Breaking: UFO Event Over New York City



Click for video

Here's another video link

OK...well, I just received a few phone calls from associates in New York City. There seems to be some kind of event. I'm not sure what is happening but I'll try to update...Lon

NOTE: I also heard that there was a ruckus at the Indian Point nuclear facility sometime early today.

UPDATE - 6:08 pm:
xomba - New Yorkers are claiming to have seen a UFO today hovering above the city. It has been speculated that the sightings were just an observation of balloons, however there are many people claiming that these are definitely alien spacecraft.

The dots in the sky were very high up and looked yellow and circular in shape. There were approximately three of them hovering in the air.

A lot of this chatter has started up because of a retired NORAD officer who made claims that aliens would make contacts with humans on October 13th, 2010 in a book.

There are many people on social media websites that are claiming to have seen strange lights in the sky today. No doubt, many people are keeping their eyes towards the sky due to this retired officers claims.

There are multiple other sources claiming to have seen over a dozen silver objects floating over New York City as well.

UPDATE - 6:14pm: The Huffington Post is now claiming that these are balloons. I'll keep looking for updates...


UPDATE - 6:33pm: nydailynews - Mystery shiny objects floating over Manhattan spark UFO frenzy

A mysterious shiny object floating high over Manhattan's West Side set off a flurry of reports and wild speculation Wednesday that a UFO was flying over the city.

Police and the FAA said they began getting flooded with calls starting at 1:30 p.m. from people reporting a silvery object hovering high over Chelsea.

Law enforcement sources said they believed the object was likely some sort of balloon, but as of late Wednesday they had not confirmed exactly what it is.

A Daily News reporter could see a tiny, silver dot floating approximately 5,000 feet above 28th St. and Eighth Ave., where dozens of people gathered late in the afternoon to catch a glimpse.

"It's been hovering there for a while. I'm just kind of baffled," said Joseph Torres, 49, of Dyker Heights, Brooklyn, who spotted the object after leaving a movie. "How can it be ordinary? There is something going on."

Despite clear skies, it was not easy to make out the tiny object shimmering overhead.

"You really have to look up to see it," said one witness, who gave only his first name, Rico. "It's a little crazy. I guess that's why they call it an unidentified flying object because they don't know what it is."

Not long after the first sightings, messages began appearing on Twitter linking to a month-old press release announcing the publication of a book by a retired NORAD officer predicting that UFOs would buzz the earth's major cities on Oct. 13.

The Federal Aviation Administration said it received dozens of calls to its operations center but after reviewing radar data, the agency could not find anything out of the ordinary.

"We re-ran radar to see if there was anything there that we can't account for but there is nothing in the area," said spokesman Jim Peters. "There was some helicopter traffic over the river at that time and we checked with LaGuardia Tower. And they said they had nothing going low at that time."

"Nothing that we can account for would prompt this kind of response," he said.

Peters said if it was a weather balloon or any kind of organized balloon release, the NYPD should have been notified in advance. Police officials said they had received no notification.

Dang it! Two UFO sightings over two of Americas largest cities. On each coast. The one over NYC apparently with several UFOs. And on October 13th!

And I had laughed at the ex-NORAD officer, Stanley Fulham, who had predicted that October 13 would be the day of a massive UFO displays over many of the Earth's principal cities. Yeah, it's not nearly the "massive display" and there's been no attempt at communication and disclosure as far as we can tell. But it's juuuuust near enough that Fulham can (and will of course) claim that the masters of space and time really did chose some retired bureaucrat to share the secrets of life in the universe with.

And so there will be anew round of interviews and plugs for his book. Expect George "I've Never Met A Loon I Didn't Believe Or A Con Man I Didn't Trust" Noory to get him back on CoastToCoast tonight or tomorrow.

Dang, I hate it when this happens.

UPDATE: It begins...

The NY Daily News, the NYC paper w/the second-largest number of readers after the NY Times (okay, and the Wall Street Journal, but that's a national business paper) has the story about "shiny objects" hovering over Manhattan.

Address: //www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/2010/10/13/2010-10-13_mystery_shiny_objects_floating_over_manhattan_spark_ufo_frenzy.html

The FAA says "move along, nothing to see here", and police suspect it's "balloons". I've seen one story elsewhere that says it's kids who have hoaxed a UFO sighting, but how do free-floating balloons "hover"? So I can't figure out if there was any source for this no-UFO spin, or if it was just a disinformation attempt to muddy the waters.

Also, as predicted, some UFO sites are claiming that ex-NORAD officer Stanley Fulham has a 100% hit on his predictions about the sightings yesterday. *sigh*

Here's the story at a site called "UFO Disclosure Countdown Clock" -

I really can't understand people! Is it really that difficult to see that these are two completely seperate things? Obviously the last picture is a bunch of balloons. But the first picture is definitely not balloons! Come on! We are talking about two seperate instances. The press is using the balloon conclusion to explain all of the objects that were seen. Also, I saw a news story on it that took place at night, and there were strange lights in the sky in the same exact spot. Also, eye witnesses said they saw HUNDREDS of objects. Not just a "bunch" of them.

UPDATE II: Fish, Barrel, Smoking Gun. Speaking of predictions, I claim a hit on MY prediction that on 10/13 or 10/14 Good ol' Georgie Noory would weave the NYC UFO sighting into a positive spin about the ex-NORAD-officer's book predicting that on 10/13 countless UFOs would hover over the earth's major cities to begin The Disclosure. Well, there it was at the top of the 2d half-hour last night, 10/14, when George ooohed and aaahed over the book and one.more.time solemnly told us, "there are no coincidences".

I like George Noory, because he sounds like a sweet guy. But as anyone knows who has listened to him ask the same question three times, or ask something which the guest has just spent 5 minutes explaining in detail, unfortunately he's not very smart.

And NJDM, you're absolutely right that there's no way those are chintzy little party balloons which some school kids released earlier in the day. Besides, the UFOs were seen throughout most of the day into the night, and I've never heard of party balloons hovering for several minutes, even hours. And finally, the UFOs were first seen many hours before the start of the party at which the balloons got away. So take that, NYPD and FDNY.

I was actually offended by how quickly "police and fire sources" put out the story to the NYC media that the UFOs were really just schoolkids' party balloons. (How the hell are they supposed to know that - the lost-balloon hotline?) The story was classic disinformation, since it was so completely incredible, but yet it came out so fast and created such confusion, that if you hadn't already looked at the videos and had seen how there was no way those were balloons, the disinformation story probably would have made you just blow it off as another mistaken sighting.

I feel like the kids on South Park:
"They killed the UFO story!" "Bastards!"

You know, just 5 years ago I would have described myself as more skeptic than not. But through a combination of the overwhelming number of events for which there is no earthly explanation; the high credibility of witnesses to so many sightings; and my disgust over the heavy-handed, clumsy and obviously bogus attempts by government agencies to sow confusion and disbelief, I have been transformed into a believer in many UFO sightings/encounters/implantings/abductions. I bet I'm not alone, and that there are thousands upon thousands who were also radicalized in their views about UFOs by their disapproval of the way the government abused our trust.

How odd: the way it's supposed to work is that I get more conservative and skeptical as I get older; not the other way around!

UPDATE III: Okay, if I'm this good just call me "Ed Dames" so Noory will drool over me.

My 10/13 prediction is now officially 100% correct, because Stanley Fulham, the ex-NORAD officer who predicted the UFOs over majpr cities on 10/13, was just the 1st-hour guest on CoastToCoast AM.

I didn't hear it so I don't know: did George treat Fulham with the open-eyed awe usually reserved for demi-gods? Or need I ask?
