Shape: Disk
Duration: approx. 2 min.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object, The object made a sound
at approx. 3:30 a.m. est I was awaken by an intense wind tunnel like sound coming from outside my window.Upon looking out my window, I saw something that would change my life forever. Make me a believer in the u.f.o. phenomenon. A disk like object appeared hovering above the tree line outside my window. As it hovered above the trees there was a series of red lights circulating around the lower portion of the object.The top of the craft, I really couldn't make out that well being that there was a white hazy glow above the red lights. Below that there seemed to be 2 white lights blinking on and off. At first i thought it was a plane but after watching it descend lower and to my right, I realized it was not possible movement for an airplane. All of a sudden it instantly turned into a very bright red dot, something along the lines of a laser pen. It quickly made a figure 8-like shape before turnig back into the disk-like shape and slowly made its' way below the tree line. Upon waking up the next morning, to my surprise i had found out that there was a problem with Airforce 1 not being picked up on radar approx. near the vicinity of LaGuardia Airport. This experience has definately made me a believer and will always feel close to the"other" side. I am a 22 year old male from Northern New Jersey.
