Posted: 11/20/2001
Location: Middlesex, NJ
Shape: Other
Duration: still occurring
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
strange color in sky

Strange "cloud formation" appearing in the NW sky - fuschia to pink in appearance despite darkness. Sky conditions clear, unlimited ceiling, moon approx 5 days past full stage. Colored streak through sky was confined to a definable area throught the area from NW sky and followed through SE - site from ground appeared to be less than 1 mile wide and perhaps 1-2 miles in length. Color at first appeared pink to fuschia and gradually faded to a light pink at edges and lightening to all light pink over approx 15 minute period but lingers lightly still as I am typing this description.. Not apparent "UFO" but certainly an unusual appearance in the sky.. Note; commercial aircraft was also present in the area at the time - apparently originating from Newark Internattional Airport - which may have observed the same event. Latest update at 22:35 - sighting has completely disappeared

((NUFORC Note: Northern Lights were reported for this night. They were reported from all across the U. S.. PD))
