Location: Woodbridge, NJ
Shape: Light
Duration: nine minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Saw two lights that were not planes.

I was standing on my porch. It was 1806hrs EST. I am in Newark Internationalís Approach area. Many planes fly over my house at very low altitudes, while others pass thru the area taking off to other destinations. I was observing a plane at moderate altitude going into the airport heading east. At the same time, much further away and off to the left, I saw a white ball of light. This ball of light was about the brightness of any low star you can see on a night like this. It moved consistently towards the east until it simply dimmed out of existence. After the awe of seeing this, I continued to scan the sky from East to West then North. I saw again another plane very high in the sky traveling west. Again I saw another ball of light, which brightness measured to a dim star but was moving to the East. This one I tracked across my horizon (which isnít much because I lived in the suburbs) and watched it closely to make sure that it wasnít my equilibrium! . This ball of light passed constellations until it as well dimmed into the darkness of space. This is my full account of the incident. It is currently 1819hrs EST.
