New Jersey

'UFO' over NJ has a simple explanation. (Don't call Mulder and Scully.)

But that didn’t stop some from thinking aliens had decided to visit North Jersey Monday night.

People in Bergen, Passaic and Essex counties were captivated enough by a flying spheroid with a glowing bottom that they pulled over on the side of the road to take videos.

On closer inspection, the object was nothing more than a Goodyear blimp, flying over a Giants game at MetLife Stadium.

The tire company’s airship was positioned at the East Rutherford venue as the Giants lost to the Steelers , 26-16, in their home opener.

Still, those who were far enough away to mistake the blimp for something else ran with the whole UFO thing, speculating that this was just the latest development in a disastrous 2020.

For an evening at least, New Jersey had become something like the movie “Independence Day," infusing social media with what amounted to a diversion from weightier issues like the pandemic and wildfires in the West.
