UFOs invade NYC - NYC stands still

UFO panic that stopped the Big Apple | News.com.au


a hoax? real? what do you think?

im just interested to see why UFO's or aliens only seem to be interested in NYC, Washington DC and other places of interest in the USA. I never hear of UFO's in Angola or Botswana, or Ulaan Bator.

Quote:
THE bizarre cluster of shiny objects in the sky that brought bustling New York City to a standstill has the internet abuzz with talk the event was foreshadowed as a UFO phenomenon.

If one retired US Air Force officer and thousands of witnesses are right, UFOs hovered the skies over the Big Apple this week, but they came in peace.

The mysterious balls of light stopped traffic and sparked an alien scare as hundreds of New Yorkers gawped at the hovering globes on Wednesday.

Thousands have since taken to Twitter and social websites to talk about the unidentified flying objects sighting and post videos and photos of the bizarre event.

Although officials could not confirm what the celestial objects were, sceptics believed the objects were balloons used in a promotion event on Broadway in Times Square despite the Federal Aviation Administration reporting that nothing was in that area around that time of day.

But believers cite a September 13 press release for the book Challenges of Change by retired Air Force officer Stanley A. Fulham, which predicted a fleet of UFOs would descend upon Earth's major cities on Wednesday, October 13.

Mr Fulham stated the extraterrestrials would neither land nor make any communication with Earth on Wednesday.

But their presence would be "the first in a series intended to avert a planetary catastrophe resulting from increasing levels of carbon-dioxide in the earth's atmosphere dangerously approaching a 'critical mass'. (...) They are aware from eons of experience with other planets in similar conditions their sudden intervention would cause fear and panic."

He says their contact with Earth is part of their process of leading mankind into accepting the "alien reality and technologies for the removal of poisonous gases from the earth's atmosphere in 2015, if not sooner".

The Federal Aviation Administration said that after reviewing radar information, they only found typical helicopter traffic above the West Side but could not detect anything unusual that would prompt the avalanche of reports they received.

"We re-ran radar to see if there was anything there that we can't account for but there is nothing in the area," spokesman Jim Peters said.

"There was some helicopter traffic over the river at that time and we checked with LaGuardia Tower. And they said they had nothing going low at that time."

It would be nice if someone brought a super powerful telescope with a camera attached to it so they can get a better view of the three lights. I mean seriously, how difficult is it for someone to do this??

I haven't seen the video on that particular one. But I saw video from the last one in China. It was really cool but was probably some weird missile/rocket/drone test.

I don't think balloons can manoeuver that quickly. Looks like jets in the distance.

Lacking the necessary perspective, they sure look like balloons to me...

Personally, I look forward to aliens coming.

At least is clearer then most videos/photos you come across.

"OH look a blurry orange dot being filmed by a guy having a seizure holding a camera with no zoom and 2 seconds of battery power left, must be aliens!"

Pretty cool footage though but as usually there is probably a perfectly rational (ie boring) explanation for it.

They did all seem to be straining their necks while watching.
Definitely surreal. I wonder how many miles up they were.

UFO sighting that brought New York to a halt turns out to be balloons from nearby school | Mail Online

Maybe its just me but back in the day when everything turned out to be "swamp gas"...the world of UFOs just seemed so much awesomer.

Well thats true, BG. Still it is kind of cool how a bunch of balloons got so many imaginations fired up and thinking about aliens and what not.

I'm with the crowd that thinks the balloons are just a cover story.
Here's a link to the article snipped below:

FAA Hiding flight delays?
Michael E. Salla


FAA Westbury Radar Facility was evacuated during October 13 UFO New York sighting.
On October 13, 2010 several dozen UFOs were sighted over Manhattan, New York City. Reports of the sightings began from around 1:30 pm and lasted into late Wednesday afternoon. On being approached by several news media for comment, the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) first reported nothing appeared on their radar. When it was later learned that a school in nearby Mt Vernon had released several party balloons in the sky, many media sources claimed the mystery behind the New York UFOs was solved. What media sources covering the New York UFO sightings failed to mention was that from 6:45 pm of the same day (October 13), the FAA had closed down air operations at New York’s three airports for about an hour.

The FAA claimed that the flight delays were due to a “gas smell” from the FAA radar facility in Westbury that handles New York City flights. According to an Associated Press story on the mysterious gas smell, it led to the radar facility being closed and the evacuation of radar technicians. What’s more likely is that the FAA closed its radar facility and delayed flights due to the UFOs hovering at the time over Manhattan. More importantly, the UFOs may have interfered in some way with the radar equipment. If so, then it appears that the FAA is covering up the true significance of UFOs witnessed over New York City.
...
Is 2010 the year of discovery for extraterrestrial life?
