While enjoying a bite to eat at a beach in Setauket, someone noticed what he or she thought was a UFO leaving a trail through low cloud cover on July 2.
According to the website UFOstalker.com, an oval-shaped object was observed noiselessly flying over Setauket on July 2 for a period of two minutes. The description of the sighting reads:
"The sky was covered in a solid mass of thick clouds and the ceiling was low in preparation for heavy, late night thunderstorms. I happen [sic] to look up and noticed a trail in the cloud cover. Looking closer I realized there were two trails traveling in parallel. I could visually follow something which was traveling just under the bottom of the ceiling. It disturbed the cloud cover, and left the parallel trail behind as it moved."
