1879  .....    UFO MOTHERSHIP WAS OVER NEW YORK CITY  

The glowing circular shaped object was observed by Jersey City, NJ Astronomer Mr. Henry Harrison. The object gave the appearance of hovering at a very high altitude, but Harrison realized that an object would have to be moving at great speed in order to remain overhead as the Earth turned. Needless to say, this mystified Harrison as he made his remarkable observations because, like it or not, the object was generally stationary even as the stars rose and set behind it.

He watched the object for the better part of three hours when suddenly it sharply changed its direction and began flying eastward. Harrison made additional observations later that night and quickly ruled out the Brorsen’s comet because the object simply wasn’t there any longer; a comet would have been. Henry was a member in good standing with the Toronto Astronomical Society and realized that he needed to report his findings with an established scientific authority. The next day he sent a telegram to the US Naval Observatory in Washington, DC.

His telegram was discarded by the director, world famous astronomer Asaph Hall III. Upset with getting no response from an esteemed astronomical authority, Harrison wrote a letter to the editor of the New York Tribune. The newspaper published the letter on “A Curious Phenomenon” 17 April 1879.

The contents of Harrison’s newspaper letter concerning his observations were also later published in the May 10th, 1879 edition of Scientific American (Vol 40 Issue 19). Harrison afterwards was swamped with letters from other astronomers and most certainly he caught his share of denigration from his critics about his supposed “sloppy scientific reporting” of the observation. The critics asserted that he probably just saw Brorsen’s comet.

But the rather militant Harrison knew that Brorsen’s comet would only move about a degree a day in the sky. Whereas, his object was moving at a rate of two minutes of Right Ascension per minute, a huge amount, a comet just wouldn’t be doing that. Henry Harrison would ultimately get some peer validation from two New York regional astronomers; Mr. J. Spencer Devoe in Manhattanville and Mr. Henry M. Parkhurst. Devoe published a letter confirming his observation of the object the same night Harrison did and published his measurements at the urging of Parkhurst.

Harrison described his object as circular and bell-shaped and clearly moving under intelligent control. Later, Morris K. Jessup, using a combination of measurements from the three regional astronomers, calculated that the object was over New York City for three hours. He further determined that the object was at an altitude of 80 to 100 miles above the Earth and estimated the bell-shaped object to be about a half mile in diameter.

    This is an old report, but remote viewing gives me something.  It was a Nordic space craft about 90 feet in diameter which hovered a little less than a mile high.  A lot less than Mr. Jessup calculated, but it is a real ET craft sighting.  At least three astronomers reported on it.  So where did the story come from that astronomers never see these things?
