A New York witness stepped outside after hearing a humming sound on January 5, 2011, and caught sight of a gray-colored "ship" with white lighting on its edges and no blinking lights, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The "large craft" was described as between 150 and 250-feet wide, floating at about 1,000 feet overhead, according to the witness.
The object made a left turn, headed north, and moved out of sight.
No town name was mentioned in the public portion of the MUFON report, which was filed on January 5, 2011. No images or video were included with the report.
New York is a current UFO ALERT 5 rating, with a lower number of UFO sightings nationally, but is on our Watch List. New York had 13 UFO sighting reports in December 2010.

NY, January 5, 2011 - Vibrates over house, 150ft wide, slowly moving, passes over me then heads north, 5 min from Stewart Airport, not a plane. MUFON Case # 27264.
I was standing in my kitchen facing east, talking with girlfriend and another couple over visiting. I feel and hear the humming sound go over my head heading east, im boggled, visiting girl suggests fighter planes, then i dont buy it. Run to front window (still humming noise loudly) and catch grayscale ship coloring underneath, white lighting on edges in 3-4 spots, solid and blinking, no other colors. Though star trek enterprise with the main part only, but a couple hundred feet wide thats all. Huge though.
Large craft approx 150-250ft wide if i had to guess, floated over my house heading Northeast, low altitude, 1000ft maybe ? At the highest. Then raised a little higher, made a swooping sideways left turn, could tell it was round or square shape, and headed north over the ridge out of sight. The largest and most convincing sighting ive had. I've seen small ones around here and there but this was insane. Several other small odd lights in the sky, but they are there often..
Hoping someone else sees of hears this thing, it was like a humming slash boat horn, very low alt, never seen anything like it. No time to go find camera i was speechless after i looked out the window, yelled for them to follow and ran outside as it had just passed overhead and was crossing my street.
