Duration:5 minutes
On the evening of July 10, 1998, I was walking near my home in Brick, NJ when I spotted an object approaching in the sky. It moved slowly, and never changed speed or direction. It seemed to be about 1000 feet in altitude and moved over me traveling toward the South East around 8PM. I watched for more than a minute and it appeared larger than a traffic red light but smaller than a golf ball at arms length. It had no wings or fins. It was saucer shaped and somewhat rounded or spherical. One side was very dark, perhaps black. The other side was brightly lit. The sun had set but it was still very light out. The sky was clear, no clouds. There was nothing hazy or fuzzy about the sighting. The ship was very plain to see and it looked like a solid object just like a house or car or any other object. It might have been as large as a house. I am not sure of the size. The UFO rotated so the bright side and the dark side became visible during each rotation. Each rotation was about 2 seconds. It did not rotate on any axis you might normally think of. It just tumbled along. The light it gave off was very bright but not as bright as looking at a 75 watt light bulb. The light was white but as it rotated, sometimes I could see a bit of red. I was alone. I called the local police and the Asbury Park Press to see if anyone else reported it and the answers were negative. This was a very unusual object. I called the small local airports, nothing. Last summer, I and a neighbor, saw a blinking object go from horizon to horizon in 3 to 5 seconds. Since then, he said he saw it 3 more times. I thought the blinking might be a strobe, at that time. The blinks were elongated into streaks. Now I am wondering if these sightings were of the same object. The July object if traveling fast could have appeared to streak because the light was rotating and sometimes faced me and sometimes did not, like a rotating beacon. As I watched the July object, I became aware of many many little spots in my vision dancing around. I looked away and saw from the object into the clear sky and little spots were dancing all over my eyes. I continued to watch the object until it was out of sight. A short time later, I realized that the little spots were all gone. I had never seen spots or little dots before or since. I am a 55 year old Electrical Engineer and I work for the Government. This object just defied gravity as it floated along, slowly rotating. I wonder who it belongs to and what it is doing. Our Government knows a lot more than me and I know what I saw so I am wondering what the Government knows. I am wondering why they are so quite on this subject. I am inclined to think what I saw was not part of a black project. I just want to know what the Government knows about this. I want to know if our Government has any knowledge of these objects or if ETs are working with us. I got a good look at this thing and it was a solid object. I don't mind talking about this but I don't want to receive any spam/e-mail as a result of this report. But, please feel free to contact me if you want further information. I have had to change my ISP because of spam that probably had roots in my postings to newsgroups on other subjects. Since I have changed ISP several months ago, I don't get any spam and I want to keep it that way. Just don't cause me to get any spam and I'll be happy.
