Man Recalls Sighting of Spherical Shaped Object On Airline Flight

Drawing of Silver Sphere Sighted From Aircaft
Drawing Provided by Witness

Date of Sighting: Approximately 1987 (Exact Date Unknown)
Time of Sighting: Daytime (Exact Time Unknown)
Date Sighting Reported: March 21, 2007
Duration of Sighting: 1 to 2 Seconds
Location of Sighting: 25 Minutes From Newark, NJ on Flight to Nashville, TN
Latitude: Exact Location Unknown
Longitude: Exact Location Unknown
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Partly Cloudy

Description: The picture well describes the sighting. The witness sighted the object while flying from Newark, NJ to Nashville at 25 minutes into the flight. The aircraft would have been in "climb out" at 25 minutes and had not yet reached an apparent cloud deck. (The height of the cloud deck is not known.) The witness stated that several people on the "right hand" side of the aircraft saw the object. (He got up after sighting the object and asked people seated on the right side of the aircraft if they had seen the object.)

Investigator's Notes: This is an interesting case in that we have an unknown object close to an airliner. UFOs that approach close to airliners should be considered a safety concern.
