UFO spotted over Carteret, Linden, Woodbridge.

It was a diamond shaped craft but more of a V on one end. Hovering over Arthur Kill River, Carteret, NJ and between the Amoco Oil storage plants and the Elizabeth Consolidated Energy Plant. Object seemed to glow and hover about 500-1000 ft in the air (not accuracte). Lights were pulsating from orange to bright yellow and had no noise. Object seemed 6-8 times larger than the size of regular aircrafts flying through at their regular height.

Witnesses include about 80-90 people pulled over on the NJ Turnpike between exits 12 & 13. Carteret residents on the northern end of West Carteret and Carteret may have seen it.
