“My sister observed a brilliant light in the sky,” the witness stated.“When I looked the light was steady, didn’t move for about three minutes. I quickly thought it was a UFO.”

The two decided to pull over for a better look.

“It impacted us and my sister parked the car and I got my cell phone to take pictures, which are the ones attached. It looked like a cigar type.”

Then two more objects showed up.

    Com’on this is a plane smoke trail at dawn, I see these almost every evening. The guy took pictures with his phone and he couldn’t take a video? a video would show is a moving jet trail.
    BTW I have had real UFO and orbs sightings so I am not a skeptic, I just want to call things for what they are.

    This report is credible. I live in New York State too and have been spotting these cigar-shaped UFOs in counties South Colonie, NY. For some reason, I have been spotting these type of UFOs in the evening, at night, and early in the morning before dawn, daily for the past month. Something is happening. Are they landing? If so, where? Usually these UFOs are not spotted this regularly, or as frequently. Is the coming predicted Pole Flip getting ready to happen? Are we supposed to be getting ready for a mass extinction event? Please don’t tell me that Nibiru is the cause of climate change and earth changes. This planet goes through these changes every 3600 years. We just happen to be living during the 3600th year. Nibiru may be causing these earth changes to be catastrophic, so the Pole Flip may be a mass extinction event. Where is the mainstream media and NASA on this?
