|Numerous objects w/flashing red & blue lights on either side of a white light silently gliding through the night sky.
At approxmately 8:15pm while washing dishes, I saw a light in the sky through the windowindow over my kitchen sink. Then right behind it came another light and then another. I went out onto our back deck and these three lights slowly (it seemed) glided silently and circled back over the trees. After a few minutes, they came over the trees again and two arched to the left and one to the right until they were out of my range of vision. I ran upstairs to get my sons's binoculars and went back out. Again two white lights this time came over the trees and throught the binoculars I could make out blue and red lights on either side of the white light (which was in the middle). Again they went over my house and out of my view. This Friday we had sudden and violent storm activity and as it darkened, there was periodic clouds and clearing. After the 3rd time, there were two-three more sightings-always in sets of two or three. Because it was dark, I could not make out the shape, but could through the binoculars see the blinking of the blue and red lights on either side of the white light. During this span of time, I called the State Trooper barracks in Wurtsboro to find out who I could report this to and they gave me the # for the FAA in Newburgh-I tried several times but it was always busy; I also called our friends the next road over from us being the lights went in that direction and asked her to go out and look; I grabbed my Kodak "throw-away: camera and took as many pictures as was left on it but haven't had it developed yet. Unfortunately, my husband was at a meeting that night and didn't get home until 10:30pm. At some point during the night or early am, I awoke because the house and my bed was vibrating. It felt like a tremor and stopped shortly after and I fell back to sleep. The next day (Saturday), my friend called to say she didn't see anything when she went outside the night before but there was an earthquake further upstate. The newspaper reported a 5.2 quake in Jay, NY, and that two years ago on th! e same d ay in the same place (Jay, NY) there had been an earthquake of approximately the same magnitude. I do not believe this was a coincidence. In last Monday's newspaper there was an article that a man in Pine Bush (the next town over from me) videotaped a "ufo" he saw "early in April" (the paper did not give the exact date). Amazingly, when I shared this information with my family members, friends, and co-workers I was surprised how many believe that there is intelligence "out there". To say the least, I am astounded by all this and every night since my sightings I go out on my deck several times to look up into the sky. Also, since that night we have had numerous fast and sometimes furious storm activity. Thank you for letting me document this episode with you.
