UFOs over New York (vanity)

Posted on 10/17/2008 6:52:41 AM PDT by wtc911

Ok, a vanity about UFOs no less but....I'll lay it out as I saw it....

On Wednesday 10/15/08 at @ 17:35 I was on the SW corner of Northern Blvd. and 254 Street in Little Neck, Queens, NYC. Conditions were CAVU. My grandson, a friend (40s) and I watched two very small white objects remain motionless at avery high altitude. They were high enough for a commercial jet to pass well below them. At @ 17:52 they disappeared. They did not transit the sky, they just disappeared.

Sounds like high-altitude weather balloons.

“two very small white objects remain motionless at avery high altitude.”

Those are called stars.

Balloons? Balloons are designed to flow with upper level streams. These were motionless for at least six minutes. I don’t know how long they were there before we spotted them.

Aliens visited, took a look at Manhattan, and said, “I’m outta here.”

LOL

This is such an unlikely location for a UFO- right in the middle of LaGuardia and JFK Airports, and almost directly over a military base in Bayside (Fort something, the name eludes me right now.)

Reflecting the last rays of the sun; when the sun sank below the horizon, they “disappeared”.

Satellites. From your vantige point they appeared to be stationary. They were reflecting sunlight until their position changed. Pretty common.

I was on I495 about that time yesterday headed back to New Jersey from Long Island. The atmospheric conditions were pretty neat yesterday, and in a moment of stalled traffic, I even took this picture out of my car window...

Curious you should mention that because I also saw two lights at very high altitude, and although they DID turn out to be an airliner, for maybe about 15-20 seconds, they did look like two separate lights....

Closer to LaGuardia (8 miles to the NW) than JFK (15 miles to the SW) but in these were SE of my position. Fort Totten is @ 3 miles NW of where I was standing.

My wife has said for years that she saw something decades ago. I told her that ufos are like ghosts. If you've seen none you believe, if you haven't you don't. I just changed sides.

btw...I am an amateur astronomer - I know what stars look like and I've never seen one in daylight...have you?

That was my first thought. It's also very difficult to determine the distance to a bright light in the night sky because there's no reference point.

That makes sense except that geostationary (geosynchronous) satellites must orbit directly over the Equator.

Were there any clouds in the sky that might have blocked the sun’s rays toward the objects?

Where in the sky was this? Directly overhead, towards the east, what? How high above the horizon?

If it was a geosynchronous satellite or two, it would be about where all the Direct TV dishes are pointing...

Don't you read your Bible?

7Then Hillary called the House secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8He sent them to Hawaii and said, "Go and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him."

9After they had heard the queen, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east[e] went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Ann, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh. 12And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Hillary, they returned to their country by another route.,

13When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Barack Sr in a dream. "Get up," he said, "take the child and his mother and escape to Indonesia. Stay there until I tell you, for Hillary is going to search for the child to usurp him." 14So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Indonesia, 15where he stayed until the retirement of Hillary. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: "Out of Indonesia I called my son. And you shall name him Barack, and all the world will call him lord.."[f]

Maybe it did, and the ramifications are not apparent yet. I feel corralled by doom.

They were to my SE. Dishes in this area orient to the SW. I'd put the angle at @ 75-80 degrees. Geosynchronous satellites orbit only over the equator. I was at @ 40-46 north.

I don't know exactly what I saw, iow, I can't identify it. Nothing in my experience or education satisfies my question about it. I'm just reporting things exactly as I saw them.
