Jersey City, New Jersey - 07-03-1992
I was living in Jersey City at the time, and I was coming from my second job at a video store, riding my bike, since it was only five blocks away, and as I was one block from my house.
I saw out of the corner of my eyes, what I thought was a meteor because it was coming straight down at lightning speed, so I looked up and it was like an orange fireball when it was coming down.
When it got to, I would guess 200 feet from the ground, it stopped and thatís when I saw that it wasnít a meteor. It was a flying disk and it looked like it was a meteor because it was coming down on its edge, but as it stopped it slowly began to turn right side up and thatís when I saw that it was dark grey on top.
Then it slowly turned on it edge and I saw the bottom. It had 5 pentagon-shaped lights which covered the whole underside. They were emerald colored and they were arranged one in the middle and the rest around it.
Then it just shot up at a high rate of speed after being just hovering. It just accelerated so fast that my eyes could not follow it and it did all this without a single bit of sound. Thatís why I know this thing was not made here.
All flying machines made by us make sound and none had the flying characteristics of this thing. I stood motionless as I saw it and my tears started to come out, I don't know why, because I felt no fear at all, just an overwhelming feeling of disbelief, and then admiration.
I remember I stood there for about half an hour after it left, just looking up, and my tears coming out. I went home and never talked about it until a few years later.
I just know that people look at you like you were on drugs when you talk about these things, so I kept my mouth shut, especially from my dad.
