I am a crane operator in NJ. My partner and I just started up the 250 ton American Crane, and we were talking by the cab standing on the cat walk. I notice a light moving straight up the Hudson River going north. I said to my partner look at that plane it's moving really fast! we both looked in amazement as the object got closer at incredible speed. It was huge, and it was loosing parts or something, it was definitely burning. As it passed over the World Trade Center it left a puffy cloud, from our point of view it was directly over the towers. As it passed us, I remebered that I had a camera. It was a low resolution digital camera. After I snapped the picture, the object split perfectly into three parts. One went straight, and one went to the right and the other went to the left in perfect synchronization as all three descended. My son was working a few blocks away and he and some others saw it as well, but not the split. Where we were we had the advantage because we were right by the river. later that day there was a report on the radio that this object was seen as for as South Carolina, and they said it was an old Russian Space Ship. To this day I don't believe that story. It was never mention again on any news, television or newspaper. It was big! and you can hear it roaring as it went by. On the left of the photo is the edge of the boom of the crane, it had to be about 75 miles or more passed us when I took this picture. Again it was big!
