He took down all the details of our sighting including a map of each light on each saucer. He also had me make a good drawing of all I had seen.
"Now" he said, " Do you have any Questions?" First I asked him if he had seen it, he answered that he had not. Then I wanted to know if anyone else had seen it? He told me there were over 1000 calls from others who also witnessed something. I asked him if it had been over our small town of Bayport? He told me to my surprise that it was thought to have been approximately in the center of Long Island which would have made it about 10 miles away. That would make this thing considerably larger than I thought.
The policeman told me that they thought it was estimated at somewhere like a mile in diameter. It was proceeding eastward down the center of the island. He told me they think it s course took it over Brookhaven National Laboratory along the electric power lines, down the center of Long Island till it went out to sea past Montauk Point.
Thousands more were suspected to have seen it that did not or could not call in to leave a report.
This is where my part of this sighting ends. I regret not following it up during the rest of that summer. Now years later I wish I knew what it was I saw so clearly that night when I was 16. That event has stayed with me my entire life. I hope this may be the year we all learn more about all these experiences, encounters and sightings so many of us share.“
When Jack shared that story with me I was fascinated as I too saw a UFO that year about 7 miles from the location he did in October. I too noticed a revolving top on the craft I saw and I too was with friends who really did not have much to say after the event.
I do not know what was going on at that time on Long Island but I do know many islanders did see things. I also know that many sightings were seen on Fire Island, which is faced out to the open Atlantic Ocean.
I will continue to write the stories of the paranormal events that surround Long Island and hope one day we can all understand and figure out what is going on with this very unknown yet constantly seen world of the UFO ‘s and those who pilot them.
Jack has renewed his interest in what he saw that night long ago and is going to investigate his sighting by researching all he can about that night and that event.
For now be careful out there and keep looking up! Remember the best thing to do if you see something you do not understand is to find others and remove yourself from any danger by keeping your distance between the unknown and the known!
