I am not sure of the exact date but I witnessed it around July-August 2013, the photo is unedited and was taken in Valley Stream on Long Island. There was a mild rainstorm prior to the photo and it was clearing as I took it.
My girlfriend at the time went out on the deck and saw it and called me over. I did not believe UFO’s have ever visited earth prior to seeing this. We watched the object for about ten minutes and it was either stationary or moving extremely slowly.
I am not sure of the size but at the time I thought it was a bundle of mylar balloons but after watching it knew that was impossible since its shape was not changing like balloons do in the wind and it was not moving.
When I was looking at it closer I noticed what looked like a sphere of whitish vapor surrounding the object.
We watched the object for ten minutes and then I went inside to grab a telescope and it was gone by the time I got back out.
Do you have an idea on what this might be? Post your thoughts below!
