Two very large spheres/circles sat motionless in the sky over the Sandy Hook Bay near the end of Earl Navel Pier.
They were high in the sky as we looked north towards New York City. They were very large (I estimate their size to be roughly half the size of the moon that night, as the moon appeared to us looking up at it.
They were very large lights; solid orange steady lights. As soon as I walked out of the house I saw them and said “What are they?”
It was obvious they were not planes, blimps, flares, satellites or the International Space Station. There were planes flying far to the left of them (west) and planes were coming out of Kennedy airport far to the right (east) of the lights.
The planes appeared as usual; small white specs of lights, some blinking. These spheres were very bright orange with a ting of pink.
They hovered there for almost 2 minutes and very slowly moved slightly northeast a short distance, then disappeared. We did not see them fly off into the distance as we normally see the planes do.
These moved so slowly, they almost did not appear to be moving and then they were gone. There was no noise at all. The experience was amazing, shocking and exciting to see these things just hanging there in the sky.
KEN'S NOTE: I am presently investigating this case and there are many UFO sightings in this area. The pier is over 2 miles long and it is part of Fort Monmouth.
I believe large amounts of munitions are stored at Fort Monmouth and transported by railway to this pier. Military ships can often be spotted at the pier. Check it out on Google Earth.
