Garden State traffic slows for ‘saucer shaped disc’

A New Jersey witness at Montvale reported watching a “saucer-like disc” that appeared to be 150 feet across, according to testimony in Case 68943 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness admits not being able to recognize the object first seen about 10:15 p.m. on July 22, 2015, shortly after passing the Montvale service area along the Garden State Parkway from the northbound lanes.

“My view of the object was extremely clear and distinct,” the witness stated. “It appeared to be some 150 feet across and about one-half mile away when I was closest to it just above the tree line to the east.”

The object appeared to be hovering.

“It seemed to be moving slowly to the north or was stationary as I was able to get much closer to the object driving toward the New York State Thruway.”

“As I headed further north, it seemed to have changed its appearance. From my vantage point, it appeared brightest on the bottom with a golden glow, fading further up the object to orange, reddish, and then dark on top. Despite the apparent change, it was still well illuminated, apparently from within, having taken on an overall dusky orange color with what I recall were three red lights on the bottom. The rim appeared to have tilted so that the closer portion was lower than the far end. This made the craft look somewhat like the planet Saturn, but much closer, with its orange appearance, dark top, and rim that looked like the ring of a planet. Also, like Saturn, there seemed to be a gap between the rim and sphere.”

“As cars on the Garden State drove northbound, almost all slowed down dramatically, whether because their occupants were afraid of it or they simply wanted a better look. I was also driving northbound in the area for about 3-4 minutes, and gaps in the tree line enabled my view about one-third of the time.”

    Is the UFO supposed to be visible in the photographs? I don’t see anything. It would be helpful if the object was featured, circled, or pointed to. As it is, I can’t notice what I am apparently supposed to notice.

    I did see a blurry, metallic orb which was close and obviously not 150 feet across. What gives?

      The original report is from Mufon Case 68943. The Openminds.tv article was put together based on the eye witness testimony in that report. The person that filed the report did not have photos. Openminds.tv used the google images for illustration to show the general area where the Mufon case filer was talking about. If you did see something in the google photos, that may be something else to look into. 🙂
