On Saturday, around 1700 hrs, I saw the following from my bedroom window in Veitsch, Styria. I have my pc there and was looking again like countless times towards Stanglalm (N.B. that is a local mountain south of my home). I saw 3 silent dark grey objects approx. 20-30 meters in length or diameter coming from the area of Sommerberg flying/gliding towards Stanz in Mürztal. My window was open and at first I thought I saw birds, it was absolutely quit outside, aeroplanes and helicopters make quite a sound. the three flew in a straight line after one other, the first two a few hundrred meters apart and the 3 about 10 second behind the second object at the apparently same height and direction. I knew they were objects rather than bird when the flew through some sort of electrical cloud, I could see numerous flashes of light on the “skin”/outer grey layer on each object. A bird would die instantly if caught in a lightning bolt and crash. I saw each object approx. 3-5 seconds, that was to short to get my olympus 800uz, as it takes 30-45 seconds to fire it up. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
There was a lightning storm that evening, and as my Wife came back inside from sitting on the front steps, i went outside and looked up into the sky and saw a bolt of lightning that crossed the entire sky from the middle outward. I ran inside and got my phone as i could tell from the timing of the lightning flashes indicated it was within 11 miles or less from where we were. I sat patiently with my eye on the sky, while holding my phone with my thumb hovering over the capture icon, hoping to catch it with my Human reaction time. Because my I-phone has 2 cameras, it has a very high resolution, and the screen is small enough that it is really difficult to discern small objects until they are zoomed in. After 30 minutes or so, and multiple flashes of lightning, I went back inside and started to swipe through the photos and saw only after-glows of the lightning, where the sky was turned pink, at night, with every flash of lightning. I deleted at least 15 or more photos as I didn’t see any lightning at first. But while swiping from one “live” photo to the next, I caught something, that I did not see at first. My eyes were on the sky the whole time i was taking pictures, I wasn’t looking through my camera to take the photos. That is why I saw nothing, without the camera. But as the photo slid from it to the next, a short “live” photo video clearly showed an object flying from one side of the photo to the other.
I went back and forth through the photos and kept watching it over and over again. At first I thought it was an insect, until I went online, found out how to capture frames in a live photo, and caught 3 frames of this object or whatever it was, flying by. The last photo frame clearly shows an Arrow shape something, with partially invisible wings, and it did not match up to anything I’ve seen before, and apparently went from a disc shape in the first 2 frames, to an arrow-shape. I was certainly surprised, and was more skeptical than not, and still I remain that way as I cannot identify or quantify its existence. I showed it to my wife, who wasn’t sure how to react to it other than “Its a UFO, that’s what that looks like to me, holy sh*T”. I spent almost a half an hour, reviewing the short photo-video, and the pictures before and after it, and saw nothing else. But I knew I caught something, and I’m still not sure what to think about it. Additionally the sky in my backyard happens to display the strangest weather patterns I’ve ever seen regardless, so I’m not surprised if it was a UFO or whichever. I’m not sure if this is anything you might find significant, but it was not a bird, or a plane, or an insect, I am certain of that. I surmised that this was the most logical place to relay this information, helpful or not. Although I have never reported it in the past, this was my second sighting in my life time, and was not anywhere near the same in appearance, or the same region of the United States. Thank you for your time, and maybe this could be of use in the future to you.
Summary: A VERY large, Boomerang-shaped object tracked across the sky in a NE direction just after full dark.
