It was about 10:20 p.m. on June 2nd 2000 when a couple of Mineola, NY residents noticed something in the northern sky that appeared to be wobbling back and forth. The two brothers scrambled for a set of binoculars that they had. After a few minutes of observation one of the young men exclaimed, “It’s a UFO.”
The other man was skeptical and thought it might be a commercial aircraft and snatched the binoculars for a look.
He tells us, “I took the binoculars and zeroed in on the object. I could not believe what I saw. It was not an airplane.”
What the two young men observed a rare cylinder UFO that eventually turned some 30 degrees to the right and disappeared in the haze.
Six days later on 8 June 2000, a Staten Island, NY resident witnessed a huge cylinder UFO with an estimated 400 lights on it.
