First of all I am an educated women, so is my partner and our friends. Some of us were non-believers and some were. While, some of us were frightened, some thought it was cool. We are just ordinary people that saw something extraordinary. Our age range is 18-58 and we come from many different racial, ethnic and financial backgrounds with an array of sexual orientations.

I was driving home from a meeting about 10:10 pm and my partner said what was that white streak that just passed over the car. I said what streak. I did not see anything. I said it must be a falling star. She said ok but I do not think so and she made a wish. We approached the house and we saw a white solid but with weird halo like object moving in front of us in the sky.

As we pulled into the driveway, we notice it was moving to the right of us. It was moving east towards the direction of NYC. After we parked the car and started to walk to the side of the house, we could see just a small portion of the white flat oval shape hovering between the treetops.

We proceeded into the house.

My partner had to go to the bathroom and I said I am going to go to the bedroom and look out the window. We live in a two-story duplex. We are floor two and three so we have a pretty good view of the top of tree tops.

When I went to the window, I got excited and called for my partner to hurry up in the bathroom; the object is outside our window. She came running in the room with her pants half pulled up and said oh, ((deleted)) it is a UFO. I ran to the closet and grabbed my binoculars.

When I look thru the binoculars, I could she the define white flat oval shape object moving back and fourth, moving and stopping on the drop of a dime. It also had blue/white, white/purple and white/red lights at the top and middle of the object. My partner grabs the binoculars and saw the same thing.

We were so excited and she started calling people. She called her sister but she was not home. She then called her job and the night crew was just getting off. She said, "there is a ((deleted)) UFO at my house get on the roof and see if you can see it. There are also helicopters and planes flying around it as well. Look in the direction of NYC and you should see it."

In about 3 mins. She called again, "Did you see it, No, and then come to my house. You have to see this. Come now."

She then called our friend and she said she was shopping at the food store but she would be there shortly. It had been floating, hovering, changing shapes and just moving around for 20 mins now. We kept asking the object to stay just long enough for our friends to see it. Every time we asked it to come back form behind the trees, it did.

At this point, I went upstairs to our daughter's room to get a different view. I could see it better from here. I could tell this was not blimp or plane. Then I started to chant a Buddhist mantra and the object got closer and began to change shape. It seemed to turn inside it's self and back out then it emitted a red beam. It was unbelievable. My partner was still at the bedroom window down stairs, she was also doing the Buddhist mantra and saw the beam as well. We both yelled to each other did you see that. It was incredible.

At this point, our friends arrived. It was about 11pm. Everyone ran to a window, upstairs or down stairs and could not believe their eyes. They took turns trying to figure out what it was but nothing man-made made sense. We watched it for another 25mins then it went behind a tree and did not come back. We could still she the other aircrafts flying around the object but not quite approaching it. By the time our friend that was shopping made to our house. It was gone.

((NUFORC Note: We will invite the other witnesses to the alleged event to submit reports, as well. PD))
