APRIL 21, 2011…………HACKETTSTOWN NEW JERSEY
In April 2011, a friend and I were stargazing on my roof on a dry clear night in New Jersey. We were observing the Lyrids meteor shower that wasn’t producing as many shooting stars as we had hoped, but we stayed up there, intensely focused on the sky to see one every few minutes.
After a couple hours of this, we caught a bright light in our peripherals. We turn around and see what looks like a bright blue-white LED flashlight traveling in the forest behind the house. At first instinct we thought it was the police with a flashlight chasing someone, but then we realized that the light was up in the tree tops, weaving through the canopy. All we could say is “WTF is that” over and over again as it got closer to us.
It was traveling along the direction of the river behind our house and seemed to notice us because as it passed the back of my house, it slowed to a gentle stop then took a 90 degree turn onto the clearing of our property about 40 feet from us coming straight towards us. As if it had noticed us and wanted to check us out.
This is when we got our first really good look at it. It was a perfectly defined glowing sphere of light the size of a basketball with what seemed like churning/flowing plasma inside. Icy blue/white hue emitting absolutely no sound at all. We started screaming at this point.
As it approached, it moved very slowly compared to the pace it had traveling through the trees. It seemed almost cautious in its movement? It’s weird but you could sense some form of intention/intelligence in it’s movement.
We were horrified because we knew nothing could explain what we were seeing. And we weren’t about to stick around and find out by letting it get any closer. We scrambled off the roof and ran inside, hiding under a blanket like scared little children, even though we were in our late teens. We didn’t talk about it much after that because we just couldn’t explain it.
About a year later, one of my neighbors is banging on my door telling me to let him in. He was visibly shaken and told me that him and a friend were down by the river in that same patch of woods and were chased by a floating silent light ball. This freaked me out because I knew he was telling the truth. I had never told him the story of my encounter.
After some more recent research, I discovered that our neighborhood, including my property, is situated on top of the Musconetcong Thrust Fault. I wonder if this fault line contributes to the phenomenon in any way. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
