2014 – A Formation of UFOs over CNY

Thomas stayed up to watch the 11 O’clock news; he never expected to witness a formation of UFOs instead.

It was early October 2014 in Mexico, NY. Thomas was getting ready to watch the 11 o’clock news before heading to bed. Suddenly the apartment he lives in began to shake with a rumbling sound. The sound was familiar to him; it was the sound of a military helicopter.



1954 – V Formation of UFOs

Who knew that on a lazy summer’s evening, a Long Island family would witness the V Formation of UFOs.

Harry and his parents lived in Oakdale, NY in the Great Neck river valley area. It was about twilight in mid-July 1954 and Harry’s dad was finishing some yard chores. Young Harry’s mom had just called him in the house to get ready for bed. He tells us that he’d only been inside for a few minutes when his father “burst” into the house yelling, "Everyone come outside quick you have to see this!”



Chevron UFO over Manhattan

Who knew a little star gazing would yield a chevron UFO!

As New York City dwellers, Claudia and her 13 year old son both enjoyed a little star gazing. It was late October 2004, and this night was special: there was going to be a lunar eclipse. So mother and son made an extra effort to see nature’s show. They went to New York’s Central Park in a place near Strawberry Fields.

Fireworks and UFOs

Who knew playing around with some bottle rockets would result in Fireworks and UFOs

Richard was eight years old back in 1983 in his home town of Hopewell Junction in Dutchess County, NY. It was early evening on June 28, Richard and a couple of his friends were shooting off some small fireworks in preparation for the upcoming 4th of July display his family was planning. Of course his parents were supervising the boy’s activities. They had just tested some bottle rockets and with the help of his dad were prepping some skyrocket mortars. They had just tested a couple of the rockets when something strange happened.
