Reported: 7/28/2002 6:51:16 PM 18:51
Posted: 7/30/2002
Location: New York City, NY
Shape: Changing
Duration: 2 mins
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Single black flying object, alternating between circular and disclike shape, constant velocity seen over NYC.

Laying on my bed looking out the window I saw an object moving at a constant velocity. I jumped up to get a closer look without taking my eyes away. The object changed shapes from circular to disclike (from my perspective)alternating every 2-3 seconds. It moved in one direction, did not change course, and seemed to be moving at a constant velocity ... slower than the planes I see taking off from a nearby airport. The object came near one airplane but neither seemed to change course (again, from my perspective). I've never seen anything like this before. I'm not inferring that this was an alien UFO, but it was certainly not like anything I've witnessed before.
