The witness was sitting in his living room at 10:30 p.m. on August 15, 2018.
“My daughter was in her room right next to me,” the witness stated. “My brother lives in the apartment upstairs from me. We own the house and property. My daughter’s boyfriend was sitting outside in the car with one of his friends. I was watching TV with the lights on, when out of nowhere the lights dimmed to almost turning off. They stayed that way for about two seconds and then came back up. The TV picture only flickered. Right after the lights came up, this loud sound was heard outside. It sounded like an electrical transformer started buzzing, but extremely loud. My daughter came into my room and asked if I heard that. I told her, yeah, I think it was outside. With that my brother and his daughter and son came out into the hall and confirmed that his lights did the same thing and heard the same noise. My daughter’s boyfriend came in the house and asked if we all heard it. He said he was sitting in the car and was looking behind my house and looked up in the sky and saw a black object just sitting there. He said out loud, what the hell is that?, and his friend said, you see it, too? He said, yeah, only his friend was looking in the other direction. So, there were two. He said it was huge, bigger than a plane and round. He said as he was looking at it he heard the loud buzzing. He said it sounded like a power surge. When he heard it, the object lit up around it in a bright light and they both took off and nothing after that. Neighbors came out of their houses also.”
New York MUFON Field Investigator Jonathan Schwartz closed this case as an Unknown-Other.
