Full Description of event/sighting: Our first sighting was October of 2001, when we first moved to Hornby. About 10:00 at night, we noticed a strange orange glow in the sky out our back window. It was a stormy night out, with wind and rain. The light pulsed at about two second intervals over our back yard and adjoining field. As the light pulsed, there was a strange "sizzling" noise. We have never been able to explain the source of this light or noise, as there are no power lines present in that location, and nothing around this very rural area that could have caused this experience.

Since that time, over the past few years, we have noticed a variety of lights in the sky to the south of our home. We live in the flight path of a local airport (Elmira Regional) and so never paid too much attention until the past few months when we noticed the lights (sometimes one, sometimes three or four) seem to stay in one area. I always chalked the lights up to helicopters, given their ability to hover in one area. One night I was out, but my wife and kids were home and saw three of these lights, all white and twinkling lights" at each other. The night of the 19th of this month (December 2005), I saw a single light back there, and jumped into the car to see if I could locate it. Heading south down Pine Hill Road toward Corning, I was able to pull off the road and get out of the car to watch it better. This was the first time I had seen the light so close. It was in the south east sky, remaining stationary for about five minutes.

The white light coming from the front of it would brighten and dim alternately as it appeared to rotate. Then, it turned toward me and flew directly overhead in a northwest direction. I was able to watch it with my field glasses, and as it was fairly clear with some moonlight, could make out the dim shape of something that in the front looked like a Stealth. It had a central white light, with smaller red lights down it's wings. As it passed over me, I could hear a very quiet "whooshing" noise, much like a jet sound, but extremely soft. It then proceeded slowly off into the distance and faded out of my sight.

This thing has had this type of behavior for what appears to be a long period of time, and does not match the description of any airplanes that I am aware of, although I am no aircraft expert, for sure. What is out there has the ability to hover like a helicopter, but with no noise, and for several minutes at a time. And why the established pattern and length of time? What's with the multiple lights 'exchanging white lights.' Just looking for some answers to a mystery.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
