Another Dragon Over New Jersey

Last week, I reported on a sighting of a dragon flying over south New Jersey. Since then, I received the following account:


I just read your post about the dragon sighted over southern New Jersey. It took me by surprise because I had a similar experience in the mid-eighties when I was still a kid (about ten years old, I think).

It was before noon, in the springtime, and I was biking around a local ballpark by my house. (Nottingham baseball field in Hamilton, NJ). There were no games scheduled that day so I was alone, as far as I could tell.

There was a play area and a pond by the woods that I would frequent, when I was bored, in the hopes of finding other kids to play with.

About halfway there, while looking up at the clouds and sky, I saw what I thought was a plane coming from the south. There's a small air strip by us and there were some very cool bi-planes that would fly by from time to time. My favorite was a red baron style one, and I thought that was it, because of the color.

I stopped and turned to watch (and wave, it's what kids do). When the plane gave it's wings a single, long, flap, that's when I realized it wasn't a plane.

It was a dragon. There is no doubt in my mind. It was dark red and I could see the sun shimmering off it's scales as it got closer. Needless to say, I didn't wave. I felt frozen to the spot, dumbstruck, a little scared, and very, very excited.

It was huge, flying at about the same height as the bi-planes do, and it didn't make any sound as it went overhead. just gliding. It was like a classical European dragon, but the proportions were a little different.

When it was right overhead I felt a blast of heat. I assumed it was it's fiery breath at the time. I was absolutely vibrating with excitement and looking around frantically for anyone else that might be around. the ballfields were empty, no one was outside in the nearby houses!

It kept going at a steady clip and right before it disappeared over the tree line to the north it gave another slow flap of it's massive wings.

I turned right around and sped out of the park hoping to find someone else who saw it too. No one, everyone was inside their homes that early. When I got home I realized no one would believe me. So I never told my parents. They'd think I was making it up. Instead I told my older sister, but she said I probably saw a hang-glider or a fancy plane.

It was such an odd sighting I never perused it further. Nice to see the dragons are still flying over New Jersey though. Thanks for all you do, your blog is awesome. D
