UFO over Carousel Center in Syracuse, NY 10/14/2009

My family and I just had left the Sports Authority at Carousel Center in Syracuse. We got into the car and proceeded to drive towards the exit for 81 south. We were still in the drive around the parking lot when my wife screamed, "What is that, pointing out the window."

I pulled the car over and looked out and up. The UFO we witnessed was HUGE and black metallic bottom with several lights around the cross/weird shaped object. It was smokey looking around the lights, possibly due to the cold (40 degree) night sky.?

We watched it move slowly left and right as it went away from us at 5-10mph. (approx.) There was absolutely NO SOUND, which baffled me considering it was immense. I decided to try and follow it. I drove around to the main entrance of the mall and we saw the UFO again and it had picked up the speed a bit. We watched it head parallel to Hiawatha Blvd.. slightly SE/E. As we drove through the city down Salina Street, we all started to breath a! gain.

The last time I saw a UFO of this size I was 9 years old. I am 28 now, my wife is 25. My 3 children were in the car as well. One 7, second is 4, and my youngest (which I cant really count as a witness) is almost 1.

I called my dad, who lives in Orlando, Florida and told him and also called my brother who lives on the NW side of Syracuse to tell him as well.

I am simply amazed at what I just saw. My family is in awe and my 7 year old daughter was terrified. Simply spectacular.
