It was during the summer of 1959 on a working farm now known as Dorbrook Park. My family lived and my father worked on the farm at the time of the sighting. The physical location of this site is adjacent to the Naval Weapons Station, Earle road and rail that runs from the main location in Colts Neck to Belford. At the time of the sighting, my sister, myself, father and mother along with several other people were sitting outside enjoying the pleasant summer evening from the front yard of the house that we were living in. It was at this time that we all simultaneously noticed what appeared to be a large shiny, silver sphere due east of our location. The sphere was roughly following the direction of the Navy road, heading towards the main Ammunition storage facility located a couple of miles to the south of our location. The object was moving in a slow but deliberate manner at an altitude must have been from 300 to 500 feet. Its speed was probably 40 to 50 mph. The object was also displaying about 10 to 15 randomly blinking red and white lights. The majority of these lights seem to concentrate roughly around the longitudinal plane of the sphere and appeared to be separate from the craft itself. Each light seemed to blink at a rate of maybe once per second. It should be noted that the location of this farm now a county park is within 4 miles of Fort Monmouth Army Communications and Electronics Command where radar was developed along with a number of other initiatives critical to the National Defense.
Right after our sighting, my father ran to a phone and attempted to call Fort Monmouth however, he could not get through at that time. He did not try again therefore, our sighting was not reported to the best of my knowledge. The sighting lasted only a few minutes as the sphere disappeared behind some trees however, it can be safely assumed that its path did take it over the ammunition depot itself. Of course there have been rumors for years that the facility was used to store nuclear devices. In closing, years later I came across another witness observed what appears to be the same object however, he viewed it from the Navesink river on the River Plaza side. This location is also on a direct line towards Belford sight of the Pier where the ammunition ships are loaded and is approximately 4 miles from the farm where we observed the object.
