Hi, I'm new to the forums. But I have to discuss this and be honest. I'm not a ufo craze I mean I love alien movies any and all because of
possabilities, i never had an encounter. But maybe this was one because it shook my belief system.
Last night around 8:15pm New York City corona,queens a few miles from laguardia airport. driving in the opposite direction from the airport to take my
g/f home she notice a plane in the sky that she asks if it looks like its not moving. Now Im aware of perceptive distance and the optical illusion on
two moving objects. I've experienced it before with the planes that fly around here. Again since I live near the airport I see planes every day all
At first I didnt pay much attention because of the illusion so I explained it to her but as i was getting closer it really stood out to to me so I
pulled over almost under it. Here are the details exactly:
it was about 500ft from the ground over the buildings, just sitting in the sky with NO movement at ALL... like a rock in the sky. nothing anywhere
around it and at that time no other planes coming in.
It by image was as clear as Im writing it, a full on commercial airline jet with no markings, no decals, but all white with what I think was between
10-15 passenger windows twin engines on the tail just like a commercial jet nothing strange about the body just its appearance.
All windows and all normal airplane lights were on.
What was just as strange as it sitting there like a parked car in the sky. No movement, no air lag, no sway from winds as its the cold season here in
NY, winds are high and temp is low. But it was lit up like a christmas tree compared to other boeings flying the sky or what I have seen other jets
flying. It had too many lights, more than normal. All passenger lights were on and I mean so brightly on from my view distance that anyone inside
wouldnt be able to see because the interior lights are blinding.
From my knowledge and research, flight sims, military games, real pilot testimonies a plane of that type and size cannot hover at all no matter the
right conditions which are impossible for its size, its too heavy.
I know of the aircraft that can such as choppers, certain fighter jets, and other military aircrafts. But all military crafts which can usually have
rotors or engine thrusts like the harrier jet. but not on a craft like this.
One more thing as it was sitting there. It gave no noise at all. No engine sound.
We watched it for about 15secs. Now as I say to myself in my head maybe I should whip my phone out to record it in high def. What do you know it
starts moving forward over the buildings out of my view like it knew what I was about to do. But as it did, again NO engine sounds enaging. no noise,
it just moves/flys. couldnt follow it. Didnt zoom off, but just act like it was gaining speed, like a takeoff in midair.
Today after researching the question if it can, and getting no from everyone, similiar storys from around the country from people who saw the same
thing. I spoke to co-workers, my family, which laughed at the thought which just makes me seem right from the beginning that its not possible.
Then what was it? it wasnt a balloon or balloon shaped, that would have lead to the fact of air sway which it did not have.
Anyone else have a recent sighting? The most recent was last year 2009 I found.
