Greetings...this incident happened in 2011 and I reported it to Ossining town officials and to MUFON...I just watched a tv show that had a young man describing lights like I saw but they flew away into the sky and I was curious to see if there were any reports like mine...at the time MUFON invited me to show up for an interview but I declined as I have health issues and am an 80 year old 3 time cancer survivor...I feel it's important to point out that since a child in grammar school I have been a science based person requiring proof and evidence throughout my life and skeptical of many areas of societies beliefs ...
especially ufo's etc...until the following incident happened to me...I was traveling north along the east side of the Hudson in my 22ft cabin cruiser and it had just become dark as I passed under the Tappan Zee bridge...the only lights on my boat were on the bow...a 6 inch red and green light and I was staying about 100 yds off the east bank keeping the towns lights on my right to stay north to my destination of my dock in Newburgh...I noticed after passing under the bridge about 200 yds ahead of me 2 red and 3 white lights the size of car headlights would be at that distance...shooting back and forth independently as though racing back and forth ...at the distance I was looking at them I said...well...this must be some teenagers on jetskis having some fun....I started to steer left to stay away from them...I was moving very slow about 10 mph and then I saw as I was getting closer that these were lights but no jetskis...shooting back and forth about 3 or 4 feet above the water...now I decided to go closer to see what in the hell am I looking at here...as I got closer they started closing the distance between themselves still shooting back and forth about the same speed as jetskis until....oh btw...this incident took place in about10 or 15 minutes...they came together on the surface now about 50 ft from my boat and I decided then...admittedly a little scared of I didn't know what...to slowly approach to get a real good look...I did...and I looked right over the edge of my boat that I stopped now and the 2 red lights and 3 white lights were the size of grapefruits and formed in a circle the size of a large pizza...what struck me immediately was that the lights were shining UP FROM BELOW as though from bright flashlights...then...and this was really thought provoking...they started to approach each other as though "kissing" ...is the only way I can describe it...and then after a minute or so they started spinning slowly in a circular clockwise motion and faster and faster and spun down into the deep till I didn't see them anymore....
I often think of this incident and wonder but know that I will never know in my short life remaining what in the hell did I witness...have you any reports over the years of similar sightings...sincerely....ss
