Feedback: Watertown Couple Has Close Encounter?


It was 1 a.m. on Monday.

Heather and Dave Williams of Watertown were driving east on Route 342 in the town of LeRay.

Suddenly, they saw a green light in the sky.

They couldn't tell where the light was coming from.

"We turned the radio down and rolled the windows down and there was no sound at all," said Dave.

Heather grabbed her cell phone and recorded the light.

The Williams say they also saw the light when they turned onto Route 3, but it disappeared after about 20 seconds.

"The light started back up as we drove toward the brown building towards Watertown, then it went off again and that was the last that we saw the light," said Dave

If you're thinking the light the Williams saw could have came from a giant UFO like one in the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," you're not alone. 

"I was thinking ET was coming, you know, ET's evil cousin was on its way or something. Close Encounters of the Third Kind was all I could think of," said Heather.

Experts tell us the light could have been anything including an aircraft.

Air ambulance company Air Methods tells us all helicopters shine red and green lights.

However, officials said the light was not theirs.

Representatives at Fort Drum and Jefferson County Emergency Services said they have no idea what the light could be.

It leaves the Williams to wonder exactly what they saw.
