Object low flying N/W to S/E from Eisenhower Park, passed overhead
While driving facing North, stopped at a red light on Coolidge drive in East Meadow. I was at the Hempstead Turnpike cross. The night was warm/clear and semi busy with foot and vehicle traffic. As the light changed I began to move, left turn, heading westbound on Hempstead Tpke. While driving I viewed an aerial, single, rectangular object, approx. 100 feet from the ground, maybe...50-100 feet long. I'd say it was a dark colored object.
Four round bright white lights, equidistant to each other illuminated the bottom. Yet seemingly not enough to reach the ground. It appeared to be rectangular, but no moon visible/ I driving/ and the craft lights made it difficult to conclude a definitive shape. I say that because there was one red light visible, not blinking, on the west side as I proceeded slowly to drive under it. NO SOUND--- and cruising at seemingly a slow speed. Traveling from the Northwest to the Southeast.
I frantically looked to the pedestrians and other drivers…Nobody seemed to notice. NOBODY.
Through my mind I felt, helicopter?--No…Blimp?--No…No sound.
I've worked many nights and it's nothing I've ever come across. Must be something I missed. You got me.
