Original Report:

Name: Richard

Location: Union City, NJ Right across the river from NYC

Date: 6/14/03 12:48

Approach Direction: south

Departure Direction: south west

Witness Direction: south

Description: I was in my backyard talking to my friend on the phone. At about 12:48 i looked up at the sky and saw this light that seemed to be just as bright as a normal jet plane. I didnt expect it to be anything special but i still stared at it. It seemed to be still in the sky and also didnt have any blinking lights like a plane would. Then i wondered. I still looked at it and it began to move. And it became dimmer and disappeared. it seemed to move maybe 1000 ft from it's original location. It also looked to be the equivelent height of a 100 story skyscraper. This light looked to be over the town of Jersey City or maybe Bayonne. It was in the sky for maybe 20 seconds. After i saw it, the phone died without a warning like cellphones usually do and it was right after i charged it and ever since, it dies all the time. Also i felt this weird feeling that almost made me cry.

Color/Shape: there was no visible color.

Height & Speed: it seemed to be 10,000 ft. and was still for 10 seconds then seemed to be moving at 300 mph and disapeared

TV/Radio/Press coverage: It wasnt


It was all white. The way i felt after i saw this was this eerie feeling like something is going to happen to me... something bad.. When it disappeared, it just blinked out.. Nothing strange came from the object, it was too dark to notice anything else. There must have been at least 3 planes in the sky relatively close... there are a lot of flights coming from LaGuardia, JFK, and Newark.. The phone died when the object disappeared. It must have disappeared about 5-8 seconds after it was being still in the air.... This should be able to answer your questions. If you have anymore feel free to ask me..

I would also like to add that I have never been this scared before ever, and that every time i think about it brings a tear of fear to my eye. This is the second UFO i have ever seen in my whole life.. Well thanks for emailing me..
