From bedroom window, I observed a strange object moving too fast to be a jet or plane at such a high altitute en route to Westchester County Airport (HPN) or La Guardia (LGA). The object, exhibiting a few different bright colors, seemed to stop, hover, then move up and down before disappearing completely. The unacceptable movements of the craft are what keep me so skeptical. A westchester county newspaper the following business day reported that a stealth bomber was on routine post 9/11 patrol lit up for Christmas. I, however, cannot believe this report as again, the craft was moving in such ways that cannot be explained by our modern day aircraft. I can accept that perhaps it was a harrier jet, but I do not know which alitute hovering limitations the jet has.
