Duration:2 minutes
The shape was nothing I've ever seen with my eyes & the white emitting light was whiter than any white I've ever seen.

At approximately 3:30pm on Sunday May 14th, 2017, I glanced out my bedroom window looking toward the east. A strong thunderstorm had just pasted & I was looking at the gray clouds, which were an evenly tone gray. I suddenly saw a silver/gray object at about tree level looking out of my second story window. It was miles away. What caught my attention was its shape, color, movement and the light that was emitting from it. It was a saucer shape with a dome, it was large, large enough to get my attention from at least 5-10 miles away (I'm guesstimating). A very bright white light, a white I've never seen before, very bright, emitted from the underside of the object, as if it were an exhaust of light glowing on the underside, it wasn't a ray shooting downward. I looked for lights you see on planes, there were none.

The thing that really struck me was the way it moved...very smoothly, at a steady speed, faster that a plane, but not super fast. By the time I got my camera app up, it was behind the trees, I ran downstairs and outside, but there were too many trees.

I'm very curious if anyone else saw anything in the Central NJ, near the ocean side of the state today.
