Back in 1997 , i lived in Richmond hill NY At my parents house, My mother had given me this Binocular for my Birthday one my hobbies was sky watching, my folks home is about 20 minutes from JFK airport I was standing by the fire escape side Saw a few planes passing by near the house, then about 20 minutes after that i saw an oval shape craft descending rather quickly no wings no sound just coming down and it's stopped almost parallel to the house i felt it saw me all the way down, i was in such awe it had a pulsating amber color almost like a ring around it,it just hovered there, unfortunately at the time there was no Hd cameras, I had an old Kodak had no film,didn't want to move from that spot and miss something i was alone at the time my parents were not home and What happens next was the most amazing part of all,i don't know how to perfectly Describe what was about to happen, this oval shape craft which i called it a probe or something like that, this craft opened the sky in a horizontal line shaped sort off like when you turn those old tvs on/off makes that horizontal line then blinks out and gone.

That's exactly what this craft did,it opened a portal i believe  it disappeared, the reason it knew something was coming and no time to fly away so it took a short cut and just went in that portal and left because within 2 minutes there were about 5 black military choppers searching at the same spot where the oval craft was hovering, they (tower control or Norad) must it caught it on Radar,i will never forget that sighting from that day couple of strange things happened and i decided then to not sky watch or anything like that again, 23 years later i have decided to go back and begin a podcast and try sky watching again and not be afraid i felt they whom ever they were, was trying to make contact, it was that fear that kept me away, I'm no longer afraid, maybe is time to do my search And make contact.
