Large, Still, Silent, Hovering Triangular Craft. 19 Miles West of New York City

Last year I was leaving for work at precisely 6am. It was still dark. I live 19 miles due west of New York City, in an area that is still relatively undeveloped. As I got to the stop sign I noticed that my neighbor’s house (on seven, predominantly wooded acres) was illuminated. Directly above the house (a one story ranch) was a large triangular craft hovering not more than 30-40’ over his roof. (He is 90 years old, and I have not heard that he was ever aware of it.) It was silent and still. Although I regret not going back for my camera or getting out of the car, my instinct was to get away so I turned right and started up the hill. But I made a point of looking at the craft closely. It, . It was an isosceles triangle, . The light emanating from it was white and bright, . It had three large, blindingly bright round lights in each of the corners and rows of smaller, round lights running along all three sides of the bottom, . The side had vertical slats running from the roof to the bottom edge (like the old World Trade Center), . It was only about 10-15’ high, . It was shining a weak beam of light onto my neighbor’s property (close to the old pond), My neighbor’s property abuts electric power lines that I understand shelter a natural gas pipeline.

As I drove up the hill and lost sight of the craft above my neighbor’s house I looked to my left. A a second triangular craft was hovering above a power line tower about a 1/2 a mile in the distance. This one, however, had no lights on. I just saw a dark gray triangle juxtaposed above a lighter gray sky.

I would have reported this last February, but I only recently became familiar with your site.
