Location: Jackson, NJ
Shape: Light
Duration:@1 minute
One object with three bright red lights.

Outside our house facing north east looking for Taurid fireballs. Observed object with three red bright lights( solid non blinking, non strobe) just above tree tops moving from right to left.

Ran inside and got my wife who observed the lights as well. We decided to jump into the car and try to follow the object beacuse it was moving out of view. There were multiple aircraft in the vicinity all seem to be converging on the area where the object was.

We drove around towards 195 over pass and went down a street next 195 and object was just fading from view due to trees. We got onto 195 west for two exits and didnt see anything, but multiple aircraft low flying in the area. Low flying aircraft is not unuasual due to the fact mcguire air base is close to jackson nj.

Wifes observations.

I saw three horizontal solid red lights with a blinking blue light beneath it. It was moving a little slower than planes we usually see. We are in a high air traffic area where we seen a lot of aircraft. It stayed in our sight for a minute or two then our trees covered the area it moved into. We headed towards it in the car, about a 4 minute drive right to a large parking lot noth of 195 near Metedeconk Golf Course where we caught a quick glimpse of the same object farther east but again trees blocked the view.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the husband, and he sounded to us to be quite sincere and sober-minded.
