i know what i saw

It was a dark night because there was no moon. A friend and myself were walking to her house around 10.pm from the house of another friend. We turned down a side street and thought we saw a plane flying very low we moved into the middle of the street to get a better look. we thought this was a plane because we saw lights (lights like that were pretty visible then because alot of the sidestreets had only 2 or so streetlights on them so there was alot of dark areas). we stopped walking, looked at each other and remarked to each other about how low that plane was flying, and how something must be wrong for them to be so low. we spoke for what had to be less than a minute or two. as we looked back up the lights were almost directly above us and hovering. it was oval shaped, black i think, with 3 lights in a semicircular shape, there were 2 sets and 2 rows of these lights facing each other. they were so bright. they were just so bright it seemed unreal. It must have been about the size of a large oval pool. i think that is what shocked us the most. that what we thought was a plane was so small and so quietand that while it was hovering it was sort of dipping from side to side kind of like a small boat on choppy water, not like it was going to flip over or anything i don't think. just like choppy water movement. my friend and i looked at each other again for what seemed like an hour, and ran in different directions. we finally caught up with each other, and made it to her house. no one believed us. even now, today no one believes me. i don't speak to that particular girl very much anymore we both went different ways in life. but any time i see her we both end up talking about it. we know what we saw.

((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the two witnesses might have observed the object allegedly seen by dozens of witnesses from the Staten Island Ferry at 22:08 hrs. on Friday, September 15, 1995. The object reportedly rose out of the water and remained suspended beside the ferry, and then moved off. We have spoken with three witnesses to the latter event, and a video tape has been made of the event. Witness elects to remain totally anonymous, and provides PD))
