Mysterious Light Puzzles Albany Man

UFO Shot By  Brian Wright (B)

     Brian Wright of Albany saw a circular, bright light in the eastern sky about a year ago, and he’s wondered about it ever since.

He said he called the military and cable news organizations right after he saw the object, but no one seemed to be interested, and he couldn’t find anyone else who had seen it. Then with recent reports of UFOs spotted elsewhere in the country, he contacted the Democrat-Herald.

Wright, 30, a stay-at-home dad who attended both South and West Albany high schools, said he’d shot a video and wanted us to view it and run a photograph of the thing in the newspaper.

He said it happened about 10 p.m. Feb. 5, 2007, and he and a friend, Joal Traynor, were talking outside of Wright’s townhouse on Queen Avenue near Hill Street.

“Out of the blue, something came up out of the eastern sky toward Lebanon,” he said. “It was a bright light that looked like fire.”

When it moved toward Albany, Wright dashed into his apartment to get his camcorder so he could record the event. The video is jerky, as Wright said he was trying to find the object through his lens and then had trouble focusing because it was moving so fast.

Just as quickly as it appeared in the sky, the object made a sharp turn toward the southeast and disappeared, he said.

“I know it wasn’t a plane, a helicopter or a hot air balloon. That was obvious,” he said. “It also wasn’t a flare or a shooting star because it left no trail.”

Wright said he called the Albany police but was told no one else had reported seeing anything unusual in the sky.

“My friends are skeptical even though they’ve seen the picture, but they can’t explain what it is,” he said.

Wright’s father, Brian Wright Sr., is visiting from California and has a more open mind.

“I believe there are other things out there,” he said.

Brian Wright would like to hear from anyone who has an idea about what he saw.
