Location: Atlantic City, NJ
|We just witnessed an object off of Atlantic City New jersey that seemed to have split into five or six pieces within a split second or two. I have operated commercial sea clam vessels off the Atlantic coast for many years and I have never witnessed anything like this. My house overlooks Atlantic City and I enjoy the views with a set of surplus Russian boarder patrol glasses. I am sure of what I just saw and so is my wife. The speed that this object moved was incredible, my glasses are equiped with range finders and I can tell you that nothing that I know of can move like that. About ten minutes after we sighted the object there was a very large tremor that we experiened.
Thanks for your time

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone. He is an extremely experienced observer, we believe. He later reported that an FAA employee had informed him that the lights were part of an exercise by the U. S. Air Force. We cannot confirm that latter fact.
Please see similar report from the Kokomo, IN, area for the same date. PD))
