A New Jersey witness at Hamilton reported watching and videotaping a cylinder-shaped UFO that appeared to move in a controlled manner, according to testimony in Case 58173 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The reporting witness and her husband were in their backyard at 10:39 p.m. on July 18, 2014, when bright red lights were first seen moving right-to-left about a mile away in the sky just above the trees.
“Mostly red with a yellow blinking – irregular beat,” the witness stated.“It then moved closer and I realized I was seeing something weird. I told my husband to turn around because I was looking at something very odd. It was hovering at that point, then moved towards us (closest it got to us – maybe 0.25 miles away).”
They watched the object for about 30 seconds and the husband began filming it using his cell phone (video seen above).
“Unfortunately the night-time contrast on the phone filming stinks, so there is no differentiation of treeline and sky, and lights are blurred together.”
But the witness was able to see the object very clearly with the naked eye.
“At this time I could make out the object pretty well: cylinder-shaped with a triangle top, lights were now separated into four horizontal and parallel rows of bright dots/bulbs. All were a bright red, with the bottom two rows adding green and yellow irregularly.”
The object also emitted a sound for a short period of time.
“We were very quiet and I swore I could hear it. It sounded like a quiet wind machine, maybe a slight buzzing. Not as loud as a helicopter. This lasted approx. 10-15 seconds. Then it moved back so quickly, but smoothly, approximately one mile back, began hovering again and the lighting changed to a red X with a greenish irregular blinking light in the middle. Occasionally more red lights in a thin line lit up on the right side of the X. I could not hear it anymore. This lasted approximately 10 seconds.”
The object then moved further away and the witnesses were now only able to make out that it was a red light with a greenish light irregularly blinking.”
