A veteran pilot recently videotaped a formation of lights in the skies over New Jersey that several witnesses also saw.
Paul Hurley captured the red lights in a diagonal formation hovering above his back yard in Whippany.
"A little scary. We didn't really know what they were. They were very bright red lights," Hurley said. "I've been in the aviation industry for about 20 years, so I knew they weren't airplanes."
People outside a Morristown sports arena also saw the lights. Some even called police and local media outlets.
"It didn't seem to be moving at all. It was very distinct, very distinct. I've never seen anything like it," Jason Ragel said. "New Jersey's like the melting pot of the world. So, I guess if it's time for UFOs, if they're coming, they might as well come here first."
"It was kind of strange, just that they looked very like, in a formation, that they had a purpose," Kelly Kaminski said.
Local police said the spectacle might have been a helium balloon with flares attached to it. However, there is not yet an official explanation for the lights.
