Drawing Made by Investigator Based on Witness Description.

Date of Sighting: March 2, 2008
Time of Sighting: 9 PM EST
Date Sighting Reported: March 2, 2008
Duration of Sighting: 2 to 3 Seconds
Location of Sighting: Oceanside, New York (See Map)
Latitude: 40.63 Degrees North
Longitude: 73.64 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Few Clouds at 25,000 Feet. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the North at 7 MPH.

Description: I first observed (not strange)some unusual contrails. After 3 or 4 minutes I observed heading from north to south a straight line with 3 dim pinkish amber lights (not blinking) with straight edge on sides moving perfectly straight, but on a roughly 15 to 20 degree angle with no accompanying sound. It could have been maybe 1000 feet up and was moving at very fast rate of speed (perhaps 700 to 800 mph), but slow enough to follow. It headed straight for the south shore of Long Island at approximately 9 PM (Long Beach area). I have lived by JFK and La Guardia airports all of my life, but have never seen anything like this. It brought tears to my eyes because I could not understand it.

Comments: The witness has described something that he thought was quite unusual. Given that he has lived my two major airports all of his life should make him a reasonable observer of conventional aircraft. His description is quite unusual and I am not sure what he sighted. The object was moving fast considering that transcended the sky in 2 to 3 seconds. Objects of this shape and behavior are not the norm: Many reports that we receive are of rectangular (or boomerang shape), move slowly, and are silent (like this sighting).
