Two UFO sightings while looking at and from the Statue Of Liberty.

Wednesday March 7th. My 3 year old couldn’t sleep, I was showing him what the Statue of Liberty was. We were looking at Presidential Dollars and he asked if the picture on the reverse was god, I said no, and tried to explain what it was. Then it hit me I could show him a picture. After a couple links I stumbled on http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/statueofliberty/?cam=liberty_torch I found it amazing that you can view NY through a live feed from Liberty’s Torch.

After I started panning around at aprox 11:15 pm I noticed a floating light above the city. I had caught it while it was on the left hand side of the panoramic view. The light was white, solid & rectangular the length of the light iliminated any possibility of an air craft. I’ve never seen anything in that shape so clear and uniform. I had to capture what I was seeing and remembered that I downloaded a plugin where you can capture screen shots. I’d yet to use it but thought this would be the perfect time. My first attempt at taking the screen capture got screwed up from lack of use. And bye the time I made it back to the web site and back to the live feed looking out the torch into NY. The light had moved a considerable distance, and now was three ¼’s across the panoramic screen and much further away. Now its 11:20pm but this time I was able to capture the light with a screen capture. You can still make out the odd shape of the light and still have a pretty good view ! when zooming in.

But the next thing I saw is really amazing! When looking directly at the Statue of Liberty in full frontal view. A long object can easily be seen with multiple color lights just off the right side of Lady Liberty and extending all the way out of the shot. The placement of the object can’t be horizon lights or anything like that. And I just checked the live cameras during the day to double check, and nothing is visible. And the great thing is I was able to take two pictures of the object. If I was to guess what I was looking at I’d say it was a large oval but flattened shaped fly saucer and I was seeing the side that was closest to me, and when you zoom in on the picture it does appear to confirm these thoughts. I’ve got multiple pictures that allow you to zoom in and can send them to whom ever, I hope they come out right when I post this.
