Eyewitness states: 
"Last night in New York (Aug 30th) around 10pm I noticed from the apartment windows overlooking the Hudson looking out across to Jersey City from Lower Manhattan a hovering, stationary-seeming airborne object over Jersey City. It had a bright red light flashing regularly underneath. I enjoy aviation and frequently look out of the apartment windows to see what's what. I knew this wasn't a plane from first glance. I looked at it long and hard because it had an odd bulk to its shape. It seemed too big for a helicopter, and probably therefore was a Blimp. My feeling was that it was unidentifiable by the naked eye. It made me pretty inquisitive to know what it was. I watched it hardly moving, maybe progressing but very slow. Logic told me it HAD to be a helicopter, so i got on with other stuff. But when after 10 minutes i saw it was still there and had not changed position much, i decided to photograph it. These pictures were taken with an 8 second exposure. I zoomed one using iPhoto. The object is not something i recognise. It is probably some sort of balloon/blimp. But it would be interesting to know what type, and what it was doing. It continued slowly, progressing inland away from Jersey City for about an hour, the flashing red light very prominent and visible. My friends' kids came in not long after i had photographed it and I pointed out the object to them. It must have been seen by thousands. I am sure there is a sensible explanation."

  1. I saw it too from the Jersey side of the river

  2. Hi, i live in a city about 15 miles north/west of Montréal. On tuesday 30th at 21.30 (already dark at that time) a saw "something" wich a didn't know what it was. It flyed almost over my head, maybe lower than a commercial flight. I did not heard any sound and it had red lights flashing very fast, like a stroboscope, but for sure not like a regular plane. I had time to take my binoculars and looked at it about 15 seconds. It was going from east to west a little faster than a commercial plane. What i saw wasn't a plane's shape it looked like something round/oval with a kind of halo around it. Today, sept. first, when i opened your site the first thing i see is those pictures from New-York. What i saw, from my angle (don't forget it was almost over my head) looked like it was thinner than those pictures but the red lights look like the same thing. I reported my observation to two ufo's group in Québec and did not received an answer back, yet.
