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?

Mount Olive Township, New Jersey, USA; August, 1997

Name: david

Date of Event: August 1997

Location of Event: Mount Olive NJ (BUDD LAKE)

Message: I also saw a UFO in Budd lake NJ on august of 1997 I was at the building V in kings village apt. when we had a power outage i was sitting on my car in the parking lot when i noticed beams of light coming from an octagon shaped object. it was approximately 200 feet above the apartments near Vasa park.

The beams were surrounding the object approximately 2 feet apart and there were 10 lights in total around the object. I stared at the object for 5 minutes and decided to walk around the apartment complex to get a better look as i approached the object i noticed something spinning underneath of it and at that time all the lights in the apartment complex started turning on and off (like when you watch a movie about UFO’s and they start flickering) and then the power came back on and the object disappeared.

I contacted the daily record the following day but they stated they didn’t receive enough calls about the object i saw. I had asked a police officer why did we have a power outage and he stated that a car had crashed and hit a pole and it caused the power outage, but i searched for the car accident but it never came up on the newspaper nor on any other type of news article nor online.

Kind of strange how the power outage only lasted 10 minutes and there were no reports of an accident. I have been searching for any type of article of someone else seeing a UFO in the mount Olive area (Budd lake) saw this article and just had to reply.
