UFO sighting on Monday July 28, 2014 nighttime.

On Monday, July 28, 2014, we were camping at the Sandy Hook, NJ camp site.

I was sitting outside at around 11:30 pm with my friend and my son observing the night sky. The night sky was clear after clouds and storms had passed by the previous 24 hours day. Also, compared to where we live in NJ the ground light pollution is much less so we actually could see the stars, etc., very well.

All of a sudden, my friend mentioned, “What is that thing moving up there?” A circular object moving very high at a steady speed, in a straight line, in the sky was noticed. It was very very high, more like out of earth’s atmosphere (a lot). It looked like a very large circular-shaped object passing earth in space. It was moving from our position from west to east in the direction of Europe/the Atlantic. From when we saw it first till it disappeared beyond the treetop line it was about 45-60 seconds.

It was very gradually lighting up, but not to a very bright white light, than it went gradually back to dark and alternatively back to light. Very steady and even change of brightness. No colors & no trail.

My friend first spotted it, I saw it, and my 11 year old son saw it, and we were astonished.

No way this was a plane, no blinking lights; no colored lights, no change of direction, and roundly shaped and at an incredible height. It must have been very very big. We only had I-phones to take pictures so it would never have showed, frankly we were to much in awe to even think about taking a picture.

True statement.
