What was floating in the skies over North Jersey on Monday evening that made people stop, look and record?

Video from drivers who stopped along Route 21 showed a cylindrical object with blimking light moving slowly in the sky.

"Look, the whole f***ing street is stopped. There's a f***ing flying spaceship," a man's voice says in a YouTube video.

Another video posted to Twitter called it "New Jersey UFO sighting." Another tweet claimed a body came out of the craft.

But comments to a Reddit post from people with a different view of the sky seemingly solved the mystery: it was a Goodyear blimp hovering in the area of MetLife Stadium for the Giants season opener.

Route 21 is about 5 miles west of the stadium.

Goodyear on Tuesday afternoon did not respond to New Jersey 101.5's request for more information.
