Posted: 8/10/1999
Location: White Plains, NY
Shape: Formation
Duration: 15-20 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Saw a hugh object in sky with lights intermittently placed not making any noise traveling north in the night sky.It had no real identifying shape to it and was traveling very slow

I know this happened a long time ago but I will never forget the situation. I was a Police Officer on duty (now retired) with a partner in the car besides me when I looked into the nighttime sky and saw this hugh shape with lights spaced intermittently crossing the dark sky. No noise was heard and it was not like the shape of anything I had ever seen (flying) before. It seemed to have taken up the whole sky. Upon seeing this thing I brought it to my partners attention and when he witnessed it his spoken words were "oh man, don't get me involved with this". After little thought (realizing there would be many jokes and ridicule aimed at me) I radioed HQ's and told them my sightings. They asked my location and I told them same. They came back with a reply that they had gotten many other phonecalls from the same area seeing the same thing. They (HQ's) then said they had called the Westchester County Airport and was advised it was the Air Force. To this day I dont believe that. Not being involved with Airplanes or anything as such I know I have never seen anything like this object flying in the air or anything close to it in shape. It seemed to be the size of a football field. It seemed to have taken up the whole sky. Believing in what I saw I made an official Police Report on same. My partner would not admit anything for years, for what ever reason, until finally one day he started to back up my story and admit to what we had seen. I know this happened many years ago but I never told anyone (other than by mouth)and except for the written P.D. any Official manner. Thankyou
