had a classic saucer-like appearance: illuminated silver-metallic...

Montvale Park Ridge, New Jersey - 07-22-15

I saw an object (without magnification) that I could not recognize on Wednesday night, July 22nd approximately 10:15pm (2015), shortly after I drove past the Montvale service area of the Garden State Parkway driving northbound.

My view of the object was extremely clear and distinct.

It appeared to be some 150 feet across and about 1/2 mile away when I was closest to it, just above the tree line to the east. It seemed to be moving slowly to the north or was stationary as I was able to get much closer to the object, driving toward the New York State Thruway.

It first had a classic saucer-like appearance: illuminated silver-metallic with a slightly flattened rim that projected around the middle.

As I headed further north, it seemed to have changed its appearance. From my vantage point, it appeared brightest on the bottom with a golden glow, fading further up the object to orange, reddish, and then dark on top.

Despite the apparent change, it was still well illuminated, apparently from within, having taken on an overall dusky orange color with what I recall were 3 red lights on the bottom.

The rim appeared to have tilted so that the closer portion was lower than the far end. This made the craft look somewhat like the planet Saturn (but much closer!), with its orange appearance, dark top, and rim that looked like the ring of a planet.

Also, like Saturn, there seemed to be a gap between the rim and sphere!

As cars on the Garden State drove northbound, almost all slowed down dramatically, whether because their occupants were afraid of it or they simply wanted a better look.

I was also driving northbound in the area for about 3-4 minutes, and gaps in the tree line enabled my view about 1/3 of the time.

This case is under investigation by Ken Pfeifer Chief Investigator for MUFON New Jersey
