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.
