Location: North Bergen, NJ
Shape: Light
Duration:about 5 seconds
white and green lite hovering 20 or 30 feet over head. then ziipped away and disapeared after 3 or 5 seconds

this looked like a small light. Like a star only flying about 20 or 30 feet over our heads. I was with my wife and just parked my car by North Hudson (Braddock Park). As we were walking to our apartment we both saw this small light over our heads hovering and then zipped away like a shooting star. Only it was too low and was impossible that it could be a star. We bothed looked at eachother, and were like, "did you just see that?" We debated on what it could have been. I began to explain that I had seen something similar two times before.

The first time I saw something similar was in my a car with my friend. It was about 1997 or 1998. We we going down 48th street in Weehawken, NJ on Blvd East that leads to River Rd. We both saw a green light same hight above, (20 or 30 ft), only the ligh was green. The light looked like those firecrackers that shoot up and pop but this hovered and then zipped away exactly like it did with my wife and made no noise.

I saw it again in about May or June, 2008 riding bike with the same friend by the Palisades up by Edgewater, NJ. We had stopped to look at the N.Y. City skyline after riding up the long hill and both saw the green light hover and zip away.

I have never thought of reporting it because everyone takes these reports as a hoax. I decided to report it after someone mentioned to me that there have been hundreds of reports in this area especially right by my house in North Hudson Braddock Park. I have always known it to be 80th street park.
