EGG SHAPED OBJECT W/GREEN NEON TAIL OVER NEW YORK CITY EARLY JULY 2008

I WAS STAYING AT MY BOSS’S APARTMENT ON THE HIGH UPPER FLOORS IN A LUXURY BUILDING ON THE EASTSIDE OF MANHATTAN WHILE SHE WAS IN EUROPE. I WAS SLEEPING ON THE SOFA BED IN THE LIVING ROOM; IT’S A CORNER APARTMENT SO THE LIVING WINDOWS FACE WEST AND NORTH. THE LIVING ROOM HAS FLOOR TO CEILING WINDOWS. I GOT UP TO USE THE BATHROOM AT ABOUT 1:30, WHEN I WENT BACK TO BED I WAS TRYING TO GO BACK TO SLEEP SO I WAS WATCHING THE RED LIGHT BLINK ON TOP OF THE CON ED SMOKESTACK JUST TO THE NORTH OF THE BUILDING. THEN I SAW IT, A GLOWING BEIGE/CREAM COLORED EGG SHAPED OBJECT WITH A NEON GREEN TAIL BEHIND IT FLYING VERY FAST IN A BEE LINE JUST BEHIND THE SMOKESTACK BETWEEN THE TOP AND THE MIDDLE OF THE SMOKE STACK. AT FIRST IT DIDN’T REGISTER SINCE THERE IS A LOT OF AIR TRAFFIC ACTIVITY ON THE EAST RIVER AND LAGUARDIA AIRPORT IS OFF TO THE RIGHT. THEN IT HIT ME, IT MUST BE A MISSILE THAT WAS GOING TO HIT THE GEORGE WASHINGTON BRIDGE OR SOMEWHERE IN NORTHERN NEW JERSEY. I SAT UP AND REALLY THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO HEAR SOME HORRIBLE EXPLOSION. NONE CAME. WHATEVER THIS OBJECT WAS IT WAS MOVING SO FAST I COULDN’T FIND IT AGAIN.
