Location: Germantown, NY
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
Very large, bright stationary light seen over Hudson River near Saugerties/Kingston, NY smaller lights flying toward it after a time.

At 7 pm in Germantown, NY, when looking south I saw a VERY large light, with beams emitting from it that were VERY bright standing stationary in the sky over the Hudson River. It looked to be above the Kingston/Saugerties, NY area. It was a steady light that just hung in the sky.

I watched it for 10-12 minutes and then saw smaller lights headed right to it. There were 3 or 4 of these smaller moving lights (which I thought were small aircraft). They were moving like regular airplanes with flashing red lights.

After 3 or 4 more minutes the huge light disappeared behind cloud cover (the clouds covered it). The smaller lights flew into the clouds and I lost sight of them. I went into my house after a few more minutes and locked my door.

Then returned to the windows a couple of times to see whether I could see this phenomena again. I could not. The cloud cover remained until I went to sleep.

A little about me: I am a highly competent retired woman, living alone next door to my daughter. I have lived in Germantown, NY for almost 10 years. I have keen eyesight, do not drink alcohol or imbibe any other substances aside from coffee and tea. I am 75 years old and lead a busy and rewarding life.
