|The MADAR Op's wife was a lifelong skeptic and her object was an unmistakable UFO, She had taken one of the dogs out a few minutes before the event and was startled to see a bright green light that was coming toward her out of the west for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes, then anomalistic motion where the light suddenly jumped to the left (which no airplane or anything else can do), then jumped to the right, stopped, then just flat disappeared. None of the dogs in the neighborhood barked. There was no MADAR alert at this time, and the field readings didn't show anything anomalous. Newburgh's node 142 has a threshold shield of 27 and the field readings never exceeded 7.5 milligaus, which explains why 142 didn't "trigger". The accelerometer readings were normal but the compass heading numbers from col. 3 varied more than 3 degrees. In fact almost 5 degrees. At 4:08 the data shows a 221.14 degree reading. Three or four minutes before her sighting, something was di! sturbing the geomagnetic field. It is my opinion that had the UFO gone vertical, MADAR would have shown a spike in the field 2-3 times normal but still probably wouldn't have triggered the device. Also, if 142 HAD gone into alert, the data rate would have jumped to once per second, but the status rate is one line per minute "under trigger". Two of the ReoLink skycams had been offline for months and the two that were running were aimed east and south.The west and north cams were not online. A few days later the cameras were pulled and the west and north were found to have been destroyed by moisture leaks at the lens. (MADAR Operations Center).
