|A craft high above earth's dome shoots off into space
Above the Long Island sound on the sand dunes of Long Beach sat about 17 people and I at around 11PM EST watching the almost clear night sky and connecticut.
As about 10 of us lye down watching the stars, we noticed a small white light moving slowly behind the clouds which I thought was a sattelite.
After a period of maybe 20 seconds of looking at it, a huge flash emerged from it and around it which light up a good portion of the sky, and reflected off the water as well, being very bright, then immediatly shot off to the upper right and dissappeared. 10 of 10 people agreed it was not a shooting star. 7 people agreed they had no explaination for it. 3 of us non-UFO skeptics including myself agree it had to be a UFO. Inside of that, my friend works for the US Coast guard and informed me 3 nights ago that on August 8th when he was on duty, him and several other coast guard officials got a report of a "plane with no wings" was heading there way. He stated it flew over head very fast, apparently plunged into the water and shot out to sea. He stated some form of the government came hellicopters and all and ordered everyone off the beach, park rangers, by standers, police officials, and the coast guard. Every police station was ordered to destroy every report they received about an "Unidentified Flying Object". It was ironic because I was telling this story to my friends when we saw what we saw.
