Another white blipping light object/orb.

At 4:30 PM, I was traveling south by south west towards Red Bank, NJ. I saw a bright dot in the sky moving and blinking intermittenly. I was in the car and the angle of declination would have been at about 50 degrees ahead of me and at a distance of 1 mile approximately. The object was blinking white and out, moving at first what seemed to be a gliding/floating movement (like a balloon), only to continue moving linear, heading east towards the Atlantic ocean (only 5 miles east). My wife who was in the car with me, DID NOT SEE, this object, even when I pointed out a building it was over as a point of reference for spotting it. Then the object 'blipped' and took off east and I saw no more of it after that.

I was going to write this incident off as just another incident (I've seen and reported objects before), until a friend of mine, 14 miles south and one half-hour later, reported to me the SAME EXACT INCIDENT. The same with 3 witnesses present and again, the one female present COULD NOT SEE THE OBJECT. We had a laugh about only the males being able to view the object, but then, this only adds to the anomaly and the fact that it was NOT a balloon or any material object that we ALL should have been able to witness.

Thank you for letting me share this event.
