(And space portal!
See last link to ATS thread)
Surfing the web and came across a strange UFO encounter, New Jersey in '66. It had an abundance of credible witnesses, that was what caught my
attention at first.
Nothing showed on ATS search exactly re: this incident so thought I'd would put my feet in the water here. This is the wiki page report on the
Jan 1966 Wanaque Reservoir NJ - It shot a beam of light down towards the ice
UFO in the form of a bright light seen in the vicinity of Wanaque Reservoir, led to traffic jams and overloaded police communications
networks. The UFO shifted color on a continuing basis. It shot a beam of light down towards the ice near the dam, maintained its position for another
half hour and flew off to the southeast. Another UFO, sighted the next night near Wanaque, was observed flying in zigzag pattern. The mayor, Warren
Hagstrom, as well as Chief of Police Floyd Elston and captain Joe Sisco watched the craft for some time.Two reserve officers, Sgt. Ben Thompson and
patolman Edward Wester, also witnessed the craft along with a number of other observers.
Did some digging and this is the most detail I can find...it is the "source" the wiki entry references, just a couple pages long but a great read -
chronicling events of Jan 11 and 12 calling it the Rosewell of NJ. Good statements from many credible witnesses..

This also related long article - very interesting from man who did extensive witness interviews immediately following the incident. Interesting
perspective here. Fascinating stuff.
What Happened At Wanaque, N.J.? (An Objective Look At UFOs) By Lloyd Mallan
An interesting aside: the natives pronounce Wanaque as "Wahn-a-cue." Those who were not born in Wanaque Borough, or who live in nearby
communities, pronounce the name as "Wahn-a-kee." No matter how you may pronounce it, Wanaque, N.J., has been the scene of many UFO sightings.Among
the responsible persons there who have reported UFOs have been the Borough Mayor, the Mother Superior of Mount Calvary Convent, several members of the
Pompton Lakes Police Force, many members of the Reservoir Police Force (including its Chief), Borough Councilmen, a newspaper editor, an electrical
engineering student and a mathematics teacher.
"You mean, it made almost a 180-degree turn?" I asked. "No. A 90-degree turn, I would say. It came up and made a right-angle turn straight across
and then made another right-angle turn and continued onward." "These were square turns, in other words?" I said. "Yes. Square turns. Completely square
turns - which was another thing that brought my attention to it. What I didn't realize then was that the course this thing was taking, from where I
was located, was directly toward the Wanaque Reservoir. I later plotted its course on a Geodetic Survey map and wound up with almost the exact
position over the Wanaque Reservoir where the police officers saw the saucer, or whatever it was they saw.
"Anyway, I couldn't explain that transverse movement. I couldn't explain the brilliance of the thing. So I felt that when I got to work, I would keep
quiet about it. Because I thought that maybe the guys on the paper would think I was flipping my lid.
"After I reached the paper, things began to develop this way: We started getting telephone calls, not from the cranks - but from the police.
We got a call from the Pompton Lakes Police Headquarters, which acts as a sort of monitoring network for several communities in this part of Passaic
County, New Jersey. And they said that Wanaque was having a series of UFO sightings. Their timing was about 6:40, which was within the realm of
possibility from the time that I saw this thing.
There is a thread from ATS mentions Wanaque
and a "portal"
or vortex? www.abovetopsecret.com...
Titled: Any updates on the Wanaque, NJ vortex? thread started by: AlnilamOmega.
"Aliens Said to Observe Earth Through Vortex October 2, 2000 - A UFO investigations organization says recent research by the American Science
Foundation has verified the presence of New Jersey vortex that enables alien intelligent species to enter Earth's environment. Reported by Above Top
Secret weekly newsletter, the so- called vortex, near Wanaque, is a "doorway system that provides an unknown species or several unknowns to travel
reasonably without observation" from an unknown other side of the portal.
Edit: I also came across reports of mothmen sighted in this area that were impressive esp considering the last sentence of the above ext. quotation.
This would qualify as an unknown species.
