BRIGHT FLYING DISK REPORTED IN JERSEY

Special to The New York Times

WANAQUE, N.J., Jan. 13. -- For the second night in a row, residents of this and neighboring Ramapo mountain community have reported seeing an unidentified flying object hovering, soaring and diving over the countryside and disappearing in the distance.

Most accounts of the object including those by two policemen and a guard at the Wanaque Reservoir, agreed that it was "very white, very bright and much bigger than a star." to some it appeared as a "big white disk."

Wanaque Mayor Harry T. Wolfe was among those who reported seeing the object. He drove to the reservoir after having been alerted by local police.

The first report came to the local police radio station at 6:30 P.M. Tuesday. After receiving about 30 phone calls from residents and motorists, the radio monitor called Wanaque Patrolman Joseph Cisco.

He was told that "people in Oakland, Ringwood, Paterson, Totowa, Wayne and Butler claim there's a flying saucer over the Wanaque." there were additional reports of the object last night.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 13 (AP). -- The Air Force said today that two sightings in the sky over New Jersey were believed to have been the planet Venus and Jupiter, rather than unidentified objects.
