Sighting Details

We were Driving thru Catskill Region returning to New Jersey. Travelling east on Rt. 30 at approx 8pm and upon passing Downsville Dam, I noticed what appeared to be a light on the north bank of the reservoir. I can't say if the light was on the bank or hovering over it. The light at first appeared small but as it headed accross the water, as any object approaching from a distance, it grew in size. My first thought was that it was a power boat with a search light but I knew that no power boats were allowed on the reservoir. It crossed the water at an altitude not higher than 100ft. As it approached the south bank, because the water level was very low at the time, it continued its course up the steep bank to the point at which it intercepted my vehicle on Rt.30. Because of its slow speed my passenger and I were briefly able to clearly view its underside and neither of us noticed any markings, lights, windows, rivets, etc. Absolutely no sound was emitted. It appeared to be equal in size to the width of the roadbed which is a two lane road. Object than accelerated upward and southeasterly and disappeared to the size of a pinpoint in an instant. We were the only vehicle on the road at the time and we concluded that whatever it was, it made a deliberate effort to intercept us. Its now 41 years later and my passenger and I, when passing the sighting site, always bring up the question as to what the devil did we see that night. I decided it was time to go on record for what ever benefit someone could gain from the reporting.
