Location: Watchung, NJ
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 20 seconds
Characteristics: The object made a sound
Cigar shaped object, reddish brown that hummed overhead with hieroglyphics like writing in Watchung New Jersey.

I grew up in Watchung New Jersey. I was about 8 years old and was playing outside after an early dinner.

I heard a low humming sound above me and looked up. There was a cigar shaped object hovering above about 300 feet up. It was cigar shaped, reddish brown in color and had no windows or lights that I could see. There were round rivets on the sides and writing that looked similar to Egyptian hieroglyphics. I looked in awe for about 20 seconds.

I ran inside to tell my mother. She was standing at the sink washing dishes. I told her to hurry with me outside, that there was a strange thing in the sky I wanted to show her. She took her time and finished the dish she was washing, dried her hands and came outside with me. It was gone...

I know this was a long time ago, but I will never forget this, because I was so dumbfounded about what this was.
