SATURN LIKE UFO CRAFT SPOTTED OVER NEW JERSEY
4TH OF JULY, 2013 … MIDDLESEX NEW JERSEY
Ken…I am writing to you because I looked up NJ Mufon and it led me to your page. On this 4th of July 2013, my brother and I saw something in the sky around 11:00. It would be hard to say that on the 4th of July we saw something in the sky at night with out someone saying it was fireworks but I can tell you we did see something that wasn’t normal and I actually saw it twice a few minutes later. As always on the 4th, my family has a big bbq and yes we do shoot fireworks lol. However after shooting our fireworks, I was always taught to clean up and sweep the street when we are done. That night after cleaning up the street and house, my brother and I were in our backyard finishing up before calling it a night. We were all done with the fireworks as were the few other neighborhood kids that usually break the law in lighting fireworks :) We all tend to finish early as to not disturb the neighbors to late. As I was walking to turn off the gas for my bbq, from the corner of my eye I noticed something white and orange moving slowly across the sky. I started to focus on it as I thought it was possibly a firework but I hadn’t heard any sound of it taking off? So I watched it slowly dropping down and getting slower as it did. I thought to myself, what the heck is this? Can’t be a firework. It was moving for almost 10-15 seconds and then it just stopped falling and held perfectly still.
I know my fireworks as I am almost 37 and have probably had or shot every possible firework there is and there is nothing that can or does this. So I started looking at it and it was just floating perfectly still. It looked like an orange ball with a sliver/blue ring around it,. The orange was way more prevalent when it was moving but I could still see the orange when it stopped. I called my brother and he joined me in looking at it. He had no idea what it was either. So we watched it for what seemed about 30 seconds. Then, it seemed to slowly fade out, almost like a light inside a car when you close the door. It took about 15 seconds I would say until it faded out. So we looked at each other asking what could this have been? We then walked inside scratching our heads. Once inside, my wife asked me to bring out another bag of garbage. So I went out the front of my house to bring out the trash and as I did I walked into the street to spray some more water onto the swept up mess from the fireworks. Once I got into the street which was maybe about 3 minutes from when I walked into the house from the yard, there it was again. Only this time it was all the same color. It seemed more in the silver-ish glow color but the shape of it was more defined. It actually looked like a mini planet of Saturn, but it was tilted forward a bit. It’s hard for me to say this, but my eye site is actually terrible. But that is what makes me more sure of what I saw. It was so clear and defined. I was not mistaken by any means. It was not a plane, not a helicopter, not a firework, not a bird. I went into the house to get him, but by the time I got back outside, it was gone again. This thing was there and we saw it. I wasn’t going to write anyone about it as I thought, who could I tell anyway. Well I have recently returned to work as I had off from July1st-14th. I was telling some of my co-workers and customers about my vacation and what I did. I have jokingly been telling them that my brother and I saw a UFO. Well today I was talking to one of the other managers at work about what happened and she almost jumped out of her chair when I said we saw one on the 4th. She said her and her father saw it too !! She even mentioned that a friend of hers, who also lives close to here, posted something on his face book, “did anyone see something weird like a UFO in the sky on the 4th?” She said she asked him what he saw and he told her something very similar to what we saw. I work about 1.5 miles from my house and she lives about maybe 2.5 miles from me. I am not sure where her friend lives but they both live in Woodbridge. I live in Edison. I don’t know if you have heard of any reports but I can tell you, there was something there with 100% certainty. If you have questions and or want to contact me, please feel free to do so.
