Reported: 7/17/2003 2:26:37 PM 14:26
Posted: 7/23/2003
Location: New York City (Manhattan), NY
Shape: Disk
Duration: 8-10min?
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Light blue diskshape with a blinking red light on bottom above east river.

My dad was on the roof of our building and he saw a weird object flying on the sky, he used his cell to call me and told me to go up to the roof. Our building is located at midtown manhattan and when i went up we saw a light blue disk with a dome. it was somewhat tilted about 30 degrees and there was a small blinking red light on the bottom. it moved steadily and slowly from left to right above the river and then it went behind the building so we lost sight of it. my dad saw it first so i am not sure how long it stayed on air but i probably spent 4 min looking at it.

it could very well be a blimp because it was pretty big but i have doubts because it didnt have any writings on it, it had a disk shape, it was tilted, and it was lit up in a weird way--glowing in blue. if it was lit up like that its hard to believe why they dont put advertizing on it.
