To whom it may concern, I am reporting my sighting from last night October 30th 2011 appx. 5:00pm eastern.

I am a resident of Northern New Jersey and my power was out until late last night.

Though I have been eager to spread my news I was content and sure of myself and of what I saw and this will be an experience I will never forget. As i faced south east from my balcony on the 8th floor in Hackensack there were jets of some sort lining the sky as they normally do. This time they were grouped, 2 here streaming, 2 more there streaming and one far behind but all going farther south*. Then this bright dot appeared in the sky! from nowhere. Not from behind scattered clouds, not from behind the falling sun. From mid air it came, looking like a bright chrome/metallic round thing. No lights just an Orb, I'll describe it that way because it seemed to be glowing or in a constant state of shape-changing but never an obvious triangle or elongated shape, and rather than flying or propelling it would dim and re-appear what could be miles away. That's when I became amazed. It changed locations 5 times before disappearing for 20 minutes but then it returned. I think it would fade when other aircraft came around. This is a busy sky but my friend and I had never seen anything like this. My friend and I were smoking cigarettes, he was on his phone playing games and I gazed. I would love to tell more, I'm looking for other means of putting my sighting out there because it was real, breathtaking and definitely defied our science. No jet or earthly aircraft I've ever seen can move from two points so far apart, so quickly, and not ever seem to have twisted or propelled or anything. When it would move, it would dim, as if shrinking and when shrunk passed visibility it just appear somewhere else. After having watched it for more than 45 minutes, it got darker out, it moved farther east but did not dim anymore. This was about 10 minutes before total sunset. I was able to put a telescope on it (very amateur) and what I was able to focus on was something that looked like an Atom. 2 glowing yellow orbs that never detached, which seemed to move around this 3rd non moving yellow orb that was wrapped in a moving red octo-hexa type of box. That's when I started to think laser or some thing very Alien. Please record this sighting and inform me if anyone else saw what I saw. We couldn't have been the only ones with all that time the orb spent up there but then again, this is the eastern-city skies that no one really cares to gaze at. But i'm sure that whoever looked up at it would not be able to identify the object just like my friend and I couldn't. My friend was so scared that he chose not to continue watching. He went in and was silent. He did choose to look through the scope. I almost forced him to because I this couldn't go was obvious and really there.
