Go Back Report # 285


RECENT 1st Person Witness Report:

9-64: Colonie, N.Y., Albany County

Three boys were target practicing at a sand pit in Colonie when they noticed a strange light moving slowly over the tree tops on the hill opposite. The light was silent and approached slowly until it was within 200 feet and they could make out a circular object with a bubble top. The edge was rimmed in lights and another light was at the top of the object. As the object passed over the water of a small pond, they saw three foot waves erupt beneath the object. The three boys then ran from the site.
This reference: e-mail received from Larry Clark MUFON-FI, February 26, 2000:


Original reference: MUFON file.

Note: A question has arisen regarding the wave height, highlighted in green. Is it:

1) Three one-foot high waves, or

2) Three-foot high waves.

At this point Im sure that its too late to get a corrected account of this file. Also missing from the account is an approximate height of the craft above the water, which might give us a clue as to whether the field was responsible for creating the waves.
