Further Description of Sighting: On a Sunday evening around 6:00 still daylight, I believe late July, I was running bath water and looked out the bathroom window toward Pearl Street in Metuchen.
Pearl Street is bordered by railroad tracks, and there is an American Legion in one corner of what is now the Pearl St. parking lot. A movement in the sky caught my attention, and I saw a dull silver oval-shaped object moving above the tree line along the railroad tracks from left to right, slowly.
As I called my mother to come look, another oval object came into to view heading from right to left – toward the first one. They were on an equal level and moving slowly. They came to within a short distance of one another, paused a moment, then shot straight up so quickly and were gone – as if jumping into hyperspace.
Although I don’t think the words warp speed or hyperspace where used at that point in time. My mother never appeared in time to see this, so I was the only witness I’m aware of.
Coincidentally when returning to Franklin school that September, my home room teacher had a photo thumb tacked to his bulletin board of the same type of thing. I asked him where he saw that, and the reply was “over a reservoir I can see from my backyard” I believe in Union.
Years later I wrote this teacher and left a phone message requesting a copy of that photo, and although I know he was still around, never received a reply. Needless to say a lot of time has passed and I know what I saw was something that will stay with me as truly a unique experience.
