Location of Sighting: Albany, New York
Date of Sighting: September 29, 2016
Time of Sighting: 08:15 PM EDT
Description: It was a group of four lights. When I first saw them, there were flashing. They were grouped together, in some sort of horizontal formation. They were steadily drifting past Wolf Road, over I-87N and towards Albany Airport. Then, after they stopped flashing, they turned sideways, until they no longer appeared horizontal, but diagonal. (I honestly thought it was going to flip upside down or something.) Then the lights brightened, and they backtracked! They went back in the direction they came from!
I have seen plane headlights before, and these lights did NOT look like they belonged to a plane. I saw what looked like the body of the aircraft before it left, and it looked like it could have been an airplane, but there was no sound of a plane’s engine, and I didn’t see any wings.
I saw this as I was heading up the northway. I am just glad it didn’t distract me enough to make me crash my car. Still this was unlike anything else I have seen before. I have a great feeling inside me that tells me what I saw last night was NOT an airplane. And I know for a fact that planes don’t backtrack like that. That has never happened in Albany.
I am 100% certain that I was not the only one on the freeway who saw this.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
