It happened in the summertime, probably July, I am not sure if it was 2002 or 03, or 04... I was afraid to tell.. I was outside in Belmar Marina, it was about 12am - 1am. We had just finished loading our boat up for the summer, it was one of our first big weekends there since school let out. Our kids were in their staterooms sleeping, and although I was physically tired, I was too wound up to sleep just yet. I wanted to relax so I was lying out on the nose of the boat looking up at the stars, it was very dark this night, not too many lights were on in the area around the marina or the surrounding area streets, the weather was clear, sky visibility was crystal clear, you could see for miles..., very slight breeze, about 70 degrees or so, and like everywhere else, you can always see the sky better when you are in an area with no lights like the ocean or mountains etc.,. So the boat is in the water, I am on the nose staring up at the sky and I see what I thought was a star at first, at first it appeared so far away, it was amoungst the other stars, I always look for the big dipper because that is the only constellation I know, and this object was as high up as the big dipper but from my possition to the right of it,(if you look at your pinky finger horizontally up in the sky with one eye to use it as a measuring devise, this object was two pinky fingers away or so from the big dipper)anyway, I have seen what "falling stars or shooting stars" look like, I have seen them in Plano Tx, and Montauk LI, and this was not like that at all. Then I noticed it was moving, but I thougt it must be me or the boat, so I jumped off the boat onto the cememt docks and kept looking, it was still moving and I know it was because its possition relative to the other stars changed, then i wondered if it could be a satalite or something else because at this point it was still moving in the direction everything else seemed to be going sort of, but then all of a sudden, it stopped on a dime, changed direction and shot straight across the sky in another direction 10x faster than it was originally moving!(again, with the pinky thing, about 2 1/2 pinky lengths) I swear I thought i was nuts so I called another boater over who happened to still be up as well, and he looked up with me, he found the object i was talking about, (or so he said)and we watched it for about 15 seconds, that is a long time, then it stopped again, changed direction again, (now, the total shape it had moved, if you were to draw it on a map, looked like a triangle...)and seemed to shoot straight across the sky at such a speed that if you were to have blinked your eyes, this pin head of light would have moved almost two full horizontal pinky finger lengths by the time you open and shut your eyes!! It was amazing. I know this next part sounds entirely crazy but The entire time I saw it, from begining to end, I felt drawn to watch, and or, compelled to watch this light- and not take my eyes off of it, but at the same time, I felt like it somehow knew I was watching it, even though i was millions of miles away, I felt instinctively like it knew that I personally was watching it, like it knew who i was, where it could find me, and that it could turn around at any moment and "get me in some way" if it wanted to, but it was in just too much of a hurry to come back right now... You will never, ever make me believe that it was- spacejunk, spacedust, spacecrap, halucionations, or whatever, because objects just don't move like that, in an apparent pattern unless something/someone is moving it, and I do not drink alcohol nor was I on any medication that night, (or previous night!). I have had a fear of UFO's all my life, ever since I was a little kid, before I even knew what UFO's were, I don't know why, and I don't want to know why either. My husband and friends are always laughing and taking cheap shots at my belief in UFO's but, I swear I saw something that night that was unidentified and unexplainable too.
