A witness from Long Island in New York has reported sighting a “humongous” black, cigar-shaped UFO with two bright white lights at both ends over his home close to the Brookhaven National Laboratory.
According to the unnamed witness in a testimony filed as Case 72698 in the archives of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), he spotted a “gigantic” cigar-shaped UFO in the sky over his home in Long Island on the night of November 23, 2015, at about 6:45 p.m. ET.
The witness, who reports frequent sightings of UFOs in the skies over his neighborhood, believes that UFO activity over Long Island is linked with research activity at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, according to Open Minds-TV.
The witness reported that the massive cigar-shaped UFO he sighted on the night of November 23, 2015, moved silently across the sky east-northeast and had two bright white lights, one at each end. He had often watched airplanes flying overhead, thus he was familiar with the sounds and sights of normal aircraft.
What he saw on the night of November 23, 2015, was something very unfamiliar.
“On the night of November 23, at 6:45 p.m. Eastern Time, I observed two bright, white lights with no sound and cigar-shaped moving east-northeast with no sound,” the witness said.
He watched as the UFO gained altitude rapidly until it stopped suddenly and hovered in the sky for over an hour.
While the UFO hovered in the sky, four to five smaller cigar-shaped UFOs approached it in a circle formation. The entire fleet hovered in the sky for several minutes.
“I watched it for a little over an hour. Then I could see four to five other craft in a circle formation around the larger cigar shape craft,” the witness said. “Not the first time seeing these things, but it was the first time that I saw the cigar shape craft so close.”
The witness said Long Island has an unusually high UFO traffic because of the Brookhaven lab in the area.
“I see a lot of strange objects at least four to five times a month and will often use my ultraviolet light to try and signal whatever they are.”
The Brookhaven laboratory is a national laboratory in Upton, Long Island, owned by the United States Department of Energy (DOE). The lab — staffed by 3,000 scientists, engineers, technicians and other support personnel — is operated by the Brookhaven Science Associates LLC.
It conducts research in key areas of nuclear physics, environment and energy, neuroscience and medical imaging, and other relevant fields of biology.
According to the witness, the high UFO traffic over Brookhaven is likely linked to current secret research work being conducted at the research facility.
“I think the reason I see so many UFOs here is because of Brookhaven Labs and the tests that they do there,” the witness said. “I can tell you that until you see it, you just might doubt it, but here over Long Island I see a lot of strange UFOs. Even as I write this, the cigar shape object is still out there.”
The witness went to say he has seen several orange-colored lights over the area. But on November 23, the “tremendous, humongous and gigantic” cigar-shaped craft appeared in the sky over his home for over an hour.
The craft was “shaped like a cigar with a tremendous light at each end.”
“It came right over my house!” he said. “There was absolutely no noise or exhaust left behind.”
He also saw orange lights shining from the craft.
“I live close to MacArthur Airport, and I’m familiar with the sound and sights of planes traveling overhead. This huge craft was not something I am familiar with,” he said.
Regardless of one’s opinion about the reliability of this witness, there have been persistent reports of sightings of strange UFOs close to the Brookhaven laboratory in Long Island over the years. Due to the persistence of these claims, scientists working at the facility have had to deny rumors of strange UFO-linked research activity at the laboratory.
Skeptics have also sought to debunk these claims, including rumors of underground UFO facilities at the laboratory and sightings of UFO crashes over the island.
