Location: New York City (East Harlem), NY
Shape: Disk
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
I saw a strange whiteness in the sky which I tried to photograph, but got other photos instead.

I was having communications I felt that I should go out that night with a camera because I might see something that night. I live in East Harlem, and I was instructed to go south at first down 3rd Ave. I saw several fast moving lights but they were too fast for me to photograph, or once the camera on the phone did not work when I pressed the little camera icon on the screen. When I got to 109th Street I received instructions to go west one block to Lexington Ave. When I got to the corner I saw a strange whiteness in the sky behind some distant clouds to the southwest. I put the phone up to take a picture and there was a big flash of light when I took the picture. I tried two more times right away and the same thing happened. 'When I looked at the photos later I was surprised to see some strange photos. I checked the details of each photo and the flash was off it said. I can't explain these photos, but the saucer like object in the first photo reminded me of a black saucer I saw before. Also there is a video on the internet of a black ship rising up from the ground in the mountains somewhere, then hovering in front of a power station or something, and lights like the windows light up like in my photo. Something to consider.
