Location: Dexter, NY
Duration: 1 minute-2mins
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|large saucer shaped object with many colored lights, very close to me
Driving to work near at 5:30 AM passing the Dexter, NY airport. I saw a bright light in sky, assumed it was the airport beacon. As I got nearer, I was able to see two distinct, separate lights, one which was the beacon. I got even closer and could see that this object emitting the light was about 1/4 mile past the airport and somewhat in-line with the airport beacon due to my perspective.
I passed the airport and neared the object and could clearly see it was a UFO. I stopped adjacent to its position alongside the road and exited my vehicle to better observe it. The object was large and saucer shaped with bright lights of different colors along its outer rim and on top and bottom. The object was approximately 150' or more in diameter, and approx 10-20feet in height, and was stationary just above tree level and less than 100 meters from my postion.
I got a very good look at it. The profile of the object was 'eye' shaped but it was round. It made no! noise nor disturbance. I watched it for a minute or so.
I heard another car approching from the east and looked to see if the vehicle was going to stop. I returned my gaze to where the UFO was and it was gone. It was only about two seconds that my gaze was averted.
