UFO Seen Over Atlantic (Ocean) on the same night as major new jersey sighting last year.

We were on our way to go fishing out of Sheepshead Bay, NY, about one hour out into the Atlantic. If I remember correctly, the boat left about 7:00 or 7:30 PM the sun had just set about one half hour prior to the sighting.

We were sitting on the front of the party boat up near the anchor. I had leaned back to look up at the stars and I saw a very large bright yellow/white light very high moving very fast towards the direction we were coming from. I then stated very loudly holy shi? there is a UFO and proceeded to point up at the object and about 10 or so other people saw the object and had about the same reaction that I did.

Well, after that we were able to see it for about 5 to 10 more seconds and we lost sight of it.

Well after that I had spoken of it only once or twice with my friends until I came across an article on flying wings on MSNBC today 08/05/2002 and that made me think of it.

Well that made me search for NJ UFO sightings and it turns out there were many other people who saw objects that night but none around the time of ours?

So I just thought I would let you know about what we saw.

Sincerely, ((name deleted))
