Mom and I witnessed a white light in sky descend and vanish within a second.

My mum and I were driving north on the New Jersey turnpike at 9:30 at night. We were approaching exit 8 near Monroe township when I, sitting in the passenger seat, witnessed a bright blue-white star-like shape descend rapidly from the sky and disappear a second later.

I immediately asked her if she saw that to which she responded, "Yes. I didn't want to say anything because I thought it was a streetlight or something."

It clearly was not a streetlight as it was well above earth. The star-like object was about 50-60 degrees from the horizon when facing north. It appeared stationary until it rapidly began to fall towards the horizon and disappeared at around 30-45 degrees. There were no clouds in the area.

The entire event lasted only a second or two.

We quickly ruled out a falling star as there was no visible tail. Also, it was too bright and far too fast for it to be any sort of aircraft, commercial or military. If it was an airplane then it should h! ave been visible until it went over the horizon but it simply vanished.

The only conclusion I can make is that it is indeed a UFO. It was unidentified. It was flying. And it was an object. Alien or not, who knows. I just hope other motorists may have witnessed the same thing.
