UFO Sighting Report - USA
November 1st 2008 : Northern State Parkway, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York
Northern State Parkway, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York Triangular UFO
Date: November 1, 2008
Time: Approx: 6:45 p.m.
Location: Near the Route 110 exit of Northern State Parkway, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York.
Shape of Object: Triangular with a white light at each tip and a duller off white light, different shape, offset from center in the middle.
Number of Objects: 1
It was about 6:45pm. I was sitting in bumper to bumper traffic with my car in Park on the Parkway. We had been there for some time. At this point in the road, Northern State is only two lanes so accidents tend to shut the road down completely.
I was about 150 meters east of the Route 110 exit on the Northern State on the eastbound side of the road. We had been sitting there for about ten minutes and traffic was backed up as far as I could see in front of me and behind me.
I was looking up at the sky. Long exposure "star trail" photography is a hobby of mine and the summer is no good for it because of all the humidity and I was looking to see if it was a clear night (I don't recall that detail, oddly enough).
I spotted it then. Heading from north to south, this triangular formation of lights was higher up. If I held up a half dollar coin, it would have fit tightly between all three lights. The object flew at a casual pace over the parkway and out of sight to the south. I actually lost it through the trees.
Oddly enough, I had never seen anything like that before. I had heard of such things but, never though I'd see one. I also was disappointed by the way it flew. It flew straight. I always expected things like that to rotate as they flew, like in the movies.
I'm familiar with aviation. This object had none of the appropriate or expected lights for a fixed wing aircraft or helicopter. I cannot say whether or not it made any noise, my car stereo was blasting but since no one else seemed to react to it, I have to assume this was the case - that it was silent.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
