Attached are photos that I took in 2017, it was spring or summer and I am looking ENE, We reside in the Hudson valley area of NYS. The first two show the up close I did not change or edit these photos I did not see that thing in the air until I downloaded the photos onto the laptop. The lase one in true color you can see that it is not close the clouds looked like they were over the horizon that would be the Berkshire Mt’s. more than 55 miles away. I have sent this photo to Mufon and they said it just a bird now I know it was not even though it looks like one. It was to far away I never would have seen it. There have been many sightings in this area there are many evil religions and ancient N/A that lived here that were into pagan worship. It is not a bird; it would have been too large and would not want to see it if it was a bird for it would have been the size of a single engine plane. I do not know if you want this for your site but feel free to use the photos.
Also when I was 17 and a senior in high school so it must have been in the late 1970s. Maybe ’79, or early spring of 80. I was driving to a friends house that was over 8 miles away. It was dark and in late afternoon for I was to be home by dinner at 6-6:30 well I got about 1/2 mile or so from the house went down hill for we resided on the top of the hill and then there was a flat area then another hill … well when I got to the bottom I saw many lights, yellow, red and orange, on the top of the hill about 1/2 mile away they were in the middle of the road. I thought how strange, then in the blink of an eye the lights were gone but another split second they were in front of me. I was so scared. I thought it might be a helicopter for we lived along the Hudson River area of NY, in Greene county, and the National guard would follow the river while doing exercise, and our neighbors were the grandparents of the officer that lead the helicopter training and would buzz the house to say hello to his grandpa and grandma, so I thought how strange to do this at night.
Well the next thing I recall, I am pulling into my girlfriends house and her parents are flipping out, “where have you been? Your parents are calling and they are very angry and worried. I said why, I just left home about 10 mins ago. They looked at me and said it is 9 PM you left home at 4:30 where have you been? At that point i started to shake and the Mr. said you have to go home. I said I wont go alone, for I told them what happened and they just looked at me. They called my folks and Mr. drove my parents car and Mrs. drove me. I was flipping out when we walked outside and started to cry, and got really upset when we got near the spot where I lost 4 1/2 hours. I got home and my parents did not believe me and grounded me. I did not care I wouldn’t drive at night or dusk for many years after that.
