Further Description of Sighting: It was about 7:30 to 9;30pm. I had just emerged from the subway at 169th st. and Hillside Ave. in Jamaica, New York, I was going to pick up my car to finish my commute home to Long Island. The light and movement caught my eye and I looked up.
There above me moving at moderate speed in a NE direction was a very large disc. The overall illuminated color was that of an incandescent light bulb. On two sides directly across from each other were 2 half moon shaped sections lighted in a solid bright green colored light.
This object made absolutely no sound what so ever. It was reported on the CBS news radio later that evening, but only once. Official report, “an airplane advertising” I being an observer over the years of all types of aircraft, both military and civilian can honestly say this was not a winged craft of any type.
I would like to know if this was reported and archived in any NY newspaper, since hundreds of people saw this disc and called the police. I listened as it was reported on CBS radio at appox. 10:00pm that night..
