Object Zig Zagging Down At 170° Angle

Object Zig Zagging Down At 170° Angle

Date: July 15, 1954

Location: Bridge Hampton, NY

The sighting that I had was located on Long Island took place during the summer of 1954.

I was too young, about 7½ years old at the time, to remember the exact month.

Nonetheless, I know that it was warm because my parents took my sister and I to the local drive-in movie theater.

This theater was located in the town of Bridge Hampton.

Bridgehampton is located to the East of Brookhaven National Laboratory.

The orientation of the screen was so that the patrons of the theater were facing West towards Brookhaven.

The night was clear and warm with a spattering of stars in the sky.

The contrast between the screen and the night sky was stark.

The sky over the screen was jet black except for the stars.

I really don't have an idea of what time that it was however.

I would have to say that it was probably between 9:30 p.m.and 10:00 p.m.

The object was only observed for less then a second however.

It appeared as a bright yellow white light, about as bright as the planet Saturn.

The object moved straight down at a high rate of speed until it disappeared.

It was in a dive of about 170°.

The object oscillated or zig-zagged down behind the movie screen.

The sighting was swift, yet did give a clear image of the light and its rapidly zig-zagging movement.

The reason that I associate this sighting with Brookhaven is because it was definitely in the direction of Brookhaven or West Hampton that had a military air base that is still in use.
