National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 9/20/1984 21:00 (Entered as : 09/20/1984 21:00)
Reported: 2/24/2005 7:16:10 PM 19:16
Posted: 5/11/2005
Location: New York City (Bronx), NY
Shape: Teardrop
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object

I was around 17 years old at the time, walking home down 153 street between Courtlandt Avenue and Morris Ave. with chinese takeout food. It was around 9:00pm and the sky was pretty clear.

From the corner of my right eye up on the sky I spotted some lights. At first because the lights were so bright, I thought it was some kind of fireworks, but the lights never disolved. Instead the object moved silently from north to south. My building where I lived is 14 stories tall, and the object seemed it was about triple the height of the building.

The large object had about 9 lights, 5 in the front almost in a octigon shape and the about 4 lights tailing it. All the lights moved as if the object was one. I got the impression it was one object. I was amazed, something that large, that close didn't make any noise what so ever.

I have seen blimps in the past, and you could hear them. This was no blimp. Also, a few months later, I saw on TV a home video that someone took showing the same craft I witnessed.
