Union Township, New Jersey, USA; August 23, 2017


Name: John Straley

Date of Sighting: 8/23/2017

Location of Sighting: Union Township, Hunterdon County

Number of UFO(s), including the Color(s), Size(s) and Shape(s): 1 UFO, randomly flashing very brightly, spherical in shape.

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: 5,000 feet

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): appeared out of nowhere and then moved in a southerly direction.

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): I know how planes appear in the night sky, periodically strobing red, green and clear lights at a fixed rate. I also know how low-altitude satellites appear at night, usually traveling from due south to due north, appearing as a “star” as they reflect light off the sun. What I saw was neither a plane or satellite.

Further Description of Sighting: It appeared as a bright white pulse or flash, much stronger than anything I’ve ever seen, save for lightning. This was no “shooting” star. It would drift in an erractic path, periodically pausing and then flash. Not able to see it unless it flashed.

I say its path was erratic only because it flashed often enough to ‘visually’ track it. Eventually, after 2 or 3 minutes, it disappeared. My daughter witnessed the same behavior in the night sky in the same area on July 7, 2017. Could it have been a drone?
