Location: New York City/Staten Island, NY
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Last evening at exactly 8pm, myself and my landlord witnessed a bright white light moving from a southeastern to northeastern direction. We live directly in the flight path of JFK and LGA and can easily distinguisgh what is a jet or plane from a helicopter and so on..in addition I served at Otis Air Force Base in Mass. and surely what we saw last night was no aircraft..Firstly, it's altitude could not have been more than a 1/2 mile up, and it was traveling quite slowly...being where we reside in the Emerson Hill area we are located on one of the highest points in S.I./..

this object was emitting a singular bright white light, had no port or starboard blinking lights and no tail lights..in addition it made NO sound whatsoever !! We watched it fly right over the house and then up the coast .. This is the 2nd event in the last month the other being what appeared to being 3 satellites moving faster than anything we've ever seen.. all moving in exactly the same trajectory and at the same distances away from each other again moving in a northeasterly direction.

The object we saw last evening was no aircraft..we don't know what it was and have been unable to receive help from the FAA, Coast Guard or local media.

((NUFORC Note: The three satellites probably were the U. S. Navy NOSS satellites, which are reported to NUFORC frequently. The object on 28SE02 could not have been the International Space Station, which passed over New York City at 19:55 hrs. on this date. PD))
