UFO Sighting Report


May, 1959


Mountainside, New Jersey, United States


As a child, I was out after dark with kids in the neighborhood on the mountain above our homes when we spotted 5 disc-like objects silently flying overhead in a v-formation. It was spring so it was a warm night, just after sunset.

Date Reported:

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

5 discs with no distinct color or markings. Dark. Silent. Fast.

Size of Object(s)

They appeared to be exactly the same in size, etc. I would say my hands would be about 2 ft apart, but only guessing here.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Guess would be about less than 10k feet above us.

Description of Area / Surroundings

This was a wooded area. Developed now.

Full Description & Details

The sighting of these UFOs seemed to coincide with the fact that just over the mountain from where we were was a military missle silo containing an anti-ballistic rocket with a nuclear warhead. This silo was in the Watchung Mountains in Mountainside, a suburb of NYC, that has long been dismantled. The UFOs seemed to appear out of nowhere from the direction of NYC - which we could see from a distance of 35 miles or so. They hovered for a short while (30-40 seconds), then continued to fly towards the silo (which we could not see) and then took off. Totally silent and smooth. BTW This area is in the Adirondack/Appalachian mountain range, just southwest of the Hudson Valley about 80 miles or so. It is called "first mountain" because it is the first one west of Manhattan.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Nothing man-made about these objects.

Witness Background

I do not give out personal info

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Know there is activity out there. Had never thought about UFOs before the incident.

Other Comments

Have not been able to forget this nor lose the sense of amazement I felt at the time. Even though I was a child of 10 years, I was well aware of my surroundings..
