Glowing Red Object Reported over New York
UFO Depiction

New York, New York - 12-28-12

I was at home on the phone with my boyfriend. I looked out the window and noticed a bright, red, glowing orb heading towards me.

I immediately told him I was seeing a UFO. He didn't believe me and told me to film it. I went to film it on my phone and could not do so while a call was in progress.

In my excitement I didn't explain this to him and just hung up and started to record it. He called me back 14 seconds into the recording, so it was automatically stopped.

I could still see the orb. It came to a stop and was hovering, I could hear no sounds. I told him I'd call him back, but by the time I looked down at my phone and back up, probably 5 seconds, the orb had vanished.

I cannot really judge distances. I can however, being a New Yorker, say that it appeared to be visible to me around 85/86th streets between 3rd and Lexington Avenues and was last spotted at about 89th and 3rd. I live on 91st street between 3rd and Lexington Avenues where several New York hotels are based. Even people visiting reported seeing such an orb in the sky and immediately became just as curious as I was.

I based these observations on the buildings the orb was near. It seemed the orb moved in a slanted line, from SW (85/86th and Lexington) to NE (88th and 3rd).

My feelings were that of excitement and awe, but also disappointment that my video was cut short. I wish I could've gotten a better, longer video. I also took a video of a plane passing through after, to compare what both objects looked like.

I do remember seeing 2 or 3 planes passing while the event was taking place, though they were no where near the orb and much, much higher in altitude.

(Editor's Note: No video link was supplied with report.)
