7-17-03 CHERRY HILL NEW JERSEY
This was my first sighting and it took place between 345-350 am, July 17, 2003 over Cherry Hill NJ, in the sky above 3 Executive Campus. I work the night shift and had just finished eating a quick meal. As I was leaving the car I just stood transfixed for a moment admiring the stars on a fairly clear night and thinking of how massive and amazing the universe really is. Immediately after thinking that, I had a sudden instinct to look directly at a northeast area of the sky.
At first I hadn’t noticed much, but then a moment later I noticed what looked like a dim blueish star, moving across the sky at a slow speed. At first I thought it could be a plane maybe, but there were no flashing lights and this object had a steady blue glow, was very very high up, silent, and appeared to be disguising itself to appear as a star. Im not sure what gave the blueish glow or if it was simly a reflection of moonlight off this object.
It was quite small in size but possibly larger and was possibly many miles into the atmosphere. It looked to be about the same size a small star appears. As I watched the object, it moved across the sky about a hundred feet at a slow steady speed. In my head at that moment I thought to myself, Is this really a UFO Im seeing. At the very moment that thought came into my head the object stopped, then instantly pulsated and expanded into a spherical ball of pure brilliant white light, roughtly 20 times the size it was before. It held that form for about 1 second, during which, I heard myself say Whoaa. It then returned to its previous color and shape. It continued to travel along at the same rate as before for about 3 seconds more, then accelerated to incredible speed in the same direction and vanished into space.
