UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Name: Stu

Location: Hillsborough, NJ 08844 United States

Date: Wed. 02/02/05 10:58pm eastern time

Approach Direction: North East

Departure Direction: South West then to South

Witness Direction: South West

Description: a small fast moving amber light moved from the highest point of my view south west across the sky for about a second paused for about a tenth of a second and changed direction about 30 to 45 degrees to the left(south).

Color/Shape: color:amber shape:to far to see, it just looked like a dot. the only thing that could go that fast and stop to change direction would be falling space junk that would heat up in re-entry then change shape, thus change air-flow around the object and making it change direction. But I'm pretty sure it was a ufo.

Height & Speed: Most likely in the upper atmosphere... if there's a way to calculate it, I was looking up at the sky at a 45 degree angle and it went across my whole view of the sky(half the sky) in about a 2 seconds.

TV/Radio/Press: Please contact me via e-mail, I would like to know all I can about it.

Follow-up information from Brian Vike:

Can you please describe the weather conditions at the time of the sighting?.

-- Cyrstal clear night, no clouds, I live in a semi-rural area so the is not much light pollution.

Describe the appearance of the UFO: shape, size, distance, color, texture, sound. (color I know you mentioned)

-- I look about the size of a star, so I would have to say it was round streaking dot. It looked very far up so It must have been large, bigger than a satalite. It was amber in color and made no sound.

Describe the area in which you made the sighting. Is it near an airport? An Air Force Base? A military or research installation of any kind?

-- There are only local airports both about 15 miles away, and I am good at identifying types of aircraft.

Were any aircraft visible in the sky while the event was underway ? Or just afterwards ?

-- No visible aircraft before or after the event.

Did the object leave a trail or have a tail following behind ?

-- No trail or tail.

Were you able to observe any debris falling from the object at anytime ?

-- No.

Were there any lights seen on it ? (have to ask)

-- The whole thing was a light and completly stuck out in the sky from stars due to the fact of it been amber and moving very fast. Just to add, I've seen comets and meteors before, and that's not what it looked like.

Were there any other witnesses that you are aware of that saw this ?

-- I was it, I was outside smoking a cig.

Thank you for your interest, I'm kind of weirded out by it, but It's one of the coolest things I ever saw.

[UFOINFO thanks Brian Vike & HBCC UFO Research for the follow-up.]