I wish I had not waited months to reports this, but until recently did not know who to report it to. I saw a television program that described your field researchers and I liked that your set scientific and observational standards. I do not like wild speculation and absurd conjectures as I often see in deranged programs like UFO Hunters or whatever it is called. I like mysteries to be approached rationally. This brings me back to the night of August 11, 2010. I have long wondered if anyone else had reported anything for that night. Soon after the event, I posted an oblique statement on my Facebook page “Did anyone else see that?” simply so I would not forget the date and time. I do not jump to conclusions, but I have also failed to find a prosaic explanation for the event. There were two other people with me who saw the strange object. I will leave their names off of here for the time being. [They live nearby, but I have not asked their permission to include them in this report.] We were standing in my driveway just after full dark. It was likely between 8 and 9pm. Checking the time for full darkness at the time of the year should some up with a very close approximate time. There was a bright moon shinning in the in the southeast quadrant of the sky. I think if it were not for that, we would have seen nothing. I was facing north toward my companions as we stood there talking. The evening was pleasant and it had grown dark. It was not unusual for us to stand outside and talk although we were about to say goodnight. One of my companions was looking behind me and saw it first. She made a gasping noise or other sound while looking into the sky behind me. I turned to see what she was looking at. We live about 20 miles from Philadelphia International Airport in the town of Richwood, NJ and frequently have large numbers of commercial airliners circling overhead. I expected something of this sort. What I saw was very different. I turned to look south and saw it almost immediately or at least the impression of it. I also said a rather surprising swear word which I would not normally use in this company. The object was moving quickly in a east-north-east direction [toward the Delaware River and Chester, PA] and at first it was just a suggestion of movement because it was black against black. It was simply a different shape of black flying with no lights at all. The moonlight caught on the shape and revealed it as the sharp-angled boomerang without further detail to the surface. It annoys me to report it as an angular boomerang shape because I know there have been many other reports like that. It was very large in the sky. Much larger than the commercial airliners we see daily on their approach to Philadelphia. I do not know what altitude the circling airliners are at this point in their approach, but that is probably not too difficult to find out. Their windows are easily visible. This was far larger than those. There were no airplanes in sight at the time of the event.
The trouble is that for it to be that size it would have to have been either unusually low and close to us or farther away and unbelievably vast in size. The object cruised quickly by without the slightest sound or change in speed or altitude. I hoped it would pass in front of the moon, but unfortunately it moved “beneath” where the moon was and was quickly lost to view in the dark. It was moving fast but without knowing the distance I would not guess at its speed. It was gone before there was much chance of further reaction. I turned to my companions and we were all equally dumbfounded. There was nothing more to do except head inside. I typed the note on Facebook so I would not forget, but I also had hoped someone else might say something. It was a long shot. No one else reported anything.
I have seen stealth bombers flying in the desert and they are huge. This object was at LEAST that large, but I felt it was larger still. The stealth was my best suspect as I racked my brain, but it does not make sense. For a stealth to be that large, it would have to be too close. Why would a bomber be flying so low in a densely populated area? A stealth can easily fly above local air traffic. Flying without lights would be extremely dangerous around this crowded airspace even if you were training the crew in radar evasion. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I have seen flying saucers since august 18, 1980. This was my 8th UFO experience, but I have never seen orbs, only spaceships. These were orbs, I think, not what I usually experience. I first noticed the object before dinner, but I just blew it off. We had dinner on the beach, overlooking the water. My wife noticed it after dinner, when we went to leave. I immediately saw a large bright light again, much brighter than the first time, approximately 45 earlier. I knew immediately what it was, a UFO. We just purchased a camera a few days before, and we went to the waters edge, and started filming. My wife did. The object, there were
4-5 of them, were extremely bright, varying in size from a pin head to a quarter. I estimate about half a mile to a mile away from shoreline. They moved independently, and went from bright small in size, to immensely bright and huge, maybe the size of a quarter. They moved up and down, remained stationary, and one of them went over land when big, over I would assume sandy hook area, 10-15 miles north of where we were.
There were 6-7 people on the beach watching and filming as well. It was amazing to see. My feelings…very excited, very controlled. I wanted to attract them, and stood in the light than ran across the water and did jumping jacks to attract it. It did not respond. The objects got extremely big and bright maybe 3-4 times. These actions unfortunately were not captured on video of photos. I told my wife to take video, to make sure we had it on video. I spoke to my cousin on the cell phone throughout part of the experience, because he knows of all the things I have experienced, and I was describing the scene to him as it happened. I am very lucky to have experienced what I have throughout my life. We never lost sight of the objects. We left after about an hour or so. We saw amazing detail of 2 orbs around a tremendous bright round light, sometimes two bright circles of light. Unfortunately, I do not know how to submit this to you right now, but will have my wife do so in the next few days to a week. You will be amazed, or maybe not, since this is probably common but it is amazing, and I would like an explanation as to what this is. I believe it is extra terrestrial. My wife thinks it was secret military craft, but she also said she did not know what it was. She does not believe in UFO’S, since she has never seen one, but then, she could not explain what we saw.

KEN’S NOTE: This area has been very active with sightings over the years. Ft Monmouth is nearby and has a two mile dock that protrudes out into the bay. Military ships can be seen there often. The bay leads to the Varrazano Bridge and eventually Manhattan. Check it-out on Google Earth.
This case is under investigation by Bob Spearing of MUFON New Jersey.
