Unreported Daylight UFO sighting – Monmouth County, NJ – Summer, 1959/60

On a warm summer evening in early July of that year, I, my family along with several neighbors were witnesses to a unique daylight UFO sighting that to this day has never been reported or satisfactorily explained. The object observed was that of a shiny metallic sphere having the appearance of silver or liquid mercury. Its approximate size on retrospect was about that of a pencil eraser held at arms length. The sphere also displayed flashing red and white lights that seemed to flash randomly all around it mainly at its equator.

What makes this sighting even more interesting is that the location of the farm from which we viewed the object is adjacent to the U.S. Navy road and railroad that links NWS (then NAD) Earle (the main munitions storage facility in Colts Neck, NJ) to its pier facilities located in Leonardo, NJ (on Raritan Bay). The road itself is restricted to only military use, primarily that of moving naval munitions from the secure storage facilities at the Colts Neck site to the various Naval ships that tie up to the piers located at the Leonardo facility.

It has long been “rumored” that the inventory stored at Earle included conventional as well as “other” types of “non-conventional” munitions. At the time of the sighting, my father, was employed as a farmhand by a Mr. Murray Rosenberg, then owner of Dorbrook farms as well as Miles Shoes stores (a national shoe chain). We lived in a modest farmhouse on the site facing the road then known as RD#1, Eatontown. Our house also directly faced the Navy road that was approximately several hundred yards away. Looking from my front porch, across this highway one could easily view the government road then known as Normandy Road, or just “the Navy Road” that was just across a large field to the east of the RD#1, Eatontown.

Hmmm...

NWS Earle is only 18 miles from NAS Lakehurst, which was, at the time, the largest blimp base in the world, and flew regular patrol missions along the New Jersey coast up to the mid-60s.

An object at 8000 feet altitude can be seen for about 100 miles, if it's large enough. In order to be large enough to be seen as a discrete object and not just a point of light, an object needs to be at least 0.50 degrees wide, which is the absolute limit of human visual acuity.

At 18 miles, an object would have to be around 83 feet across to be barely visible on an absolutely clear day if you have near-perfect vision.

Seen from 18 miles, a 257' blimp (ZNP-K) would subtend an angle of .155 degree, over three times the minimum angle, and a 343' blimp (ZPG) would would be .207 degree wide, four times better; both were regularly flown from Lakehurst. The smallest blimps stationed at Lakehurst, the L-class trainers, would have appeared 0.89 degree stem-to-stern. So, it was at least possible.

Now, if the thing seen looked like an eraser (0.25") at arms-length (24"), we can figure it was around 0.6 degree wide. If it were a blimp, it would be between 2 1/2 and 4 1/2 miles away, between Howell and Farmingdale, say. At anything over one or two miles, there would be no details visible at all; it would simply look like a smooth silver ball, cigar, or disk.

We know the Navy used blimps as well as ships for radar picket duty up to the time they (officially, at least) got out of the blimp business . An advantage blimps had over ships was that they could trek inland to offer temporary long-range radar coverage to sensitive areas if, for instance, the local early-warning site was down for maintainance. They could easily loiter in the area for several days, and up to weeks at a time if needed. Of course, such a mission would be highly classified: there's no advantage letting the enemy know one of your radar sites is down. If Earle was used for nuclear storage, it's a possible scenario.

Has nothing to do with Lakehurst. Do you have any idea how far Lakehurst is from the waterfront? There is more there, keep digging

NWS Earle is about an hour or so down the road. Never heard of anything strange from anyone i've known living in that area or even so much as an urban legend regarding UFO's.

I do remember hearing about some park near where i'm at in central jersey that a UFO supposedly landed in the 70's or early 80's. I can't remember any of the details other than a doorman at a nearby apartment complex witnessed the event along with other third parties.

well, you just never know what kind of people stop by this site. Someone could come here, who knows the base inside of out, andd the ongoings there, because they are key card essential level AO red. You never know, someday someone may come to this site, who does

Flying silver object near a Navy facility which is near another Navy facility chock full of flying silver objects. Your right, there's no possible way they're related.

It's about 15 miles, as the blimp flies, from Lakehurst to the Atlantic Ocean, although I don't see what that has to do with it.

They are far from being near each other. It is is closer to the mainside, but even further from the waterfront. I given you something, if you decide to dig further, you may just find something. If not, your loss

Now you're making no sense at all.

If you think there's something to find, just spit it out.

Maybe your avatar describes you all too accurately.

Aside from the fact that the USS Solar was destroyed at the Naval Ammunition Depot at Earle, NJ, I see no correlation.


  • The USS Solar (DE-221) served as a destroyer escort ship between the US and the Mediterranian during WWII.
  • It saw combat in December 1944 when 2 tanker ships in it's convoy were attacked off of the Straits of Gibraltar
  • On April 30, 1946, the USS Solar was destroyed due to an explosives accident while unloading ammuntion at the Naval Ammunition Depot at Earle, NJ.
  • It was decomissioned May 21st, 1946, then towed out to sea and sunk on June 9, 1946

More info can be found here and here.

Sounds like they're clearing cruft (including munitions) from under the pier and resetting the piles.
They've got pictures, too.

Maybe you could drop by and ask them what's happening. They'd probably be glad to give you a tour.

That site is out of date, by a long shot. Where is the mention of dredging on pier 1a for "munitions"? Its not there. The dredging mentioned there, was the dredging that was taking place for the reconstruction of pier 3, which is at this time seured, the dredging that is, construction of of pier 3, is still underway. What is mentioned of pier 1a, happened a long time ago, that has nothing to do with the current project. In fact all those projects were completed quite some time ago, by PWO, and contractors. The picture front gate on the waterfront is from at least 2 years ago

Im part of the project. No they arent going to give tours. Look, I can only give you so much information, what you do with it is your choice

When I was a kid growing up in NJ, I used to camp out with the Boy Scouts inside Earl. The area we camped in was used for training, I believe. Lots of shell casings and such lying around. (My brother was thrown out of scouts for tossing a bullet into the campfire...ahhhhh, but thats anopther story). It was where the Battleship NJ, (I think it was the NJ) Used to come in to get loaded up.
Camped out many times and in all kinds of weather. Once in a snowstorm with a couple of feet of snow. On sundays we would drive over to Ft. Hancock in Sandy Hook for services. I do remember a few strange things there. I also remember touring a Nike Missle Base near my familys home in central Jersey. And speaking of Ft. Hancock, we would sneek into the large gun bunkers that were abandoned and that was really cool. Old Gun placements from WWII.
I'll be right back

the hack, who got into Colts Neck computer system. No it does not. We are dredging pier 1a, round the clock 24-7, looking for, lets just say "munitions", but lets say there is more to the story. No matter, our project is almost complete, took longer than expected, but we found most of the "munitions". Did anyone know NWS Earle used to load nuclear weapons, and other advanced weapons? You should really find out, what else they house in some of the bunkers besides munitions

logreq,
If one might want to "find out"what kind of "munitions might be missing, where might that someone look?
This loading site has been there for many years. Have the "munitions " been in the water for a long time? Are these something that we would have heard about?


Terrestrial or Extraterrestrial?
