A UFO was photographed over Johnson City, according to August 4, 2011, testimony from the MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) witness reporting database. A witness at Binghamton, NY, reported observing an object “as large as a football stadium” hovering over nearby Vestal that “shot up and vanished”.
The original sighting occurred when the witness was standing in a parking lot at Lourdes Hospital along Riverside Drive in Binghamton.
“He observed the object over the hill, across the river in what would be Vestal, NY,” the MUFON investigator stated. “The object appeared huge at this point, ‘as large as a football stadium’. Object was stationary and then shot up and vanished.”
But 20 to 30 minutes later, the same witness was driving home along Riverside Drive in Johnson City when the object was seen again, but higher in the sky.
“Witness pulled onto a side street and took two pictures. He observed the object for approximately two minutes before it again shot straight upward and away.”
The witness reported that there were additional witnesses in the hospital parking lot, but did not know their identities and that others had posted reports at the television station Web site saying they had seen the object too.
