It was just an ordinary evening when a Hudson Valley family witnessed a disk shaped object in the night.
It was early April 1994 in Cortland Manor, NY. It was about 10 p.m., Emily, her mother and five siblings were watching television.
“All of a sudden there was a loud humming sound, the house started vibrate.” Emily recalls, “Fearlessly my older sister Louise went outside to see what it was.”
What Louise saw was a disk shaped object hovering just about the tree tops. After a quick glance Louise called her mom and the rest of the family to come outside.
“All you could see was the outline of the object over the night sky. Then suddenly the disk shaped object began emitting green and red colors.”
Excited, mom ran inside to get the video camera but couldn’t quickly put her hands on it so she returned outside for fear she’d miss the amazing event.
The family just watched the object put on a colorful light show for another five of ten minutes. Then the disc began moving slowly at first then faster and faster upward and away from them. Moments later three fighter jets in a “V” formation streaked overhead toward the object. With the object gone, the family went inside. Emily’s mom called the police to report what she had seen.
“Before my mom could finish her description of what happened the officer on the line said, that the lines were flooding, but everything’s alright, the Air Force called and said that they were doing a test.”
At the time Emily’s mom and the family accepted what the police officer had told them.
Many years later Emily began remembering the event and talked to her sisters about it. What bothered Emily was the fact that all of them had accepted without question what the police and the Air Force had told them that night in 1994, about the event just being a “test.”
What troubled Emily, was the fact that all of them never gave a thought to the idea that that normal aircraft don’t hover and they’re not circular.
“Now I really wonder what it really was we all saw that night.”
Let’s look at some recent sightings in New York Skies:
28 September 2014: at about 11 p.m. a White Plain, NY motorist was driving on the Taconic State Parkway and saw a huge rectangular shape object with no wings flying in the opposite direction. He estimates that it was six times larger than a commercial airliner.
29 September 2014: at about 10:30 p.m. a resident of Orchard Park, NY observed a large triangular shaped object flying north/northwest over Orchard Park. The triangle was flying noticeably faster than an airplane and certainly much larger. It was last seen heading north.
30 September 2014: at about 6:45 a.m. a Queens, NY resident saw two slow moving black circles – balls shaped UFOs. They stopped and changed directions.
1 October 2014: at about 8 p.m. a Brooklyn, NY saw an undulating orange light traveling from the north to the south east.
1 October 2014: at about 9:30 p.m. a Baldwinsville, NY resident observed an orange glowing light slowly moving across sky with a conventional aircraft pursuing it.
3 October 2014: at about 8 p.m. a Brooklyn, NY resident saw a long green tail alternating fireball, not lasting 2-3 seconds, moving left to right going south.
4 October 2014: at about 9:30 p.m. a resident of Colonie, NY witnessed bright red and green light that moves around but generally hovers in the same place.
7 October 2014: at about 8 p.m. a resident of Ronkonkoma, NY observed three circular looking craft over the Long Island Expressway near exit 59. The objects were arranged in a triangular formation, with two objects in perfect alignment and one slightly out of alignment, to form a lopsided triangle.
Immediately following this event, helicopters could be seen and heard circling the area.
If you have a UFO sighting to report, you can use either one of the two national database services: www.NUFORC.ORG or www.MUFON.COM – Both services respect confidentiality.
