Full Description & Details
I order Phil Imbrogno's book, Night Siege.
I wondered if Phil remembers me. I too saw the boomerang-shaped object on Interstate 84 near the Taconic Parkway in the 80’s. I saw Phil’s name in the newspaper back then (a few days after I saw this) and I contacted him. It was sometime in the mid-80’s and around June or July. He invited me to a meeting with other witnesses, I think, at Brewster (NY) High School but I was leaving for vacation that day and couldn’t make it so I mailed him my notes and drawing.
I was coming home (to CT) after visiting relatives in Beacon NY. (I can’t recall the exact year now.) I was on I84 eastbound between Exit 15 (Lime Kiln Rd) and the Taconic Parkway when I caught site of this huge object coming near me from the North. I watched for about 60 seconds and then pulled off the road (about .33 mile before the Taconic). I climbed up a hill to watch this thing fly directly over my head. It was huge and the underside looked a bit like the Close Encounters movies’ craft.
I too felt I could have thrown a rock and almost hit it but I knew it was out of reach. It seemed to stop or slow down as if it had seen me and was watching to see what I might do. (I thought to myself that if I had had a camera and taken a picture that this object might have swooped down and picked me up.) So, I stood there for about 5 minutes and watched it…it was like it was “saying”: “Yes, that’s right, we’re letting you see this, just don’t do anything to make us mad”. It had very little noise…a low hum and it was moving very slowly.
It then continued to travel south just to the west of the Taconic. Then, when it might have been over Philipstown, I saw the far light on the left of the triangle break away and start flying all over the sky, very wildly, for about 1 minute…then, all of a sudden, it streaked (in an instant) in a perfectly straight line back into the same spot it had been.
I then went to get back in my car and I noticed a few other cars (heading West bound on 84) had pulled over to the side. I think I was the only person who had gotten out of his/her car.
As I got to the intersection of 84 East and 684, I looked in my rear-view mirror and saw this huge white thing coming toward me. It was very big and higher in the sky. It was all silver and brilliant white and didn’t have the boomerang shape (it’s hard to describe the shape….maybe like a child’s spinning top…and all “sparkly”). When I saw this I was a bit scared because I thought that maybe, because it had allowed me to see it up close, it was coming back for me (for some reason). I picked up the pace and drove home.
When I got home I told my wife and then wrote down all I had seen…I also drew the shape of the boomerang with red, white and green lights. I then called my father who was working at Stewart Air Force Base and told him what I had seen and to let me know if anyone at Stewart said anything about it. He later said no one said anything but he had seen an article in the paper.
In closing, I never saw it again…and over the past 20 years, I’ve traveled the same route hundreds of times…most times at night. Did Phil include my info in the book?
