Date of Sighting: June 20, 2007
Time of Sighting: 1:58 PM EDT
Date Sighting Reported: June 20, 2007
Duration of Sighting: About 30 Seconds
Location of Sighting: The Bronx, New York (See Map)
Latitude: 40.78 Degrees North (Estimated)
Longitude: 73.98 Degrees West (Estimated)
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Few Clouds at 3,000 Feet, Scattered Clouds at 8,500 Feet, Broken Clouds at 25,000 Feet. Visibility 10 Miles. Winds Were From the ESE at 11 Knots.

Description: The witness phoned the report in about 2 hours after it occurred. He was looking at aircraft taking off. (He assumed that this aircraft was departing from LaGuardia Airport.) Through binoculars he saw a U.S. Airways airliner moving toward his position. He then saw a spinning, shimmering black object move across his field of view to the left. The object was shaped like a bell. He heard no sounds from the object. The object passed under the airliner, but the witness wasn't sure of the distance of the object below the airliner. The witness said that he was very familiar with blimps and other craft that regularly fly over New York. He said this object was most unusual.

Investigator's Notes: The witness sounded very credible and knowledgable about aircraft. He was quite concerned about confidentiality and did not reveal his name. He regularly watches aircraft and has never seen anything like this object. This is another case of unknown objects flying through controlled airspace at busy airports. Does this pose a safety hazard?
