New York UFO prompts calls to the police

Residents of New York City dialled the emergency services after seeing a UFO on Saturday night.
The Big Apple was awash with UFO sightings during the weekend after a strange glowing orb-shaped object was spotted in the sky over the city. Some locals were so concerned about the what they had witnessed that they picked up the phone and called the police.

One woman reported seeing a "flying spaceship" which moved over East 149th Street and the Bruckner Expressway. Another witness, 57-year-old Juan Marrero, claimed to have seen a fireball and two bright streaks that moved across the sky at high speed.

The sightings seemed to take place within the vicinity of La Guardia Airport however the sudden surge of reports from concerned residents within the space of one night was quite unusual.
Marrero in particular maintained that what he'd seen had been far too quick to be an airplane.

"I definitely think we’re dealing with anomalies that could potentially be nonhuman," said Ryan Sprague, a journalist who specializes in the UFO phenomenon.

"The maneuvers these objects seem to be making don’t fit with any current technology that we’re aware of - they’re not moving, then darting off at unbelievable speeds."

"I just don’t think that’s something a human could survive."

Back in 1995 I was the unwitting perpetrator of a minor UFO sighting story in the north-east of England. I was up on the Northumberland moors launching a model rocket. I had parked my van at the side of a remote road and set up the launch stand about fifty yards away. I launched the rocket, and when it parachuted back, collected it, packed my things, and drove off. A few days later there was a report in a local newspaper (the Hexham Courant) with the title "Mystery of Jet Engine Testing". This described how someone claimed to have seen a jet engine being test-fired on the back of a large truck... [More]

Hi Preacherman, yes I have seen something that wasn't normal. Other eye witnesses were also there. I put my story in here some time was for people who witnessed this type of phenomenon, but did not have solid proof to show what they had experienced. It was just good to share and talk about. I can't seem to find it though. I didn't have a camera at hand that evening, as I was just walking the dog. Wow! that sounds amazing what you and others had observed I wonder if that particular episode of Unsolved Mysteries could be found in a search. It would be pretty cool to see edit to say - o...

Me either. You should start a new thread. Haha..yeah maybe.I think a new thread or the old one - if dug up - concerning the Hudson case, would be far more interesting though Pretty cool that your mum and sister witnessed it.

so with all of the camera phones we have available today not one of the people witnessing this decided to try and record it?

Wouldn't have mattered.

Wouldn't have mattered. Typical useless one liner. IF more evidence is collected, OF COURSE IT MATTERS. With a few videos/stills from known locations, not only can the nature of the 'thing' be better resolved, it can be triangulated. Do you not understand how that sort of thing works? It was (very comprehensively) done for the Chelyabinsk meteor - have you seen how many hundreds of videos there are of that event? It's a bit like calling out "Swamp Gas". It's not funny, and is just another copout. If there are very few or no videos/stills, then there's very likely a simple reason...... Those th... [More]

During the 19990s I saw at night three lights travelling in a triangle formation then the light on the outside right left the formation and looped the other two before rejoining the triangle formation and the whole zoomed off. Never been able to explain it !

Sorry, that should have said the 1990s not whatever year 19990s is supposed to represent!
