|Lighted symmetrical "CROSS-HAIR LIGHT EVEN" Nov/2011
This event was reported to me by a relative on Thanksgiving Day, 2011. It is by a senior female of high reliability and standards yet she felt compelled to relate this observance to me because of it’s strangeness and visibility in the night sky. She also wishes to remain anonymous She took the dog out for it’s nightly walk at approx 945 pm EST. her attention was drawn to the south-east sky by a commercial jet on landing approach to Newark Airport, the sighting location is within the landing/takeoff patterns of Newark and she thought this was normal However, in the clear night sky she observed a LARGE "LIGHTED CROSS-HAIR" being formed in the SSE sky, the rays of this cross were razor sharp, thin, white and seemed to emanate from an unknown source (not Ground based) and when they converged at a center point in the sky they all WINKED OUT the same time , the process was repeated many times. The timing of the event was approx 10-15 secs with a brief interval between occurrences. They repeated at least 8-10 times as she walked back into the house as the cross-hair rays were still being formed, extinguished, and formed again and again.
From her telling this to me at Thanksgiving I took her out front of the house and she pointed out in the night sky where this event happened, it was high over water approx 50-60 degrees off the horizon SSE, and her statement of size was it was bigger than her hand held outstretched; it did not block it out. Since I cannot pinpoint this exact date on that week of Nov 2011 it seems that this event was high in the clear night sky, stationary and not of any terrestrial origin, advertising or aircraft production, it happened high over coastal water in the sky over southern NY but was viewed from Central NJ (Perth Amboy) location Anybody else ever see this type of light show event here or other parts of the country?
