May 25, 2007 - Silver object with lights in the eastern sky hovering in NJ

The sky was clear and blue – a warm, sunny day, few clouds.

I was sitting outside on my front step and noticed an object in the sky, southeast.

I had been watching some planes overhead, and my first thought was that this object looked like something had fallen from a plane – it was silver and seemed to be “falling” in the sky. I kept my eye on it and as I focused on it, it appeared almost “M” or “E” shaped, but rounded - hard to explain. It then seemed to stop “falling” and seemed to hover in place for a bit, which made me think maybe it was some sort of balloon or some sort of toy or something. Almost like when you’re at the beach and watching people flying kites in the distance – how they just seem to hover and rock in the wind.

But then it moved again, and came more towards the northeast – that’s when I noticed blinking lights. I also noticed a plane seem to fly right over it. (We live near several airports here.) This is when I decided to run inside and get my video camera. When I ran back outside, I had trouble spotting it again, but I did manage to catch something on video as it lowered out of sight behind my neighbors rooftop.

I have to add - the little bit that the video did pick up did not look the same as what I had seen with the naked eye. On video, it appeared sporadic and quick, as a silver object, round in shape, seemingly jumping around until it disappeared. And it’s hard to catch on the video at all unless you go frame by frame. I’d say the whole “sighting” lasted about 5 minutes from the time I first noticed it to the time I ran outside with my camera and captured a few seconds of it on video.
