Diamond-shaped UFO reported hovering over NY lake

A New York witness at Conesus reported watching a diamond-shaped UFO “larger than a plane” hovering over a lake, according to testimony in Case 65105 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was driving home about 12:15 a.m. on May `1, 2015, when the object was first seen.

“I got to the top of a hill that overlooks the lake I live on about four miles away from my house,” the witness stated. “I right away noticed a very bright and distinct light just hovering over the lake that I live on.”

The witness described the object.

“It was in the shape of a square and it was brighter than a star, and only a few stars were in the sky that night.”

The witness continued driving and moved closer to the object.

“As I got closer and closer it still was not moving at all, so I rolled my windows down and turned off the radio to listen to see if I could hear anything like a helicopter. Nothing. I could not hear a sound at all.”

The witness continued driving thinking that the object might be a Chinese lantern.

“Once I got close enough to be right under it (however, I was on the road and it was over the lake to my left) I saw that it was some sort of an aircraft. However, it was in the shape of a diamond. It had the large square light so bright on the front peek, the outer two peaks had flashing red lights on them and the back side had a flashing white and green light.”

The object was also very low.

“It was lower than any plane I had ever seen fly in that area. It slowly started to fly over my head and back north down where I had just come from as I drove under it – still making no sound at all. When I turned around to try and get a good look, it as gone into the darkness.”

The witness attempted to take photos of the object.

“I took two photos on my phone, but when I went to show my father the next day, they were not there. Not sure if while I was driving they didn’t come out or what happened.”

  2. I believe him! I saw same thing floating over Mather AFB, for two hours, back in 1980. With a lot of helicopters and air plane flying around under it. NO JOKE!

  3. I seen this same object coming from school and I have video. The video only shows the object flying away and it looks like a star. In February I was leaving school and got a flat tire. I called my family to pick me up and while we were waiting for the tow truck a quite object was flying low with a bright spot light. I though it was a helicopter because it was so low. It looked like a solar cell controlled by plasma. It’s shape was that of a diamond and had a green light at the back. I didn’t know what it was and it just suddenly turned on its plasma controllers and it looked the corona of the sun. It felt like the aircraft had a soul. Me and my daughter staired at it and she thought it was a kite because of how it revealed its shape and color, a bright orange red solar cell looking object. It must have sped off in a second, all I remember is grabbing my phone and recording it and it was already at least 2 to 3 miles away.

  4. I live in Westchester, ny and have been seeing this diamond shaped object in the sky for about 2 weeks. It is very,very bright and I have only seen it between 3am and 6:45 am. It is not out when the stars come out at night.
