The Bible states, “Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem, in Judea, during the reign of King Herod.” At about that time some magi (wise men) from the east arrived in Jerusalem, asking, ‘Where is the new born King of the Jews?’ for we have seen his star in the east, and have come to worship him.”
“After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the young child with his mother Mary, and bowed down and worshipped him. Then they opened their gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.” (Mathew-2.)
Editor’s Note – Magi or wise men were astronomers or astrologers who lived in Persia or Babylonia hundreds of miles to the northwest of Jerusalem. They arrived in Jerusalem and spoke to Herod indicating they were likely of high rank possibly Kings or messengers from kings. We assume they were excellent witnesses. They had followed a star for a great distance to get to Jerusalem. Now, they were overjoyed to see the same star that led them to Bethlehem five miles due south of Jerusalem. According to the scriptures the star moved south and stopped over the house where Jesus lived. Stars appear to cross the sky from east to west at 15 degrees per hour as the Earth rotates and do not stop. It would be difficult for the wise men to follow a star both day and night, and a miracle would be required for it to stop and move five miles south. One possible explanation is that they followed the light of a UFO. Of course God and his angels can do almost anything, but the Bible is describing a light moving in weird directions from normal star movement.
ROCKAWAY – On November 26, 2009, at 3:15 PM, we saw what looked like a star moving very slowly west and then stop. It kept moving slowly for about five minutes when it speeded up and we lost sight of it behind a tree. It looked very high up in the sky because some planes passed by and you could see it was beyond them. The location is 25 miles northwest of New York City.
Note: This case deserves the utmost attention. The photo by itself is compelling, but combined with what the witnesses saw makes it more intriguing. The westward movement, stopping, and speed change rules out conventional explanations. The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 20D digital camera with a resolution of 8.2 mega-pixels. The original photo has been edited by the witness to show the enlargement of the object. I don’t believe that the photo has been changed beyond showing the enlargement.

MERCHANTVILLE — On November 21, 2009, I saw a triangle shaped object similar to the Pittsgrove sighting of several UFO’s. I am Ivy League educated as well as a member of Mensa. I was coming home from my friend’s house in Mt. Laurel late Saturday at 11:45 PM, when my girlfriend and I got out of her car and walked to the front of the house. I showed her the Orion Constellation and saw a moving illuminated distinct triangle shaped UFO with a light on the front. The ending or back of the UFO was not clear. It was three times longer and wider than any of the planes in the sky. It was three football fields long and wide. This is the same terminology used by the person in Pittsgrove. The UFO made no noise and was moving at a slow pace due south. My girlfriend also saw it and turned out the porch light to help us see it better. Thanks to MUFON CMS.
