PATERSON, NEW JERSEY.
Few and far between has there been a time that I have ever considered mentioning the day in the late 70's in Paterson when I was standing in front on my front yard with my brother. In fact, since I personally laugh and take the entire UFO sighting thing as nonsense, it is almost crazy that I am even taking my time to write here. A lot of my feelings about the stories come from the stereo type of so many of the people that spend their days trying to tell their stories. I think, STILL, that 99.8% of the stories are from people that are a bit off in the head.
I read this article on
about someone else seeing a UFO in Paterson.
The ONLY reason that I decided to add my comment is because when I read it, I thought...hmmm, I don't recall writing this! Thats because I did not write it. Someone else has and seems to have seen exactly what I did back in the 70's. I have never told a soul about that day. My brother never, ever talked about it. I always just took that as (he didn't see it). I clearly remember saying ~DID YOU SE THAT??? And recall him looking up and turning his head to view a wider area of sky and joked about it saying something like "wow" where did it go" but not like he meant it. IT was a weird response for what it was. As if he thought I was kidding.
So, my story is :
I stood in the front yard in Paterson. It was a summer night. One minute it was nice and dark sky and in a flash, it was just there! It was round, huge and very low, multi colored lights and I remember very clearly saying LOOK! And pointed up, and asking my bigh brother what that was! I recall saying it several times and him being who he is, typical response was him kinda bouncing and saying don't know and smiling really big. I remember sitting there thinking to myself, in Paterson? Did everyone else in the neighborhood see it? Who do we tell? Should we call the police?
Then time passed, big brother never said anything else about it as if it where a boring rainbow or an airplane passing!!! Summer vacation was over, back to school, not a word ever mentioned. As if it were only me. Years passed, nothing. I have always wondered about it. Then one day I got the nerve to mention it to my husband. To this day he never asked me to say more about it, not one word. I guess he thinks I am one of those people that I TOO don't believe. I guess he thinks I am little crazed for even THINKING that I may have seen this. I always thought that my by my own husband not talking about it to me, says to me that he thinks I am making it up because if I did see it, then why am I never talking about it or telling people or freaked out by the whole episode.
My answer to all of those questions is just that.
I don't mention it because people will react the same way I react if they told me they saw a UFO. That it is all bs. And mostly, I don't tell anyone because I am not a believer of UFOs. I am bothered that I even question that night. I wish I never saw it so that I can stay on the side of those that laugh at these stories.
I do continue to laugh about the UFO sightings. I will continue to do so. I know people will always laugh at mine so I will end the question in my head and finally put it to rest.
The end of the story on that Summer night is this. I saw the circle in the sky and I only have my memories and sense to figure out what it may have been and if it were ever there at all. I still don't believe most of the stories out there and think many people want to make silly stories and claims of these sightings.
Do I think it was something from out of this world? truthfully.... I did and I still do.

Hey ex-Patersonian Girl... I'm in the same situation as you. I always wanted to find real proof of what these things are but it never came. Then I had my own experience which makes not knowing even worse. I, also, never told anyone. No one was with me when I saw it. I agree with you that most of these stories do sound too unbelieveable but there are just those few that sound like they could be true. My experience was similar to yours but it wasn't a circle. Just seeing something for a moment that wasn't there the moment before and disappeared the moment after made me doubt my senses. I know I saw something but did I see what my eyes were telling me I saw? I'll never know. I let go of it until I came across this website. Who knows... Maybe there will be some sort of answer...
