UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York City
Date: 09/10/05 ~3:45PM-4:00PM EST
Approach Direction: From the west
Departure Direction: To the east
Witness Direction: Looking towards the north but pretty much all over
Description: You can find information in a page I made at http://cornershots.com/lights.html
Includes a picture
Color/Shape: 2 separate sightings approximately 10 minutes apart. First was a silverish object which disappeared and reappeared intermittently. Second was three lights one of which slowly changed from red to white and back.
Height & Speed: My best estimate of height would be approximately 50,000 feet? Sorry it's hard for me to say. Was travelling slowly towards the east.
Follow-up from Brian Vike:
Hi Brian, thanks for the follow-up email.
The group of three lights I saw hung around for quite some time. They were
moving east but very slowly. They were in my view for at least 10-15
The three objects moved as a group but independently - meaning they were
headed in the same general direction but not in any tight formation. The
distances between them varied as they flew. Again, it is hard for me to
speculate their speed and size because they seemed so far away. But if I had
to guess I'd say compared to my hand held straight out - they travelled a
hand's width every minute.
Here is a link to the exact area where I witnessed the objects.
This is a semi industrial area in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. John F. Kennedy
airport is approximately 12 miles from here. There were other planes in the
The 3 objects remained red for the most part. The 'center' one in the photo
changed from red to white and back again very slowly - the way a lava lamp
might. Does that make sense?
I will gladly grant fair usage rights for the photo on the HBCC website.
Credits and a link to http://cornershots.com would be most appreciated.
Update: At ~3:50pm EST today (9/18) I stepped outside onto the backporch
with my newly acquired 8x Bushnell binoculars. Note that this was almost exactly
the same time of day that I had my first sighting. Conditions were similar -
sun shining slightly to the southwest and for the most part a clear day -
very few clouds. Lo and behold what did I see - the same object I saw about 10
minutes before I noticed the 3 red objects (photo) last week. Holding my
binoculars up - it exhibited the same behavior - heading southeast and it
seemed to change shape. Forgive my description, but as far as I could tell
it seemed to change from a bright white circle into a thin red stick type
object. It did this about 5 times a minute again in that lava lamp type movement.
The red and white seems to suggest that this is similar to the objects I saw
last week. It's movement was quite slow and I was able to track it with my
binoculars quite easily. I wish I had a powerful zoom lens to photograph it.
I'd be willing to bet that if I stood in Brooklyn at 3:50pm tomorrow I'd be
able to witness the same object.
Given the consistent time and slow speed of the object, I'm leaning towards
some kind of manmade object - but who knows? You're the expert here. ;) I
hope the description I provided will give you some clue as to the true nature of
the object(s) I saw. Thanks for your help and for reading this super lengthy
email. Please let me know if you come to any conclusions.
