Looking Back On 2022

A New Jersey witness at Vincentown reported watching a rectangle-shaped object that appeared to follow his vehicle at 12:24 a.m. on March 29, 2022, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

The report states that the witness was driving to his girlfriend’s home after work along Route 70 east “getting close to the first circle.”

“I saw lights in the sky across the circle,” the reporting witness stated. “I thought it was a helicopter because it was not moving but the lights looked strange.”

The witness drove around the circle and back onto Route 70 and noticed that the object was now on his left side.

“It looked very long. Saw two large, white lights on each side with multiple blueish-green lights.”

The witness then drove “to the next circle” and got onto Route 72 and traveled about 12 miles.

“I saw the UFO fly straight across. It also had two white lights that were pulsing and many green lights covering it.”

The witness then traveled about 3 more miles and was checking his mirrors and noticed an object in the rearview mirror.

“It looked like it was pretty far behind. It was coming towards me and then it turned off the side into the woods. It had two horizontal orange lights and white lights on each side.”

The witness report details include the witness noticing that the object "made no noise."

“The UFO seemed to be following me.”

The report included no images, filed on March 31, 20-22. The witness report does not include a New Jersey town, but a scan of roadways shows that Route 70 and Route 72 intersect in Vincentown. Witness quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to NUFORC or to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

A New Jersey witness at Cape May Court House recalled an encounter with three hovering bright lights at 9:30 p.m. on February 21, 1963, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

The witness report details that the event occurred during the “height of the worst Northeaster the Jersey Cape had” in the witness’s lifetime. The incident date is approximate as it may have been 1962 or 1963.

The witness and two high school buddies were cutting through backyards in their neighborhood. The clouds were very low to the ground and the winds were at gale force.

“Three extremely bright lights stopped overhead and hovered,” the reporting witness stated. “That is to say, they never stopped moving, but they didn't change direction (up, down, forward, back) for several minutes.”

The lights then continued moving in a pattern that the witness stated could best be “likened to someone braiding rope." The witness reasoned that the lights could not have been rotating spotlights on a helicopter.

“I don't know how you would get lights to rotate in that fashion. The movement was also unaffected by the gale-force winds. Except for the unusual pattern, there was no other movement.”

The witness report also details that there was no other sound other than the wind blowing through the trees.

“These lights could not have been more than 300 feet off the ground. Because of the intensity of the lights, you could not see any other details. This event scared me so much, I remember it like it was yesterday.”

The witness has since lost track of the other two individuals involved.

The report included no images, filed on April 10, 2004. Cape May Court House is an unincorporated community in Cape May County, population 5,573. Witness quotes were edited for clarity.
