Carteret, NJ / Arthur Kill, NY Lights
New York Strange Phenomena Investigators
July 14, 2001 (Evening)
Unidentified objects appeared as lights in a huge V-type formation moving silently through the air over the Arthur Kill Waterway (just South of Newark International Airport). Witnessed by hundreds of onlookers, including police officers and a church reverend, the sighting was reported the next day by every major news organization. The event was video taped, and also corresponds to a missing-time experience reported by a man in Fort Lee, NJ.
