2015 UFO: A Cross-Shaped UFO

Columnist Cheryl Costa shares the account of a cross-shaped UFO seen in Yorktown Heights in Westchester County, NY

An attentive driver noticed a bright light who knew it would be a UFO.

This event occurred on March 31, 2015 at around 11 p.m. Louise was driving south on Somerstown Turnpike (State Route 100) in Yorktown Heights in Westchester County, NY. Suddenly, out of the corner of her eye, she noticed bright spot in the sky.

“The light was so bright that it literally took my attention and I immediately thought that it must be a UFO,” Louise said.

Rather than make a right turn to head home, she I drove further down Route 100 to get a closer look. As she approached the Muscoot Reservoir, she could see that the bright, glowing object was still there.

“It was just hovering on the left side of the reservoir,” she said.

She described the object as a cross-shaped UFO and that it looking like a giant “plus” sign.

“I’ve never seen a light like (it) before,” Louise said. “It was not blinking, twinkling like a star or like a satellite.”

She drove all the way to State Route 129, where she was just was about to pull over and study the cross-shaped UFO, but it suddenly vanished. She then stopped her car, got out and looked around the sky to view the object again, but to no avail.
