Sighting Report
Occurred : 9/8/2003 20:00 (Entered as : 09/08/03 20:00)
Reported: 9/8/2003 7:43:00 PM 19:43
Posted: 9/9/2003
Location: New York City (Brooklyn), NY
Shape: Changing
It is now 22:30 hours, and the object is still there. In the west end of Brooklyn, possible near JFK Airport. Planes were all over the area, they must have been aware of it's presence. As well as the airport tower. It is moving slowly in a tight range. There is one flashing light in the back end, another white light in the top center wavering or moving in a circular motion on the crown. There is an orange- redish color to it and also some blue in the light. It had an upward tilt in the front of the craft. It seemed to change shape as it went back and forth, or had an elongaded disk shape to it.

((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the object might have been a blimp. Many advertising blimps are reported from the New York and New Jersey area. PD))


I just wanted to comment on your response to my report of a sighting on 9/8/03 around 22:00, and the event was current. It was in Brooklyn NY. You suggest it was a blimp. I'm telling you it was not. I was close enough and I watched it for well over an hour. I have never seen a blimp maneuver like this and at the time I considered it an impossibility . A blimp that close would have been clearly distinguishable as such. Then there was the lights, which were very unusual but consistent.

Now I see you have posted another report of a sighting on the same night, about the same time in the same area. It was viewed from a different location. the description is very similar to mine. The time of the sighting is shortly after I left the area. "1min approx I saw a very large disk shaped object in the sky over N.Y.C.". I saw other witnesses where I was, but I have not seen other reports from my area.
