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..


  1. I was on 162nd St. And 46th Ave. Flyshing, NY And saw something in the sky. My memory it was circular with lights reminding of of a fair ride. Flying very low for quite some time. Of course back then no internet to run to


  2. I was a teenager not sure what year but early 1970’s and was laying on the couch watching TV in Brooklyn (Crown Heights-Bed Stuy area) in the evening. Something caught the corner of my eye outside the window. I got up and looked through the window and saw a big glowing object gliding through the dark sky. No sound, I think the windows were closed but don’t remember. I really could not believe what I was seeing and not sure that anyone else did. I may have told one of my brothers and over the years, my kids about seeing this unexplainable object in the sky. I’ve never seen anything like that since.
