my name is ((name deleted)) y and i live in bayridge on 3rd ave and 71st. today was a day that changed my somewhat skeptical mind to a believer. if i was to hear the story that i am about to tell, i would think i was fu**n crazy!!! Sunday, July 2nd, 2006 around 6:30 - 7:00 pm a storm was coming in, i went to go close my window and i glanced in the sky a few hundred feet over the building across the street and seen what i thought was a hot air balloon and thinking what are they nuts!?!? flying a balloon in Brooklyn? in a storm? then i got a better look as it flowed towards me and realized, holy $h#* what is that?!?!it was triangular in shape, but reminded me of a stingray fish. very aero dynamic, it was porcelain white in color very shiny, had a bright orange glowing border, and a metallic sphere orb attached at the center bottom of the craft. turned on it side slowly hovering back and forth carefully. all of a sudden a bolt of lightning came sideways from a cloud and hit the metallic sphere. in an instant it made a air burst sound, completely turned bright red orange, then gone. at first i thought it exploded so i kinda jumped back. but it just like magic, disappeared. i freaked out because i always imagined if i did see one, it would be at night, all the way up in the sky flying around with lights. never would i have expected it to be this way. i mean broad daylight, just above the buildings. and i seen it if it were the size of a baseball! right in front of my eyes! everyone should have seen it, it was very large and right there!! i can't sleep. i can't stop thinking about it. i can't stop going to the window out of curiosity. i was afraid to tell anyone for the reason of people thinking im on drugs, or am just crazy! that's what i would have thought! thank god my girlfriend heard the sound. later on around 10:00 pm i went to the store, i look up in the same area, and see a white orb floating very slow and straight towards the gowanas. i said this can't be! i shook my head and convinced myself it was a bird or something. then i look again and see a black orb leading 2 more white orbs in a triangle formation and said i must be going crazy!. i walk fast toward the pizza store and the guy asked "you ok?" i said no but if told you i would just be a nut so forget it. the guy said i tell you something people think im crazy that last week i saw a ufo in bensonhurst. i almost had a break down and got this feeling of being in like the twilight zone or dreaming. this cant be happening i said. i told him that is exactly why i am freaking out. so he tells me to tell his friends at work the story i just explained and they all look real scared. they say word for word it was the same story except for the lightning hitting it. and for a week they were all abusing him about it. so we basically felt a huge sigh of relief. says that his brother seen it as well but did not hear the noise he heard which was strange and could tell that confused him the most. so i go home bugging out and just see and search google not expecting anything to come up, but to my surprise i was not the only one. very similar stories and descriptions all over. my gut tells me it is dimensional. like beings from other dimensions or something. i mean the way it just flashed gone!! like a light switch. the craft honestly was beautiful! perfect! floated like a balloon. like it weighed nothing. i think it was searching for the lightning to give it that charge boost or refueling. it was just moving in a way that it seemed to like get the right spot. like fine tuning a radio station. or harpooning a fish. what i saw was surreal. i mean right there!! in front of me and my eyes! in real time! wow i can't stop picturing it! it all happened in like not even 1 minute which seemed like 10 min. i was speechless and in shock at the moment. lost for words. and was shaking like a leaf. never would i think i would be one of those people who had a story like this to tell. now i am one of the so called crazy ones. all i have is my sketch of the craft and in my view is a very good one. i know i will always be lookin in the sky from now on. its not the question anymore if they really exist, but what does earth, or the 3rd dimension do they seek or need. and is the goverment involved? because now i do reserch and see that there are hundreds of sightings per year!! and we deny them. are they here to help, or destroy? too many questions i now have and definitly wont be sleeping tonight! wow is all i keep saying. for the records i got this impression, or feeling that they or it knew i saw this. for what ever reason. hands down the most shocking thing i ever seen. this exp. made me a skywatcher.
