MUFON Case # 22364
Event Date: 2010-03-17 16:45 GMT
Region: New York
Distance: One mile or less
Summary: motionless airborne cigar shaped object above hilltop.
Wife and I observed object above wooded hilltop on east side of NY Rt16 while driving south on NY Rt 16. Object was silver/white in color with slightly darker horzontal line running entire length. Ends of object were rounded.
Object appeared totally motionless perhaps 200-300 ft above hilltop. Distance between our vehicle (road) and hilltop is about 3000 linear ft. I would guess that the object's dimensions were perhaps 15-20 feet in height and 100 feet in length.
There were no clouds in the sky, and the object appeared to be solid and constant against blue sky.
At first I thought it was perhaps some type of balloon, but it was totally motionless on breezy day.
We drove on, I was driving but my wife kept constant visual on object until we passed a grove of trees near road which obscured her vision for 10 seconds. After we cleared tree obstruction, object was gone.
