Weather or NOT a Balloon!!!

I can't believe I found this site! Anyways, This was so vivid that I can still see it. It was a fall day. The Yankees had just beaten the Dodgers in the World series game in La to go up 3 games to 2. We were outside shooting hoops in the driveway. Me, a couple of my friends and my Brother. I believe my Mother was inside at the time, I can't remember if my other Sister or Father were? Just over the tree tops heading in the direction similar to flight patterns of planes landing at Tweed New Haven airport was this disc shaped object with white rotating lights around the rim of it...Clear as day. It was maybe a few hundred feet or so above the rooftops of the homes. We lived on a dead end and it was a crisp cool autumn day. Not too many people were out, other than those at our home.

I ran inside to see if my Mother had heard our calls and looked out to see it. I fumbled for the phone and called information for Tweed New Haven. Once I called I asked them if they had been receiving calls about a UFO sighting. He blew it off stating that it was a weather balloon and the lights that I was seeing rotating were a messageboard saying "congratulations to the Yankees" for winning the world series! It was at that point, a young boy and avid Yankee and sports fan in general responded " The Yanks didn't win the series....they're up 3 games to 2"! The man...fumbled for words again and dismissed quickly saying they'll make note of the report. But not to worry!!!

((NUFORC Note: The 5th game of the 1977 World Series was played on Sunday, October 16, 1977, at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. We have amended the date above. PD))
