Possible UFO Sighting, Manhattan, New York 1996

In October 1996 at 8 AM I was walking to my job in Manhattan, New York. At the corner of 10th Avenue and 57th Street I saw two gray elliptical objects coming from the New Jersey side of the river. The objects were traveling very fast and they were silent. They hovered over my head for a few seconds and I could see lights in the underside of the objects then they just disappeared before my eyes. It was a beautiful clear day, not a cloud or airplane in the sky.

When I got to work I discussed my sighting with a co worker who researches UFO’s. He showed me some pictures of UFO’s and those pictures looked exactly like the objects I saw.
