“But it does not look triangular, so it probably is not a TR-3B.
“However, it is hard to tell as I have never seen a TR-3B in the day time. We only have videos of it shot at night.
“What is that object flying over the Hamptons? That is just incredible isn’t it.
“It is really out in the open, but we don’t hear any engines.
“We don’t see any wings on the object or contrails emanating from it.”
Waring proceeds to zoom in on the UFO to get a closer look at the mysterious white object.

“The object is a little tilted and is coloured like the clouds, with no metallic reflection.”

However, B Baker is less than impressed by the blurry footage, commenting: “Sigh … drone or plane.”
Mysterious footage of a Loch Ness-style creature has sparked an online frenzy in China, amid speculation that it could be a mythical creature. A snake-like creature has been filmed three times in the past week moving through the Yangtze River. In the latest footage, the shocking video shows onlookers stunned by the sight of the creature, which remains unidentified.
China’s government officials have remained silent on the matter, prompting speculation over the identity of the creature.
Thousands of online viewers have discussed whether the creature is an mysterious type of water snake - or something previously unknown.
New footage of the Loch Ness-style monster follows two eerily similar videos last week.
All three appear to show a metre-long black creature slithering through the waters of the Yangtze.
The first video, shot from a ferry dock in Yichang, Central China's Hubei Province, revealed the giant creature's body breaking the surface of the water.
Another clip was filmed at at the Three Gorges Dam Scenic Area, a popular tourist spot in Yichang City.
It is very long and dark, resembling what the Loch Ness Monster has often been described as.
The video has led some online users to both speculate that the creature has been hiding behind the world's largest dam.
Eddie Money, the prolific singer and songwriter whose songs “Baby Hold On,” “Two Tickets to Paradise,” “Shakin’” and “Take Me Home Tonight” soundtracked popular music in the 1980s, died Friday morning. He was 70.

Asteroid are the small rocky bodies that in the inner Solar System, orbiting the Sun. There are millions of them flying around space and their collisions – known as impact events – have played a significant role in shaping many planets One of the most famous impacts on Earth, the Chicxulub crater, is believed to be the remains of a huge space rock that wiped out the dinosaurs.
Scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson claims it is events like this that has led him to question the possibility of God.
During his 2015 Amazon Prime series, “Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains Everything,” the American astrophysicist spelt out his theory.
He admitted: “I have no idea whether there is a God.
“You know, I think people who are deeply religious are also not sure.
“That’s why it’s called faith.
“If you were certain there was a God, you wouldn’t have to call it faith, it would be some other activity.”
Dr Tyson then went on to make it clear that everyone should be allowed to have their own view.
He added: “You know there’s a Wiki page of all the gods that people have ever worshipped and it just scrolls on and on through the history of our species.
“So it’s an intriguing sociological fact that we’ve lived with gods ever since the dawn of our species.
“I can say that if God is benevolent and I look at the universe and I see asteroids that render life extinct.
“There’s an absence of benevolence in the actual universe I see, so that’s always been a point of contention between philosophers and theologians.”
The warning comes after NASA received a warning over the “most dangerous space rock” heading to Earth.
Asteroid 101955 Bennu, formally known as 1999 RQ36, is a potentially hazardous object listed on the Sentry Risk Table with the second-highest cumulative rating on the Palermo Technical Impact Hazard Scale.
Investigators have already warned the space agency that it could be devastating if they do not act.
According to a study by scientist Maria Eugenia Sansaturio the 1999 asteroid may impact the Earth.
Dr Sansaturio warned in a report for the Solar System journal Icarus that there is a good chance of the asteroid striking.
She told Universe Today in 2010: “The total impact probability of asteroid 1999 RQ36 can be estimated as 0.00092, approximately one-in-a-thousand chance, but what is most surprising is that over half of this chance (0.00054) corresponds to 2182.”
However, like all asteroids that pose a threat to life on Earth, NASA has a plan to tackle it.
The space agency is currently running a mission with its OSIRIS-REx spacecraft to find out more about the rock.
