George Filer III is 82 years old and currently serves as the New Jersey director of MUFON, which is an American based non-profit association that studies the UFO phenomena.

He revealed that some of the events he experienced in the air are rather inexplicable.

As they were getting nearer, they were able to see lights off in the distance. He described the lights looked something like a cruise ship at night. There were multiple all over the object.
