|Silent football field of lights that could be seen for miles
Driving south on the Hutchinson River Parkway, from Connecticut, I noticed a light in the sky. It didn't appear to be moving so I kept watching it. My sister was driving and my mom was in the back seat. I did not say anything at first because I just figured it was a plane.
As we approached the access to the Cross County Parkway, I finally asked my sister to look through the trees to see if she could see something. We rounded the bend and it was right above us. We pulled off to the side of the road and got out. As we did this, about 6 other card pulled off behind us.
We all got out of our cars and watched this object. It seemed to be as large as 2 football fields. It was not moving and there was no sound. I believe the lights were white.
We all watched about 5 minutes until it began to leave. It went north, some people tried to follow in their cars.
I went home, called the radio station, and they said they had about 80 calls so far. The official report the next day said that it was light aircraft, flying in formation. My mother, my sister, and myself had never really believed in UFO'S, but we know what we saw.
