A few years ago, when I lived on Long Island, I saw an unidentified flying object.

disclaimer of sorts: I am not saying it is aliens. I am simply saying, I saw something very strange. Mods, please move this if needed.

Circa 5-14-2010
Long Island, New York
Grumman

Please be gentle, this is not an informative post and is also my first. It is only me relating an experience, years ago, while driving with my ex.

I fell head over heels over my ex, shortly after moving to the strongest of islands. We got together quickly, and started to frequently hang out. My own shinnanigans later in our aquantence, led us to back roads of Suffolk County, in Long Island, near where they built at least one of the Apollo crafts, named Grumman. I enjoyed driving around, looking at the wild turkeys, the wild deer, the wild people, the parachuters. I enjoyed her company.

On one of these days, mid afternoon, we happened to be driving on the road that goes directly by the entrance to Grumman. Driving East, towards a town called Riverhead. Nearby the entrance, few people know, there is a graveyard from the (circa) 1800s. It is small, and quaint, and on the left hand side when approaching the East from this road. Around this graveyard is when my experience takes place.

I often times stare out windows, even while engaged in conversation. I enjoy the company of animals to people, more often then not, so looking for owls and the ilk is a weird way of me "staring off into space". So on this day, briefly after driving by Grumman, I was looking out the window, when above us, there was something either of us have issues explaining today. Before I continue, no, I was not driving. She stopped at one point to look, and saw it as well.

About half a mile above us, above a densely forested area, considering Long Island, were two separate things. Both were a type of black. There was an "X" and a "-". These two symbols perfectly represent the nature of what I saw. This is what I saw. A dark black X followed by a Dash that was slightly less black and looked like "X l", if you could imagine looking up and seeing two, large, solid silhouettes. They were solid looking, however, they seemed to lack depth. They made no sounds. I would estimate it to have been 10,000 feet. One followed the other at a consistent basis. Both were probably about a quarter mile wide by about the same length. Approximately 5 minutes after initial discovery, nothing is seen.

I find this interesting for two reasons:

Grumman + Apollo = hmph

Southaven is in a near proximity. Wouldn't be the first time an unidentified flying object happened to grace the presence of Suffolk County, NY

Hope you enjoy this short tale. Feel free to ask questions.

Could it have been a blimp towing an x?

(Insert X files theme)

Lol I wish. It was much weirder than something like that. She was, and may be, still as skeptical, but even she still has zero idea what the hell it was

P.s. The X was before the "dash"

That has got to be one of the weirdest descriptions that I've ever heard. What in Sam Hell could be floating around like that?
I understand the possibility of inter-dimensional beings or conventionally weird aircraft, but flying letters and symbols? That takes the cake, so far.

I agree whole heartedly, donk. I personally think the most reasonable explanation, which is still far fetched, Is some sort of projection or laser. I don't know though!

UFO'S are very common in 2016. Have a look at this story, just like those Alien's said, sightings would be slowly very common incident.

I'm sorry, I was lighting up my cig, I didn't notice.
Well you see guys, just checkout MUFON right now, there are at least 5-6 reports a day I guess..if not more.. sightings have increased. But most pictures can be debunked as a Photoshopped hoax, natural flying debris, your story however sounds original. UFO casebook has lots of similar incident reports like yours. I am new in this forum, cannot figure out how to create a new thread, I click the button it shows empty page, I guess I need to update my browser. So I will post my 50 cents, okay.. So I have numerous strange people contacting me via facebook for a couple of years. These people send me friend request, I accept and right away they go offline. I checkout their wall, there are like 4 pictures uploaded in 7 hours/2 hours/1 day(varies). Suggesting these are new accounts.. are they hacking trick or something else? Also since when I am deep into UFOLOGY I get a feeling of being watched midnight. Maybe it's just normal paranoia due to reading too much weird strange phenomenon midnight. If it wasn't only cigarettes I would had been gone insane man. This world is strange.. strange.. god anything is possible.. anything.. a reply to: PlatypusHerd

How To Hack Facebook Using 3 Trusted Friends



Hello everyone "Hacking Facebook Account" is most popular term in the Web,I had found a new security hole(trick) in the FB,which is hacking facebook using three trusted friends technique. So now we can Hack Facebook easily using its official feature.This hack is done with the help of new password recovery feature of Facebook.Facebook recently released new way to Recover Account Password using"Three Trusted Friends".If we forgot the Facebook account password then FB will send unique security code to three friends. Then we have to ask that security code to each three friend. And after giving that codes to FB we can recover the Facebook password.

Thank you so much for the reply! I had a feeling! This is happening for 2 years! 2 freaking years! I block those accounts, I even blocked some of my friends who were envious of me just to make sure! These still keep coming, what is even more strange is, when I create a new account, those friend requests of people with accounts of same nature keep coming!!! It's like someone is after me, tracking me, monitoring me. There's a saying know, a Ufologists life is not entirely safe, there are risks. You should google to figure out how many famous and respectful ufologists are getting murdered. I am just a minor proton if I have to compare myself with those ufologists, so maybe it is not related to my work, I might have some enemy who is after me for different cause than studying UFO's. a reply to: Layaly

Is that a smashed comet or an X-Wing fighter? Scientists are offering up their own theories as to what created the striking star-inspired image, which was captured by NASA's Hubble telescope in January. "Two small and previously unknown asteroids recently collided, creating a shower of debris that is being swept back into a tail from the collision site by the pressure of sunlight," said principal investigator David Jewitt of the University of California at Los Angeles. The object - dubbed “P/2010 A2” after it was discovered in early January by the Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research program sky survey - has traits similar to a comet, but the x-shape appears disconnected from the tail. "The filamentary appearance of P/2010 A2 is different from anything seen in Hubble images of normal comets," Jewitt said. Sci-fi lovers may instead go for a more fantastical theory, believing it to be the "Last Starfighter" or, perhaps, a Kilrathi dreadnought from the Wing Commander video game.

Or just copy this into Google

Hubble telescope captures image of mysterious x-shaped object in

The pictures are incredible too

There is one comment

the X was not connected to the tail

that reminded me of you specifically sayin the X came bofore the I

I mean common does not sound like two separate coincidences this is way too bizzare

Man I really don't know with the shadow that was a stupid think to say from me but it's seriously trippy

This is your area of interest with these bizzare meteor events

But see unless you wouldn't say this I would never read that story what's even more crazy is so darn close to the day u mentioned

I mean they never saw anything like it before and no one even knows wtf it is really

Not stupid at all! You were the one who found a connection between the two events. I know about the same as you, I would imagine, so it's still us figuring it out! Thank you!
