|the craft seemed to float parallel to the hills very very slowly and at a constant speed then it seemed to turn or "widen" so that one of the flatter sides was visible. then it became very bright. so i am fit to assume that there were many bright lights on that side of the craft. then it proceeded to go behind the trees.
Upon first sighting of the huge light, it looked like a large lit ball going westward in the sky above the Sourland Mountains. After calling my 15 yr old daughter and getting a pair of binoculars, we took turns looking at the craft in the sky as it floated or slowly moved along the tree tops. Then, before it came to a larger group of trees it seemed to turn south, still at the tree tops, and away from our view. As it turned away, the shape of the craft changed from an oval with a bright, almost gold, lite in the center, to a more concave shape which we lost in the trees as it went south or fell slighty in the sky. Self-employed, my husband owns his own Mechanical Contracting business (he was out-of-town, called him by phone) college educated, two children, oldest attends an ivy league college, youngest (the 15 yr old, also witnessed) attends an exclusive prep school, a strong Christian family. Own our home from which we saw the craft.
