Description: Bowne Street is a highly populated street with approximately 20 apartment buildings, the highest being 8 stories. My wife and I were walking north and a woman was walking her dog coming towards us.

For some reason I looked up and this huge object with colored lights appeared in the sky and actually because of the height of the apartment buildings seemed to cover the whole sky. I turned to my wife and said what the hell is this? Of course she was not interested in looking up but the woman walking her dog also commented on what is that? It hovered and seemed to cover the whole sky and in a flash it was gone.

I have never mentioned this to anyone but my wife does recall that the dog walker also saw this. I believe that this could be the same sighting that was witnessed in Massachusetts as the description and the time were very similar.
