In 1979 while driving east on new highway in commack just after dark ,i was looking at the sky over parkway drive north, what looked like a red light that you may see on the top of a water tower caught my eye.I drove in the direction turned right on the service road,drove in the direction of this glowing red light.I parked my car on the sholder it was total darkness,no lights are on this road.Looking through the woods,just above the tree line,my eyes began to adjust to the dark and i was able to make out what i saw. at that moment the red light started to dim, i was looking at a craft around 300' wide it looked like 2 foot ball shape crafts side by side the red light was directly in the middle,i was able to make out structure of the craft it had slots that ran fron left to right ,like square window ports but long ,equal on both sides. it made no noise, i tried to take a back road and come up behind it for a better look.Before i could do this it began to move no light were on the craft at this time, Minutes later this thing lit up like the sun,bright shot into the south east like a flash and it was gone.It was not from this world ,im 52 today and it seems like yesterday. I will never forget it i had a friend in the passenger seat who would back me up on the encouter.i have not stoped lookin in the sky since.
