It was Christmas Eve 1958! I remember the date because I had gotten a football for Christmas! I also had just gotten an interest in astronomy.
I was walking to our family car. It was quiet in the Bronx nyc that nite, a couple of inches of snow had fallen.
The sky was clear and I was looking at the stars. I noticed one star moving very slowly. Then I realized it was not a star but a triangle shaped object lite up in the center. I stopped and stared at it for about a minute before my dad called for me to get in the car. I took my eyes for the UFO for about 30 seconds, and told my dad.
He didn’t want to be bothered so when I looked up again I could not find it. I know in 1958 there were no planes close to looking like what I had just seen!
I have mostly kept quiet about seeing this UFO over the years. But, I know what I saw!!! I did check the newspapers for the next few days to see it anyone else witnessed this siting.
No, nothing was ever mentioned. I can still see it and to this day, I know what I saw!!!!!!

Roger and his family lived in New York City, in the Bronx specifically. It was late June 1966, Roger, his wife, daughter 12 and two sons, ages eight and six, decided to get up before sun rise and hit the open road for a day trip to Pennsylvania. The family of six were traveling south on the Throgs Neck suspension bridge just prior to sunrise.
“We were probably about 2/3 of the way across the bridge, when the entire family witnessed a huge green orb UFO hovering above the bridge. My wife and the two boys were excited, yelling to me to look. I remember that it was so close to the bridge that my daughter began screaming because she thought this orb was going to hit the bridge and knock it down.”
Roger tells us that the entire sighting lasted probably no longer than 30 seconds and no one in the car remembers observing this green orb flying away. He says that it just seemed to disappear. What has bothered Roger all these years is that some of the family members clearly remember the event and other have clearly forgotten it. “I think that it is very odd that something that amazing could be so easily forgotten.“ . . .
