lights seen in central NJ night on 3/12/09.

On the night of 3/12/09 between 8:30 and 9:00 pm I was coming home late from work. It was overcast. I was heading in a western direction on US 1 (south). I was turning in a shopping center to go to Walmart when I noticed some red/orange lights.

At 1st I thought it was a plane until I noticed a similar set of lights underneath at an angle. They appeared to hover and then go back and forth. This was strange and no typical of a plane.

I took my new G1 phone and tried to take a picturng fore. It was dificult since not best camera. After taking several pictures, I spent some time looking for the phone case.

When I realized it was getting late, I decided not to go to the store,but get something to eat.But the place I wanted to go on the other side of the shopping center was closed so it mus thave been after 9 by then. I got back into my car and headed in other direction on route 1 to go to a fast food place.

I went to drive in window got my stuff and started heading back in western direction on US 1 south to 95 s toward my development. It was now at least 20-25 minutes since I first saw the lights. When I pulled in my devlopement Hopewell, NJ, the lights appeared closer. (Apparently, the sighting in the shopping center was at greater distance and the object(s) were actually closer to my home.)

When I pulled in my driveway, I again took pictures. When I looked at them I coulnt see any thing on the shopping center photos due to the distance. But 2 taken from my front yard show a bomber range or v-shaped object.

Based on the brightness of the lights at opposite ends, it appears the object was larger than a typical plane. There was no noise.
