UFOs over New Jersey described as ‘rocket-like’

A New Jersey witness at Edison reported watching three “rocket-looking” objects crossing the sky north to south beginning at 10:05 p.m. on December 18, 2014, according to testimony in Case 62064 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness had just stepped outside with an uncle when the objects were first seen.

“Looked up and three objects came from the north to the south about at two-second intervals right over our heads,” the witness stated.

The witness described the objects.

“They appeared to be rocket-looking by the flame-like light coming out the back of them. There were misty clouds they were traveling through (in and out) and I could get a clear look at their shape, which was solid and missile-like with no wings.”

The witness says he is able to see known objects in the sky constantly.

“I live near three major airports, so I see jets all the time. At night there is a constant display of about 4-8 at any given time. These were silent and lower than the other jets in the area.”

The witness is trying to rule out anything known.

“They looked like shooting stars, but were traveling at conventional speed as compared to other jets flying overhead at other times. My uncle witnessed them also but his vision is not that great. But he did see the yellow flame-like light coming out the back of these three objects.”

Edison is a township in Middlesex County, New Jersey, population 99,967.

    It was in North OC moving south then curving to the west until out of sight. I couldn’t Make out any details. The color was very bright yellow-orange – just like from a rocket engine I’ve seen launched from Vandenberg. It was a pretty large oblong light when I first saw it and as it came in my direction became smaller and losing any shape so it appeared round to me. Either it was becoming dimmer on its own or it could have been gaining a lot of altitude to make it appear smaller. Gaining altitude makes sense as it appeared to be moving very slow – like a single engine personal aircraft. It kept getting smaller as it headed west until out of sight. Total time I watched was about five minutes.
