Category three hurricane hit Puerto Rico and the Great Antilles in late August 2011. Named as Hurricane Irene, it was considered as the worst storm with 120 mph winds. It caused significant storm surge and flooding, especially in Nissequogue, NY. Pronounce as NISS-ə-kwog, the Suffolk County bayside community is located on Long Island’s north shore.
A local boat owner, identified as Charlie, was so concerned about the safety of his vessel. He decided to check a webcam regularly that monitored the Defeo Marina, located five miles at Port Jefferson, where Charlie’s boat moored. On August 28, Sunday, at around 2:30 pm, Charlie checked the flood condition through the camera.
Charlie then claimed that he saw a large silver object that appeared to be disc type in the sky above the flooded bay. He watched the strange activity for a few minutes as the aerial object hovered while rotating around. His initial thought was a weather balloon, but he noticed that it had lines and did not look like a balloon at all.
Charlie took three images from the live webcam that were around 10 seconds apart. The screenshots show a disc-shaped flying object rotating in the camera.
Unfortunately, Charlie found out upon speaking to the marina management that the live cam was not recorded. Charlie said that there were severe weather warnings during his UFO sighting, and most of the communities were evacuated. He also noted that there were no planes permitted to fly in or out of the regional New York airports during that time. Charlie later decided to file a report along with his photos to Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). His testimony is recorded in MUFON’s witness reporting database, case 31318.
