|STRANGE BLUISH---GREEN LIGHT.
We were driving back from a Chuch Service in Swainton, N.J., on the N.J. Garden State Parkway, going south, it was about 8:15 P.M., at about mile marker 15,that all of asudden there was a bright bluish-green light, that filled the entire front windshield of the van. We were all struck in awe, and after about 4 seconds one of us said, what the hell was that. There was no sound, like an explosion, that we could hear, and if there were, I am sure, that we would have seen maybe some reddish color before the bluish-green. There were seven of us in the van, but only five of us saw this event. The other two, were asleep. We continued talking about it all of the way home. We figured that maybe the light originated in maybe Delaware, cause as I said the ""LIGHT'', filled the windshield and it was away from us, I would say about 25 miles away, cause we were on a like straightawy on the parkway, and we could seen the outlines of the trees against this light. The trees are in the middle of the parkway and on both sides. The light did appear far off, but none the less it was there.
The next day, the driver of the van, called a friend of his, who has something to do with reporting either weather or news for a local newspaper, to see if he had heard of any type of story regarding what we saw. He said "NO", but suggested that we contact the United States Weather Bureau, for a event report.
The event of the sighting was: Wednesday, November 26, 2003 at approximately 8:15 P.M., at about mile marker 15 South on the Garden State Parkway, in New Jersey. The night sky was clear, and I would say, that visibility would be unlimited.
I am 53 years old and have never in my life ever seen anything like this.
The next day, Thanksgiving Day, I checked the local newspaper, and there was nothing in the newspaper, but we figured being that it was late, in the day, that the newspaper would not report it yet. I checked again the local newspaper of which is the Press of Atlantic City, New Jersey, and checked the entire newspaper twice and there was nothing about the "LIGHT''. The second time I checked the Newspaper was Friday, November 28th, 2003.
It JUST BOTHERS ME, CAUSE OF THE COLOR.
Thank you for your time and concern in this report of an LIGHT EVENT.
SINCERELY, ((name deleted))
