another hotbed of ufo activity is the wanaque resevoir in northern nj (only about a 20 min drive from vernon nj)- at least it was back in the 80's-- i remember people coming from miles around to watch for ufo activity-
plus dont forget that the hudson valley (especially pine bush n.y) is a huge hot spot for ufo activity. there was a ufo hunters episode about the hudson valley and pine bush. stewart air force base is a 15 min ride from pine bush so its no wonder that there is a lot of weird # in the sky? and this is right around the corner form vernon nj.
The case remained open (among many UFO groups anyway), until this week when, on April Fool's day, two 20-something college kids, Chris Russo and Joe Rudy, admitted to the hoax.
"We set out into the woods ...carrying one helium tank, five balloons, five flares, fishing line, duct tape, and a video camera," the duo explain now. "After filling up one 3-foot balloon with helium, we tied about five feet of fishing line to the balloon, secured the line with tape, then tied and taped the flare to the other end of the line. Once all five balloons were ready, we struck the 15-minute flares and released them into the sky."
