"(It was) a giant, dark-colored boomerang object of immense size hovering briefly over an over pass of nearby Sunrise Highway. It was slowly moving ... It was dark-colored, either black or dark grey, with no markings. As the craft passed overhead, (I) saw neither windows nor engine nacelles on the craft. Its surface was perfectly smooth. ... it was unusually quiet when the object drew near. There were no bird or insect noises."
- James Fitzgerald, Gardner's State Park, Long Island, New York, September 4, 1989
